The Green Bay Packers added wide receiver Jordy Nelson to the weekly injury report after he experienced some tightening in his hamstring. The injury is not considered serious and Nelson should be able to finish out the remainder of the practice week as a limited participant. Green Bay hosts the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8.
Barring a setback, Nelson should be ready to play. This is a juicy matchup against a struggling Jacksonville team. Nelson remains the team's top receiver with Greg Jennings out with a groin injury. In Nelson's last two games, he's collected 17 passes for 243 yards and four touchdowns. Now that Aaron Rodgers appears to have gotten this offense back on track, fantasy owners must consider Nelson a must-start on a weekly basis. The Jaguars rank 28th in the NFL in total defense (411.8 ypg) and 26th in points allowed (27.3 ppg).
