Jordy Nelson, Charles Woodson Ruled Out Against the Titans

Benny Sieu- US PRESSWIRE

 

The Green Bay Packers have been one of the most injured teams in the league for the entire season, but still managed to win the NFC North with two weeks remaining. Now their goal is to get the number two seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs. Just like they have the entire season, the Packers will have to win without some of their key players.

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson has had his hamstring injury for most of the season, but was able to return to the field for a few games. Now for the past two weeks he has been sidelined with the same injury and will miss this weekend’s game against the Tennessee Titans. With Nelson out, it looks like Randall Cobb will be the go to guy for Aaron Rodgers again.

Also on the offensive side of the ball, center Jeff Saturday may also not play this week along with running back Alex Green. Green suffered a concussion last week and has not cleared a concussion test yet. Green is the number one running back ever since Cedric Benson was put on injured reserved early in the season. Ryan Grant will get the majority of the carries if Green is unable to go.

The most disappointing news of the week has to be that veteran cornerback Charles Woodson will miss another week of action because of his broken collarbone. Woodson was expected to return to the starting lineup last weekend, but doctors said Woodson should sit out another week. This week Woodson has been practicing on a limited basis, but has still been ruled out. This may be a precautionary measure since the Packers are already in the playoffs, but is is still disappointing news.

Green Bay is currently 10-4 and are just half a game back of the second seed in the NFC and two games ahead of the fourth seed Washington Redskins.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Watch Cardinals' Palmer Throw Ugly Interception

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
