A trio of Green Bay Packers wide receivers missed practice Wednesday, including Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Jarrett Boykin, according to Tom Silverstein of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Three days before they're set to play the San Francisco 49ers in a divisional playoff game at Candlestick Park, the Packers were without Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Jarrett Boykin.
The Packers entered last weekend’s Wild Card matchup against the Minnesota Vikings with their starting four wide outs, Nelson, Cobb, James Jones and Greg Jennings, healthy for the first time in a long time. However, Nelson, Cobb and Boykin all missed Wednesday’s session due to injury.
Silverstein terms Nelson’s injury a “mystery” since he briefly exited last weekend’s Wild Card game. The wide receiver has said that he didn’t aggravate his previous knee or ankle injuries, but other than that his status is generally unknown.
Cobb’s absence could be flu-related, meaning he will likely return this week and be able to suit up for the Divisional round game this weekend. Boykin tried to practice Tuesday, but he was unable to return again yesterday due to an ankle injury he sustained in the Packers’ regular season finale.
