Nelson (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship against the Falcons.
Nelson put together two limited practice sessions prior to staying home with an illness Friday. While Nelson's status is not expected to be threatened by his illness, the condition of the wideout's broken ribs will ultimately determine whether he suits up Sunday. According to coach Mike McCarthy, Nelson will be given every chance to play, but it remains to be seen whether he'll be cleared to do. As a result, Nelson's situation will need to continue to be monitored over the weekend. Along with Nelson, fellow wideouts Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are also listed as questionable for Sunday's critical clash.

Nelson (ribs) will not practice Friday due to an illness, but the ailment is not expected to threaten his availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Falcons, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
While the illness should not be an issue come Sunday, Nelson's broken ribs still could be if they are still causing him pain come game day. However, Nelson was able to practice the last couple days, and head coach Mike McCarthy said Nelson did more Thursday than anticipated, so there is reason to believe he could return to action Sunday after sitting out last week's victory over the Cowboys.

Nelson (ribs) participated in a limited capacity at Thursday's practice.
Making progress by the day, Nelson jogged certain routes and caught passes during the part of practice open to the media Thursday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Having said that, Nelson participated without pads, implying that he has yet to receive clearance for contact, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. Considering he's less than two weeks removed from fractured ribs, Nelson is a prime candidate to sidestep potential hits until Sunday's NFC championship game in Atlanta, but fortunately he's reached the point where he can breath easy, as he mentioned Wednesday. "Right now I'm just focused on getting back to full motion and doing everything and seeing if we can get that opportunity," Nelson said. "It would be a great chance to have." Friday's injury report should impart whether he's trending in the right direction.

Nelson (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Prior to drills, head coach Mike McCarthy repeated the company line with Nelson from a week ago, stating the wide receiver would be contained to rehabilitation due to multiple rib fractures stemming from wild-card weekend. A short time later, though, Nelson was seen moving about casually and catching passes on a side field in the portion of practice open to the media, according to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The activity must have been enough to convince the training staff to allow Nelson to participate in some individual drills, hence the limited session. The preceding is more than can be said for Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring), a development that may have started Nelson down the path to active status for the NFC championship game. However, setbacks will likely have to be avoided as the Packers continue their preparations.

Nelson (ribs) won't practice Wednesday and will instead work with the rehab group, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Nelson has yet to take part in practice since breaking multiple ribs during the Packers' wild-card victory versus the Giants. Predictably, he also missed Sunday's divisional-round win at Dallas. A glimmer of hope arrived early this week, when Nelson finished Monday's regeneration workout and was deemed to have a "slim" chance to play in the NFC championship game, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. Continuing onward Wednesday with rehab work isn't exactly the best way for Nelson to kick off the week of prep, but a pair of practices remain for the veteran wideout to make his presence felt.

Nelson (ribs) has a small chance to play in Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Nelson has participated in regeneration workouts but hasn't practiced with the team since fracturing his ribs in the Packers' wild-card win over the Giants. Only missing one week would be surprising given the injury Nelson sustained, but the team claims he's made significant progress and, if he can handle the pain, he'll likely give it a go Sunday. Expect updates on his practice status later this week. Any participation would be a positive sign for the star receiver.

Nelson (ribs) was able to complete the Packers' regeneration workout Monday, but coach Mike McCarthy couldn't say whether the wideout will practice Wednesday.
Nelson missed Sunday's dramatic playoff victory over the Cowboys after sustaining multiple rib fractures in Green Bay's postseason opener against the Giants. Since then, Nelson has said he's made significant progress and is feeling better. That fact that he partook in Monday's team gathering appears to be a positive sign, but his activity level Wednesday should provide more meaningful information regarding his status for Sunday's NFC Championship.

Nelson (ribs) is making progress in his recovery, but his status for Sunday's NFC Championship against the Falcons remains uncertain, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Nelson suffered multiple rib fractures during Green Bay's opening playoff victory, preventing him from practicing ahead of Sunday win versus the Cowboys, which he watched from the sideline. Although Nelson said he's feeling a lot better to start this week, he didn't project whether he'll be involved in this Sunday's championship clash. As a result, his situation will be one to watch in the coming days, with Wednesday's initial injury report destined to provide another update on his status.

Nelson (ribs) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Nelson fractured two ribs in Sunday's wild-card win over the Giants and was a stretch to play in the divisional round. He was unable to practice on Wednesday and Thursday and will now turn his attention to next week, when he'll hope to be able to play should the Packers advance to the NFC Championship. With Nelson sidelined, Green Bay's top receiving targets are Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery, and Geronimo Allison, all of whom could see some added targets against Dallas.

We'll revisit Nelson's status Friday, but there's a decent chance that the Packers' starting wideout will emerge as a game-day call for Sunday's 4:40 ET playoff tilt on the road in Dallas.
