Jordy Nelson reportedly avoids serious quad injury, ’50-50′ for Sunday vs. Bengals
Limited Kids Los Angeles Kings Jersey When Jordy Nelson hobbled off the field during the first quarter of last week’s loss to the Falcons, Packers fans likely skipped a heart beat in terror.
Nelson, who missed the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL, never returned to Sunday’s game after being ruled questionable by the team.

According to ESPN.com, Packers fans can breathe a sigh of relief because Nelson was able to avoid a serious quad injury. He remains 50-50 to play this Sunday against the Bengals.
It’s still insane to me that after all of these years he’s never missed a snap, his wife, Annie Thomas, told ESPN earlier in the week. It’s just a testament to the man he is: reliable, dedicated, and mentally and physically tough.
The Browns gained 9 yards on the run by Crowell, who followed Thomas through a hole to begin Cleveland’s second series.
Thomas’ streak is awe-inspiring among his peers and believed to be the longest streak in NFL history. But the former Wisconsin tackle says he just shows up every day to do his job, which the 32-year-old has done now in 162 career games.
Earlier in the fourth quarter, Stafford lofted a deep out narrowly over Brian Poole to Tate to move the chains on third-and-4, setting up a 57-yard Matt Prater field goal that brought the Lions to within four points of the Falcons.
