Here is the Packers and Cardinals' official injury report from Wednesday's practices:
Jordy Nelsonís hamstring is feeling better, but the Green Bay Packers plan to take the full week before deciding if he will be back for Sundayís game against Arizona.
Frank Zombo quickly grew tired of standing around during practice all summer.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media following practice on Wednesday. Here are some highlights from the news conference.
While Jordy Nelson was a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, the Green Bay Packers wide receiver was still absent from the portion of Wednesday's practice available to the media.
On paper, itís fun to play NFL general manager. The growing popularity of fantasy football and the thousands who wait in line for the latest edition of Madden every August can speak to that.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers remains happy to have the regular NFL officials back, even though some questionable calls have gone against the Packers lately.
The Packers have plummeted all the way to 21st in the league in offense after their lackluster 238-yard effort against Jacksonville on Sunday.
The Packers were held to a season-low 238 total yards against Jacksonville on Sunday. A big part of that sluggish effort was a run game that gained just 66 yards in 26 carries, a 2.5-yard average.
After eight games, the Packers have collected 26 sacks. Last year in 16 regular-season games, the Packers produced just 29 sacks.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy has shown a commitment to the running game the past three weeks, giving Alex Green an average of more than 20 carries per game over that span.
Surgery for Greg Jenningsí rectus abdominal tear scheduled for today in Philadelphia has been delayed while the East Coast weathers Hurricane Sandy.
Itís been more than a month since the NFL jettisoned its replacement officials, but the head-scratching calls have continued for the Green Bay Packersí defense.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media on Monday following Sunday's 24-15 win over Jacksonville. Here are some highlights from his day-after news conference:
A win is a win, but there were no extra style points awarded for the Green Bay Packersí 24-15 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Some tidbits from today's Packers-Jaguars game:
Admit it, you were thinking that when Mike Neal dropped out of last Sundayís game at St. Louis, it was the same old Mike Neal, the oft-injured third-year defensive end.
Here's the Packers inactive list:

Here is Pete Dougherty's scouting report on the Jacksonville Jaguars' special teams.
The training wheels are off for Morgan Burnett and the rest of the Green Bay Packersí young secondary.
When the opposition jumps, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers' offense makes them pay.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert appears ready to play against the Packers on Sunday despite the torn labrum in his left (non-throwing) shoulder sustained last week.
The Packers will enter their game against Jacksonville very thin at some offensive positions.
Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga had a rough game against the Seattle Seahawks, and he will be the first to admit it.
Jordy Nelsonís status for Sundayís game against Jacksonville remains uncertain after not practicing for the second consecutive day on Friday because of a hamstring injury.
The Packers will wait another week with tight end Andrew Quarless and linebacker Frank Zombo before making a decision on the two physically unable to perform players.
The Green Bay Packers will be without linebacker Nick Perry (knee), cornerback Sam Shields (ankle) and fullback John Kuhn (hamstring) for this Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
As Mike McCarthy forecasted, Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson did not participate in the portion of practice available to the media on Friday.
The Packers havenít had a major issue with a snap on a field goal, extra point or punt in the five years that Brett Goode has been their long snapper.
The Green Bay Packers have reportedly taken the final step in locking up all three of their specialists for the foreseeable future.
The mystery surrounding Greg Jenningsí persistent groin injury finally has been solved.
The Packers still have an opening on their 53-man roster and could be saving it for one of their two PUP players who started practicing last week.
Here's the Packers' official injury report today:
Greg Jennings will undergo surgery to repair an abdominal tear on Tuesday and likely is looking at a three- to six-week recovery.
Coach Mike McCarthy said on his weekly radio spot with Sirius XM radio that receiver Greg Jennings might need surgery.
Defensive lineman B.J. Raji returned to practice today and looks like he has a decent chance to return this week after missing the past two games because of an ankle injury.
The Packers return home for the week after playing three straight road games and had their first practice Wednesday in preparation for facing the Jacksonville Jaguars at Lambeau Field. Following are the Press-Gazette's story from the day.
The tires are back on, silly string removed and windows cleaned to perfection.
Here's today's official injury report:
During a week in which the Packers are preparing for an uncommon opponent, the Jacksonville Jaguars, coach Mike McCarthy had to cut practice short today because of the long list of injured players.
Greg Jenningsí groin injury hasnít healed much ó if at all ó so the Packers receiver is seeking a second medical opinion.
Here's the full injury report followed by live comments from coach Mike McCarthy:
Add fullback John Kuhn and receiver Donald Driver to what has now become a fairly lengthy list of players not practicing for the Packers.
The Packers continued to remake their practice squad today.
The shuffling continues for the Green Bay Packers' practice squad.
As Pete Dougherty points out in this analysis -- http://pck.rs/ShjXyS -- the loss of Charles Woodson a couple of years ago probably would have been devastating for the Packers' defense.
Some tidbits from Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on his weekly ESPN Milwaukee radio show Tuesday (http://tinyurl.com/ybagppm):
In addition to releasing defensive end Drew Vanderlin from the practice squad, as our Wes Hodkiewicz reported earlier today (http://pck.rs/QTMEhN), the Packers made two other practice-squad moves.
The Packers rank No. 1 in the NFL in red-zone offense, converting touchdowns on 76.19% of their trips inside the 20-yard line.
Green Bay native Drew Vanderlin's stay with the Packers lasted only a week.
The Packers (4-3) have risen to between No. 5 and No. 7 in the latest round of NFL power rankings, based on a sampling of four different media outlets.
Mason Crosby badly missed a 58-yard field goal attempt against the Rams on Sunday, just like he was way off the mark on a 51-yard field goal attempt against the Colts two weeks ago that would have sent the game into overtime
The good news for the Packers is that they have climbed all the way up to the No. 6 seed in the NFC. That means if the playoffs started today, the Packers would claim the final playoff berth with their 4-3 record.
The Packers will be without the services of defensive back Charles Woodson, who broke the left clavicle in his collar bone against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
Greg Jennings might not be on the field right now, but that doesnít mean the Green Bay Packersí wide receiver has lost his sense of humor off of it.
Charles Woodson has broken the same collarbone as he did in Super Bowl, but it's not as significant a break, coach Mike McCarthy said Monday.
In the eyes of his coaches, Brad Jones passed his first test at inside linebacker on Sunday.
It's official. The Green Bay Packers will be without Charles Woodson for approximately six weeks after sustaining a broken collarbone during Sunday's 30-20 win over St. Louis.
The Green Bay Packersí defense has reportedly lost its leader for at least the next six weeks.
Aaron Rodgers isnít letting his critics off the hook quite yet.
The Green Bay Packers picked up another statement victory on Sunday and they did it with help from one of their blossoming weapons on offense.
Aaron Rodgers completed 30-of-37 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns as the Packers trounced St. Louis 30-13 to improve to 4-3 this season.
Packers 17, Rams 6
After Greg Zuerlein made a 43-yard field goal to cut the Packers' lead to 10-6 with 40 seconds left in the half, the Packers drove down to the St. Louis 40-yard line before Mason Crosby shanked a 58-yarder as time expired.
Packers 10, Rams 3
The St. Louis Rams will be forced to start a third-stringer at left tackle, which could have Packers linebacker Clay Matthews licking his chops today.
The Packers placed linebacker D.J. Smith on injured reserve this week and haven't replaced him on the roster yet. That means they only needed to place six instead of seven players on today's inactive list.
If you read this morningís story on the reduced role for Donald Driver -- http://pck.rs/RLS2V7 -- you know that the Packersí all-time leading receiver is ďfrustratedĒ by it but has no plans to raise a stink.
Here is Pete Dougherty's scouting report on the Rams' special teams:

Here is Pete Dougherty's scouting report on the Rams' rushing offense based on interviews with NFL coaches and scouts:
It took six weeks, but the Green Bay Packers finally added an eighth offensive lineman to the active roster this past week with the promotion of rookie guard Greg Van Roten from the practice squad.
Donald Driver's popularity among Green Bay Packers' fans has never been higher, but there's also an inescapable truth to face in Driverís 14th NFL season.
Going into Week 2 this season, the Washington Redskinsí receivers talked about avoiding penalties for retaliating against one of the NFLís great instigators, St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan.
The Packers are finishing up the third leg of their three-week road odyssey in St. Louis on Sunday after playing in Houston last week and Indianapolis the week before.
Pete Dougherty explores the shelf life of NFL coaches. (http://tinyurl.com/8lu3kgj)
Mike McCarthy isnít the only coach sold on Alex Green as the Green Bay Packersí every-down running back.
The Green Bay Packers will be without at least four starters for this Sunday's game against St. Louis.
One week after containing Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt, the Green Bay Packersí offense line will be in for another challenge this Sunday with the St. Louis Ramsí one-two punch of defensive ends Chris Long and Robert Quinn.
The Green Bay Packers were without defensive tackle B.J. Raji, cornerback Sam Shields and linebacker Nick Perry during the portion of Friday's practice available to the media.
Six weeks into his sixth NFL season, James Jones is off to the best start of his professional career in relief of Greg Jennings, who is sidelined with a persistent groin injury.
Here are the official injury reports for the Packers and St. Louis Rams on Thursday:
The Packers will be looking for rookies such as Terrell Manning and Sean Richardson to become key special teams players now that a run of injuries is moving backups into more prominent roles on defense.
Here are the highlights from coach Mike McCarthy's press confernece after pracice Thursday:
Defensive lineman B.J. Raji (ankle) returned to practice today and appears to have at least an OK chance of playing this week at St. Louis.
The Packers on Wednesday placed inside linebacker D.J. Smith on injured reserve and began their working replacing him and injured cornerback Sam Shields for Sunday's game at St. Louis.
Here's the full injury report:
If this were a case of the local boy being given a shot with his hometown team, it wouldíve happened months ago.
Donít worry, Aaron Rodgers says the calf injury he sustained in Sundayís win at Houston isnít going to slow him down.
There were no real surprises at practice today, when cornerback Sam Shields (shin), linebacker D.J. Smith (knee), linebacker Nick Perry (knee), receiver Greg Jennings (groin) and nose tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) did not participate.
Green Bay Southwest alumnus Drew Vanderlin wasn't the only player the Green Bay Packers added to their practice squad on Wednesday.
Drew Vanderlin is getting another shot with the Green Bay Packers.
As is usually the case in the NFL, there's little time to enjoy a victory.
Aaron Rodgers had high praise for his wide receivers after throwing for a franchise-tying six touchdowns against the Houston Texans Sunday night.
When I asked offensive coordinator Tom Clements on Monday if has ever seen Aaron Rodgers play better than he did on Sunday night against the Texans, he replied: ďHeís played a lot of great games. But against a very good opponent, an undefeated team, I donít know if Iíve seen him play better. The playoff game in Atlanta was pretty special, too. He had an outstanding game.Ē
The Packers are 3-3, which seems to be a very popular record in the NFL these days.
As it turned out, it was an inconsequential play during the Packersí blowout victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Two years ago the Packers were 3-3 and ravaged by injuries that eventually swelled their injured reserve list to 15 players.
For now, the Green Bay Packers' backfield belongs to Alex Green.
The race to replace D.J. Smith is officially on for the Green Bay Packersí reserve inside linebackers.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media on Monday afternoon in the wake of the teamís 42-24 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday night. Here are some highlights from the news conference:
The Green Bay Packers' rash of injuries during Sunday night's 42-24 win over the Houston Texans collected its first causality on Monday.
Itís easy to get carried away with the Green Bay Packers 42-24 win over the previously undefeated Houston Texans on Sunday night.
Aaron Rodgers heard the criticism after the Green Bay Packers relinquished an 18-point halftime lead during last weekís loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
A vintage 2011-type performance from Aaron Rodgers and his offense lifted the Green Bay Packers out of an early season hole.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media following his team's 42-24 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday night. Here are some highlights from his post-game news conference:
Packers 42, Texans 24
Packers 28, Texans 17
Packers 21, Texans 10
Packers 14, Texans 0
The Packers will have to stop Texans running back Arian Foster without the services of defensive lineman B.J. Raji, who was ruled inactive for tonight's game.
A pair of ESPN commentators today on the networkís pre-game show said Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers isnít playing up to par.

Here is Pete Dougherty's scouting report on the Houston Texans running offense based on interviews with NFL coaches and scouts:
HOUSTON -- The Packers had planned to take the decisions on whether to play injured nose tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) and tight end Jermichael Finley (shoulder) right up until inactives have to be turned in 90 minutes prior to kickoff tonight against the Texans
HOUSTON ó Frank Zombo has no trouble identifying the high point of his NFL career: starting as a rookie at outside linebacker for the Packers in Super Bowl XLV.
Two months ago, Davon House was zeroing in on the Green Bay Packersí starting cornerback spot across from Tramon Williams.
Tramon Williams is once again healthy, Charles Woodson is still flying around and Sam Shields has shown signs of his 2010 self.
Greg Van Roten was rewarded for his patience Saturday.
Itís hard enough being an NFL head coach, but the job is even more difficult when youíre leading an expansion team.
The Packers' offensive struggles this season have been well-documented. Among other things, Pete Dougherty in his latest column talks about the following as factors holding the team back:
Alex Green showed big-play speed on his 41-yard run that set up the Packersí fourth-quarter touchdown against Indianapolis last week.
The Packers will be without wide receiver Greg Jennings (groin) for the second consecutive week after ruling the wide receiver out for this Sundayís game against Houston.
Five days later, the frustration is still apparent.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media following Friday's final practice prior to Sunday's game in Houston. Here are some highlights from the news conference:
There weren't any new developments regarding the Green Bay Packers' injury situation during the portion of practice available to the media on Friday.
The minute D.J. Williams appeared to be gaining traction in his quest for more playing time, the Green Bay Packersí second-year tight end hit another snag.
Shawn Slocum doesnít use any mental exercises or techniques to help his specialists move past a major mistake.
Here's the official injury report for the Packers and Houston on Thursday:
When a player has had as many injuries as James Starks in his three seasons with the Packers, NFL coaches and scouts wonder whether he lacks the toughness to play through some pain, or whether heís just prone to suffering legitimate injuries.
Following are the highlights from coach Mike McCarthy's press conference after Packers practice today:
Backup tight end D.J. Williams, who could be the Packers' primary tight end this week against Houston if injured tight end Jermichael Finley does'n't play, was not at practice today.
The Packers began preparations Wednesday for the at least eight weeks they'll be without halfback Cedric Benson, who has a Lisfranc injury in his left foot.
Here are the complete injury reports for the Packers and Texans:
Perhaps itís one of the dangers of playing in the trenches, but ankle injuries have slowed Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji more than once.
Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is still talking about needing to improve his chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but that wonít get any easier for him this week.
Green Bay Packers rookie outside linebacker Nick Perry isnít quite sure what heís supposed to do differently, but the NFL didnít like the way he hit Colts quarterback Andrew Luck on Sunday.
Here's a running update on what Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said today after practice:
Remember when the Packers were the picture of health?
Before running back Cedric Benson sustained his foot injury on Sunday at Indianapolis, the Packers were the picture of perfect offensive balance.
Is there such a thing as a must-win NFL game in Week 6?
The Packers defense has allowed 938 total yards in its last two games, reminiscent of the 2011 season when it gave up more yards than any team in the NFL.
How bad did things get for the Packers' sputtering offense against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday? Let's count the ways.
Dennis Green didnít make any appearances in the Green Bay Packersí locker room following Sundayís 30-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
The news on the injury front wasn't good for the Packers on Monday.
The Green Bay Packers' worst fear has been realized.
For the second consecutive week, the Packers couldnít find an answer for the opposing teamís top wide-receiving threat.
Shawn Slocum has seen Mason Crosby kick enough field goals to know when heís in rhythm and when heís not.
if the Packers are going to turn things around this Sunday against the Houston Texans, they'll have to do it without their starting running back.
Our friends at Pro Football Focus continued to review game film all through the night to pull out some interesting statistics out of the Green Bay Packersí 30-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay pulled some strings to make sure head coach Chuck Pagano was able to watch Sundayís game against the Green Bay Packers from his hospital room at IU Health Simon Cancer Center.
If the Packers surrendering the game-winning touchdown to Reggie Wayne on the Coltsí final drive Sunday wasnít enough, the 33-year-old wide receiver did so despite suffering severe discomfort in the waning moments of the 30-27 upset.
