Jordy Nelson reportedly avoids serious quad injury, '50-50' for Sunday vs. Bengals

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.

Nelson caught seven passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in a Week 1 win over the Seahawks. 

The Packers also lost slot receiver Randall Cobb late in Sunday's game. The speedy receiver, who already has 15 receptions this season, suffered a shoulder injury during the fourth quarter. 

According to NFL Network, Cobb is considered day-to-day after avoiding serious injury. He underwent an MRI Monday.

Geronimo Allison and Davante Adams would start at wide receiver for Green Bay should Cobb and Nelson miss Sunday's game.
