Report: Jordy Nelson fractured at least two ribs in the Packers win over the Giants

Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs in the Green Bay Packers 38-13 wild-card win over the New York Giants on Sunday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media was the first to report the injury.

Nelson was injured in the second quarter when he took a shot to the ribs from safety Leon Hall while trying to hold onto a pass. The wide receiver eventually left the stadium on a cart and spent the night in a local hospital, before being released earlier on Monday.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Monday afternoon that Nelson won’t practice before Saturday, and if he doesn’t practice then, he won’t play in Green Bay’s divisional-round matchup with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Meanwhile, linebacker Blake Martinez and running back Ty Montgomery were each diagnosed with knee injuries, but McCarthy believes they both have an opportunity to play against the Cowboys.

Blake Martinez: “A chunk of my nose came off”

GREEN BAY – If you watched the Packers game against the Lions last Sunday, you may have noticed Packers linebacker Blake Martinez was dealing with a bloody nose.  More was revealed today during Tundra Talk segment with Martinez.

In an exclusive interview on The Zone 106.7 FM, 1670 AM in Madison, Martinez revealed that a fairly substantial chunk of his nose actually ripped off after making a tackle. The initial injury he suffered against the Vikings two weeks ago required stitches. Against the Lions, Martinez’s helmet caught on his stitches. When he pulled his helmet back, his stitches ripped open and so did a chunk of his nose. The Packers training staff did everything they could to stop the bleeding and get Martinez back in the game, eventually coming up with a “Hannibal Lecter” looking contraption.

Martinez played out most of the game with the device. He hopes the bye week helps his nose heal so he doesn’t have to deal with the constant injury much like former Badger JJ Watt does.

To hear Martinez talk about the injury hit play below.
