Packers-49ers II: Thursday injuries
By Kevin Seifert
The Green Bay Packers appear to have answered their biggest injury question of the divisional playoff round.
Their top four wide receivers participated in at least a portion of their final practice of the week Thursday, suggesting they will all be available for Saturday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Jordy Nelson (ankle) and Randall Cobb (flu) were limited Thursday, but coach Mike McCarthy suggested that both should be ready by the weekend.
Formal injury designations won't be released until Friday, which sets up a possibility of the kind of curveball we got last week from the Minnesota Vikings. But for now, it appears that receiver Jarrett Boykin (ankle) is the only Packers player at risk of missing the game.
The 49ers practice later Thursday. We'll update you with any surprises there.
