Packers expect Nelson to play; Cobb a GTD

After the Packers' Sunday night loss, numerous fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion on what they think could help the former MVP.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers can be a pretty amusing guy sometimes. If he does not return, the Green Bay Packers will likely start Kyle Murphy at left tackle and Justin McCray at right tackle once again.

Losing Cobb in the slot will force Rodgers to find other chain moving targets like the tight ends and a much better game from Martellus Bennett is needed this week.

However, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said that, barring a setback between now and Sunday, Nelson should be good to go against the Bengals. The Bengals also fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese after the poor showing out of the gate, turning the play calling over to quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor on an interim basis. Daniels left last Sunday night's loss at Atlanta during the opening defensive possession and was in street clothes shortly thereafter. Last postseason, the Packers lost in the NFC Championship to the Atlanta Falcons 44-21, with the main reason for the defeat being an inability to contain star wide receiver Julio Jones.

"I think it's important when you look at the injuries, you have to gather all the information", McCarthy said. "But it does change things when a guy like that's out of it because he can do so many things for you and we have plays in the plans specifically created to get him in a position to be No. 1 on the route concept, so you've got to adjust".

Another principal issue for the Packers entering the 2017 regular season was the offensive line. They have three field goals to show for two home games, but they have gone against two of the better defenses in the league in Baltimore and Houston. He has turned into a disruptive force up front in his sixth year, helping outside linebackers Perry and Clay Matthews get off to a good start off the edge.

Head Coach Marvin Lewis and quarterback Andy Dalton are feeling the heat over the terrible start. "I'm just trying to grow and expand it". "He has a little hip in his step", McCarthy said at his Friday news conference.
