08:15 AM ET 10.26 | The injury bug is running through Green Bay, and it threatens to claim two of Aaron Rodgers' top targets. Even before Greg Jennings announced Thursday that he was going to have surgery on his lower abdomen, the Green Bay Packers knew he wouldn't play Sunday. They didn't know, however, that Jordy Nelson might not either. Jennings and Nelson, the Packers' top two receivers heading into this season, are part of the injury epidemic that has hit the team at this point in the season. They were two of the five starters who were not able to take part in preparations for the Jacksonville Jaguars. ... Nelson won't be able to practice the rest of this week because of a hamstring pull he suffered in practice Wednesday.

They're playing the 1-5 Jags. They could put pads on a couple of cheerleaders and beat Jax.

What? The Packers don't have cheerleaders? They're doomed.

I must admit, these arctic venues do make "northern exposure" a bit uncomfortable.

Sweet, I picked up Cobb on my fantasy team when I put Jennings on IR a couple weeks ago.

Anyone think Jordy was going to be the over rated one and Victor Cruz pick right up where he left off last year?

Like the 11 players on IR we had when we beat the Steelers in the Super Bowl 2 years ago?

They have college students as cheerleaders.
