While the Packers' training staff has a history working with Nelson and Adams, McCarthy acknowledged the team will have to work to get a feel of the rookie Allison's situation since "we've never been through this with him".

Adams might still be able to play after testing out the ankle in warmups before the game on Sunday afternoon, even if he sits out practice on Saturday. Nelson called the broken ribs "the worst pain in his life" but still remained optimistic that he would be cleared to play which is good news for QB Aaron Rodgers who was without the services of one of his favorite targets last weekend. "If we know Sunday, we'll know Sunday".

"In the regular-season mindset, I would think none of them would play in this game", coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday.

Nelson continues to recover from the fractured ribs he suffered in the Giants game on January 8.

If there is any way, the Packers will have him in the lineup on Sunday.

Whether Nelson will play on Sunday vs. the Falcons is a question that hasn't yet been answered. "So probably maybe one or two of those guys may have to work Sunday before the game". At the time of writing, Nelson appears unlikely to play, but there's optimism for the others.

McCarthy and the Packers may not know what they have at receiver for the NFC title game until game day inactives are due 90 minutes before kickoff. "They're mentally getting ready".

We can expect to see more involvement from Randall Cobb and Trevor Davis. "That's why we're going to need the full week for couple of guys".

Safety Morgan Burnett was a limited participant in practice Friday as he got on-field work for the first time since injuring his quadricep against the Cowboys.

McCarthy also revealed that center JC Tretter had surgery on his right knee Tuesday.
