Packers Receivers Are Hurting a Bit

It's not as bad as the one time several years ago when the Packers had to start Terry Mickens as their number one receiver, but the Packers receiving corps is still hurting pretty bad. With Jordy Nelson already still out a couple of more weeks, the Packers were forced to but Brett Swain on the injured reserve on Tuesday. These two injuries are in addition to the injury Jermichael Finely suffered against the Browns, one which makes him a "long shot" for the game against Minnesota this weekend.

I'd really like for the Packers to have all their weapons on Sunday, but I don't imagine Finley playing at all. This article says it might be likely, but I have him in fantasy so that all but eliminates him from playing. Expect Donald Lee to play a big part in the offense, and we'll also probably see a bit of newly signed practice squad perennial Jake Allen.

Packers take on the Vikings this Sunday at 3:15pm, if you haven't heard.
