Nelson and Matthews left Sunday's 31-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals with injuries. Nelson is dealing with a sprained ankle, but Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he believes the receiver will be "fine," according to the team's official website.
Matthews has a pulled hamstring. He doesn't believe it's as serious as past issues he's had with hamstrings. Still, the Packers could opt to take a more conservative approach with their sack leader.
Things are less clear regarding right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who suffered a hip injury Sunday. McCarthy is "concerned" because Bulaga's body wasn't in a normal position when he went down. McCarthy said the Packers still are in the evaluation process.
The Packers' bye week represents a gift from the football gods.
