Aaron Rodgers saw his top receiver sidelined for almost all of Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson suffered a quad injury on the team's opening scoring drive against Atlanta and did not return as the Falcons rolled to a 34-23 win.

Nelson had zero targets at the time of his exit.

The 10-year veteran was Rodgers' top target in last week's win over the Seattle Seahawks, reeling in seven catches on eight targets for 79 yards and the game-sealing touchdown.

The Pack also lost Randall Cobb to a shoulder injury in the fourth quarter.
