Packers Calendar: Explanation on Nelson, Finley, Worthy Due Wednesday

Injury updates to Jordy Nelson, Jermichael Finley and Jerel Worthy are expected to come from coach Mike McCarthy on Wednesday.

The Packers return to practice on Wednesday in preparation for Saturday's game in the Wildcard round against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field.

Because of the atypical Saturday matchup, head coach Mike McCarthy wasn't required by the NFL to discuss injuries following Tuesday's practice. Thus, there was no explanation on the status of wide receiver Jordy Nelson and tight end Jermichael Finely who both reportedly missed practice.

During his press conference, McCarthy said he'd provide more information on the injured players on Wednesday, and that includes defensive lineman Jerel Worthy who sustained a knee injury in this past Sunday's game and could be placed on injured reserve.

Head coach Mike McCarthy will hold a press conference on Wednesday, but it will not be streamed live on the team's website. Typically, it is posted later on for on-demand viewing.

Add wide receiver Jarrett Boykin to the list of those dealing with injuries as well. The wide receiver appeared to suffer an ankle injury in the Vikings game and didn't return to action.

Packers guard Josh Sitton hosts his own namesake weekly radio program The Josh Sitton Show on Wednesday evening on 107.5 FM and 1400 AM "The Fan" WDUZ in Green Bay, which can be streamed live on the station's website at 6:00 p.m. Central time.

The show is aired live from The Pine Tree Sports Bar & Grill at Thornberry Creek in Oneida, Wis.
