The Green Bay Packers may have suffered a severe blow in their hopes to beat the New York Giants on Sunday evening.

No. 1 wide receiver Jordy Nelson had to be carted to the locker room with a rib injury after he found himself on the receiving end of a violent hit by Giants cornerback Leon Hall.

The Packers officially list Nelson as questionable to return with a rib injury.

However, by the pain Nelson appeared to be in on the turf in Lambeau, it seems this injury might be more significant than the Packers would lie to admit.

Nelson put up 97 receptions for 1,257 yards and a league leading 14 touchdowns during the regular season.
