Jordy Nelson downplayed the knee injury that sidelined him for a few plays late in the regular-season finale.
"Doc just wanted to be cautious about it, but when (Jarrett) Boykin went down, there was no choice," Nelson said of his return. "I knew I could get through it. I told them I was going back in." The knee injury didn't hinder Nelson, who drew a pass interference penalty and caught a touchdown on the same drive. He chalked the injury up to the normal bumps and bruises of a football game. Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed it was "nothing that the staff felt very serious about."
