Le'Veon Bell 'Had No Burst' After Suffering Groin Injury

Jan 23, 2017 8:11 AM

Le'Veon Bell left Sunday's AFC Championship Game in the first half with a groin injury and didn't return.

Bell revealed after the game that he played through the injury for weeks, but it flared up against the New England Patriots.

"I had no burst anymore," Bell said.

After breaking franchise records for single-game rushing performances in the regular season and the playoffs, Bell's season ended with a quiet 20 yards on six carries.

"I felt like I was holding the team back," Bell said after the game. "It's real disappointing. We work so hard to get here. I felt like I had done a lot to help us get here. To not play and not go to battle with my teammates, it hurt."

Andrew Luck Undergoes Shoulder Surgery

Jan 19, 2017 11:08 AM

Andrew Luck has undergone shoulder surgery, team owner Jim Irsay announced in a tweet Thursday morning.

The recovery period reportedly won't interfere with Luck's 2017 season.

During the Colts' trip to London this season, Irsay said Luck did not have major problems with his right shoulder, which was initially injured in 2015, and would not need surgery.

After missing two games in 2015 with a shoulder injury, Luck aggravated the injury while trying to make a tackle after throwing an interception against the Denver Broncos in Week 2 this season.

Davante Adams' Status In Question Because Of Ankle Injury

Jan 19, 2017 6:57 AM

The Green Bay Packers don't know if they'll have Davante Adams for Sunday's NFC Championship Game after he injured his left ankle in the fourth quarter last weekend.

Mike McCarthy said Adams will be held out of practice for most of the week and instead will work with the group of players rehabbing injuries.

"I'm curious to see him move," McCarthy said. "I don't think he'll practice till Saturday."

Adams had five catches for 76 yards against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Packers were without Jordy Nelson in the divisional round due to a rib injury.

Aaron Rodgers Hoping Jordy Nelson Can Return If Packers Win

Jan 12, 2017 8:01 AM

Jordy Nelson hasn't officially been ruled out for Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys, but Aaron Rodgers hinted on Wednesday that the Green Bay Packers would have to win to give Nelson a chance to get back on the field.

Nelson, who sustained a significant rib injury in last Sunday's wild-card win over the New York Giants, did not practice on Wednesday.

"It's tough," Rodgers said. "We've played a lot of football together. You realize how important these opportunities are, how they don't come around every single year. We feel great about our team. Obviously, we feel better with 87 in the lineup. He's a classy guy and a great teammate. I was with him last night and the night before. He's staying positive and he's hopeful.

"We're going to try to get this one and hopefully get him back if he can't play this week."

Nelson led the Packers with 97 catches, 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns during the regular season.

Jordy Nelson Suffers Two Broken Ribs, Doubtful For Cowboys' Game

Jan 9, 2017 8:32 PM

Jordy Nelson suffered two broken ribs in the Green Bay Packers' win over the New York Giants.

Nelson spent the night in the hospital.

"If he doesn't practice Saturday, then he won't play in the game," McCarthy said of Sunday's NFC divisional playoff matchup with the top-seeded Dallas Cowboys.

Leon Hall broke Nelson’s ribs when he lowered the crown of his helmet into Nelson’s body while Nelson was reaching up to try to catch a pass. Although Hall wasn’t flagged, he’s likely to be fined by the NFL.
