Packers injury updates: Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb leave early

"There was a point there when I looked at the bench and there are 10 guys on the bench [with injuries]", McCarthy said in his press briefing Monday night. "We're still working through it. He was dominant. Hopefully we'll get Mike healthy and get him back out there".

Asked whether any of the injuries were season-ending, McCarthy replied, "I don't think I'll be reporting any season-ending injuries, no". Jordy Nelson (quad) missed the rest of the game after getting hurt on the opening drive, but he was able to practice Wednesday and thus seems to be a bit ahead of Cobb at this juncture as the Packers prepare for a Week 3 game against Cincinnati. He has been the team's top receiving threat over the last several seasons, but injuries have continued to play a factor as he missed the entire 2015 campaign with a torn ACL. The defensive tackle pulled his hamstring in the first quarter and also could not return. The speedy receiver, who already has 15 receptions this season, suffered a shoulder injury during the fourth quarter. Cornerback Davon House (quad) and safety Kentrell Brice (groin) couldn't finish the game, while guard Jahri Evans (groin) played through his injury.

The Packers had multiple soft-tissue injuries during the game.

"Hopefully that's our one game for this year".

He added that heavy rain is expected until Saturday, and called the storm "the most unsafe storm in Puerto Rico's modern history". Life-threatening flooding will remain and issue, as well as tropical storm conditions as Maria moves out of Puerto Rico.

Without Bulaga and Bakhtiari, the Packers started second-year tackle Kyle Murphy on the left side, 1 week after he'd made his first career National Football League start on the right side.

Any extended absence could be detrimental to the Packers' passing game given his huge role as Aaron Rodgers' primary receiver.

Bakhtiari tested his injury before the game and said he likely will follow the same plan this week.

"It's going to affect the way we practice [today]", McCarthy said. "It's a decision that we thought was best for the team going into the game".
