There’s probably a good chance the Green Bay Packers will be without wideout Jordy Nelson this week, but there is only speculation circulating thus far.
The speculation is basically that Nelson blew up his insides on this hit.

That speculation started with this list of “concerns.”
Concerns for Jordy Nelson are broken ribs, pneumothorax (collapsed lung) and splenic laceration with blow occurring on his left side.

Note that he is confirming nothing. Of course, this was retweeted by Adam Schefter and then reported, apparently as fact, on Mike and Mike.
So, real good “reporting” there ESPN.
When we actually know what’s going on, we’ll let you know.
However, you would THINK Nelson at least has a cracked rib. I can tell you from having a cracked rib that it hurts to move, so I couldn’t imagine playing football with one.
