The frenzied air attack of the Green Bay Packers was short a few men at Wednesday's practice.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reported that receivers Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Jarrett Boykin missed the session with a string of injuries.

It's not entirely clear what's bothering Nelson. He left Saturday night's wild-card win over the Minnesota Vikings early, but told the newspaper that had nothing do with the string of knee and ankle injuries he suffered this season. There's some speculation the wideout is dealing with a tweaked calf.

Cobb's setback is thought to be flu-related. That's been affecting the Packers this month, but the illness is unconfirmed.

Boykin is still dealing with an ankle injury he suffered in the Week 17 loss to the Vikings.

We'll know more when the team releases its injury report later Wednesday, but we expect Green Bay to have all its weapons ready for Saturday night's divisonal-round playoff tilt with the San Francisco 49ers.
