MILWAUKEE -- The countdown is on for the Packers' huge playoff matchup in Dallas Sunday against the Cowboys.

The Packers haven't won a playoff game there since 1967.

What also worries people about this next game is whether Jordy Nelson can play. The NFL Network reports Nelson has at least two broken ribs after he was hit Sunday.

The head athletic trainer for Carroll University showed us why wide receivers typically do not wear rib protection.

"There's not a lot of area for him to feel the ball against his body," said Steve Staab, Head Athletic Trainer for Carroll University.

It can also limit mobility.

Luckily for Jordy, there's lighter, less bulky versions he could wear. For now, we'll have to wait until Sunday to see what happens.
