    The Green Bay Packers will be without their top wide receiver when they take on the Dallas Cowboys, as Jordy Nelson has been ruled out.

    Packers head coach Mike McCarthy declared Nelson was out of Sunday's Divisional Round game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, according to the team's Twitter account.

    Nelson left last Sunday's 38-13 win over the New York Giants in the second quarter after taking a hit to the ribs from safety Leon Hall near the sideline.

    Nelson led the NFL with 14 touchdown receptions on the season. He also led his team in targets (152), catches (97) and receiving yards (1,257).
