McCarthy said it was a tough 24 hours waiting for the Monday MRI results. 
\"Nothing's changed. Goals are the same. Team identity is the same. That will not change,\" McCarthy said. 
McCarthy said Nelson is what you look for in a Green Bay Packers. 
He said it is a prime example of what you want in your program.
\"This is a huge week for Brett Hundley and Matt Blanchard. They'll be playing against top competition. Great evaluation for us,\" said McCarthy.
