Of the 10 players listed on Green Bay's injury report Wednesday, three days before its NFC divisional round playoff game at the 49ers, three were wide receivers, and a fourth was a tight end.

Still, Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters he was "pretty confident the receiver position will be healthy for the game" in San Francisco.

Jarrett Boykin sat out the Packers' wild card win over Minnesota with an ankle issue and Jordy Nelson did not finish the game while Randall Cobb missed the season finale with ankle and knee injuries. Cobb, though, was sent home sick Wednesday.

"We've got a number of guys that are fighting through (illness)," McCarthy said. "It's that time of year here, but our doctors feel confident that everybody will be ready for the game."

McCarthy said he was "hopeful" Nelson, who has also had the ongoing ankle issue, would practice Thursday.

Safety Jeron McMillian, meanwhile, was absent for the second consecutive day for personal reasons, though he was expected to be returning to Green Bay shortly.

Following, then, is the Packers' injury report for Wednesday:

Out -- DE Jerel Worthy (knee)

Did not participate -- WR Jarrett Boykin (ankle), WR Randall Cobb (illness), S Jerron McMillian (not injury related), WR Jordy Nelson (ankle).

Limited participation in practice -- LB Clay Matthews (knee), LB Dezman Moses (hamstring).

Full participation in practice -- TE Jermichael Finley (hamstring), RB Alex Green (knee), RB James Starks (knee).
