The Green Bay Packers roster took a hit with wide receiver Jordy Nelson having surgery on his knee. That will force Nelson to sit for the remainder of the preseason.
“Fortunately with Jordy, his particular thing that we had to go and fix is something that we have some experience with with some other guys here,” general manager Ted Thompson said, via Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “So we think we can predict about the way it’ll go, but you never know.”
“Our hope is for Jordy to be ready for the season opener at San Francisco,” McCarthy said.
What exactly was the injury to Nelson remains unknown. It must have been relatively minor to have a 4 week recovery timetable. That means the surgery had to be a relatively minor procedure like a scope or MCL repair. It is out of the ordinary for Nelson. He hasn’t had a knee injury, or problem for that matter, since 2009. He did miss time last season but it was do to hamstring and ankle issues.
