If you’re looking for something to give you some hope that the Green Bay Packers offense can improve, this is probably about it. Receiver Jared Abbrederis was back at practice on Sunday.
Abbrederis has missed two games with a rib injury. That injury was suffered against Detroit, which was also the game Abbrederis recorded his first NFL catches.
In all, he had four catches for 57 yards, a promising debut for a guy who’s pretty much been injured since being drafted in the fifth round in 2014.
“We’ll see how it goes,” Abbrederis said on Sunday. “We’ll see how it progresses. I’m happy with where I’m at.”
The Packers had a very light practice on Sunday. Monday’s affair will more closely resemble the Packers’ usual padded Thursday practice, as they get ready for a Thursday night game with Detroit.
Now, let’s be serious for a moment. Is Abbrederis going to change the Packers’ offensive fortunes?
We highly doubt that, but at least they’ll have another receiver who may actually be able to hold onto the ball when it’s thrown to him or run the right route.
Well praise Jebus.
Doesn’t matter if he can hold onto the ball if they never let him play.
I don’t know if i’m buying the rib injury. If you watch the play, his helmet hit the ground really hard. I loved seeing this guy catching balls, but it just seems like he’s fragile. Hope i’m wrong.
