Green Bay Packers receiver Jared Abbrederis finally got some playing time last week. He went ahead and recorded his first four NFL receptions for 57 yards. And now he’s injured… again.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Abbrederis would miss several weeks with a rib injury, on Wednesday.
Injuries are nothing new for Abbrederis.
He missed all of his rookie season with a torn ACL. Then he missed most of training camp with a concussion.
That ultimately landed him a season-opening gig on the practice squad after he played in just one preseason game. Abbrederis was added to the active roster in early October and has played in five games, mostly on special teams.
Sunday was a coming out party, of sorts. Abbrederis flashed some of the play-making ability he showed at Wisconsin.
Hopefully, we’ll see you again sometime soon, Jerry.
