Now we know why the Green Bay Packers started training camp with receiver Jordy Nelson on the physically unable to perform list. He has another knee injury.
That’s certainly bad news, but if there’s any good news, it doesn’t sound serious.
Jordy Nelson said he's on PUP because he tweaked his other knee while working out. "It's not the ACL. No one needs to freak out."

Nelson, of course, missed all of the 2015 season after tearing his ACL in the preseason. He was expected to be ready to go when training camp opened.
No one has talked about a timetable for Nelson’s return yet, but coach Mike McCarthy suggested he wouldn’t be out long.
Mike McCarthy said he is "not concerned" that Jordy will open on PUP. Doctor told him no "longterm concerns" w/ 6 players on PUP. #packers

Just sit Jordy Nelson out and bring him back for the Jags game. During the Jags game, let him play limited game time.
Where’s Draymond Green at? Good thing he’s not trolling us anymore.
SHHHH! just don’t bring his ass up. All that kid wants is attention.
That is the problem with major injuries. During rehab players can start putting other joints, muscles and ligaments under additional pressure by compensating for the injured body part. How many times when a player comes back from a major injury do we here about other joints, ligaments or muscles that have problems.
If it is the true Draymond he is probably in exhibition games practicing kicking someone in the nuts to show his good sportsmanship in the Olympic Games. ;)
If that diffusional, narcissistic, whiny repetitive bitch is the real “Draymond Green” than I am most definitely about to spark this blunt with my man 2-Pac while Elvis puts another round of dogs on the grill.
Greg Jennings never had a serious injury and just retired at 32 years of age. Antonio Freeman never had a serious injury and retired at 31. Javon Walker tore his ACL, never returned to his old form and retired at 31. Robert Brooks tore his ACL, never returned to his old form, and retired at 30.
Jordy Nelson is 31 and the Packers have based their whole turn around on his recovery.
ummm…not so much. They drafted Trevor Davis. They….gasp…..brought in a free agent TE in Jared Cook. Plus they get Ty Montgomery back (at some point anyway). ACL’s are a pretty common injury now.
Davis was a 5th round pick, a developmental player, not a replacement for Jordy Nelson. Davis wasn’t even the best receiver on his college team.
Montgomery is still out, no word on him yet. He could be cut in a few weeks.
ACLs can be fixed but not so much when the player is 31.
Actually, Javon Walker had a good season the year after his ACL injury, then he got hurt again and that along with his attitude pretty much ended his career.
Walker had one good season with Denver after his torn ACL, but not a GREAT season like he had with the Packers. He was also only 27 when he tore his ACL.
Truly surprised that they didn’t give Boldin a look. Seeing him sign with Detroit gives them a darn good trip of receivers. Would have been an upgrade over Adams, even if only for one season. Then again, I can see why they wouldn’t sign Boldin because they still believe in Adams. Why do I even care tho. I’m a Pats fan.
Jordy described the injury as a hiccup. Not sure you get put on the PUP list for a hiccup, but ok. Hard to figure out Montgomery’s hold-up. Not sure what kind of foot surgery that Cook needed. Not sure i have much faith in any medical statement that comes out of the Green Bay Packers. The only thing i’m sure of, as far as Packer injury’s go, they either don’t tell us because of “gamemanship”, or because they are afraid they’ve misdiagnosed an injury, as that has happened in the past. Or that they speak to us with that fucking arrogance of we don’t need to know anything. Funny thing is, when they need to raise revenue and sell stock, they seem pretty happy collecting the 90 -100 million dollars that Packer fans have given them, for a piece of paper.
In related news, watching McCarthys last 2 pressers, can this fuck ever break a smile? I’m tired of this dude’s arrogance and coldness. Seriously, lighten the fuck up and get off your high horse.
In other news, don’t miss the Packers American Family Insurance commercial…oops. I meant…. It was nice to view the video of Mark Murphy’s ribbon cutting of “Dream Drive” and who know’s, maybe next year he’ll figure out how to hold the scissors correctly so it actually cuts the ribbon. Nice job Mark.
If you’re so butthurt about it you don’t have to give them any money, it’s that easy. Talk about arrogance then you believe the fans are entitled to information thath NO ONE outside of the organization gets, OK.
You’re right Wolf….”Gamesmanship”.
Listening to the radio at various times yesterday was tough. PUP isn’t injured reserve. I think people are overreacting. One of the local shows had a sports therapist on, and she was thinking that he may have some tendinitis going on in the opposite knee. Hardly the death sentence everyone has been predicting.
