It turns out Jordy Nelson is more badly hurt than first thought.
Incredible effort may be putting it lightly. How a wide receiver, who takes punishment every game, can play with broken bones in his body is beyond me.
Nelson was hurt in Sunday’s 38-13 win over the New York Giants when he was crushed by cornerback Leon Hall.
Nelson didn’t return to the game, and was in obvious pain when he was carted off.
This is a huge blow for the Packers, heading into their Sunday game against the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington. Nelson is quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ favorite receiver, and Nelson led the Packers in receiving yards (almost 1,300) and touchdowns (14) during the regular season. And even with Rodgers playing at the top of his game, missing your go-to guy is a big deal.
