Jordy Nelson has knee surgery, out rest of camp

AP

Add another one to the list.

The Packers just wrapped up practice, and coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that wide receiver Jordy Nelson would miss the rest of training camp after having knee surgery.

He was held out of Saturday’s scrimmage, and wasn’t on the field today.

The hope is that Nelson will be able to return for the regular season opener, however.

This comes after wide receiver Randall Cobb left practice today with what McCarthy referred to as a biceps injury.

The Packers lost veterans Greg Jennings in free agency and Donald Driver to retirement. Being without Nelson will force the Packers to look at a group of young receivers, and one of them will have to step up.

  1. Good thing Mike McCarthy did all that research to keep his players healthy. It’s clearly paying off.

  2. Aaron Rodgers makes receiver a little bit better than they really are – so Jarrett Boykin, Jeremy Ross here’s your chance this preseason to show what you can do with the #1’s.

  3. I’m not sure what the Packers did to improve this offseason. Now they lose their best offensive lineman and maybe 3 of their 4 top WR’s from last year for some amount of time. In a very competitive division, it wouldn’t be shocking to see them at the bottom of the North this year.

  4. When all the injuries happened in 2010, I had a gut feeling that it wouldn’t matter because it was a hungry team that was hot at the right time.

    I don’t have that feeling right now.

    Also, do they have Doc McStuffins running the medical department? They are ALWAYS banged up beyond belief. Has there ever been a team that had 12 starters IRed in a year?

  5. just like with manning and brady, aaron rodgers makes up for deficiencies as well as anyone in the league. losing receivers for any period of time and bulaga will make things tougher on him, but it won’t spoil their season like some are predicting.

  6. thank God my fantasy draft is way late this year, guys are dropping like flies.

    Whats the O/U on packers win totals in Vegas?

  7. Sounds like this all started when Rodgers failed to pay up his debt. Karma sucks huh! PAY UP RODGERS!

  8. Sounds like the surgery was very minor to fix a nerve issue with his knee that he’s had since college. It had really flared up last season and this preseason. I guess James Jones had same procedure done in the past and Jordy should be fine.

    Cobb’s bicep injury is not serious at all. And Mike McCarthy even said Bryan Bulaga might give it a go and try to play this season. Its a strange tear in that Bryan feels 100% and can walk on it and everything. So we’ll see.

  9. Bulaga’s walking around the locker room, no limp. 2nd opinion on the way back, belief he will play on it. With the way Bahk is coming on, this is sugar on top.

  10. “Whoa, after the rain
    Washes away the tears
    And all the pain
    Only after the rain
    Can you live again”

    Jordy’s twin cousins wrote these beautiful lyrics.

    It’ll be ok, Green Bay.

  11. Great, more excuses for the cheeseheads when their team falls to 8 or 9 wins this season, when the real problem is their offense can be completely immobilized by a certain style of defense and the secret is out amongst the NFL. it’ll be more than just the Giants and Niners that shut them down …

  12. Green Bay 8-8 no playoffs
    Seattle 12-4 and Golden Tate Super bowl MVP with a winning Touchdown C A T C H with 1 second left in regulation

  13. no chance bulaga plays on a torn ACL. puts tremendous stress on other ligaments – no way he makes it through a full season like that.

  14. These comments crazy.

    This is like an AoL chatroom from 20 years ago. What have you created Florio?

  15. Guessing Cobb and Nelson play wk1. Whether they play all 16 games is at least as questionable as whether Greg Jennings will. As for Bulaga, if hes playing wk1 he wont be playing by wk4

  16. If he has any room left on them, I’m sure Rodgers will use these injuries as a chip on his shoulders.

  17. Bad Karma comes to a team with a deadbeat QB that continually refuses to pay his bets

  18. Another one bites the dust. now take out another one. The packers will be lucky to be 6-10. Rodgers is getting just what he deserve for NOT standing up for Jennings. Now they dont have a WR at all. ha ha ha ha

  19. NEXT MAN UP!!!
    So he can get knocked out too!!!!!!

    LMAO

    8-8 season on the way/

    Don’t ya wish you had Golden Tate, Dont ya!

    Aren’t you the one always wishing injury on Packer Players?

    Can’t wait til Karma pays AP’s knee a visit… it’s gonna happen…according to your logic.

  21. No team better exemplifies Next Man Up than the Packers. What would destroy another team’s season just makes our team stronger. We’ll be fine, but thanks for your concern, vik fans.

  22. If Aaron Rodgers was in Vegas, by now he would have 2 broken legs, a smashed arm, both thumbs amputated, and his lips sewn shut.

  23. They might start week 1 with some bad recievers.
    No Jennings, No Nelson, maybe No Cobb.
    J. Finley better learn how to actually catch the ball… and QUICK!

    I have visions of Jared coming in hot from Rodgers blind side, drool flying out his mouth… BOOM!!!

    Uhhh….jhein23….are you like the head trainer? No way Bulaga plays. Without lateral movement in the knee, that is what the ACL does provide, you are asking for huge trouble when a beast like Jared Allen bursts around the edge….he will have no chance. The no limp means NOTHING walkin straight…..I know, as I have had 2 ACL reconstructed knees.

    Bulaga is done for the year.

    Heard the Cobb injury is worse than expected, and he will be out weeks.

    Give T.O. or Randy a call!!!!

    duece5 says:

    If “next man up” means 51 sacks last year, I guess you are right Carl!!!!

    Prepare for 60+ and Rodgas on his back.

    Maybe Jennings can help be the…….woops, nevermind, he is a Viking!!!!!

    DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Although AR lines up behind center, I have a feeling it was Jennings who was thr true leader of this offense. He was part of it the longest, other than now retired Donald Driver.
    This new offense is LOST without Jennings! Who is number 1? Who is even healthy enough to line up as the #1? These are questions that have to have answers before thr pre-season if the Packers aren’t going to fade into futility.
    The NFC North is way to strong now, 2013 is the year the Packers become the Lions.

  27. This one shouldnt be serious. Cobb is fine too. If Nelson needs to sit out week 1, let him. Can’t have him hurt all year again. And you viking fans were the ones saying Bulaga was bad and too short to play left tackle, and now he is suddenly our best lineman? Sorry but thats Sitton. And David Bahktiari is tearing it up at camp not getting beat at all. The packers will be fine. I’d worry about your own team if I were you. You guys still dont have a qb.

    I never wish injury on any player. Sounds like you hope something happens to AP. His knee already got hit and he came back faster and stronger. Now you want it to happen again so he can come back twice and fast and twice and strong? Way to think this one through.

  29. Vikequeen fans dont worry the Packers have had multiple injuries evey season and excuses havnt came from us. In those seasons we have been at the top or near it in lost time for starters and still have been more successful than you. Matter of fact we even won a Super Bowl while leading the league in lost starters. The excuses come from you, i still read the whining from the Saints game which seems like ages ago.

  30. There is definitely something very wrong with the Packers organization to have a constantly league-leading number of injuries in training camp seemingly every year.

    What is it up to now- 18 players out after 1 week of training camp?

    Some of the injuries can be chalked up to TT’s dumpster diving draft picks, and the pressure from the coaching staff to push them into something they’re not.

    But the Packer training staff and conditioning coaches should all be fired for negligence.

  31. I know it sucks but better now then later when we really need these guys… Its not how you start but how you finish…..

    Its all about getting healthy and hot at the right time….

  32. Another report on nfl.com refers to the knee surgery as an attempt to clean up an old nerve injury that has bothered Nelson since college. Why would he wait til now to take care of a problem that he’s had since college? Reminds me of when Sydney Rice pulled the same stunt with the Vikings. Both very selfish decisions.

    No but nice try. The Cobb injury is nothing serious. Quit making crap up. Bulaga should be done for the year though. Can’t let him try to play through that.

    LOL. Of course you think that. He is a viking. You really think losing Bulaga and Jennings will make them worse? They were without both of those guys last year and were fine. You are really reaching here.

    Wow, just when I thought vik fans couldn’t get any dumber…

  36. TT is a genius. Let’s Jennings go. After already scoring 30 some points a game with Rodgers, drafts not one but two running backs in the early rounds instead of O lineman and defense. The pack will realize the error of letting veteran leadership and hands likes Jennings go when they are watching footballs bounce out of the hands of Cobb and Jones. Should make for some fine entertainment. 9-7 should get them a wild card spot.

    Not the same logic at all. Rodgers is a player and made those statements, you’re talking to a fan here. This is fun to watch, you guys are getting a taste of your own medicine. It’s ok, humble pie is good for the ego!

  41. Gotta love all these 8-8 comments, can’t wait till we win the North again and all you Queens and Bears fans go back to being irrelevant

  42. Next man up…..never break stride. There is plenty of talent in reserve on this team. Plenty of wishing and hoping by the other teams and their “fans,” but no worries here.

  43. Lacy and Franklin will have to step up. GB will need to run the football this year plain and simple.

    Earth to Rick….earth to Rick……nothing accomplished on your side of the river yet. Season hasn’t started. Packers are still defending division leaders. No games have been played. Packers have improved tremendously from last year, on offense and defense. I am and will stay very satisfied unless and until another team supplants them atop the division. Hasn’t happened in awhile, and they’ve had worse setbacks with the same dire predictions from the same wishful thinkers like you in the past. It is a sign of a very good team to do well under those circumstances. We’ll keep chasing another SuperBowl title and do whatever is needed to get there. In the meantime, you can keep chasing us.

    Just hold onto that “defending division leaders” thing as long as you can. The Packers have improved tremendously on offense and defense? Sounds like just words to me. Why are your words more powerful than mine? You want to talk about a team that faced dire predictions and did well under those circumstances? Who thought the Vikings were going to win more than six games last year? Who thought Adrian Peterson was going to be better than ever coming off his injury? You keep thinking the Packers are so special that just saying they improved makes it so, and I’ll just enjoy watching my team continue to ascend while yours continues to descend.

  47. I suppose it’s a testament to how good the Pack has been for the past two decades that any bad news for them brings the carrion eaters flocking from all directions – Chicago, New Jersey, D.C., Cheatattle and of course East Dakota. Some of these comments border on drunken deliriousness; others are just garden variety stupid. I hope I remember to get back to some of you later in the year about all that karma you’re so high on. But I’ll probably just be feeling too good to worry about those whose only joy comes from kicking injured legs.

  48. OK first you sign vy who’s next TO while your at it contact 85 as well. I see championship with that. LOL LOL LOL .!!!!

  49. If you have knee surgery you’re not going to be back ready to play in just a month, unless the packers are willing to risk him reaggravating it. It takes months to fully recover. Packers need to be smart and sit the guy longer than a month until he is 100%.

    You’re right. My words are as meaningless as yours. That’s why they play the games. I am betting the Packers can parlay their misfortunes into another division title, and perhaps more, and you think the same thing. I got wound up in the useless nastiness of the haters and I think I’m going to just sit back for awhile. It gets exhausting having to defend our fine team, state, and fans against nothing more than verbal terrorists……trying to cause discomfort at the expense of strngers just to satisfy their own anger, discontent, and yes, jealousies. Everybody likes to shoot arrows at the guy in charge. Take the title from us first, then you’ll understand that it’s harder to defend the title than it is to say why you don’t deserve it. That’s easy.

    Tell me some more fairy tales.

    Favre gets traded to NY and AR takes a 13 – 3 team all the way down to 6 – 10. Favre leads the 4 – 12 Jets team to 9 – 7.

    The following year the Favre toasted the Packers.

    Fact is, over the last 5 seasons, the Vikings have just as many division championships as the Packers (2 each) and the Bears have the other one.

    The myth of Packer domination is just that – a myth.

    There are too many intelligent fans here to allow you to forget that your Packers aren’t nearly as good as you claim.

    Some of us actually wear watching football when the Packers went 25 full regulation seasons without scoring a single TD in the playoffs. They only had 6 winning seasons during that stretch.
