Jordy Nelson, wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, is known for injuries and for being one of the top players in the nation. The last time he got injured it was his hamstring and he missed four weeks of the regular season. Nelson has been bothered by his knee injuries since his college days playing for Kansas State back in the year 2003. Nelson was drafted to the Packers in 2008. During the 2009 season, Nelson was getting action while being the kick returner for most of the year. This year he was the starting wide receiver until he got injured in his right knee.

He was the top receiver of the Super Bowl XLV while playing for the Pittsburg Steelers. Nelson’s strength grew each year with the Packers while earning more and more and while playing better and better each season. This last year Nelson had one of his best seasons. He set personal records for touchdowns and receptions and, until his injury, he was looking at another great season.

Randall Cobb, who is another great wide receiver for the Packers, did not participate in their last practice because of bicep injury. Without Cobb and Nelson, the Packer offense will turn from one of the best in the league to one of the worst. Speaking of injuries, ESPN announced that doctors are planning to have surgery on Nelson’s knee. Doctors have done other surgeries on Nelson’s knee before, but they have not been effective.

When you first think of Jordy Nelson, you think of the amazing season that he just had. Now when you think of him you think of his soul crushing injury he had in his game against the Steelers. Last season, he went the pro bowl, because of his amazing stats that consisted of 13 touchdowns, 94.9 receptions, and 1519 total season yards. Part of Nelson’s great season is that he works well with one of the world’s best quarterbacks of all time, Aron Rodgers. It’s going to be a rough season for the Packers without Nelson.
