The Green Bay Packers announced Monday that wide receiver Jordy Nelson will miss the upcoming season after suffering a significant right knee injury during Sunday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was reported Sunday by ESPN that Nelson suffered a torn ACL, though the team did not confirm that report in their release. “I’m not trying to beat someone to be first out there," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told ESPN after Sunday's game in response to a question about the initial diagnosis. "I’m hoping for good news tomorrow. I’m in the position of listening to all of the information until we get back to Green Bay, and do all of the scans. Jordy is a key member of our team on the field and off the field. Jordy is a great player. We’re looking for good news tomorrow.” Davante Adams would likely be the team's second wide receiver behind Randall Cobb if Nelson misses time.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy would not elaborate on wide recover Jordy Nelson's knee injury after Sunday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. There have been reports that Nelson, who had to leave in the first quarter as a result of the injury, may have torn his ACL, but McCarthy said he would not comment on preliminary reports. “I’m not trying to beat someone to be first out there," McCarthy told ESPN, responding to a question about the initial diagnosis. "I’m hoping for good news tomorrow. I’m in the position of listening to all of the information until we get back to Green Bay, and do all of the scans.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson suffered a knee injury during Sunday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and it is believed that he suffered a torn ACL, according to NFL.com. Nelson will undergo an MRI to help determine the severity of the injury, but he will miss the entire season if his ACL is torn. He has been one of the elite wide receivers in the NFL over the last four years, as he has had at least 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns in three seasons over that span, including a career-high 98 catches on 151 targets for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns last year, which came after he set career-high marks in all categories the year before when he had 85 catches on 127 targets for 1,314 yards and eight touchdowns. Davante Adams would likely move into a starting role opposite Randall Cobb if Nelson has to miss the season.

Nelson (hip) was present at Wednesday's practice but did not participate in 11 on 11 work, Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Nelson, who underwent offseason hip surgery, is expected to be back in the mix within the next few weeks, but the Packers certainly won't rush him back this early in the offseason. The Kansas State product is coming off of a career season in which he hauled in 98 catches for 1,519 yard and 13 touchdowns.

Nelson, who recently underwent a procedure on his hip, is expected to be fully recovered in six-to-eight weeks, espnwisconsin.com reports.
While any offseason surgical procedure is notable when it comes to key skill players like Nelson, coach Mike McCarthy has downplayed his receiver's hip issue. "He had some postseason work done," McCarthy said of Nelson. "He'll be fine in a couple weeks. I've seen him. [I think] it's 6 to 8 weeks [recovery time], but really he should answer that. But it's nothing serious." McCarthy further noted that the issue Nelson had addressed was something that was "kind of hindering him after the Pro Bowl and something he felt he needed to get cleaned up." The wideout is coming off a career-high 98-catch season that resulted in a Packers' single-season franchise record 1,519 yards, to go along with 13 touchdowns.

Nelson had five catches for 71 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.
Nelson was a virtual non-factor last week against Dallas, making just two catches for 22 yards, but he was the Packers' leading receiver Sunday. The Kansas State product concluded the regular season with 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns, and he closes out the postseason with only seven catches for 93 yards.

Nelson caught just two passes for 22 yards in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.
Nelson's receiving output was his lowest of the season, but his quiet day did not hurt the Packers, as fellow receiver Davante Adams stepped up with 117 yards and a touchdown. Nelson's next matchup will come against the Seahawks and a secondary that allowed just 185.6 passing yards per game during the regular season.

Nelson caught 6-of-8 targets for 86 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.
Nelson had a couple of targets in the end zone, but could not convert those opportunities. Even still, he led Green Bay in all receiving categories, and ends the regular season with stellar numbers, catching 98 passes for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns. He'll be a popular option for those playing in postseason leagues, as the Packers have claimed the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the NFC.

Nelson had nine catches on nine targets for 113 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Buccaneers.
A week after he dropped a number of passes, including a clear long touchdown, Nelson bounced back in a great way, though fantasy owners had to sweat it out a bit, as his touchdown didn't come until 2:45 left in the game. The Packers clinched a playoff spot with the win, though they'll have to beat the Lions in Week 17 to win the NFC North, which should mean Nelson will get a full workload. The Lions limited him to just five catches for 59 yards back in Week 3.

Nelson had five catches on 12 targets for 55 yards Sunday against the Bills.
A pretty brutal game for Nelson, which was made even worse after he dropped a sure 94-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter that would have put the Packers ahead and extended his touchdown streak to three. Instead, Nelson finished with his second-lowest yardage game without a touchdown this season, and he'll look to Week 16 against the Bucs to break through again.
