Jordy Nelson believed to have torn ACL on Sunday
Really sucks when a major injury happens to a star skill player, in a meaningless game. Even worse when there was no contact on the play; just an awkward way Jordy fell that did it to him.
It's not 100% confirmed just yet, but believed that Nelson will miss the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL.
How do you think this will affect Rodgers and the rest of the offense in their chances of doing something big this year? To me, outside of Rodgers, that's the absolute worst person to have gotten hurt. He is the guy that makes that offense so dangerous. He makes you respect the throw on every play because of how talented he is at the deep route and catching with 2 feet in on a sideline route. That in turn makes the run game successful, and opens up Cobb and others down the middle.
Remove Jordy, and no doubt this offense weakens. I think they will still be good. But I have a hard time believing they will be great without him this year.
Also, for what it's worth, one less fantasy star prematurely comes off the board. Between him and Kelvin Benjamin, #1 elite receivers are becoming more and more a commodity.
