The Green Bay Packers lost one of their best players yesterday evening in Pittsburgh.
First-team All-pro wide receiver Jordy Nelson suffered what is now confirmed to be a torn ACL in the first quarter of the Packers 24-19 pre-season loss to the Steelers.
Nelson is coming off a career-best season in 2014, which saw him catch 98 receptions for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns.
The Packers will now rely on Randall Cobb and second-year wideout Davante Adams to haul-in passes from quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Green Bay also boasts some talented young rookie receivers in the form of seventh-round pick Jeff Janis and training-camp standout Ty Montgomery.
Still, the loss of Jordy Nelson is a significant blow to the Packer’s Super Bowl aspirations.
