Jordy Nelson Has Torn ACL In Right Knee

Aug 24, 2015 7:51 PM

Jordy Nelson has a torn ACL in his right knee but everything else is in tact.

Nelson will miss the remainder of the season for the Green Bay Packers.

"It was determined that WR Jordy Nelson sustained a significant right knee injury in yesterday's game at Pittsburgh," the Packers said in a statement. "He will miss the remainder of the season."

 

Nelson will need reconstructive surgery but should be back for the start of the 2016 season.

Nelson appeared to land awkwardly on his left knee and not the right knee. Nelson limped off the field under his own power.

"It's difficult to lose a guy like that in a meaningless game," Aaron Rodgers said after the game.

Aug 24, 2015 12:07 AM

The Green Bay Packers fear Jordy Nelson has suffered a torn ACL.

Nelson was scheduled to have an MRI that will determine the extent of the injury.

Mike McCarthy said earlier Sunday he is "looking for good news."

"I'm not going to get into preliminary tests [and] opinions trying to beat someone to be first out there," McCarthy said after the game. "Like I said, I'm hoping and praying for good news tomorrow. That's the way I look at it based on the information I've been given."

Aaron Rodgers: I'm Back Playing The Way I Like To Play

Aug 21, 2015 5:59 PM

Aaron Rodgers feels recovered from a calf injury that slowed him down toward the end of last season.

"I'm back to playing the way I like to play, which is to extend plays when I can and get rid of it when I need to," Rodgers said Thursday, via ESPN.com.

"(If) I have an opportunity to escape the pocket and create a different angle, then I'm going to. It's nice to be back. I trained hard this offseason to keep the speed and keep my body in shape where I can have the endurance to have multiple plays like that in a game. And it definitely adds a different element to our offense."

Rodgers' mobility and accuracy makes him the NFL's most productive quarterback.

Rodgers added he has "zero inhibitions" when it comes to moving on the field.

Packers' Letroy Guion Appealing Three-Game Suspension

Jul 23, 2015 12:10 PM

Letroy Guion has been suspended for the first three games of the regular season for his offseason arrest, but the Green Bay Packers defensive tackle is planning an appeal.

Guion was notified of the three-game ban this week and his agent and lawyers immediately began preparing their appeal. 

The Packers and Guion have been bracing for a suspension ever since his February arrest for possession of marijuana and a firearm, but both sides were hoping he would be suspended for only a game or two after Guion paid a $5,000 fine in a plea deal to avoid prosecution.

The Packers re-signed Guion to a one-year, $2.75 million contract shortly after the case was settled in March.

Packers Don't Plan On Cutting Andrew Quarless

Jul 7, 2015 2:28 PM

The Green Bay Packers don't plan on cutting Andrew Quarless following his arrest for discharging a firearm in public.

According to an incident report obtained by NFL Media, officers responded to a call after two shots were fired in the 500th block of Lenox Avenue in Miami Beach, following an argument between two males and a group of women near a parking garage.

Quarless is subject to discipline under the NFL's personal conduct policy and could be put on administrative leave or the Commissioner's Exempt List.

The tight end was set to battle with Richard Rodgers for the starting gig in Green Bay.

Brett Favre Not Attempting Comeback, Believes He Can Still Play In NFL

Jul 1, 2015 5:53 PM

Brett Favre is not preparing an NFL comeback at the age of 45, but he does believe he can still play.

Favre finished his career with the Minnesota Vikings after a storied career with the Green Bay Packers and one season with the New York Jets.

"I think I could play," told Sports Illustrated for an upcoming cover story. "As far as throwing. Of course, we're not trying to start some he's-coming-out-of-retirement deal. Do I think I could play and lead a team? Look, no. But I could play. I could make all the throws I made before, I just couldn't throw it near as far, but that never matters anyway."

Rodgers: No Quarterback Calls Their Own Plays

Jun 15, 2015 1:03 PM

When Mike McCarthy delegated playcall duties to Tom Clements, some believed Aaron Rodgers should just call the plays for the Green Bay Packers.

The thinking went that Rodgers should call his own plays since Peyton Manning appears to.

"Well, Peyton doesn't do that," Rodgers recently told ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky. "Nobody does that."

Rodgers and Manning will call audibles at the line of scrimmage, but they get a play from the sidelines beforehand.

"I think everybody would want a starting point," Rodgers said. "We all have moments where we have (called the plays), whether it's a no-huddle situation or two-minute. Everybody wants a starting point. It's tough to have to call every single play, so it's always nice when you can have a good starting point and you can make a slight adjustment if you have to."

Packers Encouraged By Play Of Scott Tolzien

Jun 10, 2015 7:02 PM

The Green Bay Packers are encouraged by the play of backup quarterback Scott Tolzien in OTAs.

Tolzien nearly threaded a 24-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end Kennard Backman on third-and-10 during the two-minute drill. On fourth-and-10 with 2 seconds left on the clock, Tolzien did. He fired a pass to rookie tight end Mitchell Henry, who made a leaping grab in the end zone to lead the No. 2 offense to a drill-winning score.

"Scott Tolzien has taken a step," Mike McCarthy said after practice. "I think he's definitely done that through the OTAs. I thought he had, shoot, about three outstanding throws in the two-minute; actually, the last two plays of the two-minute were big-time throws. He's taking that step with his opportunities in the OTA practice environment."
