    In a post-practice interview recently, MM said that Jordy was dealing with knee issues from past seasons. If he's only out 3-4 weeks that's not too bad, but he's a speed guy so this will impact him well into the season IMO. Maybe we can finally have Finley make the switch to WR :D

    Well, at least this way he can't tear his ACL in a scrimmage.

    You have to remember that ANY surgery, no matter how minor, can come with complications. My guess is that Jordy has been fighting through the pain, but it must be at a point where it's really impacting his ability. So, may as well get it done now to be at his best for the full season rather than be slowed down during the season.

    Most players exit Week 17 or the playoffs with a list of aches and pains. Unless there is something known to be serious, most let their bodies heal through the offseason. I've played with nagging injuries for decades and won't be getting surgery unless absolutely necessary. Most pros look at it the same way....but not those of us who live-and-die on Packers success and fantasy football

    It seems from what I have read like it's something they thought they had fixed and it flared up again at the beginning of training camp.

    Why wait until it's so bad you can't bear to play and then have the surgery? Toughing it out is a primitive mindset that people need to get out of. Sure surgery can come with complications but you can incur complications and other injuries by procrastinating and continuing to play injured.

    Pro athletes have surgery all the time. I am surprised they didn't just take care of it earlier in his career. I am interested to know exactly what it is. Sounds like a very weird issue that you don't commonly see within the knee.

    I'm almost starting to just get numb from our injuries like it's just a daily thing for us.
    But you're right, I still am getting pissed off..... I want half the amount of injuries that the Niners get, and Giants get, and Seahawks, and Falcons.
    I did hear a starting OL for the Falcons also tore his ACL today..... what's wrong with that ligament? It needs to be redesigned.... using stretchable bands of some kind, let the knee bend like Gumby dammit. And stretch back.

    As long as Nelson is 100% by October then I don't mind. Later in the season is more important.
