The Packers are still waiting for number one wide out Jordy Nelson to get healthy and back on the field after missing all of last season, but until that time comes, the team is doing just fine watching the competition play out with a young wide out core.
“There’s going to be a lot of great competition,” Rodgers said. “That’s exciting as a quarterback.”
The competition has been compelling already with Nelson sidelined because of a knee injury he sustained while working out before camp started last week. Nelson called the injury to his left knee “a hiccup.”
When asked how he is progressing, Nelson responded, “Great,” as he quickly passed through the locker room before practice Wednesday night.
After Randall Cobb, who like Nelson has been entrenched as a starter the past few years, the Packers have several candidates for anywhere from three to five spots. The latter number may be a stretch, however.
“It’s fun to watch,” Rodgers said.
Davante Adams, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis are three players mentioned that Rodgers likes what they have brought to the table thus far, but it would be nice to see what they can do if and when Nelson gets back with the team.
Until then, let’s hope the WR core can continue to make strides and show what they can do as they try to earn playing time for the Packers.
