The Green Bay Packers couldn’t have reached their bye week
fast enough, as three key players sustained or aggravated injuries during
yesterday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals, including wide receiver Jordy
Nelson, linebacker Clay Matthews and offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga.
Nelson was questionable all week with a hamstring injury,
but the wide receiver managed to suit up for the Packers. However, after having
a pass thrown his way he exited the game in the first quarter. It reportedly
wasn’t his hamstring that acted up but instead his knee that caused him to
leave the game.
Matthews exited the contest late after injuring his
hamstring, while Bulaga left following a hip injury. There’s no word on the
extent of the injuries at this point, but this will certainly be something to monitor
moving forward as all three are key players for the Packers.
