Bryan Bulaga yesterday. Jordy Nelson today. They wouldn’t be the Green Bay Packers if guys weren’t dropping like flies.
Coach Mike McCarthy says Nelson will miss the rest of training camp after having knee surgery. Adam Schefter says the injury is a nerve issue that’s bothered Nelson since college. It flared up at the beginning of camp.
The Packers hope Nelson will be able to return for the season opener against San Francisco, but you know how those things tend to go around 1265.

Randall Cobb also left practice today with a biceps injury. Cobb was seen on the sideline icing himself. No word on how serious that injury is yet.
At the moment, the Packers receiving corp is James Jones, Jarrett Boykin, Jeremy Ross and a bunch of guys you’ve never heard of. At least until Cobb and Nelson get back on the field.
While it would be great if Nelson returned for the season opener, he’ll still have to work off some rust when he does get back. So don’t expect him to be terribly effective in week one if he is indeed healthy.
