Anyone who knows football knows that a ACL injury is a big deal. It takes a special kind of person to try and come back from this injury. Watching some of the games in the beginning of the season you can tell that Jordy was still not 100%. He missed the whole 2015-2016 season causing for the chemistry issues between Jordy and Rodgers. Jordy had one of the best seasons in his career and was coming off a terrible injury. The last person to come back from an ACL Injury and have a season like Jordy was Jeremy Maclin who suffered a ACL tear in the preseason of 2013 Maclin had the best season of his career the season after his injury.
Jordy Nelson was 3 receptions shy of being the 5th player EVER in NFL history to have 100 receptions, 1200 receiving yards, and 13 touchdowns in a single season. He would join Randy Moss, Cris Carter, Marvin Harrison, and Jerry Rice. Aaron and Jordy have always had great chemistry together. No one in the league can compete with their 58 touchdown connections. I’m not saying that Aaron and Jordy are on Joe Montana and Jerry Rice’s level but they are one of the league’s best QB-WR combo. Although the Pro Bowl is an entertaining event, everyone knows that no one wants to get injured in the game. So as a fan, you can’t be mad that he won’t be participating and can now recover from his injury. Jordy Nelson has many more pro bowl’s in his future.
