Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson left the team’s second preseason game. It appears to be a left leg injury.

He immediately went to the ground after his left leg appeared to give away. He was trying to make a turn upfield when he was injured.

He was able; however, to walk off the field, but this is a very concerning injury. Typically, when there are non-contact injuries, it almost always turns out to be a serious injury – especially a torn ACL.

Nelson was able to walk around the sideline for several minutes, before heading to the locker room. He did have off-season surgery on his hip, but we’re not sure yet if it’s his knee or his hip.

We can’t confirm if Nelson has a torn ACL, but if he does, it is going to be a serious blow to the Packers offense.

He was replaced by Jeff Janis.
