The Packers made one of the more interesting draft selections of the fifth round this year when they selected Wisconsin receiver Jared Abbrederis, largely considered one of the best route runners of anybody in the draft.

And though he had impressed in offseason workouts thus far, he hurt his knee in practice Thursday, and the Packers feared he had torn his ACL.

Unfortunately for Abbrederis, they were right. As he confirmed on Twitter on Saturday.

Still, it sounds like Abbrederis is trying to stay positive.
