Packers rookie WR Jared Abbrederis confirms ACL tear
The Packers feared Jared Abbrederis had torn his ACL. The Packers were right.
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.
I know there has been a lot of talk going around about my injury. The acl injury was confirmed this morning and is only a small setback.— Jared Abbrederis (@abbrecadabra) August 2, 2014
Still, it sounds like Abbrederis is trying to stay positive.
It will only make me stronger, and I cannot wait to get back on the field with my team! I truly appreciate all the love and support!— Jared Abbrederis (@abbrecadabra) August 2, 2014
