Packers struggled to overcome Jordy Nelson's injury

If ever a team seemed prepared to handle a devastating injury at a critical position, it was the 2015 Packers. Certainly, everyone in the organization cringed when Jordy Nelson tore his right ACL in August. But Ted Thompson had invested heavily in the wideout position.

Packers 2015 acquisitions: Something old, something new at wide receiver

In 2015, Green Bay signed veteran James Jones in free agency and added Stanford's Ty Montgomery through the draft. Over the next two weeks, Acme Packing Company takes a look at each position group on the Green Bay Packers and provides grades and insight on how they performed in the 2015 season.

Cheese Curds, 1/28: Packers young receivers need to blossom (and stay healthy) in 2016

After a final game that offered promise for the future, Green Bay's wide receiver unit will look to make a complete 180 from their 2015 performance. One of the most universally disappointing position groups on the 2015 Green Bay Packers roster was the wide receiver corps.

Cheese Curds, 1/20: Packers excited for Jordy Nelson to rejoin young receiving corps

Over the weekend, the young receivers finally did some of the little things that Green Bay expects from its wideouts, but they'll be happy to have their veteran star back and healthy next season. As the old guy in the room, Jordy Nelson brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Green Bay Packers' wide receiver group, which is by and large a very young bunch.

Davante Adams Injury: Packers receiver is reportedly likely to miss Cardinals playoff game

The ' receiver corps is expected to be even more shorthanded on Saturday. The Green Bay Packers have dealt with numerous injuries to their receivers throughout the 2015 season. First it was Jordy Nelson's torn ACL, then Randall Cobb sprained the AC joint in his shoulder, and then Davante Adams sprained an ankle early in the season. Though both Cobb and Adams played through their injuries, rookie Ty Montgomery went down just before the Packers' bye week, and was eventually placed on injured reserve. Now, it seems that one of the remaining starters is going to be shut down for at least the...
