This is a bit surprising since he was reportedly moving well along the sideline. We would recommend waiting until the MRI confirmation before cutting Nelson loose as it's still pretty early in the process. This is a big blow to the Packers offense, but the team does have some depth at the position. If Davante Adams is available on the waiver wire, pick him up immediately, as he suddenly becomes a fantasy WR2. Jeff Janis and rookie Ty Montgomery will compete for snaps as the team's WR3.
