Jordy Nelson was forced to exit Sunday night’s game between the Packers and Falcons with a leg injury during the first quarter.
For now, the Packers are calling it a quad injury.

Sirius XM’s Mike Clemens adds Nelson appeared to sustain the injury after taking a couple of steps and motioned to be substituted for.

It goes without saying, the loss of Nelson would be a huge blow to the Packers offense. After suffering a torn ACL during the preseason in 2015, Nelson bounced back to catch 97 passes last year for 1,257 yards and an NFL-leading 14 touchdown receptions.
