The Green Bay Packers non-parade celebration on Tuesday was a day for the fans to enjoy the Super Bowl XLV victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fans came in, paying $5 apiece, and watched as various players and Packers front office members speak.
They also saw WR Jordy Nelson on crutches.
One surprise from the event was the sight of WR Jordy Nelson on crutches. While they had been dealing with many injuries this season, they had been relatively healthy over the past few weeks. That certainly played a part in their six game winning streak to end the season. But with Nelson, WR Donald Driver, CB Charles Woodson, and CB Sam Shields also suffering injuries during the Super Bowl, it's a good thing the season's over.
Not a big deal, no, considering we're seven months from the season but interesting nonetheless for Packers fans. I saw Nelson after the game and didn't notice a limp or any sort of injury. Nelson ditched the crutches later in the celebration so it's a minor injury and certainly not a big enough injury to ruin the joy Packers fans were feeling at Lambeau Field on Tuesday.
