Jordy Nelson watched play multiple times to understand what happened

Star wide receiver Jordy Nelson spoke to the media today at Lambeau Field for the first time since he suffered a season ending knee injury last Saturday.

\"I'm good. After probably the first day like I said the shock of it. I think it might have been different if I had got hit in the knee. We would've really been able to understand why it happened,\" said Nelson.

Nelson said he's watched this play multiple times to fully understand what happened and how it happened.

\"Once I've gotten over that I've seen everyone and talked to them. I'm ready to move on. I'm ready to get after it,\" Nelson said. 

Head coach Mike McCarthy said earlier in the day Nelson's season-ending injury creates opportunities for others to step up. But it doesn't change this team's focus.

\"It's a tough blow to our football team, but as we spoke in the team meeting. Nothing's changed. Our goal hasn't changed, \" said McCarthy.

Nelson told the media he needs to wait until swelling goes down in his knee before he can have surgery. He said has a full year to recover so there's no rush.

Nelson posted on his Facebook page, \"Thank you to my family, the Packers, my friends, my partners and Packers fans everywhere for your thoughts and prayers.  I appreciate your loyalty and support and am looking forward.\"
