Knee Injury Ends Season For Jerel Worthy

+Read full article

Jeff Hanisch- US PRESSWIRE

 

This offseason the Green Bay Packers focused solely on the defense during the draft. In the second-round, Green Bay drafted defensive tackle Jerel Worthy who has been a solid edition for the Packers this season and has been a part of the team’s turnaround on the defensive side of the ball.

Worthy sustained the injury during last week’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings and his presence up front will be greatly missed by the Packers. He started four games this season and will end up with 2.5 sacks this season along with 14 tackles. Worthy ‘s combination of strength and speed helped give the Packers a great push up the middle and was a key reason for the Packers stopping the run. He will be missed this weekend as Green Bay needs all the help they can get stopping Adrian Peterson.

Worthy was disappointed hearing the news, but his hopes remain high as he still thinks the Packers can win the Super Bowl without him and is confident he will return to the team even stronger next season.

“Thanks Packer fans for all your thoughts and prayers. I will bounce back from this and be better then ever! Go Pack Go!” Tweeted Worthy.

This news comes out on the same day that veteran cornerback Charles Woodson will be coming back for the Packers after missing the last two months with a collarbone injury. Green Bay has been banged up for the entire season and seem to have one more injured player every time they get one back. Luckily for the Packers though, they should be able to manage their defense without Worthy since he played on a limited basis.

The Packers play this Saturday against the Vikingsfor the third time this season. The two teams split the season series each of whom winning at home, which the Vikings did last weekend. Worthy will still travel with the team and watch the game from the sidelines.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Watch Cardinals' Palmer Throw Ugly Interception

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.
