News of Jared Abbrederis’ ACL injury dampened Family Night for Packers fans who also follow the Badgers.. We saw a lot of good things…a lot of exciting things, but did not get a chance to see Jared out there catching passes and running around.
This is a setback…nothing more and as AJ Hawk hinted, Abbrederis will look back on this year with a smile after a long and illustrious career with the Packers. Of course, there is no guarantee of that but Jared has a real shot and could contribute to the longevity and success of Aaron Rodgers too. The Wisconsin Badgers have produced top quality receivers in the past and the Packers picked Abbrederis for a reason.
Here is some highlights from Abbrederis’ career as a Badger. No we won’t see him this year (I’m not rubbing that in), but these highlights remind us that Jared is a tough, sure, no-nonsense kind of guy who will do what it takes to get back and be better than ever. In the meantime, he will take mental reps to get better. No they are not as good as the real thing but they still will amount to familiarity and improvement in anticipation of the time when his knee is back to full form.
And for all those who would like to wish Jared well in his recovery, just click the button and let’s see how many well-wishes we can get for a young man who even though he is tough and all his team-mates say that he has a great attitude toward this, must be a bit discouraged that he won’t get a chance to play this year. Scroll down to wish him well:
Good luck Jared! It’s gonna take time and a lot of work but you will be back!
