Injured Nelson aims to get young Packers WRs up to speed

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (AP) -

Packers star receiver Jordy Nelson says he didn't think he was seriously hurt after jogging off the field on the first drive of a preseason game Sunday at Pittsburgh.
   He suspected by halftime that he might be done for the year after doctors told him he had hurt his ACL.
   Nelson spoke to reporters on Tuesday for the first time since the season-ending injury. MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers' top target is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his right knee.
   Nelson walked into the Packers locker room after practice with the aid of crutches.
   Now that the initial shock has worn off, Nelson says he's going to try to help the younger receivers on the team get up to speed as quickly as possible.
