Green Bay - The Green Bay Packers' bad luck with injuries stuck a local favorite. Wautoma's Jared Abbrederis is in danger of missing his rookie season with a knee injury.The team fears it's a torn ACL in his right knee, according to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The 5th-round pick was just a spectator at practice Friday after suffering the injury sometime Thursday. He did finish practice Thursday, which is why it was surprising to see him observing Friday. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he had not met with the medical staff before meeting with the media Friday morning and would only say Abbrederis had a knee injury. According to McGinn's report, the team's initial diagnosis was an ACL injury but they're awaiting further tests. If confirmed, it would be a loss as Abbrederis looked very good once the pads went on Monday. "He's done very well. He did well in the spring. He runs very good routes. He catches the ball well. He's a smart receiver. He's had his moments where he's done a lot of great things," offensive coordinator Tom Clements said. It's very unfortunate for Abbrederis, who certainly fit Aaron Rodgers's criteria for getting on the field.Wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett said, "When he steps out on the field, he makes the most of his opportunities. Those are the things we look for in our young guys, and we have to continue to do that on a daily basis so ya know we'll see what happens. But as of right now we just gotta continue to improve on a daily basis in our fundamentals." How do coaches look to the young wide receivers to stand out? "Number one, they have to know what to do," Clements said. "There's a certain technique, and they have to do it that way, and if they have an opportunity to make a play you want them to make plays. A receiver can go a game and maybe have only 3 or 4 opportunities to make a play in the passing game, and they have to capitalize on those opportunities. If they have a blocking assignment you have to see them get to their assignment and execute it and get the job done. You're looking for them to be productive in whatever they do."
