GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Veteran nose tackle B.J. Raji knows well the challenging path that injured Green Bay Packers teammate Jordy Nelson must take the next several months.
"Like anything else in life, you have to acknowledge it, accept it and then move forward," Raji said Thursday. "So the sooner you can acknowledge and accept it and just accept the situation, the better off you'll be."
Like Nelson, the Packers' big-play receiver who suffered a torn ACL in a game last weekend, Raji had to face a full season without football after suffering a major injury in the preseason.
