    I was never counting to much on a WR coming back from an ACL who had been sitting for over a year for much production anyway.
    Jordy Nelson suffered the same injury and he isn’t setting the world on fire in Green Bay either. Lots of folks more knowledgeable than me say it takes a year of rehab and a season of playing to totally rehab the knee and get back to where you once were.
    After this season I believe Murphy’s contract is over. Time to move on and push that money into someone else who is more durable and productive.

    That’s a shame, but like Dr.D, I never expected much from Murphy this season anyway. The disappointment for me was Kenny Bell. Glad to see Shep earning a chance for more playing time at WR. Clearly the WR position is a bit weak. Perhaps Shorts III or Brate will do something more this week.
