Glover Quin: “God meant for Jordy to get hurt”

In case you have not heard, Green Bay Packers star receiver Jordy Nelson will likely miss the entire 2015 season after suffering a knee injury in a preseason game.

On Monday, during a news conference before practice, Detroit Lions safety Glover Quin gave his thoughts on the Nelson injury and his word choice was interesting.

“I hated Jordy got hurt, but in my beliefs, and the way I believe, it was — God meant for Jordy to get hurt,” said Quin. “So if he wouldn’t have got hurt today, if he wouldn’t have played in that game, if he wouldn’t have practiced anymore, and the next time he walked on the field would have been opening day, I feel like he would have got hurt opening day.”

Even though it looks like Nelson will be out for the year, Quin thinks the Packers still have plenty of time to figure out a backup plan.

“So in that sense, now they’ve got three weeks to make adjustments and prepare before opening day, as opposed to it happening opening day and now you’re in the season and now Jordy gets hurt. It happening in the preseason, you hate that it happened, but that gives them time to make adjustments and try to find something.” Quin Said.

Quin seems like a pretty good guy and I’m confident there was no ill intent here, but the Lions safety probably could have chosen better words to describe his feelings regarding Nelson’s injury.
