As Green Bay Packers' receiver Jordy Nelson nurses a rib injury, some of his youngest fans are doing what they can to encourage the star player to get well.
Students at Rib Lake Elementary School removed the "Rib" from their school name and now refer to themselves as simply "Lake Elementary."
The idea came from Mark Krommenacker, the school's Phy. Ed. Teacher.
"Well let's try to think of something creative, we know we have rib in front of our name so we said we'd give it up for a little bit and be Lake Elementary for a little while, if it helps him to get healthy," Krommenacker said. "I know it might be a long shot but anything we can do to help."
The kids say they are happy to let Nelson have their rib --- as long as he gives it back.
