Packers training camp report: Aug. 26.On July 11 I wrote that Jordy Nelson is a Fantasy Football Stud Turned Injury Sleeper. At the time, his ADP was WR14. Since then, Nelson had a minor knee surgery which (rightfully so?) has scared people off, lowering his ADP and making him even more of a bargain.via
One day after wide receiver Jordy Nelson returned to practice following recent knee surgery, he was running like a player who didn’t seem slowed by the injury whatsoever. Working on the offensive scout team with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Nelson got past cornerback Loyce Means and safety M.D. Jennings and hauled in an 85-yard touchdown pass. “He’s a fast healer and we’re glad that he’s feeling good,” Rodgers said of Nelson. “I’m sure after today it will be a good judge of where he’s really at. We threw a lot of balls yesterday on the side and you know he had to go about 50 yards to get that deep one in the air across the field, so it was fun to see him run that one down.” If there were any remaining questions as to whether Nelson will be healthy enough to play in the Packers’ Week 1 regular season game at San Francisco, that one play answered them.
