WR Jordy Nelson won’t have any restrictions when the Green Bay Packers open the regular season Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
That’s what Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday, even though Nelson did not play a single snap in the preseason and hasn’t lined up for a game since he tore the ACL in his right knee 12½ months ago.
“Jordy’s full go,” McCarthy said. “And we expect him to line up and be full-bore in Jacksonville.”
Great news for owners. Perhaps only timing will be an issue now for Nelson and QB Aaron Rodgers. Nelson opened training camp on the physically unable to perform list, but not because of his right knee. He said he sustained what he called “a hiccup” with his left knee while working out before camp. Although he declined to provide specifics, it kept Nelson off the field until mid-August. He did not play, but Nelson participated in full-pad warm-ups on the field before the final three preseason games. His first full practice where he lined up in 11-on-11 drills was only one week ago.
