Packers receiver Jordy Nelson returns to practice

Tuesday August 12th, 2014

Packers receiver Jordy Nelson sat out Saturday's preseason game and Monday's practice with a hamstring injury, but was back in pads for Tuesday's practice, Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin reports.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel adds that Nelson worked with the first team offense, but Wilde said Nelson wasn't "doing a whole lot" during 11-on-11 drills.
