Report: Packers remove Jordy Nelson from PUP list
The Packers have removed receiver Jordy Nelson from the physically unable to perform list, reports ESPN’s Field Yates.
Nelson, long quarterback Aaron Rodgers’s top target, missed all of last regular season for the Packers after tearing his ACL during the preseason. Off the PUP, Nelson will now be able to return to practice.
In the two seasons before his injury, Nelson put up big numbers for Green Bay. In 2013, he caught 85 passes for 1,314 yards and eight touchdowns. Nelson followed up the next year with 98 receptions for 1,519 yards and 13 scores.
Last season, without Nelson, Rodgers posted his first sub-100 passer rating since the 2008 season.
In his career, Nelson has 400 catches for 6,109 yards and 49 touchdowns.
