Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson passed his physical Wednesday and has been activated from the physically unable to perform list.
Nelson, who missed all of last season after tearing his right ACL in a preseason game, felt some discomfort in his knee while preparing for training camp and was placed on PUP. The Packers are expected to still limit Nelson’s on-field activity over the next few weeks, but his activation clears the way for Nelson to be ready to play in the Sept. 11 season opener.
Nelson insisted this new injury was minor and wouldn’t slow him for long.
The Packers offense wasn’t the same without Nelson last year, and eventually getting him back to full strength will be a big boost for Aaron Rodgers and Company.
