Jordy Nelson is a ‘full go’ for season opener against Jacksonville


Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson appears set to see his first game action since January 2015 this Sunday.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday that Nelson is a “full go” for the team’s season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Pro Bowler missed all of the 2015 season after suffering a torn ACL in a preseason contest. He had been dealing with some residual knee tendinitis in his recovery this summer as well.

Nelson, 31, will return to his role as Aaron Rodgers’ No. 1 wideout and will hope to recapture his form from his last healthy season in 2014, a year in which he hauled in 98 catches for 1,519 yards (both career highs) and found the end zone 13 times.
