Packers WR Jordy Nelson draws praise from teammates

ESPN - [Full Article]

Robertson Daniel had never before covered Jordy Nelson; the cornerback joined the Green Bay Packers last season on the practice squad three weeks after Nelson was lost for the season.

So Daniel, the only cornerback to cover Nelson on a deep route Monday, might not be the best judge when it comes to evaluating how Nelson looked on his first day of team (11-on-11) work since tearing the ACL in his right knee more than a year ago.

But to Daniel, who spent most of last season the practice squad, he looked good.

“It was a good route,” Daniel said after practice. “It seemed like he was moving pretty good. It was also a pretty good ball. Him and Aaron [Rodgers] have that connection.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Nelson made one other noticeable play -- a sliding catch during an 11-on-9 period -- during Monday’s hour-and-45-minute practice, the story said. The deep ball over Daniel was the one that stood out. Nelson appeared to make a one-handed catch against solid coverage along the left sideline on a well-placed ball from Rodgers.
