Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip surgery) sitting out of OTAs

ESPN - [Full Article]

Health, injuries and surgeries. They are perhaps Jordy Nelson’s least favorite topics, so you’re not going to get much out of him. But he did admit to having off-season surgery when he talked to reporters Thursday in Green Bay after organized team activities.

“Everything is going well. We’re excited where we’re at. I continue to move forward and everything is good though,” said Nelson.

There doesn’t seem to be a timetable for his return.

“Not necessarily,” said Nelson. “We’re just going to continue to progress going forward. Like I said, we’re excited where we’re at and don’t have any worries about anything that’s of importance down the road.”

Nelson said it bothered him during the season.

“Obviously, if it didn’t bother me, I probably wouldn’t have had surgery,” said Nelson. “But – nothing major. Just an opportunity to get some things cleaned up. We did it and I think it was a good move and I feel good with where we’re at, moving forward.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Anytime a player has surgery it raises red flags, but this doesn't sound too serious. Nelson has finished in the top 11 in standard formats in three of the last four seasons, averaging 5.0 catches for 81 yards and 0.72 TD in that span. The Packers' offense remains intact, so as long as he and Aaron Rodgers stay healthy, we're expecting more of the same in 2015.
