Packers WR Jordy Nelson 'well ahead of the curve' in ACL recovery

Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Due in part to surgical advancements and his own strong will, Packers WR Jordy Nelson appears to be well ahead of the curve in his rehabilitation. Nelson even indicated on a national radio show in January that he might have been ready to play in the Super Bowl if the Packers had qualified.

Luke Getsy, Nelson's first-year position coach, expressed no doubt whatsoever when asked in late May if Nelson would once again be an outstanding player.

Fantasy Impact: 

Nelson has had three healthy seasons in his last five, and in those years he finished #2, #11 and #2 in standard wide receiver scoring. He’s currently going in the 2nd round of early fantasy drafts. If he continues to have a healthy offseason then a return to the top 5 is a real possibility.
