Packers WR Jordy Nelson 'way ahead of schedule,' should be ready for OTAs - [Full Article]

The news on Jordy Nelson couldn’t have been more positive for Packers fans.

“Jordy looks great,” Mike McCarthy said, adding that his reconstructive knee surgery was a success. “I’m not really worried about him getting back to where he was. He’s way ahead of schedule.”

Nelson injured his knee in the preseason last August. McCarthy said he would probably do some work in OTAs this spring, and he sees no limitations come the start of training camp in late July.

GM Ted Thompson said he’s seen Nelson around the Packers’ facility “literally all the time.” His dedication to a full recovery has been obvious.

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.
