The Packers activated three players from the active/physically unable to perform list Tuesday, but wide receiver Jordy Nelson wasn’t among them.
Two of the players activated Tuesday — tight end Jared Cook and wide receiver Ty Montgomery — can help Rodgers and the offense. Cook signed with the Packers in free agency after being released by the Rams, and Montgomery caught 15 passes as a rookie, two for touchdowns, despite being limited to six games by injury.
QB Aaron Rodgers hinted Nelson should be close, but it could still be next week before he comes off PUP. Meanwhile, Cook finally will get some camp time with Rodgers. Cook has upside if his Catch Rate and Y/R increase with Rodgers throwing him the ball. If Cook stays healthy and does play starter’s snaps, then he has a great shot at TE1 numbers.
