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.
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.
