Jordy Nelson is Good to Go

The Green Bay Packers should have all of their wide receivers ready for week 1. PFT confirmed that Jordy Nelson will be ready to play against San Francisco, last night.

That didn’t appear too certain at several junctures during the preseason. Nelson had knee surgery in early August and missed almost all of training camp. Initial word was that Nelson had a lingering issue with the knee, but that he could have played through it.

By scheduling the surgery when they did, the Packers all but guaranteed Nelson’s return for week 1… except for when Nelson didn’t seem too sure about that.

Well, now we can apparently all be sure.

Jordy played in only 12 games last season after his breakout 2011 campaign. He caught 49 balls for 745 yards and 7 TDs. When he played all 16 games in 2011, he caught 68 balls for 1,263 yards and 15 TDs.

So it would sure be nice if he made it through an entire season, this year.

    Question to consider…

    If, to appease the apparently angry football Gods that have been fucking with the Packers roster the last few seasons, what offensive and defensive starter (one each) would you offer up as a sacrifice if it meant that the other 20 would remain injury free for the rest of the season?

    I’d go with Starks (assuming he gets the nod) since he’s missed most of the games anyway and Brad Jones since there seems to be several backups just waiting to jump in there.

    Your thoughts?

    Nelson and Jones on each side, Cobb and Finley in the slots. The 49ers are gonna have their hands full.

    If they don’t get to A-Rodge early and often, the Pack will score 30+. Easy.
