Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson said he would be surprised if Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden does not shadow him during the team's Week 7 game. Nelson said he does not believe he will be double covered during the game.
Huddle Up: With Randall Cobb out and James Jones likely to miss Sunday's game as well, Haden will shadow Nelson while the rest of the Browns' defense tries to take away Aaron Rodgers' other options. Still, expect Nelson to be targeted heavily against Cleveland even with one of the NFL's top corners covering him.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) returned to practice Monday, Sept. 2, and a league source said Tuesday, Sept. 3, that Nelson will be available for the Week 1 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Nelson, who missed all of the preseason, is trying to rebound after missing 4 games and seeing his stats drop across the board a season ago. If he's close to 100 percent, he makes Aaron Rodgers, one of fantasy's top QBs, that much more potent.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is getting close to returning from his knee surgery.
Huddle Up: That was fast. It looks like Nelson is on track to play in Week 1. If cleaning up his knee has freed him from the nagging injury issues, he is going to be a tremendous value.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson shed some doubt in recent comments about being available for Week 1. "Our main goal is San Fran," Nelson said. "And that's just a goal. You never know what could happen. We'll just continue to go day by day."
Huddle Up: Every day Nelson sits his fantasy value takes a hit in a powerful yet crowded offense. And as Nelson's value slips, that of healthy Packer pass-catchers like Jermichael Finley and James Jones creep upwards.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) has been able to start running as part of his rehab from minor knee surgery and is on schedule according to doctors. He said he wants to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Sounds good as there's a little less than 3 weeks remaining until the opener. Keep abreast, though, for further progress reports.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) underwent surgery on his knee Monday, Aug. 5, that is expected to keep him out for four to six weeks, but doctors still expect him to be ready for Week 1. Doctors tried to fix a nerve issue in his knee that has bothered him since college.
Huddle Up: The injury woes continue for Nelson. If this was an issue he's had since college, it's a bit odd they tried to fix it in the middle of training camp instead of, say, two months ago. They will try to have Nelson back by Week 1 but he could have a slow start as a result of this. Randall Cobb and James Jones get bumps in value.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) was taking part in practice Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Nelson, who has been in and out of the lineup for the entire second half of the season, missed practice Tuesday and Wednesday but should be able to give it a go Saturday night. How long he plays and how effective he is, however, are the 2 key questions.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ankle, knee) entered the NFC Wild Card game against the Minnesota Vikings Saturday, Jan. 5, with a knee injury, and he appeared to roll his right ankle before hitting his knee on the turf in the fourth quarter. He limped off the field, but was smiling on the sidelines afterward.
Huddle Up: It's been a touch-and-go second half of the season for Nelson, who missed 5 of the Packers' final 9 regular-season games and then came up gimpy again late Saturday. Nelson finished with 3 catches for 51 yards on 6 targets in the contest, but his health will once again be under scrutiny in practice this week leading up to Saturday night's divisional-round game in San Francisco.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee, hamstring) said he has no doubt he will play in the Packers playoff game Saturday, Jan. 5. Nelson was a full participant in the team's practice Thursday.
Huddle Up: Nelson caught 3 passes for 87 yards and a TD in Week 17 -- his first action since Week 13 -- and if he plays, Aaron Rodgers should have a full complement of WRs against a banged-up Vikings' secondary.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson left in the fourth quarter of the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings due to a knee issue, but he was able to return and haul in the game-tying touchdown.
Huddle Up: Seeing his first action since Week 13, Nelson finished with 3 catches for 87 yards and the TD -- a 2-yard grab in the fourth quarter. He also had a 73-yard reception and run in the third quarter to set up another Green Bay TD.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 28, and is probable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: After practicing in full 3 straight days, Nelson is looking like a safe fantasy start this Sunday. It might be just in time for the Pack, too, with fellow WR Randall Cobb a question mark.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Nelson was a full participant for the second straight practice, and it's looking very much like the WR will see the first action Sunday since Week 13.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: The return of Nelson, who hasn't played since Week 11, would present even more options for fantasy owners who have made it to the championship round without the WR.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he is hopeful WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) will return in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Nelson hasn't played since Week 13 -- when he had a catch for 10 yards -- and a return now isn't going to do much for his fantasy owners, who, if you're still afloat, likely have been riding other options.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: One guy who won't be getting the ball in that Packers offense, again, is Jordy Nelson. He has become one of the year's biggest fantasy busts, though injuries have been the culprit. He has not done much in the second half of the season so you should be used to this by now.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Another missed practice, another step toward a third consecutive missed game for Nelson, who only has 6 catches for 126 yards and a TD since Week 7.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) was unable to participate in any portion of practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Those waiting for Nelson's return are likely going to be disappointed for a third-straight week. Even if the WR is close, the Packers no doubt will err on the side of caution and hold him out with the playoffs right around corner.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team will have a better handle on WR Jordy Nelson's (hamstring) availability for Week 16 Wednesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Nelson has missed the past 2 games, but the Packers don't seem to be missing him with Randall Cobb and James Jones having stepped up big-time. It's going to be hard to count on Nelson, even if he is active for Week 16, as a re-aggravation is only a play away.

Huddle Up: Unsurprising news out of Green Bay. Plan accordingly.

Huddle Up: With 2 missed practices in 2 days, it's looking like Nelson will miss a 2nd straight game.
