Mike McCarthy says Jordy Nelson set to return to practice

The Green Bay Packers offense was inconsistent once wide receiver Jordy Nelson went down with a knee injury during the 2015 preseason. However, after much hard work, coach Mike McCarthy said that Nelson is ready to see the field on Monday.

“He’ll go through the individual (drills) and then we’ll kind of take it from there,” McCarthy said, via Packers News.

“So first things first.”

“It’s another step in the right direction,” Nelson said Thursday night. “Another step in the plan that we have to be ready for Jacksonville. We’ll just continue to work that way.”

“That’s really something that we’ll probably need to answer down the road,” McCarthy said. “I think it’s important to stay focused on the fact that Jordy’s going to practice Monday for the first time. It will be in the individual drills (with) the emphasis there, the normal protocol that you want to bring guys back. Obviously, his veteran experience will factor into that.

“Aaron and Jordy will work as much as they possibly can on one-on-one routes and things like that. We’ve got a plan. We’ll start that plan and based on how it works out (in terms of) play time, I can’t really answer that question.”
