It is official, Jordy Nelson is back to full health.
According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Green Bay Packers' star wide receiver has been activated from the physically unable to perform list after passing his physical, and is now eligible to practice.
Nelson was lost for the entire 2015 NFL season after he tore his ACL in his right knee during training camp. The Packers were then forced to place him on the PUP list at the beginning of training camp because of soreness in his left knee.
With his activation, it appears that Nelson remains on track to take the field for the team's Week 1 matchup.
Losing Nelson for the season was a huge blow to the Packers' normally potent offense. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered his worst statistical campaign with the 31-year old out of the lineup.
The Packers have three more preseason games before the start of the regular season, but it is unclear if the team will risk injury to Nelson by having him play in those remaining exhibition games.
They certainly can not afford to lose him again.
