    Packers' Jordy Nelson: Progressing well in rehab

    Nelson (knee) has been running at full speed for weeks, evidencing his impressive progress since tearing his ACL in August, reports. Nelson has by all accounts been far ahead of schedule in his rehab from knee surgery. In already being able to run at full speed, Nelson appears poised to be 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around, although it's possible his reps could still be monitored as a precaution. While that's certainly a long time from now, Nelson's progress since his injury is a source of encouragement for the Packers offense.

    Packers' Jordy Nelson: 'Far ahead' in rehab

    During Monday's media session, head coach Mike McCarthy told Rob Demovsky of that Nelson will "come back better than ever. He's so far ahead of the rehab." Since Nelson suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during the preseason, he's only been seen on the Packers' sideline during the course of the 2015 season. Following confirmation from McCarthy that Nelson's recovery is progressing well, the wide receiver seems on pace to be ready for training camp. However, Nelson turns 31 in May, so it's a legitimate question to wonder if he'll regain the explosiveness that was sorely missing from Green Bay's receiving corps in 2015.
