Packers' Jordy Nelson: Full practice Wednesday

Nelson, who had been nursing a back injury, practiced in full Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Nelson was curiously on the sideline during the final drive of Sunday's win in Dallas, but no reason behind the wideout's absence was mentioned, aside from Packers head coach Mike McCarthy stating the wideout "was being evaluated" during that time. Fortunately for Nelson, he brushed off his back concern and completed every practice rep Wednesday. He'll thus be available in Week 6 against a Vikings defense that has given up 13.0 yards per catch and three touchdowns to wide receivers through five games.
