The Packers designated Nickerson (hamstring) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinelreports.

The transaction initiates a 21-day practice window for Nickerson, wherein the Packers can evaluate him for reinstatement to the 53-man roster. The third-year cornerback will likely contribute exclusively on special teams if he does get added to the roster for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers or a potential Super Bowl appearance to follow.
