Wisconsin fans are getting excited about seeing the Badgers at Lambeau, while Green Bay supporters can't wait to see Jordy back on the field. As the Green Bay Packers make final preparations for their preseason game against the Oakland Raiders tonight, the big excitement in town is the return of Jordy Nelson off the PUP list and back to practice.

Aaron Rodgers' favorite receiver is finally ready to practice. The Green Bay Packers got some terrific and long-awaited news on Wednesday, the eve of the team's second preseason game. According to the NFL's official transaction wire, the Packers activated wide receiver Jordy Nelson from the Physically Unable to Perform list, making him eligible to begin practicing and participating in preseason games. This was the final step in the return to action for Nelson, who tore his ACL in the second game of the 2015 preseason (in Pittsburgh). He indicated that the knee that landed him on the PUP...

Packers Q&A with Football Outsiders: Rodgers’ efforts wasted by receivers in 2015

FO’s Vincent Verhei helps us break down what went wrong on offense last year and what to expect in 2016. Although the Green Bay Packers got their preseason underway on Friday night, the team has three more tune-up games to go in order to help answer the various questions that surround the team. Hopefully in that time we will see wide receiver Jordy Nelson return, as his absence was a huge contributor to the offensive struggles a year ago. Today, however, we hope to get some answers to several of these questions from a more statistical point of view. In what has become an annual tradition...

Aaron Rodgers hopeful that Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook will return from PUP list next week

Could Green Bay get two of its injured receiving options back in the next few days? Although the big news out of Canton this evening was the cancellation of Sunday’s Hall of Fame Game due to issues with the field conditions, there was one other significant piece of information that slipped out tonight. That item revolves around a pair of Green Bay Packers who are currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list - wide receiver Jordy Nelson and tight end Jared Cook - and it actually came out of the mouth of his quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.

The Hall of Fame Game turf came from the New Orleans Superdome

Yes, the turf that is installed in Canton was at the Superdome just last season. Tonight’s scheduled Hall of Fame Game between the Packers and Colts was canceled over an hour ago, but we are constantly learning more about the decision to cancel the game as well as the field conditions itself. One of the fascinating pieces of information revolves around the actual turf in use at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. That stadium was likely renamed to honor Benson, the New Orleans Saints owner, because of this fact that was revealed by ESPN’s Adam Schefter this evening: "This is a field that...

Packers Roster Battles: Where do the wide receivers stand after a week of training camp?

Green Bay is in the midst of training camp and heading into the preseason. Some wide receivers are making strides while others aren't impressing as much as their teammates. On-field scrimmaging isn't the most ideal setting to judge position battles, but some Packers wide receivers are using public showcases to prove their worth on the roster. Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams (barring additional slippage in camp) look like locks in the No. 1 through No. 3 slots in the depth chart, but there's a fight to land the coveted No. 4-to-5 position. On Sunday, daily practices and...
