Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson played in his first game since tearing an ACL last summer. He seemed to have shaken off the rust pretty quickly, catching six passes for 32 yards and a touchdown.
Not only was Nelson productive, he didn’t even worry about the injury that held him out for the entire 2015 season.
“When I was out there, I wasn’t even thinking about it,” Nelson said after the game, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.
The Packers were certainly happy to have Nelson back, but the offense was far from perfect, even with Nelson lined up outside. Aaron Rodgers threw for 199 yards and the offense accumulated only 294 total yards.
The Packers will take it. They staved off the Jaguars, winning 27-24 to start the 2016 season on a good note.
