Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson practiced on Monday, more than a week after injuring his ankle against the Arizona Cardinals. Nelson, who missed Week 8 because of a hamstring injury, returned in Week 9 only to injure his ankle early in the game.
Nelson has 40 catches for 532 yards and five touchdowns this season for the Packers. Green Bay, which had a bye in Week 10, will face the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Nelson's ankle injury was never thought to be too serious but it's good for fantasy owners to know he's back out on the field. Nelson was starting to turn it on before injuries forced him to miss nearly two entire games.
Fantasy owners should monitor injury reports but can plan on starting Nelson if they normally would in Week 11 against Detroit.
