Jordy Nelson injury: Full practice signals return to field, fantasy owners with a game this week are pleased

Chris Graythen

Too bad there aren't many of them! We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson practiced in full for the second straight day, making it very likely that he would return to the field for the Packers' season finale against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17. It's been a rough year for the Packers leading receiver in 2011, playing in just nine games and catching just six passes since Week 7.

With Randall Cobb potentially doubtful for the game, getting back Nelson would be great news for Aaron Rodgers and the offense with a potential bye week on the line.

Fantasy Take: Cobb's status is up in the air, Nelson looks like he is all set to go. However, he has been anything but a safe play this year. He should be counted as a WR3 in Week 17.
