Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson claims that he’s still “progressing right on schedule,” but also noted that he’s”slowly progressing.”
Nelson doesn’t sound certain that he’ll be ready for the Packers season opener.
“You never know,” Nelson said, via FOX Sports Wisconsin.
Nelson says he was hoping to avoid surgery.
“You want to avoid surgery as much as possible and that’s what we tried to do,” Nelson said. “I thought we had it taken care of and then we realized we didn’t.
“I wasn’t going to be able to be 100 percent. It was something I would have been able to play through if it would have happened in-season or something, but there was enough time that we kind of took the chance that if everything went smooth we could get in and out during training camp and hopefully have a healthy 16-game season.”
Nelson realizes that he won’t be in shape when he comes back.
“There’s things you can do in the training room to hopefully get your wind somewhat close,” Nelson said. “Football is football and you need to play games to really be in shape.
“Our main goal is San Fran. And that’s just a goal. You never know what could happen. We’ll just continue to go day by day.”
