Jordy Nelson is finally off PUP list; Jimmy Graham may not be ready for week 1

The Packers might have just lost their best wide out to a torn ACL

The Packers wide out is ready to play

Are you a Fantasy Football player?  If so your draft will be soon or maybe you have already had your draft.  We wanted to give you an update on a couple situations that are going on around the NFL.

The Green Bay Packers and their fans received good news on Wednesday. Receiver Jordy Nelson has reportedly passed his physical and is no longer on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform List).

He has spent the first two weeks of Green Bay’s camp sidelined with tendinitis in his non-surgically repaired knee. Getting Nelson back is obviously priority No. 1 for the Packers offense this offseason. Since 2012, the Packers have averaged five more points per game with Nelson in the lineup.

Then in Seattle…..

While Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham is progressing nicely in his rehab, coach Pete Carroll doesn’t know if he’ll be ready by the start of the season.

“There’s some evaluation to be done going into next week, but I don’t have any expectations for that right now. We’ll just wait and see,” Carroll said, via Sheil Kapadia of ESPN. “We don’t have a timetable for this that he has to meet any schedule at all. We’re just working him back, and he’s gaining confidence, and it’s really important not to have any setbacks. So we’re being careful.”
