Green Bay Packers' Mike McCarthy: Jordy Nelson 'hasn't missed a beat'

BY foxsports • July 31, 2015

After just one training camp practice, all doubts about Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson and his hip appear to be cleared.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy spoke after practice about how Nelson looked after having offseason hip surgery, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

Nelson was able to shed some light on the exact procedure he underwent after playing in his first Pro Bowl. He said it was a hip impingement that needed to be "cleaned out," according to Ryan Wood of Press-Gazette Media.

In addition to making his first Pro Bowl, Nelson also set a career-high total for receptions (98) and yardage (1,519) in 2014. His 13 touchdowns last year approached his career-best total of 15, set in 2011.

Nelson, 30, has eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards in three of the past four seasons and figures to play a large role in Green Bay's offense again in 2015. Moving forward, his health will be key.
