Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has had to wait nearly a year to get back on the field. That wait will be just a little longer.
According to ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky, Nelson won’t practice when the Packers hit the practice field on Tuesday morning.
Nelson was placed on the physically unable to perform list on Monday after players underwent physicals and conditioning tests.
The report says Nelson will be joined on the P.U.P list by Sam Barrington, Jared Cook, T.J. Lang, Corey Linsley and Ty Montgomery. They’ll all be on the sidelines for Tuesday morning’s first practice.
Packers Roster Moves
The Packers released running back Don Jackson and DE B.J. McBryde on Monday afternoon.
Jackson was an undrafted rookie out of Nevada. McBryde played college ball at Connecticut and had been with the Packers since being signed to the practice squad on nov. 18, 2015.
