Packers WR Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule in recovery from torn ACL

GREEN BAY— When the Green Bay Packers went back to work Monday, April 18th for the official start of the team's offseason workout program, they saw more of wide receiver Jordy Nelson and less of running back Eddie Lacy.

Nelson is on the comeback trail following last year's season-ending knee injury. Lacy looks slimmer after being called out by coach Mike McCarthy for being overweight last year. Lacy rushed for 758 yards last season and averaged 4.1 yards per carry. He is in the final year of his rookie contract.

Nelson, who caught 98 passes for a team-record 1,519 yards while earning his first Pro Bowl berth in 2014, says he doesn't have a mental "block" about his recovery from a torn ALC in his right knee.
