Several media outlets are reporting Jordy Nelson has been cleared to return to practice.

ESPN's Field Yates reports Nelson has been taken off the Packers' PUP list after passing a physical.

The Pro Bowl receiver missed the entire 2015 season after suffering a knee ligament injury and has missed most of the Packers off season workout due to issues with his other knee. Without Nelson, the Packers offense suffered during 2015 dropping from one of the best units in the league to 23rd in productivity.
