The Green Bay Packers have the potential do something very special in 2015.

After managing to sneak defeat from the jaws of victory in the NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks, where Brandon Bostick muffed up an onside kick, the Packers will be raring to try and right those wrongs next year.

Green Bay's biggest threat is their offense which contains four Pro Bowl caliber players; Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson. Having to deal with all of that talent has to be a nightmare for opposing defensive coordinators. 

Jordy's Back

It is the last man on the aforementioned list that has given some good news for the Packers fanbase today. According to a report from ProFootballTalk, Jordy Nelson has returned to practice for the first time. 

Nelson had been sidelined all this time thanks to a hip surgery that he underwent following the culmination of the NFL season, but thankfully he seems to be ahead of schedule.

“It’s going great,” Nelson said. “We’re right where we want to be. We haven’t set exact targets but what I wanted to get done, we’re getting done. We have another couple days here and another week and then we’ll be doing good.”

Nelson worked with the team on Tuesday and did position drills during the portion of Wednesday’s practice open to the media before giving another update on where things stand.

Nelson is a bonafide star now and one of the best wide receivers in the entire National Football League, but you never know when an injury is just around the corner, and following his surgery, Nelson is more susceptible right now, which is why the Packers will be taking it easy with him.

Nelson was incredible in 2014, playing in every game and setting career highs with 98 catches, 1,519 yards and he hauled in an impressive 13 touchdowns, which was good enough for tied second with Antonio Brown, with Dez Bryant taking the top spot with 16 TD's.
