Jordy Nelson Full-Go, Lane Taylor to start

Posted:

While most people had off to celebrate Labor Day, the Packers were back in action.

The biggest news out of the day was that wide receiver Jordy Nelson will be "full-go" for the Packers' season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Sunday, September 11th.

Nelson suffered an ACL tear in the 2015 preseason, missing the entire season. The wide receiver did make an appearance on the field, in pads, for the second preseason game, though he did not play. 

Other news out of the locker room, Lane Taylor has earned the starting spot at left guard after the release of Josh Sitton. 

Taylor has only recorded two career starts in three years, which came in place of Sitton's only two non-starts in 112 games over his eight years with Green Bay.
