GREEN BAY, Wis. Clearance NBA Jerseys Store . -- The Green Bay Packers arent in a hurry to get star receiver Jordy Nelson ready for the start of the season.Coach Mike McCarthy said Saturday that Nelson, who was recently activated from the physically unable to perform list, will practice when the Packers get back on the field Monday. But Nelson will be a limited participant.Hell go through the individual (drills), and then well kind of take it from there, McCarthy said. So first things first.After not playing last season because of a torn ACL in his right knee, Nelson missed the first three weeks of Green Bays training camp this summer with an injury to his other knee, which he called a hiccup.Teammates feel Nelson, a nine-year pro with more than 400 receptions, wont need much time to get acclimated with the first game of the season only three weeks away.I cant put a time on when another man is going to be comfortable, fellow receiver Davante Adams said. But I know Jordy, and I know hell be ready.Even Nelson isnt expecting too much right away, a year after he suffered the ACL injury in a preseason game.Nelson doesnt know if he will play Friday, when the Packers travel to San Francisco for their third of four preseason games.Obviously, well take this weeks practice and see how everything goes, and well continue to move forward, Nelson said.McCarthy said the plan is to have Nelson work a lot with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in one-on-one pass drills in practice next week even if they dont get a chance to play together in the game against the 49ers.The goal for Nelson is to play the Sept. 11 season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.As far as I know, Im going to be playing Week 1, he said.Nelson made the comment after the Packers 20-12 exhibition win over the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night.A day after the Packers removed him from the PUP list and had him do some individual work in their closed practice, Nelson surprised many in the Lambeau Field crowd before Thursdays game. He wore his uniform, helmet and pads and went through warmups with the team, including running routes and catching passes.Im sure they enjoyed it, Nelson said about the fans, especially when everyone said I wasnt suiting up (for the game), and then I went out and suited up.Though Nelson didnt play, he drew the biggest crowd of reporters among Packers players in their locker room after the game.You guys are bored, and its the preseason, Nelson told them in a joking manner.Adams, whose locker is next to Nelsons, took notice of the big media group and wondered aloud in jest why a player who only warmed up before a game would get so much attention.Its been big, Adams said about Nelsons return. Hes a key part of this team, and hes coming back with us now, so were excited. I would expect you guys to be excited about it, too.Nelson also seems happy to resume football activities. He smiled a lot on the field during the pregame warmups Thursday.Theres a lot thats gone into it, Nelson said. Its another step in the right direction. Its another step to be ready for Jacksonville. Well just continue to work that way.NOTE: McCarthy said backup QB Brett Hundley will be hard-pressed to practice next week, making him unlikely to play Friday at San Francisco. Hundley reinjured his left ankle early in the second quarter of Thursdays game on a hit by Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack just as Hundley threw a pass. When it happened, I screamed, Hundley said Saturday, adding, Well take it day by day and see where it goes from there.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Charlotte Hornets Jerseys China .
