Injury Update at Packers Training Camp: Who's Returning? Who's Dropping Out?

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson and defensive lineman Josh Boyd returned to action on Tuesday.

The Packers returned to practice on Tuesday in shells and helmets but no pads, which may have contributed to them staying largely healthy during the past 24-period. They saw three players return to action but didn't see any new players drop out.


Who's Returning?

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson, hamstring

When Nelson sat out of the Packers' preseason opener against the Titans, along with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Eddie Lacy, it was assumed to be a precautionary measure. As it turns out, Nelson slightly pulled his hamstring last week. He missed two practices in total—last Friday and this past Monday. Nelson was reportedly eased back into practice on Tuesday, apparently in an attempt to not put too much stress on his hamstring.

Defensive lineman Josh Boyd, ribs

Boyd pulled out of this past Saturday's exhibition game with a rib issue. He only missed Monday's practice, so it wouldn't appear to be very serious matter. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, it looks as if Boyd will be able to play this upcoming Saturday in St. Louis against the Rams.

Safety Tanner Miller, ankle

After missing nearly two weeks of practice, Miller returned to action on Tuesday. His return to action, combined with fellow safety Morgan Burnett on Monday, creates some depth at the position that was missing during the team's first preseason game, which both players missed. This upcoming Saturday will represent the Miller's first game as a member of the Packers.
