Jordy Nelson Not Concerned About Lingering Effects From Hip Surgery

Mike McCarthy was asked back in March about Jordy Nelson being seen on crutches at a Milwaukee Bucks game and the head coach indicated that the wide receiver had indeed undergone surgery to fix a bothersome hip. 

Fast forward to yesterday's public OTA practice, and there was Nelson as a non-participant, still recovering from the "clean up" procedure. Asked about the procedure, Nelson apparently wouldn't even confirm it was his hip that was operated on. 

Nelson stated, via Wilde

It was something that hopefully will come out in about 10 years what we had done.

I got things cleaned up but everything’s going well. We’re excited where we’re at and continuing to move forward. Everything’s good.

Obviously, if it didn’t bother me, I probably wouldn’t have had the surgery. But nothing major. I had an opportunity to get some things cleaned up. We did it, and I think it was a good move and feel good about where we’re at moving forward.

Nelson was noticeably less effective down the stretch last year and one can't help but wonder how much his hip (or whatever) played into his slide in production. I tend to think the offense was naturally starting to find other outlets for Rodgers to use after they were so dependent on Jordy early on, but Nelson's lack of burst and separation over the course of the last three or four games was certainly noticeable.

Despite that possible hindrance, Nelson set a single-season franchise record for receiving yards last year, catching 98 passes for 1,519 yards.
