Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb return to Packers practice

Packers wide receivers Randall Cobb (biceps) and Jordy Nelson (knee) both returned to practice on Sunday, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Of the two receivers, Nelson appeared to be in the most danger of potentially missing the regular-season opener against the 49ers. Nelson had knee surgery at the beginning of the month and was projected to miss "4-6 weeks."

Both should be ready to go for Week 1.

With Greg Jennings heading to division-rival Minnesota in free agency and Donald Driver retiring, Cobb, Nelson and James Jones have the potential to all see more targets come their way.

Earlier this offseason, quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that Cobb could haul in 100 receptions, which would be something no Packers receiver has done since 1995.

Worried some about Nelson's availability for the start of the season, I will now move him up some in my fantasy rankings later today.
