If you needed proof that Nelson has returned to dominant form following last year's ACL tear, check out Sunday's game. Nelson repeatedly beat tight coverage on short throws before a deluge of deep shots came pouring down from the sky.
Nelson finished with 118 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions.
Nelson's speed might not have returned -- maybe it never will -- but the 31-year-old is still able to win at the top of his route, has a mind-meld with Aaron Rodgers and owns sticky hands.
"I don't know how much more Jordy needs to prove," McCarthy said. "He's going through what every great player goes through in that first year back from major injury. He practices every day, and those are the little things that are probably most important. Because I think his performance speaks for itself."
