The Jets have released wide receiver David Nelson, the New York Daily News reports. The move clears a roster spot for Percy Harvin, who was brought over from Seattle in a trade Friday. Nelson caught eight passes for 65 yards in six games this season.
Jets wide receiver David Nelson was limited to only one grab for the fifth time in six appearances in a Week 7 defeat to the Patriots on Thursday. Nelson went the first three quarters without a reception. He came down with an 11-yard grab on the final drive of the night, which led to a blocked field goal as time expired. He was targeted twice in a 27-25 defeat.
The following offensive players have received the green light for the Jets Week 7 at New England: Tight end Jace Amaro (knee), Eric Decker (hamstring), Chris Johnson (ankle) and David Nelson (ankle).
A rather lengthy Jets injury report for their Thursday game against the Patriots is dominated by probables. The lone exceptions are wide receiver Greg Salas (wrist/ankle) and linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), both of whom have been ruled out. The probables are tight end Jace Amaro (knee), guard Willie Colon (knee), wideouts David Nelson (ankle) and Eric Decker (hamstring), tackle Breno Giacomini (back), defensive lineman Damon Harrison (ankle), running back Chris Johnson (ankle), center Nick Mangold (shoulder) and cornerback Darrin Walls (knee).
