Nelson played just five offensive snaps during last Friday's 13-6 preseason win over the Packers and didn't see any targets in the limited action.

Nelson also logged five snaps in the exhibition opener before sitting out the Raiders' second preseason tilt with the Rams entirely. The lack of playing time shouldn't be viewed as a concern for a 33-year-old receiver in his 11th NFL training camp, as Nelson won't be forced to fight for a starting role in his first season in silver and black. Though he's no longer a big-play threat, Nelson makes up for his diminished speed with precise route running and still offers a quality red-zone target at 6-foot-3 and 217 pounds.
