  • Nelson (knee) had a workout with the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Nelson played only two of the first five games of the season due to the knee injury before being released by the Raiders on Oct. 10. The 27-year-old now appears healthy and will attempt to find a new team. Nelson could provide a deep threat if he joins the Texans with Will Fuller (hamstring) likely out multiple weeks.

  • The Raiders released Nelson (knee) on Thursday. Oakland was counting on the speedy Nelson to provide the team with a field-stretching threat opposite Tyrell Williams, but that never really came to fruition while the former missed four of the team's first five contests due to injury. With the Raiders recently bringing in Zay Jones via trade to bolster the receiving corps, there apparently wasn't any room left for the banged-up Nelson. Once he shakes off the injury, Nelson could end up re-signing with Oakland or land elsewhere as a depth option.

  • Nelson (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears in London. Nelson was downgraded to non-participant in Friday's practice, which turned out to be a harbinger of his inactive status. With Nelson's fellow wideouts Tyrell Williams (foot) and Dwayne Harris (ankle) also on the shelf Sunday, the Raiders are down to a top receiver trio of rookie Hunter Renfrow, Keelan Doss and Trevor Davis against a ferocious Bears defense. Tight end Darren Waller may be in line for a bump in his already massive workload as a result, but quarterback Derek Carr's prospects, already shaky to start with versus Chicago, become downright grim in the wake of the multiple absences.

  • Nelson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bears in London. Nelson worked as a limited participant the first two days of the week, so it's not a great sign that he was downgraded to a non-participant Friday. Tyrell Williams (foot) and Dwayne Harris (ankle) are also questionable, potentially pushing Hunter Renfrow and Trevor Davis into expanded roles Sunday.

  • Nelson (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Nelson was a last-minute inactive ahead of the Week 4 win over the Colts in what was attributed to a bout of leg tightness, but it's a knee issue more specifically that has limited his reps in practice the past two days. While Nelson's ability to practice in any capacity can be taken as a positive sign, he'll probably need to upgrade to full participation Friday to have any shot at avoiding an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Bears.
