  • Nick Nelson: Waived after failed physical

    The Raiders waived Nelson (knee) with a failed physical designation Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Nelson was waived by the team in May and landed on the reserve/PUP list, and this knee injury is expected to keep him out for the 2020 season as well. The 2018 fourth-round pick has played in just 12 games since entering the league, and he'll shift his focus on getting healthy for the 2021 campaign.

  • Raiders' Nick Nelson: Questionable for Week 3

    The Raiders have listed Nelson (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins. Nelson saw his practice time reduced as the week progressed, as he must have done something to tweak his hamstring. He was still able to work in limited fashion, so he is looking like a true game-time decision. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would likely see an increase in snaps providing depth at cornerback should Nelson ultimately be unable to suit up.
