Chiefs' Steven Nelson: Continues stellar play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson tallied three pass breakups and one interception during Sunday's victory over the Chiefs.

If Nelson keeps playing like this, he could garner quite a few Pro Bowl votes at season's end. Usually holding down the right side of the field, Nelson was rarely tested by Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen and when he did see a pass come his way, Nelson usually made a play on it -- bringing his season-long allowed passer rating to 59.0, per Pro Football Focus, which is the second-lowest of all defensive backs. Since no receivers really caught a ball in his coverage, Nelson's goose egg in the tackle column can't be seen as a bad thing from a real-life perspective. However, it does affect his fantasy production, so don't expect much from Nelson as an IDP prospect.

Chiefs' Steven Nelson: Interception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson recorded three tackles (two solo), two passes defensed and an interception across 83 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

A four-year pro, this was Nelson's first career interception and a memorable one at that. With the Jaguars sitting on the Chiefs' goal line just before halftime, Nelson intercepted a ball that Blake Bortles threw off an offensive lineman's helmet, keeping a first-half shutout alive for the Kansas City defense. It was one of four interceptions thrown by Bortles on the day.

Chiefs' Steven Nelson: Returns to game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (undisclosed) returned to Sunday's contest, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Nelson had reportedly been nursing an apparent lower body injury but it seems as though he's good enough to trot back out there. The four-year veteran will slide back into his role at starting cornerback.

Chiefs' Steven Nelson: Leaves game with apparent lower body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson left Sunday's game with an apparent lower body injury, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

The Chiefs haven't released much information pertaining to the injury which leaves the rest up to speculation. If Nelson can't return, Orlando Scandrick figures to have a bigger role within the secondary.

Chiefs' Steven Nelson: Suffers concussion Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson, who left Friday's preseason game against the Falcons prematurely, has been diagnosed with a concussion, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

Nelson must clear the league's concussion protocol before returning to practice, so David Amerson and Tremon Smith could see additional reps with the first-team defense alongside fellow cornerback Kendall Fuller in the meantime.
