Raiders' Nick Nelson: Clears waivers, reverts to PUP-R
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (knee) has cleared waivers and landed on the Raiders' Physically Unable to Perform-Reserve list, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Nelson was originally waived with a failed physical designation. He is now stuck on the team's PUP-R until he can get healthy. The 2018 fourth-round pick played in just two games last season, primarily as a special-teams contributor, before sustaining a knee injury.

Nick Nelson: Let go by Las Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders waived Nelson (knee) with a failed physical designation on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

The move to waive Nelson opens up a spot for fellow cornerback Prince Amukamara on the 90-man roster. The 2018 fourth-round pick appeared in two games as a special-teams contributor with the Raiders last season before sustaining a knee injury. When healthy, Nelson will look to latch on in a depth capacity with another club.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chargers with a knee injury.

Nelson was hurt in just his second game on the active roster this season. The Raiders will be without some of their special-teams depth for the rest of the game.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was promoted from the Raiders' practice squad to the active roster Wednesday.

Nelson, who appeared in 10 games as a rookie with the Raiders in 2018, will provide depth at cornerback in Week 15 against the Falcons with starter Daryl Worley (neck) potentially staring at an absence.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Nelson was listed as questionable after being added to the injury report Friday with the undisclosed illness. The rookie fourth-round pick should see his usual role as a depth cornerback for the Raiders.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Nelson was listed as a limited participant in Friday's walk-through practice due to an illness. The depth cornerback's Week 11 availability likely hinges on how quickly he recovers from his undisclosed illness, so Nelson could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Cardinals. With Gareon Conley (groin) also listed as questionable, the Raiders could call upon Leon Hall to slot in at right cornerback.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Nelson was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, but he appears to have fully recovered. The depth cornerback and return man seems on track to suit up for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Ruled out for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins, the Raiders' official site reports.

Nelson's absence figures to leave an opportunity for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to see additional snaps behind starters Rashaan Melvin and Gareon Conley at cornerback, but Nelson's injury doesn't appear to be too severe as he could return in Week 4 against the Browns.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Questionable for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Healthy to enter regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Nelson suffered a hamstring injury in the team's third preseason game against the Packers, but he appears to be progressing towards a full recovery. The fourth-round pick stands to play a key rotational role at nickel corner to begin the 2018 regular season, and he appears on track to suit up for Monday's season opener against the Rams.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Injures hamstring Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson exited Friday's preseason game against the Packers with an apparent left hamstring injury, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Nelson will try to work his way back to being healthy before the regular season begins. If the rookie out of Wisconsin is forced to miss practice time, look for Daryl Worley and Shareece Wright to get additional snaps at cornerback.

Raiders' Nick Nelson: Full participant in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson, who missed the Raiders' minicamp in June during his recovery from a torn meniscus, has been a full participant at training camp, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Nelson suffered a torn meniscus during a pre-draft workout and was sidelined earlier this summer as a result, but he's since returned to full activity at training camp as he competes for the nickel cornerback spot. The fourth-rounder has strength and size on his side in the nickel position at 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds.
