Browns WR David Nelson has returned to practice after missing most of camp with a bone bruise in his surgically repaired right knee.  The wideout had avoided reporters, leaving his injury an unknown.  Many had assumed Nelson had a setback in his recovery from an ACL tear in that knee.  He returns to a team that has shown passing-game improvement through 2 preseason games and will be missing WR Josh Gordon for the 1st 2 regular-season contests.  Nelson figures to work behind WR Davone Bess, though, and is a long shot to make any fantasy impact.

The Browns have signed WR David Nelson.  The former Bill turned in a promising 2011 campaign, tallying 61 catches, 658 yards and 5 scores.  A torn ACL ended his 2012 season in September.  Cleveland must feel comfortable about his rehab progress, though.  Nelson is unlikely to overtake Josh Gordon or Greg Little for a starting spot, but we like his odds of winning the #3 WR job.  That, of course, wouldn't be enough to make him a fantasy factor.

Bills WR David Nelson has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and is done for the season.  It's a significant loss for the Bills.  Nelson was the team's slot receiver in their spread attack and reeled in 61 balls last year.  He'll likely be replaced by speedy-but-raw rookie WR T.J. Graham.  WR Donald Jones also figures to see more time in the slot now.  Stevie Johnson remains the only Buffalo WR worth starting on a weekly basis.  It's been a rough couple days for QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.  He tossed 3 INTs against the Jets on Sunday and will now be without one of his most-reliable receivers.

Bills WR David Nelson suffered what sounds like a potentially serious knee injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets.  He was able to walk off the field but had to be carted from the locker room to the team bus after the game.  "We don't know how bad David is, but it doesn't look good right now," HC Chan Gailey said.  Rookie T.J. Graham could be a candidate to take over Nelson's slot role.

As expected, Bills WR David Nelson (ankle) is active for today's game against the Dolphins.  He can safely be used as a WR3.

Bills WR David Nelson missed practice on Wednesday with an ankle injury and Thursday with an illness.  He returned to a limited workout on Friday, though, and is listed as probable for this weekend's game against the Dolphins.  He should be fine to use as a WR3, but check back on Sunday morning just to make sure he's active.

The Bills have confirmed that WR David Nelson will take over as the primary slot receiver after WR Roscoe Parrish's season-ending ankle injury.  Nelson has been ultra-efficient through 2 weeks, hauling in 14 of 19 targets for 149 yards and a score.  And HC Chan Gailey has always utilized the slot receiver in his offense, so the production is no fluke.  Reports of C.J. Spiller being used more in the slot make the situation worth monitoring, but Nelson should be targeted on the waiver wire in all PPR formats (and even deeper standard-scoring leagues).

Undrafted rookie WR David Nelson is getting work with the 1st-team offense at Bills OTAs, according to the Buffalo News.  At the University of Florida, Nelson totaled just 46 catches for 630 yards and 7 TDs in 4 seasons.  He does go 6'5, but the fact that he's even a contender for the team's #2 WR job shows just what kind of shape this Bills passing game is in.
