Jets released WR David Nelson.

Nelson became expendable after the Jets gave up a conditional pick to acquire Percy Harvin. Nelson played in 6-of-7 games for the Jets this season while nursing a lingering ankle injury, recording eight receptions for 65 yards.
Sat, Oct 18, 2014 09:23:00 AM

Returning from a one-week absence, David Nelson caught 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in New York's Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

Active six times this season, Nelson has caught more than one pass just once.

David Nelson (ankle) is probable for Thursday night's game against the Patriots

With Greg Salas sidelined, Nelson will be the Jets' No. 3 receiver.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 04:29:00 PM

David Nelson (ankle) is expected to return for Thursday's game against the Patriots.

Nelson was limited in Monday's practice, but upgraded to "full" on Tuesday. He'll serve as the Jets' No. 3 receiver against the Pats' stout pass defense.
Tue, Oct 14, 2014 01:30:00 PM

David Nelson (ankle) is inactive for Week 6 against the Broncos.

Nelson is week to week with an ankle injury. Jeremy Kerley and Greg Salas will run behind Eric Decker versus Denver.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 11:45:00 AM

David Nelson (ankle) is questionable for Week 6 against the Broncos.

Nelson was able to get in two straight limited practices and will likely come down to a game-time decision. With Eric Decker expected to return this week, Nelson is unlikely to play in three-wide sets.
Fri, Oct 10, 2014 08:42:00 PM

David Nelson (ankle) returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

The Jets are just managing Nelson's reps after he escaped Sunday's blowout loss without setbacks. The Jets' No. 3 receiver is miles from fantasy relevance.
Thu, Oct 9, 2014 06:48:00 PM

David Nelson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Nelson played in three-wide sets last week with Eric Decker sidelined, but may have suffered a setback with his ankle injury. His status will be updated again on Thursday.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 02:33:00 PM

David Nelson caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's Week 5 loss at San Diego.

With Eric Decker (hamstring) sidelined, Nelson played through his ankle issue and got four targets. It's four too many. The Jets need to make an upgrade on Nelson, who has 7-54-0 on 14 targets this season.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 08:20:00 PM

David Nelson (ankle) expects to play in Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Nelson said he was able to do "almost everything in practice" Friday and should be active barring any setbacks. With Eric Decker a game-time decision, Nelson could see time in two-wide sets.
Sat, Oct 4, 2014 03:39:00 PM

David Nelson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Chargers.

Nelson was expected to miss the game, but coach Rex Ryan has been impressed with his improvement throughout a week of limited practices. Even if Nelson plays, he has zero fantasy value. He'd play in three-wide sets.
Fri, Oct 3, 2014 12:52:00 PM

David Nelson is expected to miss Week 5 with a "severe low ankle sprain."

The Jets will turn to a three-receiver set of Eric Decker, Jeremy Kerley, and Greg Salas. Nelson never had fantasy football value in the first place.
Wed, Oct 1, 2014 08:09:00 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan hinted Monday that WR David Nelson's ankle injury could be "significant."

The Jets' Monday signing of Chris Owusu would seem to support that belief. Nelson has managed six receptions for 45 yards through four games, fumbling twice. His loss would not be a major blow to New York's sputtering offense.
Mon, Sep 29, 2014 05:35:00 PM

David Nelson was forced from the Jets' Week 4 game against the Lions with an ankle injury.

Nelson stayed on the ground for several minutes after twisting his ankle. He was able to limp off the field. Nelson is out for the rest of the game.
