It’s a tough break for Nelson, who suffered the same injury back in 2017. After recovering from the torn bicep, Nelson had a tough time finding a gig during the 2018 campaign, limiting him to only a single game. After getting released by the Buccaneers in August, he joined the Broncos for his second stint with the team. Through seven games (two starts) this season, he’s collected 10 tackles.
The former seventh-rounder had spent the first four seasons of his career with Denver, including a Super Bowl-winning campaign. His best season came in 2016, when he compiled 67 tackles and five passes defended in 16 games (five starts).
