David Nelson was one of three receivers not practicing Wednesday along with Stevie Johnson and Naaman Roosevelt. The good news is Nelson said he’ll be back on the practice field full go on Thursday.
“I’ll be back full go tomorrow,” said Nelson. “So I’ll be good to go. After the performance last week I’m very eager to get back on the field and get to work.”
Nelson was dealing with the stomach flu last week and had trouble keeping food down. He also took a big shot on the interception return for a touchdown on a pass that went off his hands. Nelson expanded on all that he was dealing with last week while still trying to play.
“It was a combination of things,” he said. “It was a rough week last week. I rolled my ankle a bit in the Dallas game. I had the stomach flu last Thursday. I didn’t eat for two or three days. I tried to come out and didn’t feel good before the game, then I got hit and it flared some things back up and I just couldn’t get right. The staff didn’t feel it was in my best interest to come back out in the second half and that was that. But I’ve got some food in the last couple of days and I’m back to feeling good again and being the player and person I was so it’s time to get back and make some plays.”
