Shawn Nelson mentioned on twitter Wednesday that his migraine headaches had returned. Head coach Chan Gailey confirmed on Thursday that they are the reason why Nelson has been unable to practice.
Nelson has been listed on the team’s injury report since last Friday with what was described as an illness, but when asked if it is in fact migraine headaches, Gailey said the following.
“Yes, it came up again.”
Gailey said again because last season Nelson had battled migraines for a period of time during the season and then the athletic training staff was able to remedy the situation and he played the rest of the season with no relapses. But as football fans have seen with Minnesota’s Percy Harvin, there’s no rhyme or pattern to migraines cropping up at any time.
Nelson’s migraine problems are likely part of the reason why the Bills added TE Mike Caussin to the roster after placing Dwan Edwards on I-R.
