“It’s a strained tendon in the knee,” Nelson said Sunday. “It’s nothing what it should have been. The way I fell back and the way it all happened, I’m very blessed to have that diagnosis. So, we’re just trying to be safe with it, so I don’t have any long term damage.”
“It was not bad, bad, but he is going to be out four or five days,” said head coach Chan Gailey. “It is a good thing we have a day off tomorrow to give him an extra day. We will see when he gets back. I am hoping maybe Wednesday or so.”
Nelson was examined for about 10 minutes after the injury occurred on the field Saturday, but Buffalo’s primary slot receiver dodged a bullet for sure.
“It is nothing serious,” he said. “There is no long-term damage. Like I said, the way it looked on film, the way it felt in the field, I am very lucky with the diagnosis that I have. I definitely have a guardian angel somewhere.”
