David Nelson gets good news on knee injury

By Jay Skurski

PITTSFORD – The injury news isn’t too bad for Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson.

He’s got a strained tendon in his right knee, an injury that should keep him out just four or five days, according to coach Chan Gailey.

“It’s nothing serious. No long-term damage. The way it looked on film, the way it felt on the field, I’m very lucky to have the diagnosis I got,” Nelson said Sunday, after the Bills completed their first night practice of training camp at St. John Fisher College.

Nelson was hurt Saturday, when he made contact with defensive end Mario Williams, then got his leg rolled up on.

“When it first happened, I thought it was blown,” he said. “… You see that happen a lot, so I thought I was done. Coming in, we did some different testing on it, and it all came back negative, so that’s a positive sign and I should be back in a few days.”

The Bills have their first day off of camp Monday.
