Chiefs ac­ti­vate Nel­son ahead of game against Bron­cos

Imperial Valley Press - - SPORTS -

The Chiefs have ac­ti­vated cor­ner­back Steven Nel­son from in­jured re­serve, where he has been since train­ing camp, and he could make his sea­son de­but Mon­day night against Den­ver.

Nel­son had core mus­cle surgery be­fore the start of the sea­son.

The Chiefs’ de­fen­sive back­field has been shred­ded in re­cent weeks, al­low­ing more than 400 yards pass­ing and three touch­downs to Derek Carr in a 31-30 loss to Oakland a lit­tle more than a week ago.

Nel­son started 15 reg­u­lar-sea­son games and the Chiefs’ post­sea­son game last sea­son, mak­ing 65 stops and 16 pass breakups.

He can play on the out­side op­po­site Mar­cus Peters, re­plac­ing Ter­rance Mitchell, or more likely will han­dle slot du­ties in place of Phillip Gaines. just
