Report: Former Wisconsin DB suffers knee injury during private NFL workout
Tough break for former Wisconsin DB Nick Nelson.
During a private workout for an NFL team, Nelson tore his meniscus and now needs surgery, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. Nelson will likely miss the next 3-4 months following next week’s scheduled surgery, but he should be ready to return for the start of the season.
Nelson is largely projected to be a fourth-round-type of prospect in the upcoming NFL Draft.
The talented DB was a consensus first-team All-Big Ten in 2017 and should have a solid NFL career.
Bad news for #Wisconsin’s Nick Nelson, a top CB prospect: He tore his meniscus during a private workout with a team and will have it surgically repaired next week, sources say. Nelson is out 3-4 months but should be healthy for the season.
