Nelson, a rookie who has started the last 12 games, also was
limited in yesterday's practice.
If Nelson doesn't play against the Steelers, second-year safety
Jamaal Fudge probably would make his first career start.
Nelson's injury could be another blow for a defense that lost
three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Marcus Stroud (ankle) for the
season last week. Jacksonville also is playing without linebacker
Mike Peterson (hand) and defensive end Reggie Hayward (groin).
Defensive end Jeremy Mincey (hamstring) also missed practice and
is listed as questionable. Defensive end Paul Spicer (shoulder) and
cornerback Rashean Mathis (groin) are probable.
