David Nelson injury: Bills reportedly think WR tore ACL

The Buffalo Bills might have lost more than just a Week 1 game to the New York Jets on Sunday. They are afraid wide receiver David Nelson tore his ACL, Pro Football Talk reported Sunday night via Twitter.

The Bills fell to the Jets on Sunday, 48-28. They lost both Nelson and running back Fred Jackson to injuries. Nelson left the game in the fourth quarter, appearing to hurt himself while making a cut.

The Buffalo News' Tim Graham reported that the prognosis looked a lot worse for Nelson than Jackson:

"Fred doesn't look as bad as David," Bills coach Chan Gailey said. "We don't know how bad David is, but it doesn't look good right now."

Jackson's injury is believed to be a sprain. There was no word on how bad Nelson's knee was. They will be re-evaluated Monday after MRIs pinpoint the extent of their injuries.

Nelson was second on the Bills last season with 61 catches for 658 yards. The third-year receiver from Florida also caught five touchdown passes last year.
