According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Jets wide receiver David Nelson missed the first week of OTAs while they made sure he wasn’t a public health menace.
Jets coach Rex Ryan termed it an “illness,” but it was more serious than that.
During a trip to Haiti to do charity work, Nelson was bitten by a mosquito. His fever spiked to 104 degrees and had strep throat, so the team told him to clear out.
