Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver David Nelson hasn’t been with the team long and it looks like he won’t be on the field Sunday afternoon when the team takes on the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field.
Nelson, who injured his shoulder during his first practice with the team after being signed a week ago Wednesday, will undergo an MRI this week, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com.

Even though Nelson was a longshot to make the Steelers roster, he really could’ve used the rest of the preseason to showcase his talents to other teams around the league.
With receivers Nelson and C.J. Goodwin both still sidelined with injuries, the Steelers were forced to sign undrafted rookie free agent Jarrod West a few days ago. West could see action late in Sunday’s preseason game against the Packers.
