Nelson waived/non-football illness

The Jets announced late Tuesday afternoon that TE Shawn Nelson has been waived/non-football illness.

The team declined to divulge the extent of the illness. Nelson, 26, has had a history of migraine issues.

The Jets signed Nelson Oct. 31, during their bye week, but he never appeared in a game and spent most of the time on the sideline with his illness.
