Nelson's hit was at the knees of Teddy Bridgewater when he was coming in on a hit. You're not allowed to go that low on a quarterback so they can protect their knees. It was similar to a hit that Tamba Hali was fined for last year against the Cardinals' Drew Stanton.
Last week was the second time this season that Nelson has been active. Expensive week for the rookie.
