Chiefs’ Steven Nelson’s impact has been underrated but important

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs saw the return of CB Steven Nelson a few weeks ago and I thought it would take the Chiefs a while to get him acclimated again. The Chiefs threw him right out there.

Nelson played 73 percent of the snaps (53/73) in Week 8 against the Broncos.

The next week against the Cowboys he played in 96 percent of the snaps (64/67).

For a team that has benched one cornerback for another already this season, his return from injured reserve was a welcome one and he’s made an impact. I said he’s not going to be a savior that is going to change the Chiefs fortunes all at once but he’s going to help.
