NY Jet’s Nelson ‘Quarantined’ After Mosquito Bite In Haiti

New York Jets’ wide receiver, David Nelson, missed the first week of the team’s Organized Team Activities (OTAs) after coming back sick from Haiti.

Nelson said he had picked up “a bug” from a mosquito bite while he was in Haiti doing charity work. He suffered from a strep throat and had a 104-degree high fever. He was told by officials to keep clear from the team until he was fully recovered. “I was quarantined,” says Nelson.

Nelson is now healthy and participating in preseason OTAs, however raises concerns when travelling to tropical regions and exposed to mosquitoes.

I’m Me, a charity by the Nelson brothers, provides food, shelter and education for orphans in the impoverished country. He spends his offseason working in Haiti for his foundation.
