News: The Bengals secondary lost both of their coaches, Vance Joseph and Mark Carrier, to other organizations, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Nelson, who left the Bengals' playoff loss to the Steelers with an ankle injury, thrived in 2015 under the two coaches, racking up eight interceptions and 77 tackles.

News: Nelson has been ruled out of Saturday's wild-card game against the Steelers due to an ankle injury, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Impact: Nelson is the backbone of a staunch secondary, but the free safety won't log another snap in this game. Joined on the sideline by Dre Kirkpatrick (quad), who is questionable to return, Nelson has yielded his spot in the lineup to Shawn Williams.
