I would apply for SSDI benefits if you are not working. If Nevada is an employment at will state, they don't have to put you in that position. You should definitely get a workers' compensation attorney to address your concerns.
Contact a local lawyer who is knowledgeable about Nevada work comp law. There may not be a requirement that they shift you to a different job- if it is a promotion, for example. If you are getting your work comp benefits, they are likely within their rights, but you need an attorney on your side to be sure.
