Projected starting wide receiver Denarius Moore suffered what appeared to be a right hamstring injury during practice Tuesday, though coach Dennis Allen didn’t seemed overly concerned.
“He’s going to be fine,” Allen said. “We’ll evaluate it. Usually those things take a couple of weeks or so, so we’ll see where he’s at.”
Moore got hurt while making a sharp cut on a down-and-out route midway through practice. Quarterback Carson Palmer pump-faked and then pulled down the ball once he saw Moore get injured.
A trainer quickly came to Moore’s aid, placing Moore face down on the grass and working on his hamstring. The trainer eventually escorted Moore into the locker room, from which he didn’t return.
Moore has about six weeks to recover from his injury before the Raiders begin training camp in Napa on July 29. He likely won’t be allowed to participate in the final two days of the three-day mini camp this week.
He was unavailable for comment after practice.
