ESPN: Watson to miss a month

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, September 12th, 2013 at 8:27 am in Oakland Raiders.

Rookie tackle Menelik Watson will miss up to a month after having arthroscopic knee surgery, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported in a tweet Thursday.

Watson missed almost all of training camp with a calf injury sustained during training in the offseason. After one padded practice, Watson was inserted at left tackle and played into the third quarter of the preseason finale against Seattle, playing well enough to earn the starting job.

He never made it to the opener, injuring his knee. Raiders coach Dennis Allen has been asked about Watson’s condition and declined to give specifics regarding how long Watson will be out.

Asked if he had any information on Watson Wednesday, Allen said, “Nothing other than he didn’t practice today.”

The Raiders added tackle Jack Cornell to the practice squad to replace Matt McCants, who was elevated to the 53-man roster when it was determined Watson would not play against Indianapolis.

Left tackle Jared Veldheer is on the short term injured reserve list after surgery to repair a torn left triceps and the earliest he can return is Nov. 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    MistaBrown – That’s pretty funny but the 3rd string QB is the one who holds the clipboard.

    none of that matters

    no qb means no shot

    pryor is all that matters this year and is the center piece moving forward

    aaron Rodgers doesn’t win the superbowl with our team this year

    having solid young players and cap space does matter if you want to be a contender

    the moves I mentioned matter

    jason campbell drove the raiders to first place and you could see the team growing under his veteran leadership.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    And in about three weeks, he’ll be out on the field trying to do the same thing for the Cleveland Browns.

    Maybe these rules are just a way to keep fining players legally so the NFL can continue to get more and more money. It’s like cops giving out ridiculous tickets so the city can get more money.

    As Pryor’s teammates are finding out more and more, being himself mean few, if any, days off.
    “It’s been successful, getting the guys in, and I believe that’s why we had some success against Indianapolis,” Pryor said, “because we had guys like Darren McFadden, Marcel Reece, that wanted to get better, and they’re in a meeting room on an off day on Tuesday at 8 in the morning.
    “That shows that you want to be successful and that’s just a burning desire to be successful. I believe that if we just keep on getting more guys to do that, we’re going to be better.”
    =========

    you see this?

    so pryor dmac and reece by far the most talented players on our offenses and perhaps our team are working at 8 am on off days

    they would not show up if they did not believe in pryor

    dmac and reece our most celebrated vets and dmac with one of the biggest pay checks means the rest of the offense will fall in line

    Im telling you now when talented players believe in a leader they will go all out and pryor will drive them above thier talent level

    guys we have our qb for the next decade!!!!

    wave of the future and i told you it would be so

    you don’t agree with JFB that Weeden is going to have a great year under Norv?

    still no comment on Luck’s titties?

    or DA having this team fired up and ready to go?
    ==================================================
    Luck doesn’t have titties. Those are pecs.

    Tits had the RAIDS fired up and ready to go ?

    Not so sure about that. Was 14-0 in a hearbeat.

    There was once a rallying cry – ‘Win one for the Gipper’

    2013 RAIDS – ‘Win one in spite of the Titter’

    Worst HC in the NFL.

    Aaron Rogers won’t be winning the Super Bowl with the Packers this year either. That dude probably goes to sleep every night dreaming that Kappy breaks his leg.

    “Before his sophomore year began he ran a 4.33 40-yard dash in a race against Ray Small and many others. He was the fastest Buckeye in 2009.”

    “On September 25, 2010, Pryor had a break-out game in a 73-20 win over Eastern Michigan. He had 6 total touchdowns, including one rushing and one receiving.”

    so far the best move in the mackenzi era has been retaining pryor

    nothing and i mean nothing he does done outside of that single move has made an ounce of difference so far

    +++++++

    Let’s be fair….cutting the dead weight players like Huff, McLame, and TK….and letting DHB walk instead of paying him like his agent wanted….those were all good moves and will pay off in the future.
    ——

    To be fair, that’s something any arm chair GM would’ve done. So far McMumbles really hasn’t done anything special.

    ==================

    stop it hater

    we are not talking about arron rodgers or the current raiders that are not named pryor.

    ther is only one indispensable part in football its the qb

    you could have hall of famers top to bottom but if you dont have a good qb you will not go far

    nobody drafts a db or guard and says we will build around him to make a super bowl run

    gms head coaches are tied to the qb

    no qb means no chance

    ask the vikings, they have talent all over the field and one of the greatest runing backs in nfl history

    ponder stinks and they will go nowhere

    where would the pack be with out rodgers or the saints with out breeze/

    the cowboys are super talented but romo is trash

    bottom line only the qb matters and you go from there

  • raiderlization

    Palmer has more experience also playoffs! Pryor has two games! That’s also a big difference between them and Palmer has a Pro Bowl/ Super Bowl WR!

  • raiderlization

    Tampa thinks it can build one around Revis! LMAO!

  • Gdog

    I just saw a play on the coaches film where McF got blown up in the backfield… BOTH Mastrud and Barnes whiffed in blocking the same guy.

    Our run blocking is a joke.

    But its McF that is at fault. Oh and CP too…

  • dplunk

    I’ll say this in defense of Reggie Mac: “you can’t make someone join your team. the feeling has to be mutual, so the more the Raiders progress, the better the chances that the top-level free agents would want to come.
