ESPN: Watson to miss a month

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.

    @Mr Brown

    our o-line played GREAT … for a group of ragtag misfits & scrubs!

    Flynn would have been sacked 10 times and fumbled 2 or 3 of them. no interceptions, but no 1st downs either

  • Marks hair

    experience in watching him struggle

    Trade SeaPerch for O-line or WR.

    Will this be the week B Butler gets into the action?

  • Marks hair

    “obvious”? you’re not quoting me who are you quoting?

  • http://repealitnow.org MistaBrown

    Ok Mark great insight. You know how games will be played out if other players are plugged into the lineup! How long have you been doing this? When is the next hurricane, tornado, terrorist attack?

  • Marks hair

    yeah weather prediction is just like football

  • Marks hair

    look. We have all seen what Palmer does behind a shaky offense of line with a running game averaging three yards a carry and wide receivers to drop a lot of balls…..
    this offense isn’t very much different than last years.. same problems Palmer couldn’t handle them for 2 years and he wouldn’t be able to handle them now its not a prediction, its simple pattern recognition..

    This is going to be a break through weekend for Pryor. I liked what I saw during his press conference yesterday. Mature, looking at his peers (Brady, RGIII, etc.) for things to build into his skill set…just a good looking kid who I continue to say REALLY wants to WIN. Not paying lip service like that jerk Palmer during his horrible tenure here…good riddance and I pity the poor ARI fans…yuck!

    Raiders will win, Pryor will have more td passes than ints, and I think this will be a confidence builder and springboard to a winning season. Hard to honestly say Pryor and the Raiders will get past the Bunkos, I mean I know I’m optimistic, but I’m a little realistic…

    Go Raiders!

    PFF:

    Palmer: +5.7
    ==================================
    Does a +5.7 PFF rating indicate a QB played a really good game ?

    If it does, it’s misleading in the case of CP against the Rams last Sunday.

    I watched the game, CP played a decent game. He had over 200 yards passing at the half.

    His stat line for the entire game was pretty good.

    BUT, if you watched the game, you saw a really bad interception to open the 2nd half.

    You would realize AZ’s first TD of the second half was a Defensive TD. CP didn’t put those points up.

    CP did throw a very nice TD to Fitz that had the Cards in control and on the way to victory.

    If you watched the game, you would have seen the Cards pretty much had the game in the bag, but CP – despite NOT playing horribly – didn’t come through when it counted. He failed to move the team when it counted. Missed on opportunities. Was lucky he wasn’t picked on a poor throw which was deflected by a dropping LB. Fumbled when he was sacked. Went 3 and out on the next to last AZ posession when putting points on the board could have won it.

    So if a +5.7 PFF rating is supposed to indicate a very good game by a QB, it’s not an accurate measurement of CP’s performance last Sunday.

    He played well at times. Made some nice throws. Also made some poor throws. Most importantly, he didn’t get it done – despite 400 yds passing.

    I know what I saw.
