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.

    So Watson is out for the Season. Isn’t there any Packers practice squad lineman Reggie can sign to our roster?

    Well, one month isn’t too bad. Should have pleanty of season left to get a good look at the kid once he is healthy.

  • NGRaiderfan

    Palmer was always a decent player. Not great (after injury) not horrible. He played well last weekend as he should hes a 8-10 yr vet with one of the best receivers in the game. I didn’t watch the cards game but i’m sure it was much of the same from palmer. The int and fumbles probably hurt late and a loss is a loss. Yea he scored more points than pryor. But what would that game have been if palmer was under center for the raiders last sunday? Probably a blow out like 75% of the other games we had with him under center. I kno he wasnt rushing for 100+. Thats for sure. Same problems. Same receivers. Sketchy line. No run game… Let’s be real here.

    Trade SeaPerch for O-line or WR.
    ============================================
    You’re being way too tough on the ‘Perch’.

    I’m as frustrated as anyone by Janikowski misses.

    No doubt he’s had some bad ones. More numerous in his early years. I’ll never forget the miss in AZ. That might have cost us the playoffs.

    However, Jani has been very reliable the last few years, up until his miss last week.

    Didn’t miss a single FG inside the 50 last year, right ?

    Has won games for us with his big leg.

    OT against the Jets. Houston. Denver. And a clutch kick in the snow in NE in a PLAYOFF game that he made look easy.

    Let’s not forget that the ‘perch’ was nursing a sore calf that probably prevented him from practicing much last week.

    Has Jani been ‘hurt’ a bit too much ? Has he had his bad moments ? Yep.

    But overall, he’s been solid. One of the strengths of the team.

    What do you realistically think we’re getting for him in a trade ? An impact WR ?

    Who is going to replace him ? Araguz ?

    Perch will be solid for several more years and should retire a RAIDER.

    Your criticisms of Nnamdi, Seymour and Prez Soetoro are on the money. Jani, not so much.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    hmmm watson out for at least a month

    so is return may be followed in a couple of weeks by veldheer

    valdheer plus watson will be a huge upgrade for the book ends

    i have a feeling this team will be far better than it is now come the second half of the season, and it will be pryor that is the driving force behind the resurgence of the entire org

    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.

    @Mistic

    I don’t give Reggie props for “keeping Pryor” lol

    what a stupid comment. Pryor is Mark’s guy

    Reggie traded for Flynn, drafted Wilson and brought in DA’s mancrush McGloin

    even after all that he worked out Vince Young, Tyler Thigpen, Seneca Wallace, etc

    Reggie & Dennis tried to make sure TP2 wouldn’t sniff a spot on the 53 man roster. I’m glad the guy who “doesn’t know football” got involved !!

    credit for Pryor goes to Pryor, with a pat on the back to Davis Jr.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

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

    This is even more exciting time, because pryor while he lacks the polish and veteran savvy of jc, is every bit the leader that jc is and light years better as dynamic play making force. he will gain the veteran know how with time

    I believe pryor can get us a superbowl if we build around him.

    i believe that failing to do so would haunt this team for the next decade and you will spend at least that amount of time trying to find a talent on his level, that also matches the work ethic he brings

    I think we will be fortunate to get Veldheer back at the very end of the season, if at all this year.

    “The bad news?

    “Of the ones that were repaired, they generally missed a whole season to come back, but most were able to come back and play,” Yagnik said. “It’s not necessarily a career-ending injury, though.”

    Lewis had surgery Wednesday, and the Ravens put him on injured reserve with the designation that he could return this season. That seems like wishful thinking even if the Ravens make the Super Bowl because, Glashow said, a tendon is not fully healed for three months. That does not include the time it would take Lewis to regain the normal strength in his arm. Berry and Warren both said it took them about six months.”

    We defiantly would’ve made playoffs if we hadn’t lost Campbell That season. We were actually a force and looked like an nfl team even with all the cap problems and still having McClain and all the al Davis picks playing. I miss having wimbley, Kelly , semour, and Houston as a Dline we were one of the best at the time IMO and we had the bush factor! (Michael bush) man I miss those days…….
