Watson eager to return from knee injury

ALAMEDA — Rookie offensive tackle Menelik Watson on Wednesday cleared up a few things in regard to his knee injury.
First, he first suffered the injury the week before the Raiders played the Seattle Seahawks in the teams’ exhibition finale.
So, when coach Dennis Allen said Watson “tweaked” his knee at practice the week of the Raiders regular-season opener against the Indianapolis Colts, what actually happened is that Watson aggravated the injury.
Watson revealed that he injured the medial collateral ligament in his right knee and that the injury was severe enough to warrant surgery.
“It’s nothing season-ending,” Watson said Wednesday. “My recovery is going well. My rehab is going well. I should move it around next week and be back as soon as I can. The surgery was painless. I’ll be back soon.”
Watson was slated to be the Raiders left tackle against the Colts. Now he’s focused on his rehab and staying sharp for his expected return later this season.
To that end, he’s doing everything that he can to get back on the field and make a contribution.
He’s also thankful that his injury isn’t as bad as it could have been.
“It’s not that bad,” Watson said. “It’s not something detrimental. It’s not an ACL or anything. So, I’m blessed in that sense.”

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. A Charlotte police officer accused of shooting an unarmed man 10 times after the man was in a car crash over the weekend is scheduled for appearance in court on voluntary manslaughter charges Tuesday afternoon.

    Officer Randall Kerrick fired 12 times at Jonathan A. Ferrell early Saturday after the 24-year-old was in a single-car wreck and sought help at a nearby house, police said.

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

    prudent move by the browns actually

    the browns can evaluate hoyer to see if he is qb of the future because they clearly are not sold on weeden.

    this is getting a jump on the draft process and exactly what oaklnd should have done last year.

    having said that though im sure there is a limit on how many non white qbs can start at any given time in the nfl

    teddy roosevelt would have wanted it that way

    makes no difference jc owned you when he was here, that doesnt change

    lol

  • Dan78

    Ok looks like I was able to get Dan78 ignore the last disqus comment

  • elraidmanhattan

    Aig- i agree, the rb’s are average at best but i would stick with their oline guys.

    Btw belicheck has a very poor draft record as well

  • elraidmanhattan

    Just would like to stick football, and nothing more

    Read that earlier.
    Was wondering if Pryor was referring to Flynn, or the media dwelling on it?
    Flynn had joked about the situation on twitter, plus it doesn’t really mesh with Pryor’s usual public comments.

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/Eternal Optimist

    Finally, Pryor was asked about the quarterback room. He had talked all of training camp about how good the room was, with everyone pulling for each other. Has that changed, he was asked, now that the roles had changed and he was the starter and Matt Flynn the backup.?

    “I just have to focus on the job at hand,” he said. “I can’t really think or worry about if guys are still dwelling on stuff. I have a job to do. My butt’s on the line. I have to get the guys going. I can’t really worry about that stuff.”
