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.”

    Hill,
    I think all the chips fell into place for Indy last year. I think they get exposed for a weak D this year. So they’ll end up 8-8. I mean how the hell can they expect to go far with DHB as their starting WR. From my vantage point, Richardson is an avg rb to above avg at best. These guys can be had in the 2nd or later rounds. You pick a RB in the first round if he is a can’t miss prospect.

    right knee MCL?

    dang – see you in November

  • RaiderRockstar

    if the Browns can trade T-Rich, we sure as heck can trade DMAC

    compensation will be a lot different, but what better time than after Jags game?

    can he pull off 100+ sometime again this season?

    only done it like 8 times in 6 years – right?

  • aig-raiders

    Good to hear on Watson. he played on a banged up knee and looked pretty good for the lack of experience (an under statement). The future is bright in Oak town.

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

    Richardson is a young, hard running player with championship creds. McFadden is a soft, one dimensional back who can’t block or catch. Who is going to trade for that?

    sorry u are too thin skinned to take criticism of our rotten qb.

    wait, do u suffer from some sort of medical condition of actually having thin skin?

    dang. sorry.

    Giants or Steelers might trade for DMAC – possibly Jags?

    im glad the changes are coming and hope they can deliver on cleaning out the trash here.

    As an okalnd resident it is terrible for the to have to come here and read things that say people ’should be hung from tress” for example or “black qbs suck” or be called monkey and so on

    people have complained about me and even tried to have me banned, yet i have never said anything so disgusting.

    I think of the youth that come here and have to be battered by this garbage.

    nobody wants to read that kind of filth

    clean all of the sock puppets and cross posters out as well.

    It grows tiresome skipping over hundreds of post at a time while one guy argues and agrees with his alternate handles on the same topics hour after hour, day after day non stop.

    “For more about the change, here’s what colleague David Pollak posted last Friday, as he he made the switch:

    “The Bay Area News Group is in the process of installing software designed to make it easier to regulate the online back-and-forth that can sometimes get out of hand. As a consequence, all the comments posted in past years soon will be gone.”
