Aaron Curry not limited in return to practice

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

For the first time since May, Raiders linebacker Aaron Curry practiced with his teammates. And he was not among those who worked on a limited basis according to the team's official injury report.

Curry is coming off having been placed on the physically unable to perform list with lingering injuries to both his knees. But despite his return today, it is not known for sure if he will play this week when the Raiders face the Jaguars.

Dennis Allen said in his Wednesday press conference that Curry had worked at each linebacker spot and when asked of his status for the game, he said only "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it" which were his exact words last week when asked about Curry.

Although, his not being among those in a limited capacity is a positive sign for his chances.

With Curry working at each linebacker spot, it could signal some plans for him other than his previous duties as weak side linebacker. With Miles Burris playing so well at that spot, the team may be hesitant to take him off the field.

Burris and Philip Wheeler played every snap against the Falcons last week while Rolando McClain came in and out of the game, playing just 31% of the snaps. With Curry in the mix, the team could either use him to sub out for Wheeler and/or Burris, line up in some 3-4 sets or keep McClain's snaps limited.

The Raiders have two more practices to monitor Curry's progress. Even if Curry is not limited in practice, he may need some time to get back into the swing of things. That would suggest, he may still not play this Sunday and if he does, it could be in a limited capacity.
