Several Raiders out injured for "Who knows" how long

Defensive tackle Pat Sims at Oakland Raiders minicamp - Levi Damien

Despite the month off for rest and recovery, the Raiders entered training camp with several players not practicing. Miles Burris, Pat Sims, and Menelik Watson were all relegated to stationary bike duties in practice today. Some of those injuries are unknown and their timetable for return is a mystery as well.

"Who knows" said Dennis Allen on when the team can expect these three players back in action. "I don't know the answer to that. I know they're working extremely hard to get themselves ready to go. They've got injuries and when they're healthy enough to practice, they'll be out there."

Burris has been out all off-season as he recovers from a surgery he had on his knee in January. Watson and Sims hadn't missed any time this off-season and their injuries were not revealed.

Burris and Sims have both been placed on what's called the "Active PUP" list which is essentially like the NFI list in that a passed physical activates them. Those on the Active PUP list still count against the 90-player roster limit.

Watson, along with D.J. Hayden were placed on the non-football injury list on Thursday. As of Friday morning, Hayden was removed from the list, given a red non-contact jersey and took the field. Watson did not come back.
