Jalen Richard back practicing; might fans get first preseason look at intriguing rookie this week?

New, comments

Raiders rookie Jalen Richard was turning some heads in training camp. His return to practice could mean we see his first game action.

Just five days after Raiders undrafted rookie running back Jalen Richard was reported to have had his knee scoped, he was back at practice with the team. This according to local media at practice today.

Richard — a former tryout player — was looking very intriguing in training camp and was making a push for a roster spot before he went down with a knee injury just prior to the team’s first preseason game two weeks ago.

For that reason he has yet to suit up for a preseason game. As of the last week, the target for his return was expected to be the preseason finale, but his return to practice today could suggest we may see him take the field this week when the Raiders take on the Titans in Oakland.

Certainly getting him back this week would help the team with their evaluation of him. Even if he only sees a few snaps.
