Raiders injury updates: Menelik Watson returns, David Amerson expected to be fine for Sunday

New, comments

Some good news on the injury front for the Raiders today

Making his return to practice today was Menelik Watson, who was lost in the first half of the season opener to a groin injury. Also expected to be ok is David Amerson following a concussion he received late in the Raiders loss to the Falcons on Sunday. He is practicing today.

“He’s still working his way through it [the concussion protocol],” said Jack Del Rio. “We’ll get him in a limited capacity today. I expect he’s going to be fine for the game, he’s gotta go through the proper protocol.”

No questions the Raiders need Amerson in the lineup Sunday. He has been the team’s best corner through the first two games, including having an interception in the end zone last week against the Falcons.

Watson was the starting right tackle to begin the season. Austin Howard took over as the starter last week. No word yet on whether Watson will return to the starting lineup or Howard will keep the job vs the Titans.
