    Menelik Watson hurts calf again...

    Jesus f'n christ. Can we get healthy before the season ends so we can see what we have?! Is that too much to ask?!

    http://www.csnbayarea.com/raiders/ra...son-back-shelf

    ALAMEDA – Offensive tackle Menelik Watson suffered yet another injury setback during a frustrating season where he can’t stay on the field.

    The Raiders second-round pick missed Wednesday’s workout with an injury to the same calf that kept him out most all of training camp. He completed a few practices before the exhibition finale at Seattle, when he tore the lateral meniscus in his knee. That required surgery and a month’s rehab.

    Watson was a limited participant during last week’s work, until his calf strain flared up again.

    “It’s frustrating for him and frustrating for us that we haven’t been able to have him out there,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. “We’ve had him maybe a total of 10 days since the start of training camp.”

    Injuries have slowed the development of a player expected to contribute in some capacity right away. Watson’s absence – in combination with other injuries – forced Khalif Barnes to slide from left to right tackle, but the emergence of late signing Tonhy Pashos has lessened the blow of Waston’s injuries.

    Watson’s absence still hurts. He showed promise at left tackle against the Seahawks and was a solid right tackle in college, but hasn’t paid dividends.

    They’ve carried him on the 53-man roster all season, and he hasn’t been close to playing his first regular-season game.

    “We need him to get healthy,” Allen said, “so we have an opportunity to see what we have.”

    NOTES

    “Wiz” still out: Raiders center Stefen Wisniewski missed his fourth straight practice with a knee sprain suffered Sept. 29 against Washington. Veteran Andre Gurode started in his place Sunday, after playing the two previous games at left guard.

    “It’s an adjustment, but he’s played center at a high level for a long time in this league,” Allen said of Gurode, a five-time Pro Bowl center. “He played pretty well against San Diego, and he’ll improve with more time at the position.”

    Burris nearly eligible: Raiders linebacker Mile Burris has been on the physically unable to perform list since the start of training camp. He’s eligible to return after Sunday’s game, and has 21 days to practice once he resumes football activity.

    The second-year pro said two weeks ago that he would be ready when eligible to return, and has lately been doing side work during each practice.

    “As we get closer to the day, we’ll make a determination,” Allen said. “If we feel like he’s ready to get into a full-scale practice, we’ll activate him. The worst thing we can do is bring him back too soon. We need to make sure that he’s ready to go.”

    INJURY REPORT
    Limited participation: RB Rashad Jennings (hamstring), RB Darren McFadden (hamstring), RT Tony Pashos (groin), FB Marcel Reece (knee), DT Stacy McGee (shoulder)
    Did not practice: SS Tyvon Branch (ankle), C Stefen Wisniewski (knee), OT Menelik Watson (knee)
    Injured reserve: TE David Ausberry (shoulder), RB Latavius Murray (ankle), K Eddie Carmona (leg), G Tony Bergstrom (foot); Designated to return: LT Jared Veldheer (triceps)
    Physically unable to perform list: LB Miles Burris (knee)

    Release him. But first lets sign McFadden to extension. He is a beast.

    They have a LT,veldheer.They need a reliable guard in this draft and maybe a late round tackle.I say keep watson or trade him if someone wants him.Maybe his knee was just not ready to get back.

    I'm still convinced this has to do with something on the part of the coaching staff. I don't know if they are not conditioning them properly or pushing them too hard in practice or what.

    His calf injury, I thought, was a result of his knee injury.

    Or... some convoluted theory of that nature, at least as proposed by the media.

    Ostensibly, the talent is there, but the most talented guy in the world does little to help the team if he's unable to play on Sunday. Hopefully the team is relatively healthy after the bye-week; considering how they've looked under adverse conditions, I almost think this is a good team when they get all of the pieces back.

    Veldheer is the big injury, IMO - Barnes can play RT adequately, at least until / unless Watson unseats him; but you cannot replace an upper-echelon LT, which Veldheer is.

    LOL, wow the excuses people come up with for McFadden. So now its the coaching and training staffs fault. That would about do it for the excuses. What's next the water boy didn't supply him with fresh water?

    Dude why is everyone so harsh on McFadden? He's a running back, and running backs get hurt! I say resign him to an adequate deal and draft or sign a above average RB to back him up, or vice versa. Sign him to a decent deal that won't break the back obviously.

    He's just such a major threat to let him walk to another freaking team and we're stuck with nothing. That, or draft Gurley from Georgia and we're good.
