Washington (knee) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Washington had arthroscopic surgery in late August and was listed as a non-participant on every injury report leading up to the season opener. He's trending in the right direction to start the week, but it will still come as a surprise if he's ready for Sunday's game in Denver. Meanwhile, Jalen Richard had five carries for 24 yards and nine catches for 55 yards in Monday's 33-13 loss to the Rams, securing his role as Oakland's top passing-down back. Washington may not even have a role in the offense once he's cleared.
Washington (knee) has a spot on Oakland's initial 53-man roster, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Washington had arthroscopic surgery in mid-to-late August, but it wasn't enough to put him on the wrong side of roster cuts. He'll likely compete with Jalen Richard for a minor pass-catching role once he's healthy, while Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin figure to get most of the carries.
Washington recently underwent arthroscopic to address a lingering knee issue, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Washington likely will miss the rest of the preseason, but head coach Jon Gruden suggested the knee injury won't kill the 25-year-old's chances of making the 53-man roster. Washington is competing for one or two spots in the backfield along with Jalen Richard and undrafted rookie Chris Warren.
Washington (knee) isn't practicing Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
The timing of the injury couldn't be much worse for a player on the bubble. Washington is competing with Jalen Richard and Chris Warren for one or two spots on the 53-man roster.
Washington (personal) retook the field for practice Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Washington temporarily left the team last week to tend to a personal matter, but he rejoined the fold Tuesday and should return to a battle with Jalen Richard for the third-string role behind Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin, with rookie Chris Warren also aiming for a roster spot.
