Raiders C Stefen Wisniewski's Calf Injury Becoming A Growing Concern
Raiders starting C Stefen Wisniewski hasn't practiced or played since injuring a calf in the exhibition opener against Dallas, and he's in serious jeopardy of missing Saturday's game against Detroit. Wisniewski missed the entire offseason program while recovering from shoulder surgery. He has changed positions, moving from left guard to center, and is also learning a new offense and blocking scheme. Raiders coach Dennis Allen is concerned about the amount of time he has missed in camp. “He needs to get the reps,” Allen said after practice Tuesday. “You don't just show up and play, so every day he's not out here he's a little bit farther behind. He's been keeping up mentally, as far as taking the mental reps and in the meetings, but it's hard to replace those physical reps you get here and in games.” Allen has no specific deadline for when Wisniewski needs to return to practice to be ready to start in the Sept. 10 opener but he hinted that Wisniewski can't miss too much more time.
