Khalil Mack returns to practice Thursday

AP

The Raiders had an important member of their team on the sideline for Wednesday’s practice, but Thursday brought better news about Khalil Mack.

The reigning NFL defensive player of the year sat out on Wednesday with what was called a knee injury on the team’s injury reports, which raised some concern that the team might be opening the season without their best defensive player.

Anyone who was concerned can let out a sigh of relief. Mack was back on the field and going through practice on Thursday.

Barring other word from the Raiders, that would seem to put him on track for his customary spot on the edge of the Raiders defense when they take on the Titans this Sunday.

    This guy is a beast and durable as well. I hope he finally gets the calls he deserves after winning DPOY.

    There would be holding on almost every single snap, if you go back and watch just him on every play its amazing how many double teams still hold him.

  2. Off topic. I have to laugh. The Raiders have been to the playoffs once in the last 15 years and got curb stomped by Brock Osweiler. The Raiders have one of the worst records in the NFL since 2002, no division titles, no playoff wins, and one winning season. Wow. Now suddenly, after last year, Nahsun decides they are going to win the SB despite so many glaring holes on their defense? Right. As Al might want to say, “Dream On Baby!”

  3. TBH, I thought Mack was virtually indestructible, impervious to weaknesses such as injuries. Yesterday was a near startling reminder that he is in fact human…or, that’s what whoever filled out the injurie report wants me to believe….
