Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen says he expects Aaron Curry to come from the PUP list (sore knees) next week and participate in practice.
“I think he’s made some progress,” Allen said, per CSNBayArea.com. “It’s different when you’re doing your rehab work as opposed to when you’re actually out there playing football. It will be a great deal for us to get him out here, get him working some football, running around and doing some football movement and really getting back into the swing of what we’re doing defensively because it’s been a while since he’s gotten an opportunity to participate.”
Once Curry starts practicing, the Raiders will have three weeks to figure out if they want to place him on IR, the active roster of waive him.
“We’ll evaluate it,” Allen said. “I’m not going to set up a time frame for him. I know that once he starts practicing we got basically a three-week window to see where he’s at and see if he’s ready to play football. If he is, we’ll activate him, and if he’s not, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”
As bad as the Raiders have been this season, getting Curry back won’t give them a better chance of winning.
