NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS

Raiders finally get back their starting center

Today when the Oakland Raiders entered practice they were excited to see their starting center Stefen Wisniewski returned back at practice for the first time since he sprained his right knee against Washington on Sept. 29.

Wisniewski was limited in practice, but coach Dennis Allen was optimistic Wisniewski could play Sunday against Pittsburgh and give the O-line a lift, both physically and mentally.

“I think that’s huge,” Allen said. “I think what he means to our offensive line, the type of player he is, his intelligence level, helps us with a lot of the communication, not only in protective schemes, but also in the run game. Communication is going to be critical against this defense and making sure we can identify where the rushers are coming from. Wiz has done a great job of that for us all year long, so it’s good to have him back out there.”

I know Terrelle Pryor is excited to finally have hos anchor back. That will be huge for the Raiders.
