Oakland Raiders left tackle Menelik Watson will miss a month after having his knee scoped, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Raiders have had issues all preseason with their offensive line, with this compounding matters. It's one of the reasons the Raiders went with Terrelle Pryor at quarterback, since the team needs someone that can run away from defenders when pressure comes.
Watson tore his torn lateral meniscus, which is what the surgery was required for.
With Watson out a month, right tackle Khalif Barnes will temporarily move to the left side.
