Raiders relatively injury-free

September, 9, 2013
The Raiders emerged from their heart-wrenching 21-17 loss at Indianapolis with no injuries to speak of, coach Dennis Allen announced at his Monday news conference.

The only player he mentioned was strong safety Tyvon Branch, who was shaken up in a downfield collision with free safety Charles Woodson and Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton.

“Nobody got hurt that we’re worried about,” Allen said. “Tyvon’s got a bit of a sore shoulder but really, I don’t anticipate anybody missing anything.”

There was no update, though, on the status of two projected starters who missed the opener due to injury -- left tackle Menelik Watson (knee) and tight end David Ausberry (shoulder).

“I don’t know,” Allen said. “We’ll see if they’re able to practice this week. We’ll see where they’re at.”
