Burnett, Nix return to Raiders' practice

September, 20, 2013
Oakland Raiders linebacker Kevin Burnett returned to practice Friday and was a full participant after being limited the day before, and left guard Lucas Nix, who missed the previous two days of practice with an ankle injury, practiced on a limited basis.

The other three players on the Raiders' injury report -- tight end David Ausberry (shoulder), strong safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) and left tackle Menelik Watson (knee) -- did not participate.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said after practice that Brandian Ross would likely start at strong safety in place of Branch on Monday night in Denver.
