Rod Streater Feels He is Close to Oakland Raiders Return


Hitting the practice field on Monday morning to return with his Oakland Raiders teammates for the first time since an early season foot injury suffered against the New England Patriots, wideout Rod Streater was the center of attention with the media following practice as the young pass catcher was grilled about his injury status.

Luckily for Raiders fans, Streater feels he is close to a return. Feeling good on the practice field and hoping to get back to full speed as soon as possible while developing timing with starting quarterback Derek Carr’s offensive unit.

“It felt good, a little winded out there just trying to get back in the flow of things, but it felt good being able to cut and run full speed,” Streater said to the media following Monday’s practice while adding that it felt good to be back with his teammates. “It felt good to be back out there with my team.”

Streater also feels that his return to game action is close, mentioning he went through the practice session without feeling pain.

“I think I’m close,” Streater mentioned. “I went through pretty much the whole practice without any pain, cutting full speed, catching it, so I felt good. I think I’m very close.”

The news that Streater is back is another boost to a Raiders team that is on a high of their Thursday night home win over the division rival Kansas City Chiefs and while a playoff push is statistically impossible at this point, returning Streater would be a boost to getting Derek Carr’s confidence in his development further along over the final games of the season. Once Streater makes his very likely return, the Raiders will be expecting the offense to take off along with it.
