Watch: Raiders DE Tyree Wilson takes 'next step' after foot injury, hits practice field

It took until August, but the Raiders finally saw their first-round pick gear up and hit the practice field. Defensive end Tyree Wilson, the No. 7 overall pick in the NFL Draft, got his first action during a joint practice against the Rams in Southern California on Wednesday.

His participation was limited, as coach Josh McDaniels said the Raiders would be patient with Wilson and watch for progress. Wilson injured his right foot in November 2022.

“We definitely won’t ‘let it fly,’” McDaniels said of Wilson, according to the Raiders Wire’s Levi Damien. “He’s progressing the way we thought he would, and so now it’s time to kind of take the next step here. Get him on the field, in his pads, start working towards the ability to be in team drills.”

Considering that Wilson’s injury took so long to recover, it’s probably wise to not rush him and risk a setback. Besides, just the sight of Wilson on the field was enough to cause a stir. Here’s a look at Wilson’s debut, thanks to reporters who were on the scene.

Assuming Wilson can get back to his pre-injury self, he’ll have a prime chance to succeed, as Wilson will compliment an imposing edge duo in starters Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones. Wilson looks imposing himself, and it will be fun to watch him play, whenever that important step is reached.
