Watson, a second-round pick in April's draft, was originally a right tackle, but was moved to left tackle after original starter Jared Veldheer tore his triceps in training camp. Watson suffered his injury in practice last week, and missed the team's opening game.
Fantasy impact: The Raiders had hoped to improve its offensive line with Veldheer and Watson, but they haven't even been able to see those guys on the field in 2013 yet. As it did in Week 1, the team will likely start Khalif Barnes and Tony Pashos at left and right tackle, respectively.
The NFL's leading rusher Sunday was quarterback Terrelle Pryor, and both he and running back Darren McFadden will need a strong O-Line if they are going to put up the numbers they are hoping for. Veldheer was placed on injured reserve with designation to return, and Watson ought to be back by Week 6 or 7, so the team hopes its patchwork line can work in the meantime. But this isn't good news for either Oakland running guy.
