Raiders’ Khalil Mack to play in game on Thursday against Colts
Raiders’ rookie Khalil Walker will play against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday in his first game since injuring his shoulder in the preseason opener, the team announced on Tuesday.
Walker’s injury is a setback for Oakland, which had hoped to have him back on the field by Week 1 but suffered setbacks in the first three games.
The Raiders had hoped for Walker to be ready for Week 4 but have been forced to wait longer for his return.
Walker missed two games this season with a fractured collarbone and a knee injury.
He missed two more games last year after sustaining a fractured right hand.
The team said that Walker will start against the Colts.
