Raiders lose OT Watson to torn Achilles tendon

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Menelik Watson will have to wait another year to prove he's starting material.

The Raiders tackle suffered a ruptured Achilles against the Cardinals on Sunday night. He'll miss the entire 2015 campaign.

"That's a tough break for us," head coach Jack Del Rio told reporters. "It's really unfortunate. He was having a great camp for us."

The former second-round pick was impressive this summer, according to Del Rio. He needed another year of reps to combat his relative inexperience -- 17 games played with 12 starts.
