Oakland Raiders third-year wide receiver Rod Streater broke out last season by hauling in 60 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns, and it will be interesting to see if he gets enough opportunities to top those numbers in 2014. The Raiders made huge upgrades at quarterback by trading for veteran Matt Schaub and drafting the talented Derek Carr in the second round, but Streater has increased competition for targets after the addition of James Jones and further development from the ever-intriguing Andre Holmes.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Vic Tafur, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen stated that Streater suffered a concussion during practice on Sunday, so he and fellow wideout Juron Criner, who is nursing a hamstring injury (is he ever healthy?), were not at practice yesterday.
Streater should be day-to-day at this point, but there isn’t any cause for concern at this point. This is Streater’s second concussion in the NFL, and both have occurred before the regular season. He should be a big factor in the team’s passing attack once again next season, and he’s consistently averaged around 15 yards per reception. With further development as he heads into his third season, Streater can do even more for the Raiders passing attack.
