Raiders Pro Bowl Wide Receiver Returns to Practice

Things are looking up for the Las Vegas Raiders. The team won their first game of the 2022 regular season in Week 4, and better still, wide receiver Hunter Renfrow returned to practice Wednesday after a two-week absence. Renfrow last played in the Raiders' Week 2 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He had a game to forget, fumbling twice on the team's final drive of overtime, the second of which was returned for a game-sealing touchdown. Evidently, Renfrow had his reasons. His concussion cost him games against the Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos.  Renfrow joined the Raiders as their 149th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after a storied college career at Clemson that included an undefeated NCAA championship season. The shifty slot receiver quickly established himself as a reliable underneath target, tallying 1261 receiving yards across his first two years before breaking out with a Pro Bowl season in 2021 that saw him pull in 103 receptions for 1038 yards and nine touchdowns. 

Renfrow will rejoin a Raiders pass-catcher group that includes Davante Adams and Darren Waller. The team faces the Kansas City Chiefs this week in a pivotal AFC West clash on Monday Night Football.
