Raiders HC Jack Del Rio mentioned that second-round DL Jihad Wardlooked pretty good” during practice, despite the reports that needed arthroscopic knee surgery and six weeks recovery.

He looked pretty good, right?” Rio said, via Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area. “Don’t trust all those reports out there. We felt pretty good about our reports. He looked terrific. He’s very athletic. He’s a serious guy, and intelligent guy. We’re excited about him.

Ward says he’s fully healthy after undergoing surgery during the season to repair a knee injury.

“I was very confident I’d be ready to go,” Ward said. “What happened during the football season required surgery, but I’m completely fine. I was able to run around and practice well. I need to keep doing that every day.”
