Lechler, according to an Associated Press report, passed his physical and was taken off the non-football injury list. Lechler is a big field-position weapon for the Raiders and made the Pro Bowl last season with his ability pin opponents deep in their own territory. He hammered an 80-yard punt last season.
The other injury news involves linebacker Aaron Curry, who has two bad knees and is facing make-or-break time if he is going to be able to play or not. Curry has never been able to live up to the expectations of being a high first-round pick in 2009.
