Tyree Wilson poses with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after being selected seventh overall by the Las Vegas Raiders during the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft at Union Station on April 27, 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Las Vegas Raiders defensive rookie Tyree Wilson is now available to practice with the team.

According to multiple reports, the team activated its first-round pick from the non-football injury list Wednesday.

In late July, Wilson, the seventh overall pick in this year’s draft, was added to the Raiders non-football injury list. Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal said at the time the move was expected because of Wilson’s injury while at Texas Tech last year. In his final year as a Red Raider, Wilson injured his foot in November and had season-ending surgery shortly after.

Head coach Josh McDaniels said it’s time for Wilson to take the next steps.

“Get him on the field and get him in his pads. Start working towards the ability to be in team drills and all the rest of that stuff,” McDaniels said. “So, we’ll try to take it at the right pace here as we go.”

Defensive end Maxx Crosby said the rookie has been asking a lot of questions.

“This was his first day out there with us,” Crosby said. “So, he wasn’t able to go in team and things like that, but you see him asking a ton of questions and getting better. So, it’s awesome to see him out there with us.”

The edge rusher played 44 games between Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Over those four seasons, Tyree Wilson totaled 121 tackles, 17 sacks one forced fumble and one pass defended. He was named a First Team All-Big 12 and Second Team Associated Press All-American in 2022.

The Raiders are in Los Angeles this week, holding joint practices with the Rams ahead of Saturday’s preseason game.
