Raiders | Chomping At the Bit

The Contra Costa Times reports Oakland Raiders DE Trace Armstrong can't wait to "hit somebody" as he continues his rehab from last year's Achilles' injury. Armstrong returned to the practice field for the first time since the injury this week, but the Raiders are still holding him out of contact drills. "I'm close to being 100 percent," Armstrong said. "But I'm not hitting anybody. I'm very pleased with the progress I'm making. I've had a few minor bumps along the road, but overall I'm on target as far as where I want to be." Despite the injury to DE Regan Upshaw, Armstrong's role as pass-rushing specialist isn't expected to change.
