Raiders tight end Clive Walford will miss spring practices after injuring his knee in an ATV accident, Fox Sports reports.

Walford, a third-round pick out of Miami in last year’s draft, caught 28 passes for 329 yards and three touchdowns in 2015. According to the report, he’s undergone surgery on his knee and the damage “may not be as bad as originally thought.”

Oakland still has Mychal Rivera, who started last season, on its roster, though Walford was expected to get an increased workload in his second career season.
