The Las Vegas Raiders activated rookie defensive end Tyree Wilson from the non-football injury list Wednesday.

The No. 7 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft has been sidelined since undergoing foot surgery last November.

The 6-foot-6, 275-pound Wilson is clear to start practicing with the Raiders, coach Josh McDaniels confirmed.

“It’s progressing the way we thought it would,” McDaniels said. “So now it’s time to take the next step here and get him on the field and in his pads. Start working toward the ability to be in team drills and all that stuff.”

Wilson, 23, played three seasons at Texas Tech (2020-22) after one season at Texas A&M. He racked up 17 sacks and 122 tackles for loss in 43 games.
