Las Vegas Raiders rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs wasn’t able to practice Thursday or Friday with a knee injury. He did participate in the Saturday walkthrough though and now it appears he will be able to go against the Saints on Monday Night Football, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Ruggs was able to play through his injury in Week 1, but didn’t do much after he came back in the game. Tonight he’ll likely see cornerback Marcus Lattimore often, which is a tough matchup for the rookie coming off an injury. If you need him, he’s going to play, but if a player like Tre’Quan Smith is available, he should have an easier path to fantasy points with Michael Thomas out.
