Return of Stefen Wisniewski brings optimism to Raiders

(10/25/2013) Raiders center Stefen Wisniewski appears ready to return to action from a right knee strain and play Sunday against Pittsburgh, per the Oakland Tribune. Wisniewski, who has been limited in practice this week, has missed the last two games.
Offensive coordinator Greg Olson did not downplay the importance of having Wisniewski back. "It's huge," he said. "He's such an important part of what's going on up front and making sure everybody is in the right place. It's a calming factor for me and everybody up front, and for the quarterback as well."
The return of a veteran presence could prove particularly valuable against the Steelers, who use a variety of zone blitzes.
