Burgess gets a second opinion


It’s not looking good for Derrick Burgess with regard to playing against the New Orleans Saints Sunday at the Superdome.

Burgess missed practice for the third straight day with a triceps injury and coach Tom Cable said the two-time Pro Bowl defensive would be seeking more medical advice.

Cable said Burgess would be on the trip to New Orleans but it was doubtul he would play.

In that case, Jay Richardson would move to left end, with Kalimba Edwards opening at right end.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (elbow), running back Justin Fargas (groin) and guard Cooper Carlisle (ankle) all practiced without restrictions before the Raiders boarded their charter flight headed to New Orleans.

Running back Darren McFadden (toe), linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba (shoulder) and tight end Ben Troupe (foot) were limited. McFadden and Ekejiuba should play, Troupe would be available if active.

Cable seemed confident McFadden would play a prominent role along with Fargas.

“Absolutely, we’ll spot it,” Cable said. “I see those guys being able to do a lot, like we did in Kansas City, a good mix of the two of them.”

Safety Gibril Wilson, out with the flu the previous day, practiced without restrictions Friday.

    we will always be better than the broncos even if we never win a game again, more history and tradition here.

    better than lame denver I don’t care what happens even John Elway knows Raider women are better…..

  • hi friends

  • Well goodnight…in my opinion the Aints will crush us,..but who cares anymore,..we are used to losing,..just another game.

  • K-Rock

    Who do I start…

    Brees at home against Oakland?

    Warner at home against Dallas?

  • MR

    oh Man, Sarah Palin is guilty of abuse of power. That messes everything up.

  • Im sorry. for getting you in my mess.

  • MR

    K-rock, that oakglenn guy would give you a break down of matchups, but since I am now him, I guess I shoud do it. Go with Brees against the Raiders. First off I hate the Raiders and they haven’t done shi*. then Burgess is out, so Brees will have a field day against Dhall and the lame Raiders defense. they suck dude.

  • Maloso Madden

    I think Palin and McCain are going to pull it out. Tom Bradley effect. This country is as racist as it ever was, it’s just in the closet now as opposed to out in the open. And there’s nothing more in the closet than the voting booth.

    If you’re white and hanging out with a bunch of white guys, and they start making fun of blacks and Mexicans, and they always do, and you try to confront them on their racism, you might as well be a tree hugging loon. You’re not invited to the next outing. You’re ostracized. We’d have to be crazy to think that won’t play a factor at the voting booth.

    My prediction: McCain wins, market crashes, all out chaos ensues and martial law is enacted. I’m so sure of it I’m willing to bet on it. BTW, I think the same thing would happen if Obama wins. Seriously. This country is doomed to fail. Karma’s catching up with it. It’s not going to be mid east t-e-r-rorists or N. Kor-ea. It’s going to be us. We’re going to kill ourselves. The rest of the world is just going to watch, and eventually Ru-ssia, I-ran and N. Ko-rea will pick up the crumbs. You guys know this is going to happen. Deny it all you want. Goodnight.


    Saints 34, Raiders 10.

  • That must be lmn speaking stupidly like that.

  • Maloso Madden

    Kool Kell, you’re right. I was talking foolishly.

    It’ll really be Saints 34, Raiders 0.

  • joetoronto

    I wouldn’t play Mcfadden, there’s no need.

    They better stop screwing with this kids future, we all know how turf toe can linger.

    Remember C-Wood, he’s still getting it shot up after all these years.

    ﺗﻜﻮﻳﻦ 2

    1 وَهَكَذَا اكْتَمَلَتِ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالأَرْضُ بِكُلِّ مَا فِيهَا.

    2 وَفِي الْيَوْمِ السَّابِعِ أَتَمَّ اللهُ عَمَلَهُ الَّذِي قَامَ بِهِ، فَاسْتَرَاحَ فِيهِ مِنْ جَمِيعِ مَا عَمِلَهُ.

    3 وَبَارَكَ اللهُ الْيَوْمَ السَّابِعَ وَقَدَّسَهُ، لأَنَّهُ اسْتَرَاحَ فِيهِ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَعْمَالِ الْخَلْقِ

    4 هَذَا وَصْفٌ مَبْدَئِيٌّ لِلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ يَوْمَ خَلَقَهَا الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ.

    5 وَلَمْ يَكُنْ قَدْ نَبَتَ بَعْدُ فِي الأَرْضِ شَجَرٌ بَرِّيٌّ وَلاَ عُشْبٌ بَرِّيٌّ، لأَنَّ الرَّبَّ الإِلَهَ لَمْ يَكُنْ قَدْ أَرْسَلَ مَطَراً عَلَى الأَرْضِ، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ هُنَاكَ إِنْسَانٌ لِيَفْلَحَهَا،

    6 إلاَّ أَنَّ ضَبَاباً كَانَ يَتَصَاعَدُ مِنَ الأَرْضِ فَيَسْقِي سَطْحَهَا كُلَّهُ.

    7 ثُمَّ جَبَلَ الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ آدَمَ مِنْ تُرَابِ الأَرْضِ وَنَفَخَ فِي أَنْفِهِ نَسَمَةَ حَيَاةٍ، فَصَارَ آدَمُ نَفْساً حَيَّةً.

    8 وَأَقَامَ الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ جَنَّةً فِي شَرْقِيِّ عَدْنٍ وَوَضَعَ فِيهَا آدَمَ الَّذِي جَبَلَهُ.

    9 وَاستَنْبَتَ الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ مِنَ الأَرْضِ كُلَّ شَجَرَةٍ بَهِيَّةٍ لِلنَّظَرِ، وَلَذِيذَةٍ لِلأَكْلِ، وَغَرَسَ أَيْضاً شَجَرَةَ الْحَيَاةِ، وَشَجَرَةَ مَعْرِفَةِ الْخَيْرِ وَالشَّرِّ فِي وَسَطِ الْجَنَّةِ.

    10 وَكَانَ نَهْرٌ يَجْرِي فِي عَدْنٍ لِيَسْقِيَ الْجَنَّةَ، وَمَا يَلْبَثُ أَنْ يَنْقَسِمَ مِنْ هُنَاكَ إِلَى أَرْبَعَةِ أَنْهُرٍ:

    11 الأَوَّلُ مِنْهَا يُدْعَى فِيشُونَ، الَّذِي يَلْتَفُّ حَوْلَ كُلِّ الْحَوِيلَةِ حَيْثُ يُوْجَدُ الذَّهَبُ.

    12 وَذَهَبُ تِلْكَ الأَرْضِ جَيِّدٌ، وَفِيهَا أَيْضاً الْمُقْلُ وَحَجَرُ الْجَزْعِ.

    13 وَالنَّهْرُ الثَّانِي يُدْعَى جِيحُونَ الَّذِي يُحِيطُ بِجَمِيعِ أَرْضِ كُوشٍ.

    14 وَالنَّهْرُ الثَّالِثُ يُدْعَى حِدَّاقِلَ وَهُوَ الْجَارِي فِي شَرْقِيِّ أَشُّورَ. وَالنَّهْرُ الرَّابِعُ هُوَ الْفُرَاتُ.

    15 وَأَخَذَ الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ آدَمَ وَوَضَعَهُ فِي جَنَّةِ عَدْنٍ لِيَفْلَحَهَا وَيَعْتَنِيَ بِهَا.

    16 وَأَمَرَ الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ آدَمَ قَائِلا: «كُلْ مَا تَشَاءُ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَشْجَارِ الْجَنَّةِ،

    17 وَلَكِنْ إِيَّاكَ أَنْ تَأْكُلَ مِنْ شَجَرَةِ مَعْرِفَةِ الْخَيْرِ وَالشَّرِّ لأَنَّكَ حِينَ تَأْكُلُ مِنْهَا حَتْماً تَمُوت».

    18 ثُمَّ قَالَ الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ: «لَيْسَ مُسْتَحْسَناً أَنْ يَبْقَى آدَمُ وَحِيداً. سَأَصْنَعُ لَهُ مُعِيناً مُشَابِهاً لَهُ».

    19 وَكَانَ الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ قَدْ جَبَلَ مِنَ التُّرَابِ كُلَّ وُحُوشِ الْبَرِّيَّةِ وَطُيُورِ الْفَضَاءِ وَأَحْضَرَهَا إِلَى آدَمَ لِيَرَى بِأَيِّ أَسْمَاءٍ يَدْعُوهَا، فَصَارَ كُلُّ اسْمٍ أَطْلَقَهُ آدَمُ عَلَى كُلِّ مَخْلُوقٍ حَيٍّ اسْماً لَهُ.

    20 وَهَكَذَا أَطْلَقَ آدَمُ أَسْمَاءً عَلَى كُلِّ الطُّيُورِ وَالْحَيَوَانَاتِ وَالْبَهَائِمِ. غَيْرَ أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَجِدْ لِنَفْسِهِ مُعِيناً مُشَابِهاً لَهُ.

    21 فَأَوْقَعَ الرَّبُّ الإِلَهُ آدَمَ فِي نَوْمٍ عَمِيقٍ، ثُمَّ تَنَاوَلَ ضِلْعاً مِنْ أَضْلاَعِهِ وَسَدَّ مَكَانَهَا بِاللَّحْمِ،

    22 وَعَمِلَ مِنْ هَذِهِ الضِّلْعِ امْرَأَةً أَحْضَرَهَا إِلَى آدَمَ.

    23 فَقَالَ آدَمُ: «هَذِهِ الآنَ عَظْمٌ مِنْ عِظَامِي وَلَحْمٌ مِنْ لَحْمِي. فَهِيَ تُدْعَى امْرَأَةً لأَنَّهَا مِنِ امْرِيءٍ أُخِذَتْ».

    24 لِهَذَا، فَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ يَتْرُكُ أَبَاهُ وَأُمَّهُ وَيَلْتَصِقُ بِامْرَأَتِهِ، وَيَصِيرَانِ جَسَداً وَاحِداً.

    25 وَكَانَ آدَمُ وَامْرَأَتُهُ عُرْيَانَيْنِ، وَلَمْ يَعْتَرِهُمَا الْخَجَلُ.
