Schilens breaks bone in foot

At some point, the Tom Cable/Randy Hanson story will recede into the background, at which time Chaz Schilens will likely still be a in a cast, recovering from a broken foot.

Schilens said he broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot early in Tuesday’s joint practice against the San Francisco 49ers, injured while simply running a pass route and receiving no contact. He made his way to the fieldhouse afterward, jumping on his right foot.

“They told me my fifth metatarsal broke, so that’s it,” Schilens said.

Since camp opened, probably no Raiders player has put as many good practices together as Schilens. He had become a go-to target for JaMarcus Russell, catching five passes for 52 yards in a little more than a qurater of the opening preseason game and drawing a 47-yard interference penalty.

Schilens made his way from the field house toward the hotel on crutches, his left boot in a foot, stopping for a moment to talk with reporters.

“It’s just a sharp pain,” Schilens said. “Couldn’t run any more so I knew something was wrong. It is what it is.”

Schilens didn’t know how long he would be out, but it means the Raiders will be hoping Javon Walker’s progress with the training staff while on the PUP list is no mirage. Walker is scheduled to return to practice Monday following the 49ers game.

In other news, coach Tom Cable declined to answer questions about the Randy Hanson incident, although when asked directly if “nothing happened,” as was reported on ESPN, Cable repeated, “nothing happened.”

More to come later . . .

For some practice highlights (I mostly watched the Raiders defense vs. the 49ers offense during the morning session) check my Twitter page.

    i wonder if cable punched chaz in the foot???????

  • RaiderRockstar

    MR: so you call somebody names with no reasoning behind it whatsoever? what does that do for you?

    It doesn’t impress the ladies or gain you many friendships. not productive in the workplace either.

    I’m guessing you act this way online and completely the opposite in the real world. congrats on the multiple personalities & lifestyles. I guess thats your way to cope with loniless & boredom

    Before the season is over:

    1. Murphy…the next Tim Brown
    2. Walker…his last chance at football greatness
    3. JLH…all heart to go with that speed
    4. N. Miller. A.K.A Wes Welker
    5. DHB. I mean Rickey Dudley
    6. Chazz…will contribute something but a lot less than we had hoped for.

    RR on Baker:

    I think we were bummed because of how he started looking good at the end there, then he’s the first one gone. Then? We draft a SS in round 2. Not sad any more.

    RockStar, relax, would you? You’re not going to let this gay thing go, and if people think you’re gay, that’s probably why. The first sign that someone might be gay is if they’re going overboard trying to explain that they’re not. Explaining yourself gives credibility to the accusation. Just say you’re not gay and get on with it, fa66ot.

    Any update on Mike Mitchell’s injury?

    we need Gibson #36 back in the lineup asap!

    he’s a rookie and he has already missed too much time to start Week 1.

    Brien, the practice session against SF went great. We looked like Super Bowl contenders. We kept our first string in against the Niners’ 3rd string, and looked awesome. There’s your update.

    (I have been a big fan of JLH, but the dude has no brain to go with that heart, lol…watch him run straight out of bounds again or field a punt at the 2, lol…guess you have to take the good with the bad sometimes…once he gets it together, the dude might be special)

    you fellers have a great evening!

  • RaiderRobG

    I agree, at times JLH would drive me batty! Well, even Tim Brown had to carry the water for his not so gifted fellow wide outs. But I think, in Murphy you’ve got a guy like Brown who’s going to be in the right place at the right time and actually catch the football. For every Tim Brown you have your James Jetts.

    I’ll keep saying this, Murphy is going to make us think of what might have been at number seven.

    Now the kool aid drinkers have a scapegoat for an inevitable, atrocious start this season. “We didn’t have Shillens. We didn’t have Shillens”.

    BTW, Jim Rome just killed Al Davis. Great impersonation.

RaiderRockStar and Raider O are cool names for gay Raider fans, btw. RaiderRockStar, as in Freddy Mecury? You go girl. And Raider O…I think we know what the O represents.

    SNB666, it’s not Freddy’s music I’m making fun of. I’m making the association between him being a gay rock star, and our own gay Raider Rock Star.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    AZ Raider, you said nobody responded to my Cable comments, when in fact, you, Brien, and DKnight all responded. And why not? It’s an important Raider story, and this is a Raider blog. You don’t decide the topics here. You’re not a moderator. So my Cable comments are fair game. Don’t like it, scroll on, whiner.

    Oh, and don’t say “fuckstick”. Raider O gets turned on.

  • rodsdays

    I am so bummed right now. I truly feel sad.

    I apreciate all u optimistic fans. I always try and look at the positive things but this one is kind of tough.

    We really needed Chaz in the line-up, he was building great chemistry with JR and looked bound for a great season. Zmiller n Chaz with good chemistry with a JR… Not many teams have that… a Qb, Wr/Te chemistry…and the ones that do are very respectable offenses.

    We can always hope for somebody else steppin in or takin their game to a higher level (which we often do) well Chaz was doing that already now we have to hope for another wr to do the same… I know theres talent but that’s always a coin flip. Our coin seemed to have flipped our way with chaz… now we need another coin flip and this one feels a bit more one sided than the other.

    I read this blog daily. I seldom write, but I truly had to speak out this time. Especially livin in a san diego Charger infested area and whoever I try to break out to will just laugh and say it´s a good thing.

    We need Chaz, and yes I will still keep an optimistic outlook on the season.. after all…someone can always step up there game.

    p.s. Don’t worry no silver n black tears came out of my eyes… that´s only what runs through my veins.

    It’s time for our young WR’S to step up now..DHB.

  • chucka1122

    Hope DHB can catch the ball, we are going to need him now more than ever. That will give some of the other wideouts a chance to make the team. Hpefully it is not to serious. Shilens was having the best camp of anyone.

    Go Raiders!!!! Not happy about the injury!!!!
