Joseph absent, practice squad forming

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, September 6th, 2009 at 1:19 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Defensive tackle William Joseph was not present for stretching and preliminary drill work with the defensive line, indicating he may be the victim following the trade for the Patriots Richard Seymour.

The Raiders have not announced any transactions, either on their Web page or through their Twitter account.

Among the players who appear to have resurfaced in the practice squad include linebacker Slade Norris, a fourth-round pick. Also back are defensive end Greyson Gunheim, wide receiver Jonathan Holland, linebacker David Nixon and safety Jerome Boyd.

There was also a No. 45 who may or may not be fullback Marcel Reece.

Injured players who were not present as practice began included linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba, wide receiver Chaz Schilens and running back Justin Fargas.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was practicing with his left wrist in a soft cast, Kirk Morrison with his left elbow in a brace. Also on the field were strong safety Mike Mitchell and tackle Khalif Barnes.

Punter Shane Lechler, who missed the final preseason game with a groin strain, was taking part in kicking drills.

    The journalist are jokes …already claiming it’ll be a top 10 pick for Seymour and the Pattsies got the better end of the deal …let the thing play itself out.

    Somehow I doubt if they got the better end of the stick. This journalist on NFLN claimed the Pattsies already “fortified” their Dline with Burgess – yeah, he said that …don’t laugh because he was serious …I mean really Burgess better than Seymour ..are you freakin’ kiddin me!

    The Raiders just replaced Burgess with 2 probowlers that are better than Burgess!

    With the talent on offense this team can go places in 2010. Odds are the pick will be after 15, well after.

    Brein,

    What makes you so sure Fargas wont start? You must be giving Cable enough credit that he will make the “right” decision.
    **********************

    At least you know not starting Farglass is a right move. Cable doesnt seem like the brightest guy but how bright do you need to be to know Farglass should never start? Well let me stop I just asked a person who lacks any football knowledge a serious question

    Al needs to find that extra cash he has stashed in one of his Rascals to hook Seymour up for 3 years…

  • doriangray

  • doriangray

  • Dude

    Who did Cable start ALL last year? Who started the first 2 preseason games?

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    Good deal. But…….Will he just be another player who comes here from a winning organization, and smells the fish, and says that’s odd?

  • priesttj

    Doriangray, have you ever heard the saying “talk is cheap” They can say whatever they chose because they don’t have to play us. Starting Sept 14th the talking stops ad the playing starts. They can’t help the other team win or lose. They can only talk.

    The Raiders must start playing with a sense of team and urgency and the winning will follow.

  • jhill

    Well so much for the Trevor Scott debate. Back to the situational role that you played so well.

    Surprised they cut Joseph instead of Richardson since Seymour is playing DE.

    WE already know Farglass started all last year and did nada. But alot of that had to do with Dmac not being 100 pct.

    You are embarrassing yourself DMAC started the SF game. Just stop man

  • jhill

    LOL at the players pointing to an upgrade at RDE solving the run problems.

  • Brien the General

  • http://raidermight.com RaiderMight

    No dirt to report, so he is going to take his time. :) My guess is 5:30pm for the fix.
