Miller returns, Bowie to IR

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, September 30th, 2009 at 11:40 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders placed defensive back John Bowie on injured reserve to make room for Justin Miller, who will return kickoffs Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Guard Brandon Rodd was added to the practice squad. Although Louis Rankin has a locker with a name plate and is still full of equipment,, the running back was signed to the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks.

More to come later . . .

    Welcome back, Justin!

  • 4evaRaider

    from last post that is =)

  • Ryan

    That’s ok, 4eva. I feel you are on the virge of turning the corner, as well.

  • LA to TheBay

    We just can’t shake Bowie, can we?

    I think he needs to live with Nnamdi for a while, maybe he can flourish many seasons down the road.

    Like someone else said, Gannon should be Russell’s QB/Life coach and keep the cheeseburger out of his mouth. Whoever that was, priceless.

    Jerry…

  • Ryan

    I hope one of my fantasy leagues in on the bring of getting this thing going, as well.

    Wow looks like the Seahawks will get a new running back soon. I would not be surprised if Rankin went on to become the next Alexander running the ball.

  • No More Infield or Trolls

    See ya legend. You’re not a real fan anyway… don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out…

  • CJ Legend 34

    LMAO the sad part is I understand his pain. Don’t do it legend it is not worth it “DON”T JUMP!!!!” and become a Broncos fan.

  • Ryan

    Houston is number 32 against the run. I expect big things from DMAC, Bush, and/or Fargas this week.

  • LA to TheBay

    Ryan,

    If ever there was a time for our running game to explode, it’s Sunday.

  • CJ Legend 34

    Ryan,

    The only time I feel good about this team is visualizing success with dreamers like you.
    Thanks man! No back to reality. This team sucks…..

    Don’t expect much Sunday.

    Gus,

    Nah, we released him from the 53 man roster to promote Holland to return kicks instead.

    He had to clear waivers, and Seattle most likely beat us to the punch. He’s a U Dub guy, so it makes sense. No reason we can’t get him back if he gets cut again, I don’t think.

    We put Bowie on IR to get J. Miller to return kicks.

    Rodd was on the practice squad last year too…

    Bowie to IR? no !!!

    he was “on the brink of turning things around” right Tom Cable ? huge loss. 4 wins is no longer possible

    is it a reach to take Taylor Mays #1 overall ???

  • 4evaRaider

    WAS HE MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ryan

    DMAC 26 carries 243 yrds
    Bush 12 carries 76 yrds
    Fargas 5 carries 23 yrds
    Russell 11-18 for 115 yrds

    The Raiders finally get a 400 yrd game.

    Raiders 38, Texans 24

    (Then I woke up)

    I wish Dan Marino would mentor JaMarcus.

    get JaWalrus on NutriSystem!

    “is it a reach to take Taylor Mays #1 overall ???”

    I don’t think we’ll be trading up with KC.

    Yeah and my wife reminds me of Megan Foxx

  • DMAC

    We need to draft Sam Bradford.

  • DMAC

    Welcome back Miller, as long as you don’t line up as a DB.

  • http://i41.tinypic.com/eb53t3.jpg Lynn from Snot

    We need to stop drafting PERIOD!!!!!!!

  • LA to TheBay

    Lol, another gem from Lynn.

  • DMAC

    Let’s look at reality!

    Gunna22 – this an english speking blog. no one is going to attempt to read your posts, much lees respond, if you use all caps and made up words…

  • LA to TheBay

    DMAC

    I’d rather see us use one of the Burgess picks on a QB as an insurance policy.

    Late round pick, no problem. Another top 10 QB commanding top 10 dollars and top 10 playing time?

    We won’t cut ties with Russell for some time, IMO.

  • raiderkoolaid

    Any team can sign any player off another teams practice squad at any time as long as they add that player to their active roster.

  • LA to TheBay

    Isn’t Rankin like a foot taller than Jones Drew?

    ==================================================

    That’s exactly right. So you all might as well relax give this guy some support and watch him develop. It’s the best option for all of us right now.

  • DMAC

    Were we really terrible last week or is Dever a solid team??????????

  • ctoakraiderfan

    It does not make a difference if we signed miller or not, yeah he might break free for a touch down her and there but the bottom line is we need our OFFENSE to produce. Dumbmarcus (Bag O Doughnuts) Russell is no the answer, never will be. He is a box of rocks with no leadership skills and that is going to get us nowhere but a top five pick again. That being said we should throw in Gradowski, or Frye, at least they will manage the game better. I really think we have a decent team, We just need a QB who can manage our offense. Thank god I am working sunday so i wont have a chance to see the raiders fall on there face again, as long as Russell is the QB we will suck

  • raiderkoolaid

    2010 is going to be an uncapped year so it will be a great time to get rid of players without having to worry about it destroying the salary cap.

  • DMAC

    Could it be that DMAC is underperforming, because of that turf toe last year? He’s still wearing those Nikes and I do recall him wearing Addidas in college.

  • raiderkoolaid

    One thing about Tebow, the team that gets him will not have to worry about his work ethic. I don’t know if he will make a good NFL quarterback, but he is intelligent and he will work hard.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I’d rather see us use one of the Burgess picks on a QB as an insurance policy.

    Late round pick, no problem

    ***

    Tim Tebow?

  • No More Infield or Trolls

    All draft picks next year need to be used on linemen on both sides (OC, OG, OT DT and LB’s). We are set at saftey, CB, RB, TE and WR for next year. A GOOD young, smart QB would be nice also. Will any of this happen. More than likley the answer is no…
