Thursday, October 15th, 2009 at 1:15 pm in Oakland Raiders.
Let’s dispense for the moment with Commitment to Excellence, Pride and Poise and Team of the Decades.
As the Raiders broke their special teams huddle, their enthusiastic group chant was, “1-2-3, get better!”
More realistic, to be sure.
Wide receiver Chaz Schilens was on the field for his second straight day of practice, apparently showing no ill effects from practicing Wednesday.
Left guard Robert Gallery, however, was not on the field, a pretty clear indication he won’t be playing this week as the team game plans for the myriad blitzes of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fullback Luke Lawton was also absent, leaving fullback duties to Gary Russell with tight end Brandon Myers also available.
More to come following practice after Tom Cable’s press briefing . . .
