Gallery may be out until after bye

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, October 19th, 2009 at 1:21 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Left guard Robert Gallery is facing the reality he won’t be ready to face the New York Jets and hopes to face the San Diego Chargers the following week.

Factoring in the an athlete’s natural tendency to think he’ll be back sooner than is realisitc, it’s looking like Gallery will probably be out until the Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 15.

“I think the bye definitely, that period would definitely help, but I don’t think it’s out of the question before, either,” Gallery said. “We’ll know next week. If I can make the same progress I did this week, and it’s about feeling good and I can go out and be effective, and be able to do all the things I need to do.”

Gallery, who broke his left fibula against the Chiefs in Week 2, is doing drillwork on the field and his leg is supporting his body weight. He said he feels 10 to 15 percent better than he did last week. And while coach Tom Cable said he thought the surgical wounds to put in a protective plate was keeping his left guard on the sidelines, Gallery said it was the bone itself.

“It takes six weeks for a bone to heal,” Gallery said. “We’ll try and get back before then, but there’s not a lot more you can do.”

In the meantime, Gallery enjoyed his vantage point on the field for the 13-9 win over the Eagles, rather than sitting a private box drinking coffee and getting nervous.

“Winning kind of takes care of everything,” Gallery said. “It’s good to see. We did just enough on offense to pull that one out, and defense played great and won that game for us, along with Shane (Lechler) pretty much.

“We did what it took to win. It was a good win for us. It wasn’t real pretty, especially on offense, but a win’s a win.”

More to come following Tom Cable’s press briefing at 2 p.m. . . .

    At least draft a guy that wants to play here…

    Can you provide a link that says Crabtree didn’t want to play here?

    Like I said, Crabtree’s attitude sucks and he might not have been a good match with our “leadership.” He needs a coach like Singletary. This does not excuse the fact that we took DHB way too early. If you want him, at least trade down to get him. I’m sure there was someone who would have traded up to get Monroe ahead of Jacksonville.

    JB,

    You are going on the list for suggesting a position change for McFadden.
    ***************

    YES I AM. COUNT ME IN – IN SPADES.

    I really only want what is best for him & the team. I think he will excel as the slot receiver. Something I never see him doing as a RB. He’s just too fragile to be butting heads in there with the BIG UGLIES. Yes, DMac for Slot Receiver. All those in favor, please join me on Dakota’s list.

    BTW, if you will recall, you were saying DMac & I was saying Cedrick Ellis. Cedrick is doing fine in N.O. DMac will also do fine as soon as they switch his position. LOL

    KK, don’t you get it dumbell. Crabtree DIDN’T WANT TO COME HERE!!

    You don’t bring in a player who disrespects you’re franchise even before you draft him. Then your dumbas would be complaining about that. Because that’s all you know how to do is whine and cry. Shutup!!

    I see your having some who despise you again. What did you say now?

    Hey Dakota:

    You just don’t get it, do you man?

    I’m glad we drafted D-Mac. I think a lot of people are.

    That’s not the point.

    The point is that 80 yard runs do NOT define a successful running game. Yeah, the instant scoring ability is fantastic to have on your team, but, your bread & butter HAS to be those boring 3, 4, 5 yard runs. Good teams pound the ball throughout a football game to set up a successful passing game.

    I just do not believe that D-Mac brings that consistant between-the-tackles running, down after down.

    I love him on our team. But, I maintain that the majority of the pounding has to be comin’ from Fargas or Bush.

    Dell,

    I don’t know? I mean, I have been my usual bright and optimistic self today! You know, still hoping Cable gets fired and Al is institutionalized! And I didn’t even marginalize the victory too much!

    New post up by the way…

    One of the best parts of yesterday was watching the Eagles fans walking back to their cars with their tails between their legs.

    I think they all thought they were comin’ out to the Coliseum for a great time out yesterday.

    How did you like Phillips pocket awareness last night?

    He has to do a better job of feeling the pressure!!!

    JR is not the only QB that looks bad when his protections bad.

    Only difference is Phillips has veteran recievers that catch the ball.
