Chaz still a no go

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, October 29th, 2009 at 1:18 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Wide receiver Chaz Schilens remained a spectator during warmups and drills Thursday, watching as a bystander as the other wideouts went through the paces.

Robert Gallery was suited up for the second straight day, although it remains to be seen if he’s a realistic option to play Sunday.

Back from the stomach issue which has affected a few players was linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba, but backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski missed his second day of practice. It leaves open the possiibility that Charlie Frye could be the backup for JaMarcus Russell Sunday in San Diego.

Hiram Eugene was sharing kickoff return duties with Jonathan Holland.

During the open locker room session receiver/return specialist Nick Miller expressed optimism he could return after the bye. Miller also said he hasn’t come close to anything approximating a full-on sprint, making his availability in two weeks suspect.

More to come from interview sessions and Tom Cable’s post-practice press briefing later . . .

    Just get Cable to “stick a cattle prod up his azz” and Chaz will be ready to go Sunday.

  • Brien the Grand Guru

    Hahahahahahahahahaha ok another sub par performance from Russell and the excuse will be Chaz wasnt playing. Chaz is talented when healthy but he cant stay healthy and cant play hurt. Forget about him now. Let him go to another team so he can flourish. Dmac as well. Two talented guys that will never have success in Oakland

    Told you guys…bad injury and would take a lot longer to heal than the Raiders were letting on.

  • SaintKaufman

    Wow!
    Doesn’t the bell EVER ring to let out the 3rd graders in here?? How do grown adults get so much enjoyment out of acting like little kids?? Don’t you guys ever get embarrassed by all of this, or at the least bored with it??
    All of this immaturity for a football team?? Really?? The barrel really goes that far down?? I just don’t get it. Whatever, charade on.

    Go Raiders!!

    Look, the owner and personell is what it is. You are not going to go out and find a QB solution on the street. Russell hasn’t proven to be the answer but Gradkowski and Frye are not the answer either. At least not to the question I’m asking. Gradkowski and Frye are not the 3rd youngest QBs in the league, so we already know what they bring. NOTHING! They are NOT QBs who will win any more games than #2 because the ENTIRE TEAM sucks.

    B, are sure the sidelines wasn’t rolling their eyes at Barnes for getting pancaked? Awwww here we go with this BS from the Oline again! Sure that wasn’t it?

    Sure they were rolling there eyes at the playcall? We’re on the 4 yd line and he calls that BS? Didn’t he learn from the Denver game?

    Like someone else said, blaming Russell is like blaming the waitress for your bad meal. What about the cook and the manager?

    We all know what we have at QB and the WR position, and the fact that Cable and/or Al keep forcing 4 vertical routes on us despite the fact they no better is the meat and potatoes of it, IMO.

    I really can’t get pass that to start bashing the players.

    Attitude reflects leadership Jhill. Russell aint a leader. He is a loser and the whole team knows it thats why they dont give a damn.

    I completely agree 100% but here’s the problem … How much does JaMarcus make and how much does Gradkowski/ Frye make? Redo JaMarcus contract … he should be paid the lowest QB salary in the league.
