Alston to IR; Norris promoted

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, November 26th, 2009 at 12:28 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Linebacker Jon Alston was placed on injured reserve after missing last week’s game with residual symptoms from a concussion, with rookie fourth-round pick Slade Norris taking his place on the roster.

Norris is inactive for today’s game against Dallas, as is David Nixon, the linebacker who was promoted from the practice squad last week. Both are sitting because Isaiah Ekejuiba, who did not practice because of an ankle injury during the week is active and will play.

Also inactive are linemen Erik Pears and Khalif Barnes and wide receivers Javon Walker, Nick Miller and Todd Watkins. Charlie Frye is the third quarterback.

In another transaction, John Bowie, the fourth-round draft pick from the Randy Moss deal, was waived off injured reserve and is free to sign with another team.

    Say, did you guys know that Gradkowski is better than Montana, Unitas, and Marino, based on high school stats? I find that incredibly awesome!

  • 4evaRaider

    good news slade norris

  • aig

    Mr.
    You dont get the point I was making. Here’s the point I was making. He had great numbers in highschool (such as having better stats than Jonny U, Marino, and other greats from his area). Great numbers in college (such as 28td vs 4int). That means he knows and understand football IQ, which is a whole lot more than the guy you worship JR. JR had 1 good season in college and has never shown to display any football IQ. other than your excuses of playcalling. Wow, didnt they do the same playcalling against SD? Did we win?

    Being this is Thanksgiving,I will refrain from being so negative on you. Eat your buffet bro.

    Good luck Raiders!!!

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Heck yeh he has a football IQ! He’s better than Marino, Unitas, and Montana*!

    And you never answered my question, AIG. What were Russell’s high school stats? You dug up Montana’s, Unitas’s, Marino’s, and even some guy named Mark Gradkowski’s. Surely you can find Russells stats and compare and contrast. As long as we’re talking high school stats… yes…high school stats. LOL

  • 4evaRaider

    well we dont have john bowie 2 kick around anymore.yep dump all garbage remnents start clean…start new…its never2late

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    I’ll bet you Russell’s high school stats trump all of them! LOL. So, according to your standard of high school stats having any kind of relevance in the NFL, Russell should be starting if his HS stats are better than Gradkowski’s, right? I mean, Gradkowski is btter than Montana, Unitas, and Marino….in high school. You are a stat wiz for finding that out.

  • newraidersfan

    Mark my words, Trevor Scott will start at Weakside Linebacker

  • aig

    Mr.

    You can whine all you want. You can twist anything you want. You cannot hide the fact that he did have better numbers than those guys in highschool. I NEVER SAID HE WAS BETTER THAN THEM in college or as a pro. But then again, beign that you are you. Have a ball with it bro. We know you love to be the whipping boy on here. All you can eat man. All you can eat.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Gradkowski has better pop warner stats than Peyton Manning. Look out, NFL!

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    AIG, I’m not making fun of you! I agree with you. I am hyped about this revelation of yours, that Gradkowski is in fact a better QB than Marino, Unitas, and Montana*. This is awesome.

    *based on high school stats

  • aig

    Why would I want to look up JR’s stat? You love him. You do it. All you can eat man.

  • aig

    Why is slade inactive and Nixon inactive? That means Sam Williams is SLB today? wow.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    I wonder how much preparation the Cowboys have needed the past few days to get their defense ready for a QB who’s better than Marino, Unitas, and Montana*? Probably a lot.

    *based on high school stats

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    AIG, you already looked up Unitas’s high school stats, Montana’s high school stats, Marino’s high school stats, and even a guy who will be out of the league in a year, Gradkowski’s high school stats. And you haven’t the time to look up Russells? I just want to know what they are. I mean, if Gradkowski having good HS stats proves that he has an NFL IQ (according to your standard), then if Russell’s HS stats are better, wouldn’t that mean that Russell has a better NFL IQ than Gradkowski? We’re going with your standard here.

    mr.

    I know it pains you that we won last week with Grad at the QB. I know it hurts bro.

    Odds of us winning again is low. BUT we may just get lucky again and I’ll apologize ahead of time if we do win again…not.

  • aig

    Mr.

    Does it pain you to see JR riding the pine?

  • newraidersfan

    T Scott = starting linebacker

  • aig

    TEx,

    that is rediculous amount of money for 1 game. wow. I have always thought fb is better watched at home with friends or at a bar. Things happen too fast at the game.

  • aig

    New,

    do you have inside scoop?

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    AIG, I’m perfectly happy with JR riding the pine, especially now that I know we have a QB better than Joe Montana, Johnny Unitas, and Dan Marino!* You have no idea how confident that makes me as a fan!

    *based on high school stats. See AIG’s scientific study from a couple of threads ago.

    Let’s go Raiders! Bring it home :D

    Jerry Jones is taking those dumb Texans to the cleaners. No doubt. If they’re willing to spend it.

  • priesttj

    I’m sorry I’m having some serious issues with our guy Cable, for the last mnth he’s been harping on the fact that we’ll soon get fully healthy and that will help us tremendously.

    Well I’m listening to this guy right now on the pre-game show and he totally contradicted himself. He says that Grads had the same players Russell had and the same scheme and got different results.

    Now I’m not in any way defending Russell that is not my point here. It’s Tom Cable’s double talk. He has said many times he can’;t wait to get this team healthy with Gallery Green and Chaz on offense that it would make all the difference in the world . Now he’s saying just the opposite. That it made NO difference. Which is it??

    Either they did or they didn’t. Having Chaz in this offense made a huge difference…….period The additions on the line made a huge difference clearly.
    Having DMC and Fargas healthy has made a differnce. But NOW he wants to make a case for Grads so he says they both had the SAME players and come away with different results.

    We all have our opinions about Russell, no problem but the coach needs to stop this crap. Chaz Schilens is so far above those two rookies it’s ridiculous. And Having Gallery back is HUGE as well as Green remarkably. I said it all season that Russell’s struggling were enhanced by way of the two rookies. Hey-Bey cst us the KC game with those drops. If that’s Chaz we win and I know Grads was the QB. But my pint is the same.

    Those players make a huge difference, Chaz Schilens is a huge target for any QB and he goes up and attacks the ball instead of wait for it to be picked off.

    Cable is full of it………..period
