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.

    just better than JR is good enuf for me.

    ………….

    Just better than JR?

    He’s better than Montana, Unitas, and Marino!*

    *based on high school stats

  • aig

    huff baby!!!!!!

  • aig

    we need a draw play on those blitzes badly

  • Midwest Fan

    we’re rotating in a lot of players in there already. Saw Bryant in at dt along with scott at de. Mitchell’s been in at s. I like it.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Have no fear, AIG. We’ve got a QB better than Unitas, Montana, and Marino!*

    *based on high school stats

  • aig

    agreed Midwest.

  • aig

    wow Fargas is running them over big time.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Cable looks cool in that Raiders’ jacket. It’s a nice fit. Gives him enough arm room to hit women about 2 feet shorter than him. I’m sure he had it tailored with that in mind.

  • priesttj

    AIG, way better than Russell so far huh?? you must be NUTS!!

  • aig

    how many 3 and outs priest so far? even with all that pressure.

  • priesttj

    Midwest, They’ve been doing that all year long.

  • aig

    priest happy thanks giving to you too….i’m thankful we’re not playing JR today.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    priest, not only is Mike Gradkowski better than Russell, he’s better than Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana, and Dan Marino…based on high school stats. AIG dug that up and presented us with the facts a couple of threads ago. I have nothing bad to say about Mike Gradkowski, now.

  • priesttj

    Don’t gorget we’re watching the great Gradkowski, the next Gannon.

  • priesttj

    *forget

  • aig

    compared to Gannon he’s not great….compared to JR, GRad is DA MAN!!!!!

  • priesttj

    This defense looks like last weeks defense they just got started earlier.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Oh, I haven’t forgotten, priest. I mean, I genuinely see someone better than Montana, Unitas, and Marino.* Mike Gradkowski could take us to the SB this year.

    *based on high school stats.

  • Raiders4eve

    We need 2 score now, run with fargas

  • priesttj

    Yeah uh huh!! we’ll see seince he has the same players. he should do much better what’s his stats so far smart guy?

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    We’ve got high school stats, if you need those, priest!

  • Raiders4eve

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Anyone? High school stats? Mike gradkowski?

  • aig

    Wow, NewRaiderFan,

    You did have the new inside scoop. Howard was benched today and Scott started per greg papa.

  • priesttj

    He dinks and dunks extremely well doesn’t he?

  • aig

    Hey priest,

    Grad has 7.5 more games to throw 1 more td to better JR. I mean he already tied him after 1 game. I can sleep well with that.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    I’m taking my JR jersey back to the Raider Imagine, having “Russell” replaced with “Gradkowski”, and putting that sucker on ebay. He’s got better high school stats than Joe Montana, Johnny Unitas, and Dan Marino! I could quit my job.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Gradkowski looked a lot like Unitas on that pass, AIG.

  • raiderlifer24

    hey nation hows it going lets and real madden raider why are you in here you are not a real raider fan

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    What are Mike Gradkowski’s stats today?

  • priesttj

    WOW, that was a great passs if Schilens didn’t stop the int, we’d be down 7 to zip!!

    The great Gradkowski!! LIVES!!

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Raiderlifer24, have your mom retype that so I can understand it.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    preist, I think Gradkowski did look like Marino on that pass.

  • aig

    yeah i know at least he threw in front of him and allowed Chaz to fight for it. I mean he could have thrown it at his feet (Meyers) or behind him (watkins)

  • Raiders4eve

    ………….

    LOL. How long have you followed the Raiders? The Raiders don’t run the ball.

  • raiderlifer24

    you no what i meant GET OUT real raider fans only

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Gradkowski really did look like a combination of Marino, Unitas, and Montana on that 3rd down pass.

  • Raiders4eve

    Damn why we give up big runs

  • Midwest Fan

    Keep it up Huff.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Raiderlifer24, are there any grown ups in your house who can type your comments for you? I just can’t understand what you’re saying.

  • Raiders4eve

    Scott is playing slb

  • aig

    int

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Unitas time!

  • aig

    bush and howard benched today. wow. Marshal must have been real mad at howard.

  • raiderlifer24

    good defensive stand kept composure after giving up the big play now the offense needs to respond with some points

  • priesttj

    Listen , I will cease and desist from my criticism of Grads because i want to win this game in the worst way but I just wanted to make a point about a coach who threw someone under the bus to save face. It aint coool………………period

  • Midwest Fan

    That was a great openfield tackle by scott.

  • Raiders4eve

    Be back time 4 another kool aid

  • Midwest Fan

    I agree to some extent priest. Although, one of your above points about players being available. Russell did have gallery and green the 1st few games. Schillens is the one exception.
