Frye to start


Raiders coach Tom Cable said Charlie Frye had cleared all tests relative to his concussion and is line to start “as of today” against Cleveland Sunday.

Frye practiced without limitations. Cable said Bruce Gradkowski, who did not practice Thursday, was improving rapidly but still “doubtful” to be available.

Players must be symptom-free to practice and play, meaning if Frye were to have a reoccurence of headaches before Sunday, he would be out. He declined to speak to reporters coming off the field, saying he was scheduled to talk Thursday _ which is usually the day the Raiders starting quarterback speaks.

Tight end Zach Miller was also on the field, having passed his tests, and was limited in practice.

More to come . . .

    Let’s go Frye!!! Thank God we do not have to sit through another game with JaBust. He may have to come in if Frye goes down, but hopefully JaBust’s days are coming to an end in Oakland. The guy is absolutely brutal, no desire, no passion, terrible accuracy, and that is just a few of his shortcomings.
    Next to go will be DHB, a huge draft blunder again by the Raider organization. The biggest reason why we have not made the playoffs in 7 seasons is because of our horrendous drafts. The Raiders seem to do well in the later rounds, but just cannot seem to get the first couple of picks right. How much have the Raiders first 2 picks contributed to the team this season? DHB has no hands, he is a track guy in a football uniform. I have said this since the day we drafted him, and he has proven me correct time and time again. Maybe his foot injury will keep him out all of next season so we can actually watch guys who know how to catch a football.

    Lets get this win against the Browns. Lets move forward and address the 0-line and D-line in the offseason. Go Raiders!!!

    P.S. Al get rid of the dead weight on this team, especially JaBust and DHB!!!
