Status quo for Raiders’ injuries

There were no surprises for the Raiders’ Christmas Eve practice as they concluded warmups and drills and began practice.

Not present were quarterback Bruce Gradkowski (knees), running back Justin Fargas (knee), tight end Brandon Myers (concussion), wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and defensive end Greg Ellis (knee).

Ellis is likely to play, the rest will probably be inactive Sunday against the Browns.

More to come . . .

    I hope Charlie Frye goes off on the team that traded him after the first game and throws for 300+ yards.

    Shark, 4eva, great posts.
    =====================
    Oh geez…Shark posts “He looks like he cares and will work on his craft the offseason” and 4evadumb posts “absolutely, everyone will see”??? and to YOU those are “great posts”??

    Yeah, LMFAO at you.
    In other words, you’re dazzled by the simplest of words?

    The guy just got guaranteed 22 MILLION, and “looks like he cares and will work on his craft’???? WTF??
    Gosh..what would “working on his craft” be?
    have balls thrown to him? LIKE HE DID ALL YEAR?
    Drop balls and wonder “why do I have cement hands”? LIKE HE DID ALL YEAR..and like he did throughout college?

    You guys are idiots. No, that’s not smack..that’s a fact.

    Bey sucks. He should NEVER have been picked at #7, and when he went out “injured” HE WAS THE WORST STARTING WR IN THE LEAGUE..not “bad”..not “ways to go”..but the WORST.

    Hell, during training camp the team was reduced to having him run routes with NO ONE AROUND HIM..and he still couldn’t catch balls. Was a mock celebration from Jerry when he actually caught a few..WITH NO DEFENSE IN THE AREA..Bey is that bad.

    Hell, his TD he STILL MISSED..it went through his hands, and settled in his gut..even that reception was a fluke.

    See above regarding “YOU’RE AN IDIOT”

  • RaiderD

    Really your going to throw in the towel on DHB already?

    Merry Christmas Richochet

  • CaptainBlack

    Oh, I smell shyte. Ahhh, Richochet’s mouth is open. Or, maybe his mother is here.

  • RaiderD

    Happy Holidays to you 4eva!

  • RaiderD

    you too Cap!

  • Richochet

    Bey’s knock in college was dropping easy balls.

    Bey’s knock in college was bobbling easy balls.

    Bey was NOT a football player in college, he was a track star converted to football because he’s “fast”.

    What’s very obvious is you need speed, but when you can’t catch the ball, speed means nothing.

    Bey is a 22 million $ bust, and is there one single thing that indicates otherwise?

    Geez..it’s not like he’s EVER DONE IT, is it?

    He’s NEVER been more than mediocre IN COLLEGE..why is he all of a sudden expected to shine playing against pro’s?

  • CaptainBlack

    Richochet, you are so witty. What are you practicing on? Are you an inmate or student with too much time on your hands? Come on silly boy, share. Hey call me a poodle like you did MR. That was really cool.

  • CaptainBlack

    Thanks, D.

  • 4evaRaider

    You 2 RaiderD!!!!

  • CaptainBlack

    Come on Silly Ricky, post something truly smarmy and witty. You are so smart. We are impressed. Please, hurry.

  • RaiderD

    OK i can understand where your coming from, but catching the ball can definitely be worked on. and its probably safe to assume that his work ethic is better than JRuss’. so im going to hold off my judgment on DHB until he gets a QB that can throw him the ball accurately and gets another season under his belt.

    Typical response from a 12 year old. A ‘shyte” comment..and a “mother” comment.

    The repertoire of the weakest of the weak.

    Hey..it was YOUR dumbass who ran the “GREAT POSTS” about Bey.
    I detailed how ignorant you are.

    Now..had you had a lick of sense, or the tiniest indication of huevos, you would have backed your words.

    I knew from the start you couldn’t..you’re slow..borderline dense.
    You were done before you even started, moron.

  • CaptainBlack

    You called me a 12 year old again. Try another name, silly boy

  • CaptainBlack

    Come on, Ricky, something new! You have used the work of others too many times before. Be creative; be original. Such a silly boy.

  • RaiderD

    Where would the NFL be if every team gave up on a player after 1 year?

  • CaptainBlack

    Richo, you are a puppet. I post and you respond. Loser! Come on, byotch, new material.

  • Richochet

    RaiderD..sometimes you have to just bite the bullet. Unfortunately 22 million guaranteed means that instead of moving the chains, the team has to watch a guy short arm balls, or drop them, and then punt.

    Here’s what’s to worry about.

    Everyone gets nervous coming into the NFL, but at some point that goes away, and their skills and talent come out..usually.
    Except even in college Bey couldn’t catch the ball on a regular basis.
    And throughout the year, NFL receiving coaches worked on it with him…week after week, month after month..

    Not sure he has it in him.

    Jerry Rice struggled with dropped balls in his rookie year..but..as I recall reading he also had a 200 plus yd game against the Rams his rookie year…he just had to learn consistency.
    Bey hasn’t shown he’s even capable of catching routine balls..which makes the #7 pick even more suspect.

  • RaiderD

    I was watching that Browns vs Steelers game and it seems like Ryan doesnt drop off into the prevent defense as much as he did when he was with the raiders.

    It appears that Nick Miller will never see the playing field this year. What a waste of a valuable roster spot! I understand keeping him active the first few weeks of the season with hopes that he will get healthy, but with so many glaring needs, how the hell does this team not put Nick Miller on IR by week 6 let alone THE ENTIRE SEASON?!

  • CaptainBlack

    Richo doesn’t want to play. Come on, SILLY boy. Nobody will post to you, Ricky. I will. Come on, blogger tough guy.

  • RaiderD

    Yea but who did Jerry Rice have throwing the ball to him? the situation is a LITTLE different.

  • RaiderD

    and from a news article i was reading about DHB “hands” is one of the things the coaches were working with DHB to fix, and they also said he had good work ethic.

  • Richochet

    CaptainDumberThanCotton..thanks for proving my “12 year old” assumption is close.

    I just torched your idiot take, and all you can do is post back to back to back silly requests for me to continue to call you an idiot?

    Hell…you asked ‘Does anyone know how Monroe has done”?

    WHAT?? You don’t know? You can’t READ??

    In other words, yeah, you’re either a stupid kid, and an incredibly ignorant dumbass adult.

    Want the bad news?

    The ‘stupid kid’ has a chance of removing his head from his ass at some point..

    the “incredibly ignorant, dumbass adult”?? It is what it is, and in your case, stupid goes all the way to the bone.

    Now shut up, little boy.

  • CaptainBlack

    Jerry Rice had Lil Rickychet throwing to him. Ricky, something tells me you are an athlete. Tell us about you.

  • CaptainBlack

    Lil’ Ricky is getting upset! He proved his point? LOL! Come on, Lil Ricky, more. You are funny. You a tough guy poster. You gots mes goods. Isa gluton fow punishment. More, tough guy…You are impressive!

  • Richochet

    Yeah, Bey has good work ethic..but..by that token, Frye and Grad also have good work ethic.
    MANY NFL players who never get off the pine have great work ethic..try their hardest..study..long hours…rep after rep after rep..but doesn’t make up for the fact that someone else is just a little better, or a lot better.

    Give up on Bey?

    I would say put someone in there who’s shown they can do their job..don’t you agree?

    Not “team will lose as you learn your job” or “that was a td you dropped” but we’ll wait as you get better” situation. Let Bey EARN THE STARTING POSITION…earn it..show he can perform..JUST LIKE EVERY POSITION SHOULD BE…earned, not given because of your massive contract.

    See? LMFAO..not just a kid, but an ignorant kid.
    Geez..that’s almost as bad as an ignorant adult.
    Hey, moron..what’s “gots”? “mes”? “Isa”? “gluton”?? “FOW”??

    Freaking dumbass..try Hooked on Phonics, dude.

  • CaptainBlack

    Ricky, nobody wants to play with you. Use just a lil’ kid. But I will. Just don’t post mean things, or stomp your foot. Say something insightful, lil’Rick

  • RaiderD

    So then you also agree that it is too soon to give up on him. You want him to earn his position right? what better way than to work his ass off with a JUGS machine in the offseason and come into training camp a better player. he can only go up after this season.

  • RaiderD

    Mind you i was never totally convinced on DHB in the fist place, but i say we wait until we can get him a qb that can get him the ball. and a line that can protect that qb.

  • CaptainBlack

    I think lil Ricky has got a Jugs head! Lil Ricky Jugs head. LOLOLOLOLOL!

  • CaptainBlack

    I want more cut and paste from lil’ Rickychet.

  • CaptainBlack

    Come play, lil’ Ricky. We want you to write sompin rilly smart

  • CaptainBlack

    Lil Rick got his feelings hurt. Ok, I will take you seriously now. You a lil’ kid, but I will make nice with you. I like puzzy kids like you

  • RaiderD

    Alrite im off work see you fellas after our win against the Brown Stains!

  • Florida Pete

    the combine should be used to validate…

    not used to evaluate…

  • CaptainBlack

    Lil’ DickyRicky went away. Our gain!

  • 4evaRaider

    Have a GREAT Christmas D

  • CaptainBlack

    How many first years players can you name that were thought to be busts, but turned their careers around?

  • CaptainBlack

    FloridaPete, I’d wrap it in sandpaper for him

  • Richochet

    RaiderD..like I said, let him earn it.
    Not saying cut him, because honestly, can’t. He’s got the money coming, so he’s on the team for at least 3 years..but as a #7?
    Shouldn’t have to go and learn your craft when you’re #7.
    Not saying it’s Bey’s fault he got picked, just saying the bust label applies to the draft number, along with his inability to catch and hold onto the ball.

    Now..tell me this..IF BEY WAS A 7TH ROUND PICK, and gotten a minimum contract..AND he had the horrible training camp he had, the horrible preseason, and the dreadful season he’s had…DO YOU THINK HE WOULD BE RESIGNED FOR NEXT YEAR?
    Or even on the field at all..this year?

    That answer says a lot.

  • CaptainBlack

    Lil, DickyRicky, you just ain’t got enough to be personal. You are a joke! And you know it. I would wager a very large sum, say your fat momma, that nobody listens to you.

  • raiderfan801

    I hate the way DHB played this year. Apparently his rookie season is now over, and we now have a BETTER chance of winning. I think he had a horrible year, but before I give up on him, its important to remember that there is still next year. None of us know how his work ethic will be. Hopefully, he will work hard and be better. With the way that Schillens and Murphy look, if DHB can come and catch like a #7 pick, we will be IMPOSSIBLE to cover….GO RAIDERS!!!

  • CaptainBlack

    The moderator is censoring lil’DickyRick. I guess they think he’s a puke too. I know everyone here does.

  • CaptainBlack

    Go Raiders! Yes…always!
