The Raiders concluded their second minicamp sessions Monday with minimal media intrustion, with most everyone bailing out ofter updating the JaMarcus Russell situation.
Defensive end Trevor Scott was not at practice, his place taken by Quentin Groves.
All media availability takes place before practice.
Practice highlights included a lot of snaps by quarterback Jason Campbell, some good, some not so good.
A couple of first impressions:
– Campbell throws some truly awful looking passes that still find their target,and find it with good timing.
– For a quarterback who is not supposed to be mobile, Campbell gets outside on a rollout pretty quickly.
– Defensive tackle Lemarr Houston and cornerback Walter McFadden, both rookie draft picks, had their NFL welcomes in the afternoon session.
Houston didn’t know he was supposed to be on the field, raced to left end, then had both his helmet and jersey ripped off in a neat move by right tackle Langston Walker.
McFadden found himself victimized in coverage often by a number of different receivers.
