Schilens out until training camp

The “procedure” Chaz Schilens underwent following the season on his left foot was significant enough that the wide receiver will probably be out until training camp.

Schilens, as he did during the mandatory minicamp, was a spectator as his teammates went through warmups, drills and team sessions.

That means the Raiders aren’t confident enough about Schilens’ condition to even allow him to run patterns against no defenders, fearful the pushoff could result in a setback. Schilens originally broke his foot during training camp last year on just such a maneuver _ pushing off on a pass route.

Schilens had surgery at the time of the injury and disclosed there was a follow-up procedure at the mandatory minicamp.

“I think we’ll take our time with that, just to be smart,” Cable said. “I don’t want to do anything to set it back. If he’s there when we go to camp _ which he will be _ I’ll be happy with that.”

And no, Cable reiterated, there has been no talk of adding Terrell Owens to the chemistry of a youthful wide corps of wide receivers. A speculative ESPN article linked Owens to the Raiders, citing no sources and claiming no inside information. Cable refuted the claim in a KNBR radio interview Tuesday and again to reporters on Wednesday.

“We haven’t had any discussions whatsoever about that,” Cable said.

    #1 Lakers aren’t as physical as Celtics (KG, Pierce, Rasheed,Perkins, Big baby etc;

    ——————————————————-

    Wrong!

    That surely applied 2 years ago when Gasoft was in full Euro mode. But there if you think that Perkins will be able to bully Gasol this year, well we’ll just see about that.

    James Posey was the reason the Celtics beat the Lakers a few years ago when you get down to it. Tony Allen is not going to hit 3′s and play one on one defense against Kobe like Posey did. And no house to hit those 3′s?

    Celtics can’t match up to all the bullets in the Lakers gun.

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    When you consistenly, over many years, troll a Raiders blog to “mock” Al Davis, thats hatred. And since you don’t even know this old guy, it is psychitic.

    Ask around. It is you who needs to get over it. And keep going.

    We don’t need House to hit 3′s, it just cuts into Ray Allens #’s
    I didn’t say Tony Allen was a game changer, just someone who is easy to under estimate ecspecialy when your focused on the big 4.
    The Celtics are playing great team basketball right now and this is when it counts the most. We had a great tune up against Lebron to prepare us for Kobe.
    I think Perkins is physical but is not even in the same catergoy as Gasol (props)

    ——————————————————-

    Not at all.

    Your bench play was HUGE! Being able to defend Kobe one on one? All those HUGE 3′s Posey hit?

    You’re off the rocker if you discount Posey’s impact 2 years ago.

    Glad you concede Perkins is not in Gasol’s class. Especially after the way he took apart the Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard last year.

    Paul Pierce will NOT put up 20 a game against Artest.

    Ray Allen will get his 20. KG will get his 16 or so, and Pierce will be around 20.

    There is not enough scoring off the bench to contend with the Lakers. And if you think the Lakers are not going to score 100 pts a game, then you thinking with your heart.

  • HairyBush

    Anymore notable free agents out there? I got this bad feeling Chaz is going to miss too much time this year.

  • inonewordraider

    During clutch time with the Magic down Dwight Howard is shown smiling and laughing like a ten year old girl. Would Kobe or Fisher do that? Vince Carter misses both free throws to get his team within 1. Would Garnett or Pierce do that? Orlando has no heart and doesn’t listen to their coach. Lakers Celtics gonna be a the best finals series in decades

  • jhill

    We had a great tune up against Lebron to prepare us for Kobe.

    ——————————————————-

    That’s ridiculous!

    LeBron is no where near the offensive threat Kobe is. 2 totally different games. Kobe is not afraid to shoot the ball, lol!

    AND …

    Our supporting cast is head and shoulders above what Cleveland had.

    If Doc is dumb enough to try and guard Kobe one one one with either Pierce or Allen, then he’s going to losse even more scoring since those guys will be in foul trouble.

  • jhill

    I give Boston their props though. Without question the best team in the East. I wanted to play Boston last year. Beating the Magic was so unsatisfying, lol!

    Means NOTHING unless you beat Boston, who treated us like biotches 2 years ago. Time for some get back!

    Boston over Lakers, 4 games to 2. Everyone knows that’s how a Lakers Celtic series would go, except for Laker fans, but we’ll let them live in their world.

  • cranium68

    I agree with a lot of the comments – Schilens could be great if he could stay healthy but this foot injury is very troubling. The fact that they had to go back in and do more work is a very, very bad sign.

    The Raiders need a proven veteran WR and I’m not crazy about TO but who else is out there? I just don’t see DHB stepping it up that much. He might be good for 20 catches this season at best. Overtones of James Jett.

    Schilens is as fragile as any player I have EVER seen in the NFL. WTF. Dude really hasn’t done much anyway. Time to waive him. The Raiders need to reach an injury settlement with him and move on, his body simply can’t handle the NFL. BUT, just say NO to T BLOW!!

    Yes, the bench was huge then I agree. Rajon Rondo in 2008 was no where near the player he has evolved into this year. I’m sure we can see common ground in that point.I am personnaly a big Posey fan but you are giving him way to much credit.

    Is it me or do Laker fans want to ignore the fact that Rondo is going to tear you a new ahole. What is the plan for him, realistically?

    Pierce has come to life this series and it will continue. His #’s were down last series because he exerted all of his energy trying to defend Lebron.

    Kobe will get his #’s and yes you may even score 100. Truth be told the 2010 Celtics seem to me to be playing much more of an up tempo style as opposed to 2008 (thanks in large part to the emergence of our point guard.) I believe the Celtics will not only keep up with the lakers and ther scoring but will out muscle them whe it counts.

    BTW who is your point guard? Do you not agree that in critical games that it is crucial to have a top notch guy you can trust in that position? You have a great coach, to bad he can’t be you point guard. You will see it will matter ecspecailly at the end of close games.
