Day 2 practice updates here

Getting ready to head to Napa for the second day of training camp.

The first order of business will be to see if Chaz Schilens, who left practice early during Thursday’s second session, is on the field.

Ordinarily, leaving practice early is no big deal and that could be the case here. It happens all the time, particularly early in camp, when players experience anything from muscle tightness to an upset stomach.

But Schilens’ case will be watched closely because he’s had two surgeries on his left foot within the past year for a broken metatarsal, an injury which cut short his training camp in 2009 and cost him half of the regular season. He is the most skilled player at what qualifies as a possession receiver among the wideouts on the Raiders’ inexperienced receiving corps.

Schilens walked off the practice field under his own power and returned after practice had ended, neither time on crutches, walking with a limp or wearing the dreaded protective boot of Darren McFadden fame.

Check here for updates on my Twitter account from the penalty box.

(For some reason, the media viewing area is divided this year by a line in the center. Not sure why. Perhaps to form an isolation unit if and when Poole and Kawakami arrive).

    DO NOT trade DMc for Delonte or his towel or Gloria.

    Yep, finally some things are too disgusting as trade fodder for DMc.

    mornin’ brethren, ladies.

    so who gets blown up by Mike Mitchell in camp?

    you know it’s going to happen!

    Nick Miller, Yamon Figurs, Jonathan Holland, Shaun Bodiford, Paul Hubbard ???

    I hope it’s just a camp fodder guy (above) :)

    DMAC needs a protective boot for the FOOTBALL!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Even Jerry is taking shots at D-Mac these days.

  • hwnrdr

    Mike Mitchell WILL have the spirit of the Assassin! I hope him and JLH get into it! Hopefully it will toughen that dude up!

    I like the black face shield on these two. Not sure if I’ve seen this before…just a practice thing?

    Blown up by MM34? I cast my eye toward Aug 12 and the Crystal Ball says…Cowgirl #88.

  • M Lonetree

    Hwnrdr,

    did you see the recent internet photo of a “zedonk”. Proof positive that the Denver Donkeys and NFL officials have long been in cahoots (among other things).

  • hwnrdr

    Good Morning M,
    no I haven’t…All other 31 teams and the officials are in cahoots (well, when they play the Raiders)!
    You have a link to that? Would like to see it…

    Trade DMAC for the
    dreaded protective boot of Darren McFadden fame

    —–Ok I dont really mean it, let’s just get it out of the way early

  • hwnrdr

    OMG…That is too funny! First of all, did the Zebra stoop that low, or did the donkey jump that high? In this case, the mother is a donk, so…lol

    And yes, that will ring true in the court of law the Donks and Refs have long been in cahoots! ROFLMAO!

  • PhillyRAIDERNATION

    Man I am really starting to wonder if we should have passed on TO!!!

    Hopefully Chaz is OK, but we are definitely looking real thin at Reciever..

  • Just Fire Baby

    I imagine the Donkey love by the zebra’s won’t diminish when Jesus 2.0 is QB for them.

  • M Lonetree

    JustFB,

    exactly. Zedonkism may reach new lows in attempts to protect Tbone.
    Then again Tbone is crazy enough to think that he might survive head-on collisions with MM34, Tyvon and Rolando.

    Tebow will start ZERO games this year.

    Orton is the starter this year and if he throws for 3800 yards and 21 TD’s again, possibly next

    Denver has always been a run-first, play solid D football team. McDaniels went pass happy last year for whatever reason but I don’t expect them to try that again without Marshall & Scheffler …

  • RaiderRockstar

    despite being drafted in Round 1, Tim Tebow is still a project.

    is McDaniels the guy to groom him? maybe

    if he continues to work with Gruden & Trestman I imagine that’ll expedite the process

    this year? bench for 16 games

  • Just Fire Baby

    As soon as the Broncos fall out of contention, Tebow will be seeing reps, if not sooner.

    If McDaniels just plays Orton and they go 5-11, he might get canned, so at least playing a rookie and going 5-11 gives him an excuse to stick around longer.

    And I think Tebow will see Wildcat action week 1.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Denver Broncos = last place in AFC West.

    Book it.

    Tebow can’t throw the ball more than 15 yards with accuracy…no reason to even talk about that guy.

    ++++++++++++++++

    What did we get from him….a couple of games in the last 2-3 seasons! Im beginning to think Murphy is better and DHB is right there with him!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Neither could Jamarcus and we gave him 25 starts.

  • RaiderRockstar

    DHB and Asomugha working one-on-one after practice

    signing off … Planning to get some depth charts up online tonight

    DHB hasn’t shined like minicamp or workouts … but early practices geared to knowing where you should be, not making plays

    Ford catching punts in afternoon

    Schilens hasn’t returned from fieldhouse yet

    Heyward-Bey stiff-arms Boyd – so much for no contact

    Asomugha leaps for pick against Gradkowski and hands ball to Jackson

    Henderson looks big; can’t tell much from second-team walkthrough – will ask Cable Friday

    Welcome back: Ware strips Watkins after catch

    Ware and Branch nicked up but still in the mix

    Miller diving catch: Jackson yells, “I got one guy who can catch”

    Raiders might actually have some depth on defense

    Groves looking spry, would have had Cartwright for loss

    Campbell looks solid. Most-used word teammates used to describe him today was “dependable”

    You know little Nicky is the one all over the field. No need to get worried though, Chaz’s injury makes JLH safe, lol.

    Nnamdi jumps Hubbard route and picks Gradkowski

    Murphy can’t make one handed sideline pass from Gradkowski,

    Jackson all over Gradkowski led offense for sloppy huddle and break

    CMON BRUCE !!!!

    Get your shyt together!

    Don’t make my man JFB look bad …

  • RaiderRockstar
  • Just Fire Baby

    Are we making too much out of Chaz’s walk-off to the training room?

    I mean if you told us we would get about 75% participation in OTA’s, about 50% in training camp, and 10 games in the year, we would all be fairly happy with that.

    No reason to do anything with him, he is still on that 7th round pick rookie contract, he probably is one of the lowest paid players on the team.

  • M Lonetree

    JustFB,

    your expose from your time in Denver about the fawning over their rookie QB lends creedence to your belief that TBone will see action in some shape or form. The swooning masses will demand it.

    Adam_Schefter A major loss. RT @1WinningDrive Coach Harbaugh confirms Ravens CB Domonique Foxworth has a torn ACL and will miss the 2010 season

    Not sure who they have to cover anyone?

  • Just Fire Baby

    Let’s give Bruce a little slack, first practice in about 6 months.

    A sloppy huddle, and a Nnamdi pick. Let’s not get too crazy, he should be primed for the backup spot come 2 weeks in Dallas, and we will just have to go from there.

  • J Wiggle

    Yes they are

    Ravens make teams one-dimensional and take it from there.

    I made my Ravens to SB prediction based on the fact their offense should be much improved this year.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jwigg:

    Lardarius Webb & Walt Harris may start out on the PUP list?

  • M Lonetree

    Chaz was part of that old band, JaBlubber and the Wounded.
    Perhaps it’s time to just erase that disk and get on with a whole new recording.

  • RaiderRockstar

    DB’s are dime a dozen with a defense that can stuff the run and attacks the QB every play!

    2010 Ravens defense will be solid
