Schilens scoped; DHB returns

A few preliminary notes following Raiders’ practice as relayed by beat writer Steve Corkran:

– Wide receiver Chaz Schilens underwent arthroscopic knee surgery. Coach Tom Cable was not sure how long he would be out.

– Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey returned to practice and looked the better for sitting out four practices with “fatigue,” making a few plays after dropping off in the sessions that preceded his absence. Running back Darren McFadden was also back on the field.

– Alex Daniels is once again a defensive lineman. He was back to wearing No. 71, instead of 39, and Cable said after practice things hadn’t progressed as the staff had hoped.

– Right tackle Langston Walker (lower back) and defensive tackle Richard Seymour (triceps) didn’t practice, nor did center Samson Satele. Cable said Satele’s ankle injury, sustained early in the Bears game, did not look serious.

– Quarterback Bruce Gradkowski will see considerable action in the last two preseason games, although Cable would not commit as to whether he would go in as No. 2 or No. 3.

More to come later . . .

    Schilens- FRUSTRATING

  • buckeyeraider

    Priest,
    You were pretty critical of Bruce Campbell and his lack of proper technique in his youtube videos.

    How do you think he’s looking so far in preseason action? Albeit in 2nd half action vs. backups and other youngsters.

    Chi ran some kinda twist/stunt and it looked like maybe he lost his man.

    But, overall he looks like he’s acquitted himself quite well. Seems to be getting some movement in the running game, IMO
    Watcha think?

    Here are a few MR. I am waiting.

    Are you serous dude, did you really just write that? LMFAO!

    I am guessing you don’t have ANY experance with guys like JR. Oh wait let me guess, you have had MANY, right?

    Many of us do not respect our bosses, coaches, teachers, ect… that does not mean we disrespect them, or put them down in front of others, like the whole team. Garcie had a GREAT work ethic! The hope was it would rub off on JR. It did not.

    Do you think a guy like DHB, couldn’t learn from a guy like James Jett? Because they are not from the same era?

    MR, di dyou play Football? Ever?

    ???????????????????

    ………………………

    Disrespect = to not respect someone. If you don’t respect someone, you hence disrespect them. Some people are more coy than others about expressing their lack of respect for someone.

    Have you had any social interactions in the last few years?

    Just because you do not “respect” someone, does not mean you ACT disrespectful to them.

    Raider O,

    Again, whoever he brought in to watch Russell, as you put it, didn’t do their job. Russell was out getting high on codeine syrup when this person, whoever he is, was supposed to be watching him.

    Right ha ha ha ha! Cause you have never out smarted you babysitter? I used to think you had a clue MR.

    Dirty Raccoon, you can make excuses for Al’s laziness all you want. If I owned the Raiders, I would have done a lot more to save Russell. That’s just me.

    ***********************

    Is this your way of not answering the question, or are you just being lazy?

    Have you “owned”, or “Ran” anything?

    Why not? If someone doesn’t respect you, it’s going to show one way or another. Are you so sensitive as to where you need people who don’t respect you to pretend they do, even when you know they don’t? I’d rather earn their respect. And the bottom line is, Jeff Garcia is NEVER going to earn the respect of someone from Russell’s background. Get a clue.

    ********************

    Do you live a gated communitie? Tell me, what do you know about “people” with backgrounds like JR?

    Still waiting.

    Excellent……Phase 1 complete
    Now start BC at RG will complete phase 2

    KK

    once you see this kid fulfill some of his immense talent you wont be laughing. If youi notice haven’t said that about Murphy or Chaz nor anyone else at that position. Bcause even as good as Chaz has shown he isn’t that kind of talent but this kid is. Once he gets his confidence up there are not many close talent wise.

    BTW I never compared him to Rice, Rice was a different type of talent. Physically speaking Rice doesn’t have that type of talent but Rice was damn near perfect.

    Oh man,..thought brian was kidding,..called me, said old man kell still comes here to cry about al davis,..I thought for sure he was kidding,..old kell,..you old jealous fool,..you mean to tell me you still havent gotten a life??????????????….wow….hard to believe an old fool your age, still behaving this way…and no MR isnt near as bad as you,..yes, MR is way too old to still live at home with mom obsessing over al davis too, but well,..he has alot of mental probs that are just out of his control, so he gets a pass,..but you old kell,…old loser in his 60`s, getting banned from chat rooms, begging Becker to please let be allowed back in,..embarrassing,..hey guys, come join my tailgate saturday night!!!

  • buckeyeraider

    Damn. SF taking em behind the woodshed again.

  • Norco Bob

    Hey TJ,..Gary is on vacation,..its cool to call now, but not next week, Garys back….however I can fix it,..again.

  • Thec07

    Looking forward to seeing the rookie run with the 1′s….Outstanding…

  • priesttj

    Buck

    The kid needs time to develope he’s got real talent for that spot but he’s green as grass yet. Give ehim this year just to digest what he’s been taught. I think if he continues to work hard at the nuances of the position and get his technigue down he can be great but not right now he’s just learning. So is Veldheer if they are pressed into duty then yeah they’ll survive but you’ll get a kid who’ll struggle at times when you can let the vet have another year and groom both kids no need to rush either of these kids give them a chance to get those positions down and you’ll soon have what you want.

  • Norco Bob

    Big tailgate saturday night,..old kell, you show, I will put on your fave,…can of pork n beans, corn bread, instant,…and some Kool Ade…come on old kell, stop by, we can drink, get high,..and we will put on some Lou Rawls for you while you cry about al davis…sound ok?

  • Chris in NY

    I don’t think Schilens will be out all that long. Coincidentally, my dad and father-in-law each had foot injuries earlier this year and the same thing happened where they favored their other leg so much they wound up needing arthroscopic knee surgery. The recovery wasn’t that bad for them. They were up and walking around the next day. Granted they didn’t have to test their knees out playing pro football, but they aren’t exactly in NFL athlete-caliber shape, either.

    Bottom line: it’s nothing like torn ligament surgery.

    Schilens will be done for the preseason and could miss a reg season game or two but I think that’s maximum … as long as there are no other problems in the meantime.

    If you Davis’s want to prematurely dish out credit to anyone for this year’s turnaround, it should be the guy who put up that Anti-Davis Billboard.

    I think that got the folks attention over there on Harbor Bay Pkway, let them know the status quo was unacceptable. That and the 7 blackouts, of course.

    ********************************************

    I donated to the funding! I did not agree with the entire message as I like Cable as coach however the GM part sounded nice. However after this offseason I think Al did a damn good job

    I pray, every day, that every home game is blacked out this year,..thats my goal, all blacked out,..Davis wants the same thing too,…lol,..come on blackouts!!!

  • DirtyRaccoon

    Norco, where you gonna be this Sat?

  • priesttj

    KK

    The billboard demanded a GM, where’s the GM?

    The status is guo you retard Big Al loked at that billbard farted and kept doing what he was doing. You can rationalize it to make yourself feel like you did something but everything just as it was. He ran the draft and the offseason based on what his coaches said they needed. He got them what they asked for.

    Same as always…..

    ——————

    I like what I’ve seen from Campbell. Had a few bigtime pushes that opened things up in the running game (Papa twice falsely credited other linemen for holes opened up by BC on the drive that ended in Boller’s 2-yard QB sneak right behind the rookie right guard).

    However, I have a feeling Carlisle is one of Cable’s guys that he sticks with all year until Al Davis steps in. We’ve seen this routine before with Kwame Harris, Fargas and others.

  • JB

    Just watching the Rams vs. Browns game. Both teams look pathetic. Bradford, the #1 QB draftee, looks very raw. He’s reading defenses worse than JaLoser did assuming that’s even possible. All he does is throw 3-5 yard checkdowns. The Browns QB isn’t doing much better. The Brown Rob Ryan defense is well, a Rob Ryan 3-4 defense. Compared to these two teams, we look like SB caliber.

  • JB

    BTW, Howie Long’s kid isn’t doing anything noteworthy. He didn’t do anything last year. I’m glad we didn’t take him. He may have a motor but he doesn’t have the necessary bulk to be a force.

  • jmeds

    Put McFadden in the slot mixed with Higgins and Ford. Put DHB and Murphy outside. McFadden has hands like a reciever and needs to be on the field70% of the time. With Miller at tight end, we can still create mismatches all over the field. What a real NFL QB will allow you to huh Nation!!!!

    Whats is so upsetting to most of the people on here is. We all knew we needed to fix both lines before we get too excited. Things are looking up for the raiders but the offensive line is still weak. Center , definitely right tackle and guard are so weak. Al please do some work and get a center for jason and a WR.
