Campbell throwing at practice

Jason Campbell was participating in a walk-through practice session with the other Raiders quarterbacks Monday, throwing passes of 20 to 30 yards in range, beat writer Steve Corkran reports.

Campbell sustained a stinger and a right wrist injury in Saturday night’s 28-24 loss to San Francisco, with coach Tom Cable saying during a conference call that the wrist injury was of bigger concern with regard to the season opener Sept. 12 against Tennessee.

The Raiders have just three days to prepare for Thursday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, with rosters cut to 75 on Wednesday.

Among those who were on the field during the media window (practice is now closed to the media except for warmups and some drills) were center Samson Satele (ankle), Richard Seymour (triceps) and cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring).

Those not present included wide receiver Chaz Schilens (knee), defensive tackle Desmond Bryant (elbow), cornerback Joey Thomas (concussion), running back Michael Bush (thumb), defensive end Alex Daniels (groin) and defensive end Jay Richardson (groin).

I’ll pass along some post-practice news and notes as relayed by Steve . . .

    I know Bryant is hurt, he will still beable to start quicker than Chaz.

    Look given the Shell preseason I’m happy we lost. The most discouraging thing was the run defense.

    Both our two first games are against two prolific runners!!!!!!!!!

    Hey guys.

    Been a while.

    What are your thoughts on Mario Henderson this year. I recently read an article stating he was doing poorly. Living on the East coast, I have to wait for the regular season to get the games. I get nflnetwork, but do not like watching games when I already know the outcome. I have first heard Henderson was doing well, however read an article today suggesting otherwise.

    Anyone…. PLEASE>>>>>

    I think he’s our best LT unless Veldheer overtakes him. He got burned bad on the play that took Campbell out of the game but don’t recall him allowing another sack in the preseason. 49er lb’s (Willis mostly) were in the backfield all day, that’s the middle of the lines fault (Gallery, Veldheer, Carlisle)

    69. Watkins critcal drop was an over the shoulder sliding attempt between 2 defenders. He makes the team just cuz he has for so many years.

    Figurs sucks and Miller has done little to nothing to justify another year on the dole.

    Brown seems like aplay maker and Oakland likes that but don’t know if he’s got enough to make the cut. Eugene is Eugene…

    watkins is the one who sucks–dropping multiple key passes. figurs made all of his catches. figurs has done well for his limited plays.

    Henderson was responsible for Campbell getting hurt. Not good

  • RNOraiderFan

    Myers came to us a a BA blocking TE. then it seemed the guy was good as a pass catcher too. The guy has regressed and can not get on the field to either block or catch. What good is he?

    We will need someone who can catch to spell Zack, and block in double TE sets. Would not cut this one based on him droping a pass. If that were the case, we would have no WR’s….

    I watch the game, I see brown close on the ball carrier and get carried for 5-7 yard then the tackle is made. Williams on the otherhand smacks fools down on first contact.
    ————-
    Yes, I did notice that. heck, singletary would have sent out the entire first defense to win the darn game. you can tell he wanted to win. going for it every chance he got on fourth down, bringing first teamers in at the end of the game like you stated, maybe even paying off the refs for those sad PI calls. lol.

    &
    brown gets carried for about 5-7 yards a pop when tackling. i agree.

  • inonewordraider

    With the depth of our team we could sustain injuries to most key players Nnamdi, Seymour, Campbell, Schilens, but the guy we cannot afford to lose is Miller. Our other TE’s aren’t close. I’m thinking Barnes could hold the fort down if Gallery went out and Brown could fill in for Mcclain temporarily…

    Thanks guys.

    Yeah, Henderson would be on third strign on anyone elses o-line but the Raiders. Plays like he has brick feet on to many plays.

    McMuffin better get his game together. He is a huge diappointment so far. 1st was Russell no doubt but second has been McMuffin.

  • RaiderLen

    The problem with John Henderson is he gets NO PUSH in the passing game.
    ————————————–
    What I saw was a lack of explosivness. Big John got some push at times, but It looked as though he was playing sloooow.

  • stoopidmike

    damn I sure hope we keep all four (campbell/grads/boller/brennan) I think colt on practice squad would be great, and with shaky protection we are gonna need QB depth, as evident with last year….I’d like to see bennett and rock stick too. rock can be our 4th rb and 2nd fb (depth) plus special team (no kick returns please)…Curious to see who we dump…We seem to be the team that has the biggest surprise cuts in the nfl each year

  • Coach on Wheels

    My pre-cut notes from camp and 3 preseason games…

    QB – JC, Grads, Boller with Hue J is a HUGE upgrade. Grads last year looked no where near as good as he does in ’10. The Pitt game gave him confidence and he’s now a gamer. QB depth is a must in the NFL.

    RB – Bush is the only thing close to an every down back. He gets hurt, it gets ugly. DMAC tripping and falling on a draw vs SF about sums it up.

    WR – DHB needs to keep improving. Chaz is oft-injured and Murphy isn’t a secret any more. The rest might get 3 TDs combined all year.

    OL – Fix it now, people yell. Then on draft day they ignorantly claim you can get OL starters in later rounds. The Raiders have ONE guy they invested a 1st or 2nd rd pick on. Cable has him playing at a pro bowl level. The rest are cast-offs and projects. Henderson was a 3rd who is developing into an average guy. In the NFL a full-time LT taken in the 3rd is a success. Brittle-bone Satele has never gone 16 games so expect a 3rd rd project to start. If Campbell ligitly unseats Carlisle during the year a 4th rd project will be starting. BTW – Giving up a few sacks to a D like SF doesn’t mean the line sucks. Center and RG are the big concerns.

    DL – The new coach has these guys playing great in pass rush but the jury is still out on run stopping.

    B – McClain is already better at filling gaps. They have helped stuff many short yardage plays. Coverage? We’ll see.

    DB – Branch becoming a star. Huff and Routt playing better. Mitchell a good short yardage option. Ware and Mcfadden decent for rookies. Deepest area on team.

  • fat kidd

    roger clemmens should be prosecuted for lying to congress because congress never lies!!!

  • GANJApassion

    We need a beter O-line bottom line that would maek a QB’s safer and better and RB’s safer and better which would make our WR’s better which would make our Offense better which would make our Defense better (which i think talent wise we have the the best) We need better coaching on specails teams and D. Louis Murphy is going top be a factor on our team i thought tht last year our WR’s just need to keep working. We just need better players up front cuz a good o-line can make a decent QB and a decnet RB look excellent we have most of the pieces, Oh yea Huff needs to come out on Rushing downs he cant tackle he gets ran thru like he aint there WAAAAAYYY too much. We should lead the leagune in interceptions or clspoe to it every year..it all comes down to having time on the offense to make plays

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/skew-t/166654980/ BART Bridge Blues

    The play of the D-line I can handle, becuase to some extent it seemed like the Raiders dialed back the pressure, which is smart considering they are playing these guys again this season in a game that matters.

    But the O-line, WTF? Three years Cable has been here preaching about what a great O-line coach he is, since that first year he has acquired Mario Henderson, Kwame Harris, Khalif Barnes, Samson Satele, Cooper Carlisle, Cornell Green, Langston Walker, Erik Pears and moved Bob Gallery to Gaurd, and has the line gotten one iota better since Cable’s very first season with us? It has regressed if anything. He might be good with scheme and technique, but personnel analysis seems lacking. I am tired of all these scrubs, what does it say that 3 years after dumping Langston Walker, he is back starting for us. Every draft most of us opine for hours on which tackles, gaurds and centers the team should get; and other than Bruce Campell and Jared Veldheer (both massive projects), they have drafted nobody to help the line. I really hope Campbell and Veldheer pan out, but even if they do we need more linemen AND more talented linemen..1st and 2nd rounders, not projects, cast-offs and scrubs.

  • DirtyRaccoon

    VittorioTafur Oakland released four players – TE Tony Stewart, WR Paul Hubbard, G Allen Smith and FB Chane Moline – and has one more to announce Tuesday.

  • edward teach

    COW,

    Good to see you back in here. I agree about Bush being the every-down down back, and about the backtracking on drafting o-linemen early. I wanted Pouncey, but you can’t have him and McClain both, and I guess they figured Morrison sucked worse than Satele. McClain is a newbie, but as you say fills gaps that Morrison couldn’t even find.

    Question for you; would you keep both Bennett and Cartwright, or would you cut one of them?

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/skew-t/166654980/ BART Bridge Blues

    COW,
    your thoughts on the O-line mirror my own, almost word for word. This continues to be the team’s biggest weakness, despite our head coach specializing in it…

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    What I see is 4 Qb’s to get through a 16 game season, 6 Qb’s if we see post season. We need to keep them all, bring back JR and sign Favre. This will give us a chance, This O-line destroys Qb’s, not the opposition…..

  • inonewordraider

    Did you guys see DMAC limping after getting tackled and reaching for what looked like was his back or possibly hammy?

  • RaiderLen

    Suprised the Raiders released Stewart.

    I’ve assumed we’d keep three TE’s.

    What gives? Waiver wire claim of another TE?

    Reese as a Hybrid FB/TE?

    Curious.

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/skew-t/166654980/ BART Bridge Blues

    TE Tony Stewart, WR Paul Hubbard, G Allen Smith and FB Chane Moline

    The only mild surprise here is Tony Stewart, but I figured they would only carry 2 TE’s with all the young offensive players they are trying to develop.

    These first cuts are guys they dont even want on the PS, so Moline must have lost to Manase Tonga and Alex Daniels in the FB battle.

    I have not heard Paul Hubbard or Allen Smith’s names mentioned in the entire pre-season. wa waaaa

  • Kirk

    Gradkowski made a believer out of me on Saturday. He hit every single receiver right on the numbers and quickly. The problem is our o line is so bad, he is going to get killed.

  • Coach on Wheels

    I think thhe team keeps Cartright and Bennet because DMAC is not a legit 30 carry option if Bush gets / stays hurt.

    TE Stewart became expendable late in 2009 when Cable had OT Pears playing as the power blocking TE in short yardage sets.

    Cable doesn’t claim to be an o-line guy. He is. Every draft he has publicly drooled over 1st rd talent but we drafted DHB and Mitchell for example. Whining about Harris and Barnes? Why? Why not take a low-cost flyer on a guy who was thought of as 1st rd talent especialy if you know you aren’t getting Clady on draft day? If he flops you’re no worse off. If he does a Jim Plunkett style emergence, you’re gold.

    The o-line is a work in progress but remember it is FIVE positions. Cable cut Carlisle remember but had to bring him back because he’s better than anybody available. Cable has been given one 1st, two 3rds, a 4th and a bunch of free agents to fill five spots. He’s making t-bone out of hamburger but you expect prime rib?
