No change in status of injured players

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, September 10th, 2010 at 10:02 am in Oakland Raiders.

Michael Bush was indeed back on the field as the Raiders went through some light drills Friday before their practice this morning, but just barely.

As John Fassel put special teams through the paces on kickoff returns and coverage on the near field, Bush was with the running backs, tight ends and quarterbacks one field over. While backs and tight ends loped through half-speed patterns near the goal line, Bush cradled a football in his right arm, his fractured left thumb in a protective wrap, and was essentially a spectator.

Wide receiver Chaz Schilens (knee), cornerback Walter McFadden (hamstring) and linebacker Travis Goethel (lower back) were not present. After a relatively brief practice, coach Tom Cable will have an even shorter briefing with the media on the field before the team boards busses headed for the Oakland Airport and a charter flight to Nashville.

By NFL rules, players must be classifed today as “probable,” “questionable,” “doubtful” or “out.”

Cable said Thursday Bush would be a “game time decision,” likely meaning a classification as “questionable.”

    Hahaha, I hope you’re right PD81. The whole RNation would have a huge exhale after the game if you are!

  • Just Fire Baby

    A Huffy int returned inside the 10, that little fake inside, toss outside pitch to D-Mac around the goalline for a score over the pylon.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Seymour will be doubled.

    Amano and either Jake Scott or Leroy Harris, depending on where he lines up

    I still think they’ll move him around and try to create the mismatch

  • PurpleDrank81

    Man its a big year for the Kid and he’s been working so hard….I want him to succeed to jus make the haters look stupid….I have faith in him

    @Raider75. Take solice that all the folks picking Tenn are going with high scores. Any body who watches football AND knows anything about stats knows that 1st week games tend to be low scoring. Several reasons for that. Last night was case in point.
    So the Tenn pickers already have compromised credibility.

    First play – play action, fake to Bush and hit Murphy on a slant for 13 yds. Chisel it in stone!
    ********
    Bush isnt even going to play…

  • PurpleDrank81

    I cant wait til they double Seymour and then wonder why this rookie kid named Houston keeps gettin in the back field

  • No Mas Diamante

    First Raider score – on their first drive of the game – Mcfadden 33 yd scamper down the right sideline after a quick pitch from Campbell! Titans look stunned. Fischer looks like he just bit into a rotten shrimp.

  • HairyBush

    Marc Mariani, not Damian Williams, is expected to be the primary kick returner in Sunday’s game against the Raiders.

    The Titans have not announced their plans, but Mariani is now atop the depth chart on kickoffs and punts after out producing Williams in preseason action.

    Watch out for Mariani! Lol Who?

  • PurpleDrank81

    We have to play better special teams to when the game…. Cant afford to let them run1 back

  • No Mas Diamante

    Right now, I think betty White could run back a for score on the way our st coverage units have been playing.

    Don’t put me on the list of not being credable.
    To say all week 1 games are going to be low scoring is ignorant. How do you know? You don’t know anymore than I do unless you are pychic. That is why it is called a prediction.

    I like to go with facts.
    1)When was the time the Raiders won a home opener?
    2) When was the last time Oakland beat the Titans?
    3) Realistically we are probaly without our feature back
    4) Chris Johnson
    5)Titans are at home

    Do I need to go on? I don’t just pull stuff out of the air, I form opinions based on a lot of things. I think the Raiders are going to play a great game but fall short because of something stupid like say a Yamom Figurs fumble deep in our teritory. I bleed Silver & Black, just have my doubts on this one. Just sayin
