Figurs among the missing

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, September 15th, 2010 at 1:04 pm in Oakland Raiders.

No word on who the Raiders cut to make room for Erik Pears, but return specialist/wide receiver Yamon Figurs was not present or accounted for during the media window Wednesday.

Figurs didn’t finish the Tennessee game with a stringer, but said Monday he was good to go for the St. Louis game.

Those not present at practice who had injury issues included left guard Robert Gallery (hamstring), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring) and linebacker Travis Goethel (lower back) cornerback Walter McFadden (hamstring). Those present but not practicing were cornerback Chris Johnson and safety Hiram Eugene.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha also wasn’t practice as practice began. Asomugha occasionally comes out late after stretching with trainers. Running back Michael Bush was on the field with his left thumb wrapped and was in conversation with trainer Rod Martin as practice began.

Free safety Michael Huff, who didn’t finish the game with a knee injury, was practicing.

More to come later . . .

    KK,

    Al drafted Gallery 1st RD, Grove 2nd RD, Matt S 1st RD
    ————————————–
    Yes he did. Gallery in fact, was a can’t miss. But he did. There’s just so many things they do wrong.

    The Rams have improved but Bradford will still throw 2ints…I still think will be 500 for the season… Granted we did have a terrible game against the Titans but I do believe we can score on the Rams if we lose to the Rams im movin to columbia and giving up on sports

    Is “Oakland Raiders” on facebook an official Oakland Raiders page?

    This is their recent update:

    “Whats Gradkowski’s record as a starter ?
    Throwing Jason Campbell under the bus after one start is overreaction.”

    Wow. Did Al type that himself? Nice way to bash a backup quarterback on YOUR TEAM, presently ON THE ROSTER!!

    Anyhow, I left a comment there in the past half hour. See if you guys can guess the identity of the one and only MR.

    It should have been obvious when they were shuffling ol around the line and had rookies playing 3 different places that this line would suck. Whose idea was it to put Veldheer in at center? That is the most illogical move that could be made. Put the tallest guy on the team right in front of the qb so he can throw over the guy? then again, he can’t complete the snap in the first place because he hasn’t played center since he was in high school. Yeah, let’s start him at center on Sunday. Good move. Stupid!

  • PurpleDrank81

    Titans defensive tackle Jason Jones told the (Nashville) Tennessean that Campbell was leaning back a little bit before the snap on passing plays. That would partially explain the great jump the Titans were getting off the snap

    If he does this again were screwed

    Never mind. It’s unofficial. Just read the group’s description. I just clicked like on it months back when I saw it suggested. So, disregard my recent comment. I was responding to something said on an unofficial Raider page, not a real Raider page. Just pretend you never read it. ALRIGHT? We good? Cool.

    I don’t think you got the official page. Here it is:

    I’M THINKING THEY SHOULD PLAY A 3-4AND ZONE BLITZ WITH LAMAR HOUSTON DROOPING INTO SHORT ZONES AND THE OLB{HOWARD OR WEMBLEY COMING OFF THE EDGE OR IN A GAP

  • LhayeS37

    MOVE CARTWRIGHT INSIDE WITH RM

  • El Gato Negro

    The thing is, Al did draft some OL prospects this year, but Cable is messing around and moving them around out of position. Regardless, putting them in as rookies isn’t going to solve anything, either. Our current OL woes are a direct result of years of ignoring the OL in the draft, signing others’ cast-offs in free agency, and installing a different blocking scheme every other year. Not that I’m saying anything everyone doesn’t already know…

  • LhayeS37

    I MEAN GROVES INSIDE WITH RM.PUT JON H. AT NOSE AND PLAY A HEAVY FRONT AND TRY TO KILL THE QB WITH THE ZONE BLITZ.

  • LhayeS37

    THE O-LINE HAS PLAYERS OUT OF POSITION.IS IT AL OR TOM?

    I don’t know how good many of you felt last week before Sundays Game but you should have seen it coming. We start a guy that has no recent experience at center in the second hardest stadium to deal with crowd noise, Seattle the worst. Working with a QB in their first start. I see this so much in the N.F.L why keep your guys down in their stances so long. I would have kept it heavy run to start call a play run it. I mean its clear we can make some adjustments to help the tackles but we are not that talented yet to play in that environment. I do see a defensive line and middle line backer that looked ok. We let a big one go on a missed tackle because you have come under control when you try to tackle a talented back like CJ. I would not give up the ship yet, I think this team is better than what we saw. If Rolando McLain is the guy and I think he is we will bounce back. The concern I have with the offense is it doesn’t look like we try to free up the receivers for some quick easy throws. I can see the approach the Rams will deploy this week bring the heat and keep bringing the heat until Oakland shows they can counter that. If we cant block them in the passing game we have a major problem that the current coaching staff cant fix. RAIDEFFORLIFE
