Thursday, September 16th, 2010 at 11:31 am in Oakland Raiders.
As the Raiders concluded their media window for Thursday’s practice, visitors heading toward the field included John Madden and Joe Torre.
But as they completed warmups and drills, there was no sign of Robert Gallery or Richard Seymour, the latest in a rash of hamstring strains which has plagued the club.
Rookie cornerback Walter McFadden remains out with a hamstring injury sustained in the final preseason game. Hiram Eugene had a hamstring issue and was back on the field. Darren McFadden and Chris Johnson missed a significant portion of training camp with hamstring issues.
Johnson, out Tuesday with stinger, was back on the field. So was cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (groin).
During special teams practice, Jacoby Ford was the deep man on some kickoffs, paired with Rock Cartwright, an indication he could be returning kickoffs with Johnnie Lee Higgins handling punts.
Torre has been friends with Davis since the two grew up in Brooklyn. Davis is at the facility but was not out at practice when the media departed.
The Dodgers are in town, playing against the Giants.
