Henderson has stress fracture

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, October 6th, 2010 at 3:15 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Defensive tackle John Henderson has a stress fracture and will be out an undetermined period of time.

Coach Tom Cable gave a three- to six-week time from for Henderson’s absence, although he noted that the healing period could be prolonged because of Henderson’s size.

In other news, linebacker Rolando McClain was absent because of an illness in the family and is expected to be back at practice Thursday.

More to come . . .

    the one guy that was truely making a difference on the run defense…he’s out for the season.

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    Gruden didn’t have free rein in Oakland. He has publicly admitted that he had to manipulate Al Davis into doing certain things….Gruden simply handled Al better than most coaches. And Bruce Allen was around as a buffer zone between the HC and the owner.

    Trading Gruden cost us at least 1 SB…maybe more.

    But again, Al would rather lose doing it his way than see anyone else get the majority of the credit for winning in Oakland. Al thought we were looking pretty good going into this season, that is why he came out and took all the credit for the roster…you guys were giving too much credit to that chump Cable for the draft….that backfired didn’t it Al?

    The NFL is about Scheme & Execution, and the Raiders are good at neither.

    How can you scapegoat Cable

    He has no control of roster
    No control over his staff
    No control over schemes they play

    I’m no Cable fan, but get real.
    ========================================================

    That is the stone cold truth.
    I am shocked
    I have never heard you make such a profound truth

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    Should have drafted a young NT a year or two ago…not that Al would let a NT get in the way of having two pass rushing DTs taking down that QB….hard….lmao…not that that has worked for Al in quite some time.

    Hey Al, the last time we stopped the run, we had Parrella and Adams…both run stuffing DTs…and wouldn’t you know it…out LBs got 15.5 sacks that year….

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    So, Henderson will play the Chaz role this year. “Once we get Chaz back the O will be unstoppable!”…”Once we get henderson back it’ll be 70 rush yds per game”…wake up! The Titans gained 200+ yards with Henderson. the Roster suxxs!

    Even under those circumstances, the HC can still motivate and inspire the team to wins and develop young players. Cable gets a huge F in both those categories.

    It surprises me that people do not recognize Gannon’s O-line was the real reason for his success. Who gives a fig if you have a “firey go get em” QB if the O-line dominates.

    The QB doesn’t matter as long as your o-line absolutely stinks!

    post 10….

    this is why Al can’t be the GM. His track record says he doesn’t believe in building the lines…he expects any undrafed FA or late round pick to come in and do the job.. sorry but we seriously lack talent on both sides of the line, we have enough track stars and skill position guys.. hell even DHB would look like a viable deep threat if the line could protect well enough for the underneath routes for Miller and the RBs’ to be there consistently!

    To anyone proclaiming that Davis didn’t meddle over Gruden:

    Explain Jankikowski. I’m all ears. Please try to tell me Jano was Gruden’s pick. I can use the afternoon comedy.

    Gannon won. kerry collins did not. Elway won, Griese did not. Plnkett Won, mark Wilson did not. Brady won, Bledsoe did not. etc.

    The QB is the most important player of any and all NFL teams.

    It surprises me how Raider fans hate on the only QB that brought respectibility to the team during the last 25 years.

  • raiderlaker1980

    dating back to 1999, our only 1st round draft pick that has panned out is Nnamdi. How in the hell can you have a successful team when you can’t get any of your young high payed players to make a difference?

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    The o-line has some to do with Gannon’s success, but it certainly wasn’t like that o-line was the Cowboy’s o-line of the 1990s.

    If you recall, Gannon spent quite a bit of time on the run…and he avoided many sacks due to the quick pass patterns in Gruden’s offense.

    Give Gannon some damned credit…he was not only a leader, but he had talent too. Don’t forget that he lead KC to a great record and those idiots benched him and proceeded to lose to Dungver in the playoffs the year before he got here.

    Gannon with this o-line would still be heads and shoulders above Garbagekowski.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Raiders can not afford to trade 2011 draft picks for players this season, w/o having a #1 next year.

    Raiders need to trade player for player and flip flop picks if needed.

    Raider fans hate everything right now. closing in on a decade of utter futility will do that I suppose, even the players that made a difference on teams of past successful years are given a big “FU” right now it seems

    —————-

    Al Drafted, Gruden coached. Had no final say on the 53 man roster. Gruden was fine with who Al took.

    Al always knows the best athletes and leaves it up to coaches to turn them into football players.

  • LhayeS37

    ANYBODY BANGING ON GANNON SHOULD JUST BE IGNORED

  • LA to TheBay

    Occasionally Gruden would get in the old man’s ear and get some roster moves made (Gannon for George most significant I can remember off hand).

  • LhayeS37

    OR ELSE CALLED OUT AS VERY STUPID

  • RaiderRetribution

    Raiders need to run, run, run, and run some more to defeat the Chargers.

    At least 40 rushhing attempts, even if we are only getting a 3 yard per carry average.

  • raiderlaker1980

    @retribution———

    please I really hope we are done trading, we don’t need trades, we need a GM and a plan to build this team through the draft, and that plan MUST start in the trenches on both sides. Until we do that, unfortunately we will all be an unhappy bunch, because the same crap will continue to happen

    I don’t know, the loss of Henderson is HUGE.

    I hate to say it, but bringing in Fat Albert would be a smart move at this point. But that would be Shanny doing us a favor. Don’t know if he would bite.

    Gannon was a great QB, get over it.

  • Glutten for Punishment

    why dont we trade our 2012 1st for a real run stopper?

  • raiderlaker1980

    Raiders(ahem Al) have to get out of the fog and realize they are not a player or two away from contention with the big boys. They are an offensive and defensive line away from respectability…but hey after the last 7 years, we have to start somewhere

    ++++++++++++

    That would be nice…a GM…who hires a HC…and then they work together to hire assistant coaches that will implement the HCs philosophies…and then they work together to draft players that fit into those philosophies…and then they are given time to make it all work.

    KC is doing just that….we will never do that as long as Al is around.

  • raiderlaker1980

    LA…

    agree the loss of Big John is huge, but at what cost to building the rest of this roster? The track record on Al making trades shows he’ll give up far too much to acquire Haynesworth. Look at what the value of veteran players is around the league, and look at what our team gives up for vets…can’t see it being worth it in the end IMHO

    If that’s true, it’s not wonder we’re one of the worst teams in the league. My goodness.

  • Ryan

    Here’s a conspiracy for you, the season after the great Al Davis passes through to the other side of the Black Hole, the Raiders get every call and break there way from the refs and dominate. This would be the NFL’s last slap in Al’s face.

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    Al would rather hire 3-4 coordinators to run a 4-3…and then force the DC to run the D a certain way, and then patchwork an o-line together so that Al can continue drafting DBs and fast guys…that can’t catch….and then put immobile QBs that can throw 75 yards…if they had 6 seconds in the pocket…but they never do behind the garbage o-line…

    Just a vicious circle.

    Back in the day, before the internet, Ron Wolf was on trains & buses all over the back-roads of this country finding the Art Shells from Eastern Maryland, The Gene Upshaws from Texas A&T, the George Atkinsons from Morris Brown, etc.

    Now, I guess Al Davis thinks he can just get up at 3pm, have somebody get him on the internet, and pick players according to 40-times, Ht-WT. He’s no more than a bad FF player.

    That’s the only way a 81 yr old can do it.
