Asomugha unsure if he’ll face Steelers


Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha spent his bye week at the club facility rehabbing and said he doesn’t know if he’ll ready to to face the Steelers Sunday in Pittsburgh.

“I don’t know yet, but I’m moving around so that’s fine _ that’s good,” Asomugha said Monday during an open locker room session with the media.

Asomugha said his injury wasn’t the dreaded “high” ankle sprain which can take several weeks to heal, but noted, “it wasn’t high, but it wasn’t normal. I sprained it both ways, inside and out . . . so it was pretty serious.”

Initially, Asomugha was concerned about the rest of the season.

“I was pretty worried when it happened because I hadn’t felt that type of pain before,” Asomugha said. “Then they said there were no bone breaks or anything like that so I felt better. But it’s the most significant injury that I’ve had since my rookie year. Anything that forces me to miss a game is something that I think is serious.”

Asomugha said he didn’t know if he would practice Wednesday . . .

    This Raiders team has done NOTHING but change it’s attitude to this point. Show me the Playoffs, and THEN the season will be a success. Do something in the Playoffs, and the season will be a great success.

    However…there’s nothing cocky about recognizing good things as they’re happening:

    Cable & Staff = Good job so far
    Defense = Good job so far
    Offense = Good job so far
    Special Teams = Good job so far

    Al Davis & Front Office = Great job putting it together, and having faith everyone’s hard work would pay-off.

    I think “collectively” they’re doing a great job…so far…but only the end o’ year results will really matter.

    But…hating Al Davis doesn’t mean he hasn’t done a great job as of late.
