Asomugha unsure if he’ll face Steelers

Share

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 . . .

More to come . . .

    ……………..

    Yes, you did. And I’ll accept your apology in advance for accusing me of not “manning up” when I did so right away last Sunday.
    ————————
    saying it to keep others from dragging you through the mud isn’t the same as meaning it.
    you’ve done that before. then immediately go right back to the same comments.
    all designed to get someone to talk to you.
    you ever going to get a job? or are you still waiting for the state to spring for your bi-polar disability?

    You also stated Kiffin would win the suit, now your backing away from that statement a few years back.

    So for a guy who claims to be always right, you have some explaining to do.

    I know, it’s always somebody else’s fault, like luck, or some other flunky excuse you’ll give.

  • MR is getting SLAUGHTERED lmfao, what a d0uche bag…

  • RaiderRockstar

    LA,

    I never said Nnamdi sucks. I know he’s a good player

    in my opinion, DB’s are dime a dozen with a solid pass rush. the Raiders have that

    CJ37 & Routt can get it done on Sunday. Huff & Branch are ready to rock. Our front seven on Defense is stuffing the run as good as any other team competing for a playoff spot.

    Ware, Mitchell & Brown as reserves are average at the very least. good enough to catch a high floater after Seymour shoves Big Ben’s faskmask in the dirt

    A year ago, Pittsburgh was 6-2 before a five-game losing streak destroyed what had started out as a promising season.

    ************************

    MR, I thought you said “good” teams rarely loos 2 in a row.

    ………………….

    They do. Good teams rarely lose 2 in row. What you brought up is an “EXCEPTION”. Notice I said “RARELY”. I never said that good teams don’t ever lose 2 in a row. I said they rarely do. And it’s true.

    Tom Cable is swinging an iron sledge…forged of draft picks, trades, and free agent acquisitions made by the great Al Davis.

    While the MR’s/KK’s of the world were taking shots at Al, he was doing as good a GM job as any executive in the NFL the past two seasons.

    Tom Cable is head coach of the NFL’s most resurgent TEAM…because he has helped build the team concept that we so woefully lacked.

    Tom Cable is a survivor. He has survived some of the most tumultuous years in NFL coaching history…and he has gained the trust and respect of his players, coaches, and even if we may not hear it right now, of The Man himself.

    Al Davis is a redeemer. Al is the Great Redeemer. if there’s a guy who can be saved, or a career that can be prolonged…Al’s not afraid to take the chance.

    Cable has done such a good job, even when the team was struggling out of the gate there were no fingers being pointed, or talk of coach-hate like there is in Minnesota right now.

    Cable might be one of Al’s greatest saves. If he is, he’ll be HC of the Raiders for a long time coming.

  • PassTheCheetos

    Seriously people giving props to cj37 and bagging on nnamdi. Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever maybe they dont remember the chargers game. Look at that tape cj37 got burned repeatedly.

    LOL. OK!

    I was obviously wrong, totally wrong, in the most evil way, in predicting Kiffin would win in arbitration, too. Crucify me!

    But can’t I still question the arbitrator? It’s insane. Al Davis admitted more than once in his press conference that he was really firing Kiffin for performance.

    Before I go, how can you prove that, “There are plenty of people on this blog who can contest I am who I say I am.” quotes Jimmy.

    You can’prove anything, that’s what you say to all of us RMR on this blog, when we catch you lying and using another name to justify your position as someone else on this blog, instead of the infamous Real Madden Raider.

    It’s all good, your a main staple on here, I actually think your funny and a committed Raider. So don’t press to hard, and don’t defend your actions, you have earned the right to be hated. Just like Davis, two peas in a pod, right.

    Afternoon Fellas,

    Good to see the Raiders playing a meaningful game on Sunday.

    Let’s Hope the meaningful games last until January.

    Our O Line will determine the outcome of this game.

    I expect our D Line to do their thing.

    If Our O Line opens up some holes, and protects Campbell, we will Win.

    Keep Nnamdi, unless We get value in trade.

    Posted by Michael David Smith on November 15, 2010, 4:41 PM EST
    Jeff Reed’s bad game in Pittsburgh Sunday night could be his last.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Pittsburgh is contemplating cutting Reed, the kicker whom the Steelers used the franchise tag to retain during the offseason.

    The Steelers will bring in kickers for workouts on Tuesday, and if one of them is impressive enough, Reed will be out of work.

    On Sunday Reed missed a 26-yard field goal against the Patriots and complained afterward about the fans, the media and the turf at Heinz Field.

    ………………

    Al’s doing a fine job right now. But do you really want to get this cocky? You’re acting as if the Raiders just won the Super Bowl. They won 3 straight. It’s big. I for one said Al would never do it again. So far, about all the Raiders have accomplished is winning 3 straight and proving a lot of naysayers wrong. I think it might be a bit soon, however, to start giving out awards and thank yous, as if we’re hoisting the Lombardi on the 50 yard line after the Super Bowl. Relax, buddy. There’s a lot of season left. We’re playing good football, but as Gruden would always say when he was here, and was asked about the success, “We have a long, LONG way to go”.
