Miller to return punts

Share

Nick Miller was apparently more healthy than Johnnie Lee Higgins or won a game of rock-paper-scissors.

With Higgins inactive today against Denver, Miller is the likely punt return specialist.

Other Raiders inactives are rookie cornerbacks Walter McFadden and Jeremy Ware, running back Michael Bennett, linebacker Bruce Davis, guard Daniel Loper and guard Bruce Campbell. J.T. O’Sullivan is the third quarterback.

Inactives for Denver are kicker Matt Prater, safety Brian Dawkins, running back Laurence Maroney, cornerback Cassius Vaughn, offensive lineman Eric Olsen, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker David Veikune.

Kyle Orton is the third quarterback, meaning his ribs are enough of an issue where he can’t play, as opposed to being used as an excuse to start Tim Tebow. The backup quarterback, should Tebow be injured, is Brady Quinn.

    Anyone who thinks Bruce Campbell is going to start next year when he can’t even gain the trust of the coaching staff to block for extra points is insane.

  • ppleschamp030

    a pass rush will make even a supman mike vick look human. time to come out and hit tebow in the mouth. welcome to the NFL!!!!

  • Guy

    2 CBs inactive, are they injured?? I swear if I see another no corner 4 safety package I will throw up

  • Just Fire Baby

    Mike Vick is far from superman.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Is CJ37 even healthy??

    I guess they don’t think they need two many DB’s with Tebow and the rain.

  • Guy

    I guess that makes sense JFB, just hope Nnamdi doesn’t come off the field every other play with an injury leaving them w/o enough corners.

  • djohnnyg

    Philly is not done in this game.

    Beware the Vick!

  • djohnnyg

    Vick will “Vapo-rize” the Giants in the 4th.

  • mkyd1963

    Thanks, M LT & Guy

    Bookmarked them both.

    A GOOD SIGN: When NMiller plays, we win. He may take one back today given the weather and field conditions.

    Raiders need a defensive coordinator again.

    I am livid about that “5-safety” look

    What the F

  • djohnnyg

    Washington coming back on Dallas 30-22 now.

    Vick just underthrew a WIDE A$$ OPEN Maclin. Sure TD.

    Vick is getting reverse ‘Vapo-rized’.

    There’s a reason Marshall was not a hot prospect despite leading Seattle’s D to the Super Bowl.

  • djohnnyg

    NY is gonna “send the dogs” after Vick.

  • djohnnyg

    Are we all in agreement that if the Raiders lose today Cable should be history?

  • lefty12

    People complain about the 5-safety play but the safety who got burned was Huff who many say should be moved to CB.

    If u remember that long bomb, there WAS NO PASS RUSH either.

    Garrard could’ve pulled out a lawn chair, hooked up a TV and watched ‘Dances with Wolves’ and then got up and thrown the ball.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Did Hakeem Nicks play today?

  • A.B.P.

    What’s up guys?

  • Guy

    PD81, he got a TD

  • Nick Miller = victory

  • PurpleDrank81

    Thats a good thing…I need all I can get when it comes to Fantasy this week

    =======================================================
    I, for one, never believed that Huff was a CB. Regardless, they didn’t even give Huff any over the top help.

    Raiders find interesting ways to gift wrap games to the opponent

    RAMS SUCK

    Defense still struggles with giving up monster plays too.

    Last week was pretty much it.

    Unless you think San Diego is going to lose focus and throw a game against Denver or Cincy.

    All that hard work…thrown away by bad playcalling on defense

  • I was really hoping the Colts would lose today so they would have no motivation next week. I fear Peyton is going to carve up the Raiders.

  • Guy

    I think huff as been better as corner when hes in the receivers face. On that huge play, he was backed off the receiver big time.
