Seymour not on field

Still no sign of defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who apparently will miss the entire week of practice with a hamstring strain and as a result is an unlikely participant in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts at the Coliseum.

Right tackle Langston Walker was present but not wearing a helmet. He was scheduled to take another test today to see if he would be cleared to play after sustaining a concussion against Denver. Shane Lechler was on the field but probably as a spectator.

The Raiders will probably determine Saturday if they need to activate Danny Baugher from the practice squad, either as insurance or if Lechler can’t kick.

More to come after Tom Cable briefs the media folloiwng practice . . .

    Raiders definately need to draft Pettis of Boise St., he is projected to be there as late as the 5th, but I do not see him lasting that long.

    I believe Kaepernick is a unpolished gem that will indeed be better then Moore. Kellen Moore is a great player and I dont take anyway from him but I just dont see him being a Franchise Qb….With Kapernick I see a Fiery kid who has a chance to be very good. The only thing that holds him back is the Pistol Offense and a sort of awkward delivery… Im not worried about the delivery becaeuse it was teh same problem Flacco had and is now fixed. A year behind a QB and a good OC and I think he can be a Viable Mobile Qb with a very strong accurate arm

    Michael Bush is definately going to get the $$$$!

  • PurpleDrank81

    Pettis wont make it anywhere near the 5th

  • RaiderRetribution

    Al will put the tender on him.

  • RaiderRetribution

    I agree purple- 3rd or 4th

  • PurpleDrank81

    Will be lucky if he drops to the 3rd..

    You cant pass on 71 catches 951 Yards and 10 TD’s

    WRs are so week in the NFL it seems there are alot of them, but very few top tier WRs.

    I truly have a gut feeling Cincy & Tencie are going to beatSD & KC = CJ & Benson are going to have huge games.

    I’ve seen quite a bit of Kaepernick and I’m still unsure if he can make it in the NFL.

    Real bad delivery. Way worse than JaJason’s. Very powerful arm but also very inconsistent accuracy. Seems to throw alot better when on the move. Excellent runner, not really elusive, but his top speed and long stride make him dangerous once he gets to the second level. Has definite issues with ball security, as evidenced by the Hawaii game this year, and some bonehead turnovers earlier in his career.

    Had high NFL hopes for Kaepernick after his Sophomore year, thought he was a poor man’s Vince Young. Thought he regressed somewhat his Junior year and bounced back again this year. Will be interested to see how he performs against a stout Boston College defense next week.

    As far as Moore goes — I’m convinced his arm strength is way better than people think. He threw some darts against Utah – and if you saw the bomb he threw that should have beat Nevada – that puppy was in the air 60+ yards and perfectly thrown – you’ve got to think his arm strength is more than adequate to play in the NFL. He’s got excellent accuracy. I think the real issues concerning his NFL viability are his size and ability to run and improvise when plays break down. He appeared confused by some of Utah’s defensive schemes and threw into coverage when pressured. A cause for alarm but something good coaching can fix too.

    Both of these guys will probably be there for the Raids if they decide to draft a QB.

    Wouldn’t mind taking a flyer on either one.
