The Raiders won’t practice again until Saturday in Napa. They were given the day off today so that they could rest from last night’s exhibition game against the Arizona Cardinals. That doesn’t mean there isn’t any Raiders news to pass along.
Coach Hue Jackson will speak with the media via conference call at 5 p.m. At that time, he is expected to provide updates on the status of wide receiver Chaz Schilens and safety Hiram Eugene, both of whom suffered injuries against the Cardinals.
Eugene suffered a dislocated hip and had to be carted off the field. His injury appears to be far more serious than the right knee injury suffered by Schilens at the tail end of an end around.
Schilens was worked on by a team trainer for several minutes behind the Raiders bench. He spent the rest of the night sitting on the bench. He looked fine when he walked from the locker room to the field in the second half.
Beyond that, the Raiders didn’t have any players who suffered any obvious injuries. Who knows, though? We shall find out shortly from coach Jackson.
