Wisniewski, Seymour and Mitchell still out; C.J. returns to practice

Left guard Stefen Wisniewski, defensive tackle Richard Seymour, safety Mike Mitchell and wide receivers Chaz Schilens and Louis Murphy were among those who weren’t at practice Tuesday.
Wisniewski was in uniform but not taking part in drills. He has a wrap on his right knee, though it’s uncertain what the nature of his injury is or if coach Hue Jackson just opted to give him a day off.
Seymour was out of practice Friday in Napa. but he wasn’t injured, according to Jackson. Seymour also sat out the Raiders game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night with what Raiders play-by-play announcer Greg Papa described as a hamstring injury.
More later, when we have access to Jackson after practice.
On the bright side, cornerback Chris Johnson and defensive tackle John Henderson returned to practice after lenghty absences. Johnson was doing everything asked of the other defensive backs before media access ended at 11:45 a.m. He underwent surgery for an undisclosed injury about 10 days ago.
Henderson has been bothered by a sore foot for part of training camp. He is being counted upon to be a key part of Oakland’s defensive line rotation.
Other players who weren’t at practice: receiver Shawn Bayes, tight end Kevin Boss, fullback James McCluskey, safety Zac Etheridge, cornerback Jeremy Ware, linebackers Sam Williams, Chris Francis and Bruce Davis II, and guard Roy Schuening.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor was in uniform and taking part in the quarterback drills for the second time since he joined the Raiders on Friday. Jackson said it’s possible that Pryor will play against the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night.

  • priesttj

    Jhill please man I didn’t say he wasn’t part of the problem. Listen to what I’m saying ………..all players have strengths and weaknesses there are no perfect players or not many they key to playing defense is put players in position to utilize their strengths. A QB like Drew Brees will slice up the best safeties when he’s on he’s extremely hard to stop no matter how great your secondary is. That team has been together for 5 years they went to a SB and won it for a reason. To expect a secondary thrown together to stop that offense is ridiculous………….that is MY POINT.

    Take the butt whuppin and move on man and get better. We were missing a starting corner and playing a rookie what the hell do you expect???

    Come on man please let’s deal in reality it’s preseason thye’re trying to put the defense together now and to go against an experienced team like NO is NOT EASY.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Drew Brees was not the reason the Saints lost to the Seahawks in the playoffs last year. Elizabeth’s brother-in-law was.

    Yeah, I was rooting for Edwards early on, but he’s looked pretty bad so far. It would be interesting to see how he does with the starting offense, but that is never going to happen.

    OAKLAND FINDS A GEM IN TAIWAN JONES
    The rookie running back could play a significant role for the Raiders this season.
    -Wes Bunting

    There were a number of questions surrounding former Eastern Washington standout Taiwan Jones when he declared early for the 2011 NFL draft.

    1. With a playing weight during the 2010 season of around 170-pounds, does he have the physical make-up to hold his own in the NFL?

    2. Will he check out medically, coming off a fractured left foot that forced him to miss the final game of his junior season?

    3. Could he add more girth/size to his frame and still maintain the type of dynamic straight-line speed that made him such an intriguing prospect?

    Talking to scouts leading up to the NFL draft there were two trains of thought concerning Jones as an NFL running back. The first was that there simply aren’t many productive backs at the NFL level that measure in a six feet tall and play under 200-pounds.

    The second was that this guy possessed the talent needed to become a dynamic sub-package type option who could create big plays for an offense when you get him in space.

    And after watching him in his first NFL action Sunday night, he looks to be the latter of those two opinions. Jones was quick to press the hole, displayed good patience allowing blocks to set up and then accelerated very quickly into the open field. He displayed the type of confidence in his first step where he didn’t simply need to outrun defenders to daylight in order to gain yardage. As he exhibited the type of vision/feel to calmly pick his way through traffic before exploding away from defenders and outpacing angles into the second level.

    And once he got into the open field he showcased the type of straight-line speed/second gear to be the type of big play threat the Raiders must have envisioned when they drafted him in April.

    Now, he’s still is a thinner back –despite his effort to get into the 190-195-pound range– who possesses a narrow frame and is going to struggle to break tackles inside and hold his own in blitz pick-up. However, the Raiders have a back who can be dynamic in space both on perimeter runs and catching the football out of the backfield.

    Jones should be a consistent part of the Raiders offense even as a rookie. In my view, he’s an ideal situational type back because of his ability to flip the field and be playmaker anytime he gets his hands on the football even if only given limited touches throughout a game.
