WR Schilens back on field, G Wisniewski returns to practice

Oft-injured wide receiver Chaz Schilens was spotted on the practice field a short time ago, in full uniform and going through agility drills with a trainer.
That represents progress for a player who has battled a slew of injuries since he joined the Raiders in 2008 as a seventh-round draft pick out of San Diego State.
Schilens suffered an injury Aug. 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on an end around. He missed the rest of that game and has not practiced since. Wednesday marked only the second time in three weeks that he has been seen working out, while his teammates practiced nearby.
The Raiders are counting upon Schilens to be one of their primary receivers this season, if not their No. 1 wide receiver. At this point, they would be thrilled just to have him healthy and available to play at any level in the regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos on Sept. 12.
Schilens has appeared in 29 of 48 games during his three-year NFL career. He missed eight games in 2009 and 11 last season. He has caught 49 passes for 631 yards and five touchdowns overall.
The emergence of veteran Derek Hagan and rookie Denarius Moore as viable options in the passing game lessens the importance of Schilens rushing back for the regular season. However, the Raiders still feel as if Schilens has the potential to be their top receiver at some point.

*Projected starting left guard Stefen Wisniewski was back at practice after missing one day with what coach Hue Jackson described as a “ding.”
Wisniewski has his right knee wrapped, though it’s unclear whether that is the source of his discomfort. He appeared to be moving around fine and ready to proceed with his quest to nail down a starting job his rookie season.

*Defensive tackle Richard Seymour is supposed to be healthy, according to Jackson, yet he was working off to the side during practice.
It’s more likely that he is working through a hamstring injury, which is what Raiders play-by-play announcer Greg Papa said is the reason for Seymour missing practice the past several days as well as last Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

*Tight end Kevin Boss (knee), linebacker Sam Williams (undisclosed), safety Mike Mitchell (knee), cornerback Jeremy Ware (ankle) and receiver Louis Murphy (hamstring/groin) also missed practice.

*The Raiders are at 80 players right now. Today marked the final full practice for the 26 players who will be cut, traded or placed on injured-reserve between now and Saturday afternoon, the deadline for teams to be at 53 players.
Rookie quarterback Terrelle Pryor won’t count against the roster as of Monday because he will be placed on the suspended list. The Raiders don’t have to account for him on their 53-man roster until he returns from his five-game suspension Week 6.

*Rookie undrafted linebacker Chris Francis also returned to practice after missing one day. He is a long-shot to make the 53-man roster but a solid candidate to be placed on the practice squad if he gets cuts and clears waivers.

*Remember to join the live chat with defensive tackle Tommy Kelly at 3:30 p.m. today. Feel free to submit questions and follow along as Kelly answers questions from viewers.

    MB doesn’t know what he’s talking about. That’s the bottom line. He’s another poor American who refuses to vote Democrat because he’s a racist (read: “purple lips”), and doesn’t want to huddle up with black people. He thinks that even though he doesn’t have a pot to pee in or a window to throw it out of, he’s still better than blacks. So he votes Republican, just to convince himself he’s better than a black person. And he spreads every single little b.s. piece of propaganda republicans put out. Like, blaming the environmental regulations for outsourcing. See, in order to believe something this stupid, you have to conveniently block out the glaring fact that companies can pay off shore labor pennies on the dollar. There’s no minimum wage job. A sane person not brainwashed by Republicans might think that would be a good reason businesses outsource. But of course, MB is not a sane mind. He’s a racist who’ll believe ANYTHING the Republicans say.

    JaMarcus struggled with the English language. I know he’s from Mobile and everything, but ol’ boy had trouble putting sentences together and the things that came out of his mouth, you’re like WTF? (shifting blame to everyone but himself).

    Pryor doesn’t have any of those issues. has been completely team-first from jump.

    lol. See what I mean? Read Mistic’s post about Gradkowski. When it comes to Campbell’s flaws, preseason doesn’t count. But now Gradkowski’s “HORRIBLE”…based on what he’s done in the preseason. lol. It never ends.
    ========================================

    Gradkowski raider,

    here are the pre season numbers side by side

    Jc 23 /33 69.7 comp % 290 yds qb rating 94.3 1td 1int

    scabs 16 /28 57.1 comp% 148 yds qb rating 56.8 0td 1int

    this is what scabs has been and always will be for his career. i have been telling you that for over a year now.

    JC won the gig because he is far better than scabs. JC has room to improve and is showing that he still has not reached a ceiling, yet scabs has already maxed and is bottoming out fast. the pre season numbers are just more proof that I was right and you were woefully off base.

  • LA to TheBay

    B,

    Yup. He’s gotta do it for 17+ weeks.

    You can’t always get the real meaning from a quote, you gotta see a person when they’re saying it. And I’m telling you, Soup looked like he was ready to break a foot off in someone’s @$$.

    Good for him.

    I think Hagan is another guy who could be a team leader. All business.

    It was one half of one preseason game, but I saw tremendous growth from JC. Nobody liked the pick but I’m glad he put the ball up there and tried to give his guy a chance at the end of the half.

    I saw a lot more decisiveness and confidence. Looks like him and Hagan are on the same page, too.

    Once we get our speed back on the field and we got Taiwan as a 3rd down specialist (as soon as he learns to block), that offense is gonna be explosive.

  • great big raider fan always

    The NFL loves and hates the Raiders. When the Raiders flourish, it is good business. Just look, a climb back up from 8 woeful years to go 8-8 and they are getting some prime time.

    If it wasn’t for the conspiracies to keep the Raiders down, the NFL probably would be better off today and could have perhaps avoided the lockout.

    =============================

    It is simple really.

    In washington, the coach that drafted was gone soon after, this left JC having to prove himself year after year, as they circulated coaches and offensive philosophies.

    JC is honest, and isnt able to fake swagger. Now that he has a firm grasp of the offense including audibles and teammates assignments he is able to be the natural leader that the qb has to be. It is not easy to tell people what to do when you are learning on the job.

    There are no clinton portis/ deangelo hall type on this team. JC wasnt able to truly lead in washington there were far too many distractions and locker room cancers sniping at each other in the locker room. With the mercurial yet clueless owner, jc was never on solid ground that you need to exude confidence and leadership.

    here in oakland he is the unquestioned leader and for the first time since auburn the team is his. he knows it, his play has vindicated the choice, and you will now see all of JC’s talent come to the fore front, including his ability to lead.

    JC will be fine. 2nd year in the same system will do wonders for JC. He looked pretty solid against the Saints. I don’t care if it was pre-season. It was still the starters against the starters. He moved the ball pretty well against the Saints D. Quit comparing Campbell to Gannon. Two different QB, two different styles. Gannon had a better o-line protecting him than JC does. It’s all about the o-line giving Campbell time and the recievers running precise routes and creating seperation. JC needs targets! Give the guy a break! I think Campbell is gonna be much improved from last year.

    =================

    1.) I have never said preseason doesnt count.

    2.) One missed opportunity in the pre season isnt indicative of who JC is as a qb. his career numbers particularly in the red zone demonstrate this beyond the shadow of a doubt.

    3.) scabs numbers are a continuation of his sorry career pattern. He stinks on ice
