McFadden has groin injury, Huff a concussion, Johnson a hamstring

Raiders coach Hue Jackson just revealed that star running back Darren McFadden left the game late in the fourth quarter with a groin injury.
Jackson didn’t provide a timetable for how long McFadden might be sidelined or the severity of the injury. However, a short time later McFadden said that his groin just tightened up on him and that he expects to be fine.
That’s welcome news to the Raiders faithful, who are growing accustomed to McFadden dominating games and realize his value to the team’s overall success.
Against the New York Jets on Sunday, McFadden rushed for a game-high 171 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught three passes for 7 yards.
If McFadden can’t play against the New England Patriots next Sunday, rookie Taiwan Jones and veteran Michael Bush would get added work.
In other news, Jackson said that free safety Michael Huff suffered a concussion and cornerback Chris Johnson hurt a hamstring. Both players left the game early on and never returned.
Off to write a lengthy post off the Raiders’ impressive 34-24 victory before a sold-out crowd in the home-opener at the Coliseum.

    Sure. Just Win Baby. Just like when Gruden asked for a contract he deserved. Enjoy this show while it lasts. Because it won’t last long. Al Davis has proven that he puts his own agenda above winning.

    Whazz up my brothers from the north. Looks like it’s going to be a So Cal / No Cal battle for the AFC West. I’ll give you guys some props. Getting better. But you still won’t be able to handle what Phillip is bringing to the table. Rivers are going to be running wild through the Raider secondary.

    There were a few teams that donned throwbacks today. . .

    Notice Rex didn’t disrespect the Raiders by coming out as the Titans. . .

    as MCClain goes, so goes ths defense…
    ==========================================
    True…he’s gotta get more consistent.

    But I he does have command of the defense…like how he gets guys lined up etc….

    But he has got to work on his tackling….

    Did you see Hue clutching his head during the final review of the Jet TD.
    The dude was freaking out. Not to be confused with “geeking” out like the coach that isn’t a loser anymore was known to do.

    We will beat your sorry a##es like a gong. Back to the disco with you fool.

  • EMRaiders

    Gruden was a hell of a coach, and Davis should have paid him, and that was a bad move by Davis. Honestly, I think that started this 10 year curse we have been on. Ironically, we get Hue, another good coach so far, to break the curse. It’s almost poetic.

    Also I think Al learned from that move the moment the Raiders stepped on the field against the Bucs on that superbowl. It wasn’t Gannon’s fault, Gruden knew every play the Raiders ran from the moment the teams took the field.

    But enough about that. That was 10 years ago. This is now. And now it is sweet.
    GO RAIDERS!!!

  • raiderkoolaid

    Campbell played great. He led the team to 34 points, didn’t turn the ball over, and won the game. He made the plays needed to win the game. His 11 yard run to get the last drive started when The Jets had just scored to pull within 7 was brilliant too. The defense came up with some big plays, but I sure would hate to put it in their hands to have to win the game. When the game was on the line the offense came through by running the Jets out of time outs and moving the ball into possition for the field goal giving them a two score lead.

  • http://ibabuss.com antispy3

    I know the Giants won today, but did you see Boss seal the edge consistently today?

    DVD should be able to return next week. Combined with Chekwa the down the road potential.

    Jets ran lotsa 9′s, 7′s & variations. The Pats run more short & intermediate routes. Different cover set. Hope the kids are up to the task.

    NE should have Hernanzez, so that will help them.

    DMAC’s groin withstanding, ‘Soup will get plenty attempts in the passing game. If Ford &/or Murphy return it will allow the Raiders to successfully employ a spread pachage. That could throw the Pats off. Wonder if Haynesworth will be a participant. Chung should. . .gotta display they’ve learned from the Bills game. . .Raiders beat them 3 outta four times! Just not this year. . .

    Nice pick of the Jets to win today, Sullivan! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    Tony Dungy said the Raiders performance was the most impressive of the day. Rodney Harrison openly display disatisfaction.

    Wait until he has to eat serious crow after next week’s game. . .

  • Raidervill

    HUGE win for the Silver & Black. Things you have to like.
    – The Oline kicking but in the running game and keeping JC clean. Veldheer/Wiz will anchor the left side for years. Very impressive showing against a tough, well coached Jets D.
    – The NFL is a right now league and right now DMac is the best RB in the league. A threat to got the distance at any time. Catch, block, run inside, run over, run away…the dude is special.
    – First down pass to DHB in Denver. Bomb to Moore in Buffalo. Beautiful touch pass to Bush today in 4th. JC making plays in crunch time every game. Light years ahead of last year.
    – 2nd stringers making just enough plays in the secondary to win the game. Chekwa could be a player.
    – Dline was not consistent, but changed the game in the 3rd Qtr. Dominated action by getting to Sanchez and putting the hurt on him.
    – Denarius Moore…simply a play maker. Can’t wait to see him and Ford together.
    – Way to show up Raider Nation, huge home field advantage.
    – Hue got his guys believing. The effort was intense. Keep in going against the Pats.

    One Nation Baby…

  • JohnnyRaider

    It is time to really shake up this horrible defense by cutting a few players. Get rid of CJ, bring S Moore from practice squad and use him as cb, he is better than DVD and Chekwa. Bring in Lito Sheppard and some one else from free agency to cover db and also look for linebackers. If we are to be contenders need to build strong defense. Get Mike Singletary to replace Chuck B.

    **********************************

    sounds like sullivan is admitting al davis has built a winner yet again. now he’s hoping for something bad to happen in the future, maybe 3 or 4 years from now. in the meantime, he’ll be sitting alone in the dark a lot, talking to himself, and thinking the eighbor’s dog is out to get him.

    i am pretty sure al davis f*cked his mom.

  • Gerard

    Can u believe Colts are tied with Pitt.?

  • rob_raider

    now for the pats.

    their defense is not good. their run game is so-so. they will likely try to pass 50 times. so our gameplan will probably be to run, run, run, and strike deep a few times. control the ball. run clock. keep the ball out of brady’s hands. score every time we have the ball.

    one of two of these:

    pats 31 raiders 27

    raiders 41 pats 24

    One things for certain, the fact Nnamdi is on your team does NOT guarantee you’re gonna win.

    Some “dream team”. 1-2.

  • MiamiRaider78

    I called Chimdi coming in for DVD and thank God he stepped up. Next man up! Excited for the boys,albeit we have more work to do on D.

  • rob_raider

    i have a feeling the raiders pass rush might beat brady up a bit.

    Some of the negativity from the Raiders fans in here makes me sick. You guys can’t even enjoy a victory? Sad, sad people. If your running games goes over 200+ yards in a victory, your QB doesn’t have to have a 300+ yard game and 3 TDs. This is the NFL not Madden 2012. Campbell had great stats vs. the Bills and we lost. What’s more important? A win or great QB stats? Team effort. McFadden our MVP. Denarius Moore our Rookie of the Year. Defense bend but don’t break. We got a lot of injuries, but we’re sucking it up. Not giving in! Like to get Jacoby Ford and Mike Mitchell back in there. Hopefully, the Bills softened up the Pats for us next week! Code Black!

  • anhdazman

    Yes, Sanchez made a run at it at the game. I wouldn’t say he was 6 inches from a TD. More like a FOOT LONG HOT DOG from the Goal Line.
    I’m so glad we didn’t bring Cromatie into Oakland, he is garbage.
    Revis, don’t even go there, all respect for that guy, he blanketed any and all Oakland receivers. Nnamdi is still 2nd best to that Freak of nature.
    Another rookie find in Chimdi Chekwa?

    Revis played good but he was all over DHB at least two times w/no flagged thrown, and that was only when the camera was focused on him, but I do agree that Chekwa is a find.

  • marios

    Why should Campbell throw for 250 plus when you get those 250 out of your running game? And also about McClain, the rush Defense has played pretty good except for last week’s second half and we all used to say that McClain should make the calls to improve the Run D. Well thats mainly his job. Yeah he missed a couple of tackles but he is a second year pro without a second offseason to improve

    Ok guys…and girls..let us put win in a perspective. Now,I am Raider fan since birth, and I would bet I have seen more Raider games, and teams, here, there and on the road than anyone on here. It was a big win. Campbell played so-so. Not just in a statistical sense, but he was throwing poorly. He would have had over 200 yards passing, he just was off. He was. He was much more on target against buffalo, and without that awful second half by the D, the Raiders not only own the division, but the conference.

    What I saw was two teams going at each other with gusto…It certainly wasn’t great football on either side, but it was tough football. I think between the two teams, 50 or 60 penalty flags could have been thrown. But, the lack of any deep game hampered the Raiders. These guys could not get separation at all. DHB is pretty useless.

    You can say how good the Jets are, but, this week it’s going to be a Patriot team that is just as good as last year and angry. There can be no ebb and flow. The Raider D does not have it to contain an elite team. Out of position, lack of consistent tackling….Doesn’t bode well. Let’s just hope they get some coherent schemes for the secondary, because they are going to need it.
