WR/KR Jacoby Ford back working on kick returns

Jacoby Ford spent most of his first day back working on getting back in the swing of playing wide receiver. On Thursday, he added kick return to his workload.
Ford missed the past two games with a hamstring strain. He returned the bulk of the kicks in practice today, as Nick Miller, Denarius Moore and Taiwan Jones looked on.
Toward the end, Jones returned a kick. Ford returned kicks in the regular-season opener. Miller replaced him against the Buffalo Bills. Jones handled the role against the New York Jets.
Raiders coach Hue Jackson said Wednesday that he will consider using Ford on kicks against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Jones is the logical candidate to return kicks if Jackson opts against taxing Ford in his first game back.

Free safety Michael Huff is at practice for the second straight day. That bodes well for his playing Sunday and not being bothered anymore by the concussion he suffered against the Jets.

Fullback Marcel Reece (ankle), defensive end Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder), wide receiver Louis Murphy (groin/hamstring), linebacker Ricky Brown (concussion) and cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring) also are not at practice.
As of now, it appears a long-shot that Reece, Murphy and Johnson will be healthy enough to play Sunday. Brown won’t be cleared to practice until he passes the mandatory tests for players who suffer a concussion. Shaughnessy’s status is uncertain.

Three officials are presiding over practice once again. They have been out here for the Wednesday and Thursday practices the past three weeks on the heels of the Raiders committing 15 penalties in their first game.
Some might say the added attention is paying off. The Raiders cut down that figure to eight against the Bills and seven against the Jets.

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for Septempber.
He tied the NFL record with a 63-yard field goal against the Broncos. He also had a 54-yarder off the dirt against the Jets.
Janikowski is the only player in NFL history with two field goals of 60 yards or longer. His first one came against the Cleveland Browns in 2009, when he connected from 61 yards.
In somewhat of a shocker, Moore wasn’t even considered for AFC Offensive Rookie of the Month despite two impressive games.

    I heard that Wauffel didn’t want the DC job…he wanted to concentrate on the D Line. Who knows…
    *********************
    Correct sir. Wauffle declined the DC position in favor of concentrating on the DLine.

    We need our playmakers on the field : Ford , Moore , Boss,Reese(if healthy) Hagen and DHB to clear out And Taiwan Jones with DMC they can’t cover everyone .
    ========
    I’m predicting a big game from Boss. He’s had 2 full weeks of practice now. Will see plenty of time on the field.

    With Ford on KOs I feel more confident in the return game than Miller returning

    I doubt if Mitchell sees the field this weekend. Maybe limited snaps but he wont see any real work. Guys been out for 2 months, he needs some time to get back into game shape.

    —”Aaron Hernandez (knee) missed practice again on Thursday. Hernandez’s return will have to wait one more week. Coach Bill Belichick doesn’t suit up players who don’t practice during the week”—

    So, 4 WR, 1FB, 2HB, 1TE, 1QB (JC) and 2 OL (Wiz@C/Veld?)… Despite being a highly illegal formation – I just don’t feel that would be effective…

  • MikieG

    The great thing about running a zone is that you can keep your eyes facing the line of scrimmage while in coverage as opposed to just turning your back and running with your guy…Easier to watch the QB and where he is looking and about to throw the ball, they actually get to see it released while in Zone..
    Easiest way to tell if a Defense is in Zone is everyone is looking at their guy, in a zone, everyone is watching the QB…

    DETROIT (AP) — Police may put the brakes on a party bus that was apparently operating as a Sunday strip club for reveling Lions fans at a popular tailgating spot in Detroit.

    Investigators believe fans tailgating before a recent Lions home game were allowed onboard the “Booty Lounge,” a large red and black bus replete with two stages, steel dancing poles, tinted windows and even a smoke machine

    I hope I don’t get caught in rush hour traffic after work and miss the 3:30 Moore chat… (central time)

    I really hate the fact that brady just gets a freakin’ hair cut and it’s front page news. What media darling, diva cry baby. I really hope the Raiders ruin the season for him – he’s done it to us at least once, and a decade of total crap that came later. This would be a huge win for us and would really tell the world we are back!

    I know one thing about the Patriots…you start treating Brady like a ragdoll and they quit..Dude hates to get hit, pouts when he does and the whole team goes in the tank..
    Our team will be totally dependent on our defense to get some bone crushing hits on Brady..if we can get some pressure up the middle in his face, and pound his a$$ into the ground for a few sacks or incomplete passes, these guys will tuck tail and cry about it all the way back to Foxboro…
    Print it..

    Yep…need to fugg brady up early and often…

    Being from San Mateo, I was always a big Raiders fan. I honestly thought Al Davis was going to draft me in 2000, but I guess my 40 time wasn’t fast enough. At the time they had Bobby Hoying backing up Rich Gannon. He (Davis) might be the best talent scout in pro football, but he passed on me. I thought it would be cool to wear silver & black. I’m ready to prove Mr. Davis wrong by passing for 500 yards and 5 touchdowns this Sunday.

    Kirk,

    Bill Belichick has been the Pats HC since 2000.

    at that point we still had Jon Gruden as HC and we all know he did a bang up job.

    We could have plucked him from the Jets coaching staff in 1998. Is that what you’re suggesting?

  • Sullivan44

    I don’t think Belichick would have actually taken a job here.
