RBs Bush, McFadden practicing; WR Murphy on the field, too

Wide receiver Louis Murphy is practicing for the first time in more than two months. He hurt his groin and hamstring Aug. 1, missed the next two weeks or so and then underwent surgery to repair the damage.
He has missed all four of Oakland’s regular-season games while recovering from an injury that Murphy and the Raiders hoped would keep him out of action for only one game.
Murphy’s potential return Sunday against the Houston Texans brings about the prospect of how to use the wide receivers, now that all six are healthy enough to play.
Murphy was Oakland’s top-producing receiver each of the past two seasons. The Raiders since have added rookie Denarius Moore and veteran Derek Hagan, both of whom have been productive the first quarter of this season.
Also, third-year receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is fresh from a four-catch, 115-yard performance against the New England Patriots, and Jacoby Ford is back from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for two games.

Running backs Darren McFadden (groin) and Michael Bush (ankle) are practicing and showing no signs of any lingering effects from their injuries. That bodes well for their playing against the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring), defensive end Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder), fullback Marcel Reece (ankle), tight end Ricky Brown (concussion) and tight end Richard Gordon (hand) are not practicing today.
All are questionable for the Texans game at this point.

Moore and Ford split time on punt-return duties in the early portion of practice. Moore replaced Nick Miller in that capacity last Sunday. Ford has not returned a punt in a regular-season game duing his two-year NFL career.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is working out off to the side, while his teammates work in full-team drills. He has one game left in his five-game suspension.
Pryor is eligible to join the Raiders in practice and games beginning Monday. The Raiders will be forced to add him to their 53-man roster at some point. It’s likely that the Raiders will receive a brief window before they have to activate him so that Pryor can get up to speed.
It’s anyone’s guess as to which player will be released to make room for Pryor on the 53-man roster. At this point, the leading candidate would be rookie defensive back Ron Parker.

    Mcclain isn’t a bust yet but he also isn’t doing much to prove he’s not a bust. He doesn’t seem to play very tough either. He’s out of position more than not. Maybe it’s Bresnahan or maybe Rolo just doesn’t get it. Perhaps another players should be calling the defensive calls out there. If anyone is qualified to critique a LB it’s Romanowski. I don’t think Houston is all that either.

    “Rolando McClain, I don’t see him,” Romanowski said on CSN. “He’s 6-4, 255. Make some plays. I want to see the guy knock the crap out of some people. Be around the football.”

    IMO, DHB is going to make himself great not Hue. Hard work and exremely gifted. The DHB haters need to take the glue away from their noses. DHB and Moore are our 2 best receivers. I wouldn’t be shocked if Chaz or Hagan gets dumped for Pryor. At this point I would prefer Chaz, which is really sad. I think he’s blown his opportunity with the injuries If CJ is Megatron, Moore is Optimus Prime.

    ——————————————
    All of a sudden anybody who may think DHB is the fourth best WR on the team is a hater. We just don’t want the dude starting, that’s all. Let Hue and Davis work the project without jeopardizing wins.

    Chris… last year… teams would only put up certain amount of points and then coasted to the finish…. the offense is a lit better this season. … putting more pressure on opposing offenses to score more… last season we couldn’t beat anyone outta our division…. the defense needs to improve. . I think we will.. but we need to get healthy… CJ still the best corner we have opposite routte. .

    Last year we were averaging about 25 ppg. You could make that argument about the pass D being overrated in years past when we were averaging about 11 ppg, but that wasn’t the case in 2010.

    we have been running the same defense forever, and the only common thread is Al Davis. It has been said that Al meddles much more in the D than the O. John MArshall said after he blitzed the Raiders to victory over the eagles that he would probably get in trouble for his D plan that day, but he did not care.

  • JR77

    if McClusterFck ever confronts Romo he would whiff with a couple of haymakers (See the attempted tackle on LT) and hit nothing but air at which point Romo will unwind and connect square on the jaw and that will be all she wrote….

  • raiderlization

    Truth be told it all depends on the set that Hugh wants to run. If we are Running the ball DHB,Schillings,Murphy are good Blockers as well as tall Wr’s. Moore and Ford are similar in talent and are gonna be ruffed up throughout the season due to their size and speed on purpose to slow them down!

  • 1eyedpirate

    McClain is getting absorbed by opposing offensive lines and when he is close to making a play he is way out of position and takes bad angles due to his over pursuing….his fellow outside linebackers aren’t helping at all… Wimbley has dissappeared, and groves lost his mojo after week 1….. Our defense looks dazed and confused and couldn’t even make an adjustment on Welker this last game…. They knew what Brady was gonna do coming into the game and just never adjusted properly…. Our defense is horrible thru 4 games…. Looks like bad coaching all the way and u can’t hide that when blown coverage and gaping holes are a trend with this defense… Offensivley, our recievers have stepped up compared to last year…. The line looks great….. The only problem I see is Campbell…. He is indecisive and holds onto the ball for too long and it showed up big time last week…. He doesn’t throw too many picks but he doesn’t throw touchdown passes all that much neither…. Campbell better start to let it fly and not stand there like a tight wad…. I’m losing faith slowly in this guy…. I hope , if campbell can’t get the job dOne this year look for Pryor to start a couple of games at the end of the year….

    Q, Raiders 38, Texans 24, mark it!

  • raiderlization

    I agree and think Pryor will get Campbell motivated once he has a chance to “Throw” to these targets! WR’s and TE’s he dreamed of throwing to with RB’s to boot! You guy’s don’t realize how many plays J.C. “Fails” to recognise and if Pryor wants some attention all he has to do is earn it in practice completing passes and making Al’s old Edsel run!

    The DHB thing again, did you guys read what I wrote. dont’ let stats mislead you. He regressed, but he has improved. His routes are choppy strides, indicating he is breaking down about to cut. How often have you seen him create separation? Not often. A WR needs two things, hands and separation. His fly routes are poorly disguised, but killing his confidence is not helping. Al Davis and his draft control is the problem. Let the scouts draft, let Al listen more. As for McClain, he needs to play with anger, screw his assignment in the run game and seek the ball. He is content to occupy a blocker, doesn’t shed the guy or even make him pay for blocking him. Watch game tape, McClain often goes to the blocker and turns a shoulder, make the guy’s job easier. That, I don’t get. Who does he think is behind him, Jack Tatum? No, its freakin’ Giordiano, or a slightly built Huff. Romac needs to attack the line of scrimmage and extend his hands to control the blocker, then disengage and still make the tackle. It’s called stack and shed.

  • sirblitzalot

    What are you guys talking about? Bill Romanowski is intense! He never pulls punches! I hated his guts, until he became a Raider. Now, the dude bleeds Silver and Black. He wants nothing more than for this team to succeed. He ain’t afraid of you, me, Rolando, or anybody. If Rola demonstrated the passion of Romanowski, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Romo trained like a mad man and he played “balls out” football, everytime he was on the field. He was an awesome Raider. His name was frequently mentioned, no matter what team he played for. The dude worked his body consistently, with the dedication and focus of a Jerry Rice (Raider version). The dude has passion for life and especially for the Raiders. He couldn’t hit like Jack Tatum but he left everything on the field; and he made a difference when he got on the field. Rolondo needs to PUT UP, not just SHUT UP! (whoever heard of a rookie not addressing the media?). And what the heck was he doing baby sitting in the Raiders locker room? What was that all about? Respect is earned, and too often Rolando is missing in action. Pile driving the diminutive Sprolls, after the whistle, is not a commendable act. He needs to blow somebody up closer to his own size, in the process of stopping a run. He is the middle linebacker, for crying out loud! Beikert wasn’t a superstar like Rola, but he was in on a lot of plays every game! Romo is just calling Rola out! He complemented Rolondo on his intellect and speed, etc. He just pointed out the Rolo is missing in action and he needs to represent! Just “Make a Play”!!! Is that too much to ask? Don’t be so freaking sensitive, like an over-protective mother. And don’t expect Houston to play Rola’s mommy, and go after Romo, Rolando has to be a “game changer”. He has to do this consistently or the Raiders are going to fade into mediocrity (again). Who the heck picked Rolando McClain. Looks like the guy is not panning out!

    If Rolando were to fight Romo, he would win… He better win! He is supposed to win! He is in a total different weight division. Like he and Sprolls. So what? The real issue is, can Rola be MLB! he was projected to be!? Can he play with passion and win some games for us? You guys are such stupid insecure idiots!! Just Win Baby!!!

  • sirblitzalot

    And another thing: Regarding DHB.
    He is improving, making catches, that’s wonderful. But DHB is still “developing” into a wide receiver. DANARIUS MOORE IS a PHENOMINAL FOOTBALL PLAYER. He and Ford are our #1 and #2 most reliable receiver but D. MOORE is going to be this generation’s Tim Brown. He has GREAT HANDS, EXCELENT SPEED and PHENOMINAL FOOTBALL INSTINCTS. He and Ford will NOT get “WARN DOWN” by the end of the season. The new rules of “no roughing up receivers after 5 yards” is why they will be just as effective at the end of the season as they will be in the upcoming quarter. The QB is the general on the field. He gets to check down to the receiver he feels has the best chance to catch the ball. He loves D. MOORE because he just has to throw it in the vicinity of D. MOORE and he will make the phenomenal plays. Plays that make the QB rating go up. Plays that DHB could NEVER make! All this ink and talk wasted on a mediocre big receiver DHB is rhetorical, at best. When this offense gets to clicking, the defense will not be as much a factor. Hu Jack can rotate Murphy on run plays so he block down field. (He does that well… but don’t call his number in the clutch!). Look at where N.E. was when they beat the Raiders. They are near the cellar on pass and run defense. So don’t get lost in the stats crap. Three plays (two unforced errors and one cheating call) and we would have won that game!

  • Teabag

    DHB still sucks….even a broken clock is wrong twice a day.

  • jameyt777

    1. Raiders need to spread the field in the red zone (no more conservative play calling), and that means DMC cannot be on the sidelines. Never abandon the RUN!

    2. Whoever is the best receiver for Houston should always be covered by Stanford Routt or Michael Huff if he’s healthy.

    3. Get to Schaub with safety and LB blitzes consistently.

    4. Don’t settle for field goals on 4th and short yardage.

    5. Pass downfield to Denarious Moore!

    6. Rolando McClain needs to be a spy and when the D shifts one way he should always be watching the other side for a play. Oh and wrap up tackles at the legs, not the upper body.

    7. Destroy the Texans, take no prisoners….

    8. RAIDERS!
