Raiders have new cornerback; appears to be Sheppard

Monday, October 31st, 2011 at 12:43 pm in Oakland Raiders.

A player donning No. 21 is at practice right now. And, no, it isn’t Nnamdi Asomugha. However, it does appear to be veteran Lito Sheppard, who spent a little more than a week with the Raiders in training camp.

The Raiders have not announced the move, and none of the officials at practice would divulge the player’s name.
The need for a cornerback remains high, given Chris Johnson and Chimdi Chekwa are banged up and unable to practice much, if at all.

We should know shortly whether the new players is, in fact, Sheppard.

In other news, running back Darren McFadden still isn’t able to practice on his injured left foot. He suffered his injury against the Kansas City Chiefs and has missed every practice since that time.

Middle linebacker Rolando McClain, Chekwa and Johnson are at practice, but they aren’t participating in any drills.

Defensive tackle Richard Seymour returned to practice after missing both days last week. He has been bothered by as assortment of injuries of late. However, he looks good to go for the Denver Broncos on Nov. 6.

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski is on the field, but he isn’t testing out his injured hamstring. He is expected to play against the Broncos, as well.

All six of the Raiders wide receivers are practicing. They are doing so without being joined by veteran T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who is rumored to have worked out for the Raiders in recent days.

We should know more about who the new player is, what’s going on with Houshmandzadeh and everything else once we gain access to coach Hue Jackson and the players in another hour or so.

    Wow, I can’t believe you just admitted that MR is smarter than you.

    I’ve shied away from getting into the political discussions here mostly because a lot of it is talking point drivel from the talking heads and regurgitated nonsense spewed onto this board. It doesn’t make any sense and is ill-informed and uneducated. Stop throwing words around that have absolutely no context to this countries policies. You look like Glenn Beck when you do that.

    I would also suggest that you go look up the definition of democracy. Ok, after you do that go and look up the definition of an oligarchy. Ok, are you up to speed now? Because that is what we have. We haven’t been a democracy for a very, very long time. The US is an Oligarchy, no way around it.

    Back to football.

    It’s official. I thought they should have kept him back in training camp.

    Should be able to beat Tebow’s horses no problem. I hope both teams lose tonight.

    Why did we cut Lito in the first place? Remains a mystery in my book.

    “The tea baggers. The one thing they hate is when you call them racist. The other thing they hate is black people. But they won’t say it” – Bill Maher.

    “This could be a teaching moment, could it not for the teabaggers?” Maher declared. “Or maybe all of America – who don’t understand that socialism doesn’t mean we’re going to come to your house and make you work on a collective farm. You know, in Europe, socialism is just another political party and it doesn’t mean that we’re against making a profit. It just means that government takes over certain things like hospitals and prisons, and the military, schools – and things that should not be run for profit.”

    HAHAHAHAHAHA….yes I agree now Maher is very funny

    Can Maher play CB?

  • anhdazman

    Our young WRs needs repetition with Palmer. They’re talented, bringing in Houshmazadah would just stun their growth. Housh is not any better than the receivers that we currently have on the team.
    I don’t think McFadden will be back this week, we’re going to need Bush to be on his game and Taiwan Jones to be ready for 10-15 touches. Time for him to show Raider Nation and the world what he has to offer.

    Thursday is the critical practice day. Let’s hope DMCF shows up.

    IR Jason and cut one of those 4 TE’s
