Status quo with Raiders — no McFadden, McClain, et al

Running back Darren McFadden and middle linebacker Rolando McClain are not practicing today, as has been the case since the Raiderss last played a game.

McFadden was spotted leaving the facility on crutches Wednesday, with his right foot in a walking boot. All signs point to his missing Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.

Things aren’t so certain with McClain. He has been on the practice field, getting in some light jogging, taking in things, waiting for his left leg to get better.

Cornerbacks Chris Johnson and Chimdi Chekwa also still aren’t able to practice as a result of lingering hamstring injuries. Chekwa has been working with a trainer off to the side the past few days. Johnson has been out of sight the whole time.

Therefore, you can expect to see Lito Sheppard make his Raiders debut Sunday, and play a great deal. He was signed Monday.

There still isn’t definitive word, or otherwise, on whether Sunday’s game will sell out in time for it to be televised locally. The Raiders have until 1:05 p.m. today, unless they ask for, and receive, a one-day extension.

The Raiders have sold out all four of their regular-season home games this season. It helped that each of those four games had a built-in appeal — the home-opener, a game against the New England Patriots, a game against the Cleveland Browns on the heels of an emotional victory over the Houston Texans and the passing of managing general partner Al Davis, and a game against the AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs, which featured the Raiders debut of quarterback Carson Palmer.

The Broncos are 2-5 and lack much drawing power, other than the presence of dynamic quarterback Tim Tebow.

    I will withhold my mocking Tebow comments until we actually beat them.

    Because if we manage to lose, we will be the laughingstock of the NFL.
    ——————-
    I was there when Tebow ripped a 40 yd run on us and threw a TD into double coverage. Raiders better not overlook these guys or else it will be painful.
    ***************************************
    The throw into double coverage couldn’t be any luckier (went right throw routt’s arms) and that run had about 3 major holds that weren’t called……….. not saying it couldn’t happen again but, those were lucky plays.

  • aig-raiders
  • Just Fire Baby

    Then Tebow proceeded to throwing for 300 yds the following week.

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

    And it has been straight down-hill since then for him.

  • aig-raiders

    there was a blatant hold on MM34 now that I looked at it.

  • Just Fire Baby

    and that run had about 3 major holds that weren’t called………..

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

    Please stop with that crap.

    Hue is trying to build a bully here, not a bunch of foil-hat conspiracy theorists that whine about the refs.

  • aig-raiders

    There’s a hold on McClain as well. The hands cannot be around the back of the player. I thought the rule was to keep it within the shoulder when you are trying to block.

    Nothing funnier – or more pleasing – than watching two of my minions crying in each other’s arms over getting slapped around by their Master, Beecham!

    Yesterday after I cruised from the blog to party serious on my VIP-only Reggae Party Boat, Nob Raider and Peemore Bush had a girly sob session to get over the humiliations they suffered at my hand.

    It was pretty awesome, reminded me of that time Brenda and Kelly wept in each other’s arms because they weren’t invited to the West Beverly High prom.

    I’m sure my humble minions will be back today for more punishment, so check back soon for another classic Beeecham style slap down!

    CHECK YOUR MIC 1 2 1 2DEM BEATS IS FRESH

    exactly what did u say that made it a “slap down”? u never say anything but that u give us slapdowns. but just saying u did it doesn’t mean u did, moron.

    i actually post ur pathetic website and yelp reviews and i make fun of ur stupid “partying” and “record” and all of ur horrible music and movie references (beverly hills 90210?–seriously?). ur so lame.

    Goobers, I’m doing push ups now in preparation for the Abort McCourt Party Cruise Spectacular leaving tomorrow night from the Marina.

    It’s going to be completely epic, me and my lats are super pumped to kick the carpetbagging Bostonian back to Harvard Yard along with those cream puffs from Entourage and Ben Affleck.

    The PARTYDUDE 8000 will be kicking out the margs in FULL FORCE, the babes will be giving out complimentary hand jiggities to me and my boyz and you know the classic shrimp cocktails will be flowin.

    That just how I roll, big ups to Big Daddy Kane

    FLY RIGHT IF YOU WANT TO GET HIGH RIGHT (on weed)

  • Just Fire Baby

    There is only one type of “hold” and that is one called by the refs.

    Everything else is just football.

  • JLofty

    Yeah I was at that game too. I don’t overlook the Donkeys and I hope the RAIDERS don’t either. I have watched a LOT of NFL in my 40+ years and on any given Sunday….

  • JLofty

    Yeah Rob, lame, but often funny.

  • JR

    Must get Boss more involved in the passing game, no more Bush at QB, some short passes to Taiwan Jones, and a good defensive effort.

  • JLofty

    JFB, I will quit complaining about the ref conspiracy if you acknowledge it exists….

  • raiderinparadise

    We beat the broncos by 3 on MNF opener. Yes they had lloyd, orton and diff team but we dominated them but almost still lost. We need to get an ealry lead and force broncos to rely on tebows arm if we want to run away with this one. anywho …. he throws look like onside kicks, so we should be good.

  • JLofty

    Hopefully Palmer leaves less big plays unmade than his predecessor and the stomp will be on…

  • JR

    Don’t need to worry much about the Broncos passing game (Tebow). How about the Broncos running game (Tebow)?

    Nuff said.

    BUT I have suffered thru enough Seahawk games to know we are NOT the only team to draw BS flags and get robbed by the refs.

    Yeah, there are a few especially for the Silver and Black but our tradition is to beat, the other team, the refs and the world

  • Master Beeecham

    Right on cue, Nob Raider returns, desperate for another big dose of humiliation!

    Nob, just because you have no clue how to party serious or get fly with the shorties, does not mean you have to get so worked up and frustrated.

    It must take your mommy an hour to unbunch your Golden Girls signature panties.

    Remember, you’re my minion for a reason. You’re here to learn and be taught how to get wiggity with Kool Moe Dee by the ultimate party master.

    Now roll a fat spliff, stop being such a Brenda Walsh, and call up your BFF Peemore Bush so you can spoon the sadness away.

    If it wasn’t raining in Denver that first Monday night, we could have easily lost that freakin game. And that seems to be a thought that’s lost on most here.

    That is true…I believe we really got lucky when the Donks were driving and the ball just fell out of Orton’s hand…that was the turning point…

    Oh yeah Princess, and now would be the PERFECT time to repost the reviews of the low grade party cruise you found on yelp.

    Because that is common place when there is a questionable call.

    Read this link. Mike Carey doesn’t do Jaguars games either. Is there a league-wide conspiracy towards Jaguars games? Same thing with Hocholi and the Donkeys.

  • Raider J

    Carson’s 1st start. Picked up Curry and Atogwe. Lito is back. Hagan is in the bldg. Housh is back in a comfort zone. I like the way this team is building. They are going after everything I wished for before the season started. Experienced playmakers at WR, S, OLB, & QB all came in the first 6 weeks of the season. I didn’t think this much would happen until next off season! Add all of that to the group of extremely talented young players already on roster and we get RAIDER DYNASTY 2013 -

  • irishraiderfan

    Good Link #83. Jeff Triplette – worst ref ever………..
    Seriously, those guys are overpaid. i worked with one who was a back judge (10 years ago)and he made 90K a season. You’d think being paid that amount of money for a few hours they’d do a better job.

  • GoodOle00

    88. If Hagan is in the building they need to call security because he got fired. No longer with the team

    Yes, and this is a big issue I have right now with Hue. That Denver game shouldn’t have been close at all, but yet we had to sweat it out AS USUAL at the end. First we give up the obligatory garbage “gift” wrapped TD courtesy of Coach Bres. and then…we barely hang on, DESPITE dominating the whole game.

    Then…the Cleveland game. Up 24-10 Hue decides NOT to kick the almost guaranteed fg that would have sealed the game 27-10. But of course AS USUAL we must give up the obligatory 1:30 SEC. 80 YD. garbage time TD DRIVE that any Raider fan has come to expect whenever we have what we think is a comfortable lead. Then..the onside kick, recovered by Cleveland, and here we are AGAIN..a game we totally dominated having to sweat it out when we shouldn’t have to.

  • djohnnyg

    Cleveland
    Denver
    Buffalo

    THREE GAMES we had totally dominated and failed to put away like we should.

    Yes of course I’m happy we won two of those baby’s and that’s what’s most important, but it sure would help my blood pressure if Raiders would just seal the deal, and here’s a concept…ADD ON TO THE LEAD.

  • DEATHROW 55

    All those close games you can blame on our defence tackling like panochas. Or our secondary getting shredded. I blame our d before our o sad to say we are still a work in progress.

  • RaiderSam

    i think they made some moves…as the defense struggled .. they went on got Aaron Curry…then signed Lito Sheppherd..

    then there was a bobbled ball by D.Moore that got picked off, and Murphy shortened his inside route, and there was another INT…so they signed Houshmanzadeh. Hue is doing the best he can, and one question was , do you think Bush has to step up, and Hue Jack answered; “Honestly, its time for this whole team to step up”.
