Raiders could face line juggling

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Tuesday, November 8th, 2011 at 3:37 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Right tackle Khalif Barnes (shoulder) and center Samson Satele (knee) were riding exercise bikes as the Raiders went through warmups and it remains to be seen if they’ll be ready to play Thursday night in San Diego.

Neither man went through the team walkthrough Monday.

If Barnes and Satele were unable to play, the offensive line would probably be Stephon Heyer at right tackle, Cooper Carlisle at right guard, Stefen Wisniewski at center, Joe Barksdale at left guard and Jared Veldheer at right tackle. Bruce Campbell, who has been playing both right guard and tackle of late, could be active after being inactive for the past three games.

Running back Darren McFadden was not present, and likely will be declared out Wednensday on the team’s injury report. Middle linebacker Rolando McClain was present, although it’s not known if he’ll get in any practice time. Also not practicing was free safety and nickel back Michael Huff, who remains in a walking boot to protect an injured ankle. Cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke (hamstring) didn’t appear to be practicing, although Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring) was on the field.

Coach Hue Jackson and players are available following practice.

    The problem, my guess, is that Palmer is not that much better than Jason Campbell, and at least Soup can extend plays with his quickness. But, Palmer cost is considerably higher, not just the high draft choices but the salary cap hits he’ll bring.
    ===========================================

    Your lst two statements completely contradict each other. lst you say Palmer is not that much better than Campbell, but yet his cost is considerably higher. Well, there is a reason Palmer’s cost is considerably higher. He is BETTER. Much better. You might not understand that, but certainly people in the NFL do. Let me just say, if we could auction JCampbell off right now, we would NOT get a lst rounder that he was initially chosen with. I would be surprised if we got anything higher than a 4th.

    There calling for Paterno’s head on the Pa papers…The worst thing, other than the horrific acts allegedly committed by sandusky, is that of last week he was on the Penn state campus , lifting weights.The complicity of spanier and others is undeniable and reprehensible. The pa governed was on campus today and I would expect paternal and spanier to go. What a terrible way to end his remarkable career…

    #346,

    I don’t buy a lot of what Hue is selling, but I don’t buy your whole argument, either.

    I think Hue brought TJ in here because he didn’t have anyone that could play the slot. He tried with some of the guys he had but they weren’t cutting it there. Watch some of the previous games if you can; it’s pretty obvious that we had a need there.

    I don’t agree with you that Hue had to readjust the scheme for Palmer. If he was forced to adjust anything it was more than likely because McFadden was out. I think Jackson almost surely felt that Palmer could do more in the passing game than Campbell and may have adjusted some things because of what he thought was a greater capability at the position, but I certainly don’t think he adjusted anything because he thought he could do LESS, or that there were things Palmer couldn’t do. In fact, some of the rollouts he designed for Jason Campbell probably had as much to do with giving him that little extra time to pull the trigger as anything. Palmer doesn’t have that problem; he gets rid of the ball on time.

    As far as “seeing the consequences that’s creating in the locker room”, you may have to elaborate. I’ve heard rumors and speculation, but nothing from any player about that.

    Hue needs to get this team back on track, no doubt. There have been a lot of distractions and I don’t think it’s been handled all that well, but I think that in this case Hue addressed two distinct positions of need with the best players he could find. Looking around the league, it doesn’t appear that he could have found better players than he did.

    ok mr just took blogging to another level
    he just posted under sully that the raiders would lose.
    Now he puts on another sock an says they win.

    Wow MR good one
    ——
    Proof that I’m not MR. I’ve always been positive about the Raiders. I’m much more of a kool-aid drinker than he is.

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

    YOU ABSOLUTELY STATED YOU AND MR WERE THE SAME PERSON BEFORE YOU “RETIRED”
    ———
    That is not true. If you didn’t notice, someone was trolling my name. That was the reason for the retirement.

    Post#356: Nice outlook teach.
    Hue has been giving an extraordinary set of obsticles to overcome in 1 season, loss of Al, JC and now DMac on the shelf for an unknown period…any 1 of these would be a challenge, but all 3 in succession is a tough draw…think he’s doin the best he can, and as angry as i was Sunday/Monday, I’ve got to move forward with MY team, the team i’ve spent my whole life supporting…
    If you aren’t “buying” what Hue’s selling, don’t know what to tell you, but I’M IN!
    Now let’s win Thursday Nite!
