RB McFadden, WR Ford, DT Seymour not at practice

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, November 17th, 2011 at 10:50 am in Oakland Raiders.

Running back Darren McFadden, wide receiver Jacoby Ford and defensive tackle Richard Seymour aren’t practicing today, as has been the case all week.
This all but rules out McFadden and Ford from playing Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, given coach Hue Jackson is hesitant to use players in games when they don’t practice at all in the days leading up to a game.
In Seymour’s case, he still might play because he isn’t suffering from as severe an injury, as are McFadden (foot) and Ford (foot). He has a sore ankle but still made it through the San Diego Chargers game last Thursday night.
“He’s going to be fine,” Jackson said of Seymour on Wednesday. “Richard will be fine. Again, we got some guys that we got to make sure we take care of and look out for. This is a long season, and you got to make sure we get guys to the game healthy.”
McFadden watched part of practice Wednesday, without wearing a protective boot on his right foot, according to Jackson. That qualified as “huge progress,” Jackson said. McFadden was not on the field this morning, though he might make another appearance within the next 90 minutes.
Taiwan Jones is fielding kicks in practice. He is the leading candidate to handle that chore against the Vikings if Ford can’t play.
Cornerback Chimdi Chekwa isn’t at practice, which portends a setback from the hamstring injury that has dogged him the past several weeks. He practiced Wednesday and appeared to be making solid progress toward a return to full health. More on that later, once we get a chance to speak with Jackson and Chekwa.
Free safety Michael Huff (ankle) is practicing and showing no ill effects from the injury that sidelined him for the Chargers game.
“I ran a little bit at practice today, got some more reps, so I’ll definitely be ready this week,” Huff said after Wednesday’s practice.
Huff has missed two games this season after not missing any his first five NFL seasons.

    You think he will play after one day of practice, like Aaron Curry?

  • RaiderRockstar

    The Oakland Raiders have signed defensive back Bryan McCann, formerly of the Baltimore Ravens, and placed rookie CB Chimdi Chekwa on injured reserve.

    Really?

    Let’s hope CJ37 & DVD get back quickly – in time to face Aaron Rodgers

    He would carve up guys like Sheppard & McCann!

    BM20,

    you’re judging CJ37 based upon 2 games in which he was playing HURT?

    tough crowd!

  • saladfingerz

    I dunno RRockstar.

    DVD and CJ over Mccann and Lito?

    It might be a draw, but I would take the latter. Mccann will surprise a few…he can play. Lito has the vet knowhow.

    #34, great read. I loved what I heard about Moore in camp and he hasn’t let anyone down. He may go down as the last Raidre great Al drafted.

    Then there’s this “And this guy’s a rookie? Some experienced receivers would have done a cartwheel and some pelvic thrusts after a catch like that.”
    Aaron Curry would’ve jumped into the stands after an INT like that, based on the way he celebrates a team mates sack!

    When you feel you have to go to another teams board, to point to a comment a simple fan made, it means you feel you need help.
    Of course rich people buy bigger blocks.
    I replied the Niners are not buying up tickets, that the fans sell out the stadium.
    You just proved my case.
    Thank you.
    Now go take your meds.
    *****************************

    Um the other teams board was relevant becuz you said Raiders had most badnwagon fans in NFL….i countered and said the niners and then showed you what niner season ticket holders were saying. PEDOchet just like onthat same site I showed you where one ofthe members of that site proved Al Davis was responsible for the 49ers success…funny thing is when Al died the York/Debartilo family seconded what I said

    That board isthe biggest 49er board on the internet so it was quite relevant

    And by you admitting richer people buy up bigger blocks just adds more points for the B@uce. Those empty seats you see at Candlebtch is exact proof of that! Those rich fks give tix away and if no one wants them…no biggie to them…anyone who lives up here knows this. and those same rich people bought season tickets wayt in advance becuz they thought niners would win forever and when they didnt show they were elite all you saw was orange seats in SF….so again you lose lol

    My meds are Don Julio and Fat Tire while yours is listening to Modest Mouse and watching re-runs of the Care Bears

    Exactly!

    Most fans didn’t know that CJ37 was playing hurt I am going to hold of judging him until I see him at full strength this year.

    —-

    No im not, hes a liablity and he gets beat repeataly, “bar” his pick 6 vs the broncos early last year hez been ghastly .. he gives PI on 6 yard out routes.. No other CB gives up yards like CJ..

  • RaiderRockstar

    Mccann will surprise a few…he can play

    ***

    did we sign him off somebodys practice squad or off the street?

    Exactly my point.

    I figured TJ Housh would look old & slow. He does. I figured Lito would look better than Ron Parker. He does. Still not a world beater

    I can evaluate talent. need a return man? sign Johnnie Lee!

  • Blackmamba_20

    i don’t dog on any raider for no reason, i commend dudes trying to play hurt and anyone on the field has my full support, but CJ is not good…Id have Lito in a second, just look at the body of work its not even close.

    Bcz,

    It’s a simple question.

    If Al Davis really didn’t care about blackouts because he was such a rebel and a maverick, why did he ask for an extension so many times to beat the thursday deadline?
    ++++++++++++++++++

    OMFG Dude, STFU already…God I wish there was an ignore button on this blog.
    Good Lord do you suck.
