RB McFadden, WR Ford, DT Seymour not at practice

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.

    Sandusky 44 – Congratulations… Without a doubt you are the most reviled, disrespected troll that I have ever seen on the board. I mean, no one ever responds to your inane ramblings. You are constantly ridiculed. Everyone sees right thru you and knows who, and what, you really are. Do you really think anyone here is going to engage you in a genuine debate on Raider football? Do you honestly think anyone respects your football knowledge? Please… And yet you still come back for more. What a d-bag.

    I agree the raiders need a loyal fan base in the seats and larger season-ticket holder population. o.co is a small NFL stadium and it doesn’t even sell-out. This year has been great but still could be a better environment. The chiefs game last year was the best I seen it. With AL done, I know investors and diff people will be more willing to work with the raiders and the community and build it back up, hopefully a new younger generation of fans start to fill the seats too. bottom line: raiders get back to the top, the movement will revivie the fans and season tickets will go up fast.

  • HairyBush

    and most likely facing the Patriots and Texans again.

    next years home games will be Baltimore, Cincy, Atlanta, Carolina, and most likely Patriots (as long as we win Div)

  • hwnrdr

    True, all teams have fairweather fans, but no one as big as SD! Only when they were winning have you seen them (and yes, I used to live in SD). And SF fans, even Giants fans will not show their colors (unless they are die hard) until they are winning. Raiders have always had the top merchandise sales, and even during the 2-14 campaign, there were always silver and black everywhere! And not just in the Bay….
    So, if someone is in here babling a point about 9er fans are this or that…why are you here?

    The Vikings’ Adrian Peterson, widely viewed as the best running back in the NFL, said McFadden is one of the few other backs in the league he will make a point to watch.

    “There are not too many guys that I watch or I’m excited to watch, but he’s one of those guys,” Peterson said in a conference call. “He’s a north-and-south player, great speed, quick feet, athletic, catches the ball well. Just like me, I’m sure there are things he would love to improve on, but outside of that, he’s a guy I respect, and I like the way he runs the ball. I can’t say that about a lot of other backs.”

    Wrong BayAreafags….niners do, chargers do and fins do….how dumb can you be?
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Obviously you have no idea what fair weather means.

    Not that hard to follow.

    Raiders have sucked for decades. have led the league in blackouts for decades. Lead the league in requests for extensions., as stated by the board dork.

    Niners have also sucked for decades. Haven’t had a game blacked out in over 30 yrs. Now see if you can figure out what I just said.
    Resorting to your juvenile names means you’re getting desperate.

    I hope the Raids can stay on the “no Sunday night home game” train indefinitely.
    That way Al Michaels might never step foot in the Coliseum again. Raider hater from every thing Ive heard him say.

    True. SD fans are also bandwagon.

    Yeah, Raiders have lots wearing silver and black. You need to read up to figure out why so many wear the colors but don’t have clue one about the team, the schedule.
    Silly to state which fans wear colors day after losses, actually. Unless you are everywhere that day, how would you/I know? All we can go by is facts. Facts are after multiple losses Raider fans bail.

    Thousands of tickets bought by niners every game and others most notably Jacksonville to Avoid Blackouts!What do you think the premium game package was about last year! I have relatives with Niners season tickets as well. Look at Chargers Blackouts this year when they were winning! It’s all over the NFL! Don’t play like you don’t have a Al fetish Sulllivan! I don’t usually post but you are pathetic! Niners also was punished for paying remember Salary Cap or the famous Capoligist! LMAO!

    I am not worried about our offense, BUT Peterson is scary. Ponder can scramble a bit as well, we need to force turnovers when the throw.

  • joshh1174

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

  • ElkGRaider

    Good scoop fellas. Probably means it hits here in an hr or so…

  • raiderinparadise

    Chekwa on IR …. Bryan McCann signed to roster.

  • luvmarvhub

    Minnesota lost a lot of games early in the season with collapses in the second half, like us.

    It’s clear that our defense is still susceptible to a really good runner, in this case Peterson, and to anyone who moves outside the pocket, and Ponder can do that.

    What concerns me most, however, is playing on the really fast track of artificial turf. Teams who aren’t recently used to playing on it or those not used to playing on it frequently (us), often have early adjustment problems and Peterson is already enough of a problem.

    Secondly, ever notice how team not used to playing on turf seem to fumble more than usual? At first thought, it wouldn’t seem that artificial turf would correlate to more fumbles (since the ground can’t cause a fumble under the rules), but I think what happens is that runners and receivers not used to the fast track have body and mind reactions to the difference and get careless with the mechanics of holding on to the ball. Any action that is suddenly faster than that one is used to, whether riding a bike, driving a car, playing an instrument up-tempo, or carrying a football, poses greater risk, and the players and coaches, I hope, have considered that risk management is important here.

  • joshh1174

    I know a lot of Cowboys fans… they were mad when Bryan McCann was let go, he is gonna be a solid player! Good signing for Oakland!

  • joshh1174

    He’s the guy who picked off Eli Manning last year, and returned it 101 yards. Then in the next game he returned a 97-yeard punt return for a tocuhdown. Also in Madden 12 there is a achievement named after him. So I say it’s a OK pick up
