Hue doesn’t expect fine

Raiders coach Hue Jackson said he has talked with NFL representatives about his issues with the officiating and is ready to move on.

Jackson said he spoke his mind and “feels very good” about the discussion, declining specifics on who he talked to or what was discussed.

He said he does not expect to be fined for being critical of the league’s officiating.

In other quick hits:

– Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is doing well, wearing a neck brace _ Jackson called it a “sympathy” brace _ and wouldn’t even rule out having the receiver face the Chicago Bears Sunday. He said he also wouldn’t be surprised if Heyward-Bey didn’t play.

– Center Samson Satele has begun concussion protocol, Jackson said, and he thinks he will be cleared to play pretty quickly.

– Michael Bush has carried 30 times in each of the last two games, and with Taiwan Jones hobbled with a hamstring pull and Darren McFadden still in doubt, could be in line for 30 more.

“That’d be 90 in three games _ that’s pretty good,” Jackson said.

The coach said he thought Bush was not showing signs of strain under the work load. Bush has 599 yards rushing, just 15 yards behind McFadden for the team lead.

– Jackson said McFadden is not being hidden nor does he have an injury worse than has been reported (mid-foot sprain). He said he simply doesn’t want to put McFadden on the field unless he’s 100 percent.

– Raiders players as well as Jackson figure the Bears will be formdiable opposition without quarterback Jay Cutler (broken thumb), noting that backup Caleb Hanie acquitted himself well in last season’s NFC championship game agianst Green Bay when Cutler left due to injury.

More to come later after I tend to some print deadlines . . .

    Well, looks like after tonight the AFC West can be summed up as:

    - Raiders in the driver’s seat
    - Tebow giving false hope to millions of people waiting for the second coming
    - Chargers and Chiefs working on 2012 draft picks

    LoL mamba …. so true campbell would start the cadience and then just call timeout …. i also noticed campbells audibles almost always resulted in lossed yardage lol.

    not exactly the point of the no huddle or audibles

    ——

    YES exactly!! Get the D on the back foot, and then lose yards with a nothing call…. counter productive realy.

    What was amazing about the Randy Moss incident, was how explosive he is up close. In 2 long strides he was halfway accross the parking lot, with a full shopping cart!!!!
    Very Impressive.
