RB McFadden, WRs Ford and Moore not practicing

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011 at 10:52 am in Oakland Raiders.

As expected, running back Darren McFadden and wide receiver Jacoby Ford aren’t practicing today. In a surprising development, receiver Denarius Moore is watching practice with a protective boot on his right foot.
Backup running back Taiwan Jones also isn’t practicing as a result of the hamstring injury he suffered Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is at practice, though he isn’t participating. He is watching without the neck brace he was sporting after the neck injury he received against the Vikings.
So, as of now, the Raiders projected starting lineup against the Chicago Bears on Sunday would feature Michael Bush at running back, with Louis Murphy and Chaz Schilens at the wide receiver spots and Bryan McCann returning punts and kicks.
Moore got dinged up at some point of the Vikings game. However, he appeared fine afterward and he was not mentioned by coach Hue Jackson on the injury report after the game.
If Moore can’t go, the Raiders also would need to find someone else to return punts. McCann is the logical candidate to replace Moore on punt returns and Ford on kick returns.
Rock Cartwright is in line to get some action at running back for the first time if McFadden and Jones can’t play. He has not run the ball at all through the first 10 games.
Bush rushed 30 times in each of the past two games. That workload might go up even more if he is the lone healthy back Sunday.
Defensive tackle Richard Seymour (knee) and defensive end Lamaar Houston (hamstring) also aren’t practicing today. Seymour played a bit against the Vikings despite missing all four practices the week before.
Fullback Manase Tonga and middle linebacker Rolando McClain are practicing, as is center Samson Satele three days after he suffered a concussion.

    Forte and Barber are no joke and more than likely won’t get injured like AP did.

    207, agreed. If they’re going to get flagged for personal fouls, make it count. Lets see a Curry and McPain Abomb with a flying elbow.

    I knew going up inside that d@mn Dome was going to destroy our health! I just freakin’ knew it.It’s not the rock hard carpet from the old days but it is still an “artificial surface”! Taiwan and D Moore-arrrggghhh

    I am not even going to think about DMC.I will just get him out of my mind,they maybe he will get healthy-one day before the end of Dec.

    WR/KR Jacoby Ford still in a walking boot as of today. Coach Jackson said he is hopeful Ford will be out of boot within next day or so.

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    Pryor may not have come into the league to be a WR but he may end up as one this weekend.

    =============================

    Only prob with Pryor is he isnt shifty/fluid. He’s a straightliner…

  • beach

    Time to man up Raiders, if you want to win the AFC West. This is a huge game vs. the Bears! At least our defense appears to be close to 100%. It’s going to be low scoring.

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    219. So is DHB.

    Pryor at WR= Right foot in a boot on Monday

  • beach

    Why the secret with McFadden? Is he out for the season? I’m sick of hearing this foot excuse every darn week!

  • http://build-a-bully 909RaiderLifer

    Q.. if your out there…

    RAIDERS–24 YOGI BEARS–20

    Thanks….

    Sorry to say it but T.O. looks like an option right now…

    #Raiders defensive end Jarvis Moss (hamstring) also did not practice today. DT Richard Seymour and DE Lamaar Houston also sidelined.

    If so, he would have been IR’d.

    Not sure why anyone cares WHAT the injury is.

    All I want to know is: is he back and is he 100%?

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    T.O. is not an option. T.O. is done.

  • ghostraiders

    I knew we should have never let hagan go for doucheyourmomma. .. where is he at anyway?? We can sure use him.

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    Everyone going to the game this weekend needs to have a Sign Bush and feed the beast sign.

  • LA to TheBay

    Big game for backs and TEs likely.

  • http://repealitnow.org MistaBrown

    We will see plenty of TJ by default Sunday.

    if Houston and Moss are out

    DE’s – Bryant TScott
    DT’s – Hendu TKelly Seymour

    RB – Bush

    WR’s -Chaz Murphy Housh

  • raiderinparadise

    McFaddden is a BIGGGGG secret.

    1 month out.

    a whole month.

    With all the injuries if he wasn’t that bad they would at least try to let him practice …. being that if we lose we could fall behind denver in division if they win.

    McFadden foot/ankle is F’d up big time

  • Chris in NY

    First Hue with the officials. Then Schilens and Houston with Sapp. Now MM34 is popping off about Hester.

    I like it. Hate the injuries right now. But I like the attitude coming from this team.

    Feels like we’re getting ready for takeoff.

    No idea what you are talkin about

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    With all Houstons talking we need to line him up at RB on short yardage.

  • raiderinparadise

    Bills sign Tashard Choice ….. guess Hue doesnt want to sign anyone to help.

    Reece, Bush, Tonga, Rock.

    Rock was in the backfield in practice.

  • 4.2 40

    Minnesota hadn’t given up a 100 yards rushing to any opponent in 2011 until Bush busted them…Minnesota rush defense is better than the bears statistically….RAM it down their throats…Everyone will be pleasantly surprised at who will be available for week 12….

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    M.Giordano at WR.

  • inonewordraider

    with all the injuries this is going to be our toughest test of the year. Oline has to give CP time and Bush some lanes Dline gna have to scrape by lb’s have to have their back and CP our biggest advantage over Bears gna have to carve em up

  • DutchRaider77

    Sucks, Fred Jackson put on IR…

  • raiderinparadise

    Boller at Punt Gunner.

    Pryor at pass rushing end.

    Bruce Campbell with some DT snaps.

    Janikowski in the slot.

    All fixed.

  • Chris in NY

    LOL

  • Chris in NY

    Janikowski already has some experience (sorta) running the ball under Tom Cable.

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    Jano in the slot!!! Why didnt i think of that?

    He will be dubbed Wesnikowski. I like it!
