McFadden still not practicing, likely won’t play Sunday

Running back Darren McFadden is not practicing once again, which increases the odds against his playing Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
The Raiders have one more practice before they board a plane for Green Bay. It’s almost inconceivable to envision McFadden playing Sunday, even if he is able to practice Friday.
He has not performed any football-related activities since he suffered a mid-foot sprain Oct. 23, early in a game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
At this point, it’s on to targeting the Detroit Lions as the possible return for McFadden.
That also appears to be the case for wide receivers Jacoby Ford (foot) and Denarius Moore (foot), both of whom have not practiced for several weeks.
Fortunately for the Raiders, wide receiver Chaz Schilens returned to practice today, four days after he suffered a foot injury against the Miami Dolphins.
As of now, it appears as if the Raiders will enter the Packers game with Schilens and Darrius Heyward-Bey as the starting receivers, with only Louis Murphy and T.J. Houshmandzadeh as the backups.
Running back Taiwan Jones (hamstring) also is out of practice once again. He sounded hopeful about returning this week, given he was at about “75-80 percent” in his agility drills Monday.
So, Michael Bush figures to get the lion’s share of the workload running the ball for the sixth straight game, with Marcel Reece and Rock Cartwright on call, if needed, to lighten the load.
Defensive tackle John Henderson returned to practice despite a sore knee. He appeared to be limping around during the drills but he said he intends to play Sunday.
Cornerback Chris Johnson rejoined his teammates only three days after his sister Jennifer was shot and killed and his mother Della was wounded by a 46-year-old man in Texas.
Johnson’s mother is expected to survive, according to police who responded to the call.
Bryan McCann was fielding kicks at practice in case Ford isn’t able to make it back. Cartwright and Tyvon Branch are other candidates to handle kick-return duites.

    Seymour,

    Amen and Amen!

    Getting the feeling that there is NO gameplan.

    After the rush of trick plays died down, Raiders Offense seems flat.

    3rd and 9, Shotgun formation with Bush, here comes another draw.

    Reminds me of when Gruden struggled to close games out for us.

    Hue can build the Bully all he wants, just let Saunders call the plays.
    =====================================

    it isnt the play calling its the execution. the drop off in qb play is what is hampering our team. palmer must improve or be at least decent like he was in the charger game. the fact that we suddenly cant convert on 3rd down is a direct result of palmer struggling, on 3rd down vs the rush and in the 4th quarter.

    Black nationalism = reparations. That was a term used by anti-reparations arguers. You don’t want blacks to be paid reparations, have control over their own capital, so, the ghetto’s coming to a suburb near you. Karma.

    Jackson needs to RELINQUISH the playcalling. They finally gave it to Saunders in the 4th two games ago and we got points. Now it’s time for Saunders to call ALL the plays.

    ———

    Link, source?
    =====================================

    All you have to do is look at the tape. I made the remark about letting Saunders call the plays in the 4th and sure enough they let him do it. Jackson’s playcalling in the beginning of the Miami game was atrocious. lst play, quick out to DHB. Gain of 7. That’s what I thought we should be doing. Passing on them. Then it was run, run, and it was 3 and out, 3 and out. And the dolphins were scoring. Here, the tell tale sign, when you see Jackson on the sidelines while our offense is on the field with no headphones on, Saunders is playcalling.

    Well said. They ran a reverse (surprise, surprise to Murphy late in the lst half) in Miami that got some yardage. Then Hue called the same play two plays later that got stuffed for a loss. You can’t think of anything else to do Hue?

    if we fall to 7-6 and the donks win we will be hard pressed to make the playoffs. If somehow palmer can pull his head out and get rid of his gradkowski costume and win, it would go a long way in terms of restoring faith in palmer. if they lose and palmer stinks it up, the trade will look like a bad joke, the season will go down in flames, and hu jack better start his apology letter to jc and beg him back

    thats another thing…creativity…id like to see a lot more creativity in the play calling than we did in miami…its like the coaches were asleep out there too not just the players..about an hour ago · LikeUnlike

    I think letting Saunders call the plays will make us more dynamic, even with our three remaining WRs…19 minutes ago · LikeUnlike.

    Wouldn’t really matter right now. Play book curtailed by 17 injuries and back up personnel not versed in all those plays in Saunders arsenal. This is about who wants it more…A few seconds ago · LikeUnlike.

    419, thats is a very weak excuse for palmers play. no matter which reciever is healthy palmer has to hit them when they are open and he hasnt done it the last 2 weeks. Bush dhb chaz and murph, that is more than adequate, palmer must find his game, he has badly regressed since the charger game

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

    Turrible post. Palmer compared to Gradkowski now? Did we not win 3 in a row before last week? How would we be hard pressed to get to the playoffs if we lose this game? Arent there 3 more weeks after that? Man…the sky is not falling…

    Palmer is a probowl level QB who has 3 possession recievers to work with. Once we get our “ferraris” back the offense will be great…

    NOW TRAINERS GET OUR FERRARIS BACK. What the heck is going on??

  • ElkGRaider

    Jackson should have slapped the person that suggested Palmer in the first place.
    Why keep Pryor on the sideline? Other then Palmer’s own family and “lying” friends believe he is ANY good.
    The Oakland Raider FANS have suffered enough barring with the “impotency” of Carson Palmer.!!!!
