McFadden not at practice; Ford, Moore giving it a go


Running back Darren McFadden is not practicing today and likely won’t be able to play Sunday. The same can’t be said of wide receivers Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford.
Ford and Moore are working out under the watchful eyes of two team athletic trainers, running short sprints and going through an assortment of drills.
It’s not much, but it’s far more than either has been able to do in recent weeks. Ford has been out with a foot injury since Dec. 10, when he suffered an injury against the San Diego Chargers. Moore suffered his foot injury 10 days later on a punt return against the Minnesota Vikings.
It’s still difficult to envision Ford and Moore playing Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, given they will have missed all three practices this week.
Just the same, the fact they are running around four hours before the team boards a plane for Green Bay portends there being a chance.
Running back Taiwan Jones (hamstring) and defensive tackle John Henderson (knee) also aren’t practicing. Jones certainly won’t play Sunday. Henderson has a realistic shot because he was able to practice Thursday.
Bryan McCannn is fielding punts and kicks in practice. It’s possible that he will be called upon to handle both jobs if Moore and Ford can’t play. Moore is the regular punt returner, Ford the No. 1 kick returner.

    Bush and Reece will carry the load. The offense will score. Of course, the question is the defense, especially the front 4!

    D needs to put some hits down, penalties or not. We have to win the mental game. Keep our composure. Get them twisted and get that damn ball back and we win this thing. Do this for the Johnson family. All men on deck putting everything they got into it. This is OUR Super Bowl this year.

    We need to run the ball successfully and push the ball vertically!

    We need to protect Palmer and keep Clay Matthews away from our QB!

    Don Capers will be putting a ish load of blitz packages…we need (O-line) to protect from all the pressure!

    We need to have a perfect game if we want this “W” Sunday!


    They need to run the ball, period – play Rock Cartwright in certain packages if they can – they need to have long drives

    Why would a REAL Raider fan believe that Carson Palmer can save our hopes of making the playoffs?

    Before Palmer, we were comfortably in the playoffs. Thanks to his “Carson Palmer” playing, which is what he did in Cinncinatti, our hopes of being in the playoffs, is only a dream.

    He may or may not be the future quarterback of our team, but in the mean time, he needs to be given a chance with some reps.

    Jason Campbell may be our starter for 2012, but in the meantime, give Pryor the reps.

    Carson is not the future, too bad he was even on the roster, as a thought.

    He IS a LOOSER.
