CB Johnson shut down; rookie signed

The Raiders placed veteran cornerback Chris Johnson on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness List, no doubt the result of his struggles coping with the recent death of his sister and shooting of his mother.
Johnson told coach Hue Jackson that he wasn’t up to playing last Sunday against the Green Bay Packers because of what he is going through. He attended his sister’s funeral earlier this week and missed practice all week.
The Raiders signed undrafted rookie defensive end Mason Brodine from the practice squad and placed him on the 53-man roster to take Johnson’s place.
Brodine, 6-feet-7 and 255 pounds, played his collegiate ball at Nebraska-Kearney. The Raiders liked what they saw from him in training camp and signed him to their practice squad a day after they released him in the final roster cutdown.
It’s unclear if Brodine will see much, if any, playing time Sunday against the Detroit Lions or in any of the Raiders final three regular-season games.

    I liked that quote from Veldheer early in the year. He said the ball is snapped and a second later Dmac is already through to the second level. We need that again.

    ++++++++++=

    DMAC is a rare talent no doubt…

    ====================================================
    DMAC is unreliable. I could support a move for Forte…not like there aren’t enough bloated contracts to be cut around here

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    The fact that the Chiefs are beating the Packers 6-0 after one quarter just shows us how terrible the Raider defense is.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Matt Forte will get a huge deal, be great for one year, than become one of the most overpaid players in the NFL by the end of his contract.

    F signing RB’s to big deals. You got guys like Fred Jackson and Arian Foster, undrafted, being the best at their position, making 350K a year.

    RB are like the little hoppers on the Wire. You don’t pay them crap, milk everything you can out of them, and than shoot them in the alley once they get too big.

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

  • No Mas Diamante

    Not seeing thie news about dmac being out for the year anywhere. Must be bs…

    by the way, I see some of you complain that you that cork doesn’t post breaking news stories fast enough here. Well, this isn’t the place for breaking news if that is what you want. Follow cork or or jerry or victor t on twitter if you want breaking news. Breaks there before it breaks here. I figure that this is more a place to talk about what’s going on after you here about it elsewhere. It’s a blog

  • Deja vu

    I think the Raiders should worry about winning the final 3 games and hope for Denver to lose 2 for us to win the division.

    You have either Baltimore or the Steelers getting one wild card and Raiders, Jets, Titans and Bengals fighting for that last wild card.

    Titans have the easier schedule, so imo they have the best shot at that last wild card.
    Titans final 3 – Indy, Jags and Texans.

    That’s actually kind of worrisome. Teams seem to go on win streaks when a coach is replced midseason. The Raiders face the Chiefs in two weeks. LOL

    All of you butt kissing overly compassionate homers make me sick.
    I live for this team and no other for 34 years. I love all of you like brothers but…get real.

    I lost my big brother and best friend in the middle of my season when I was in college.
    It was devastating, and I had a nervous breakdown on the ride back to school from the fueneral so bad, I had to go to a hospital in between Philadelphia and Syracuse. Probably a result of holding emotions in, to be strong for my family. Not a day goes by, where I don’t miss my brother…
    That being said, I was still at practice on the following day. ear hurt, and now can’t play because of grief? Condolences, now get the f**k out.

    I have a lot of opinions for sure….

    But one thing I never would question is how a person handles loss in their own way.

  • Captain Slim Flim and the Marching Push Mower Contingent

    Raiders can win today. They just need to play good ball and hump up their game. When they can get some ass, they got to go for it.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Why do so many of you give so much credit to the Titans?

    They stink, and will be lucky to go 1-2 the rest of the way. Incredibly lucky to be where they are.

    Some mope in here was telling me this week that they will go 2-1 or 3-0, no problem.

    So far today, problem.

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    Our defense stinks, but McFadden is the main reason this team may not make the playoffs.

    I had hoped that Houston would take down Tennessee in week 17. Looks like the Colts might do us the favor instead.

    Raiders already have the tiebreaker over Cincy. They aren’t a worry as long as the Raiders win. Jets are the main problem.
