Ford, Moore, Seymour, Curry still out

Wide receiver Jacoby Ford walked on to the practice field well after practice started, with his left foot in a walking boot. Before long, he walked past fellow injured wide receiver Denarius Moore. It’s enough to conjure images of a rookie starting opposite Darrius Heyward-Bey in the regular-season opener Sept. 10.
This has to be a sobering sight, if not thought, for first-year head coach Dennis Allen as he wraps up his first training camp today.
Moore has missed most of training camp, as well as both exhibition games, with a lingering hamstring injury. There is no timetable for his return, though he certainly looks closer than Ford at this point.
So, for now, there figures to be a ton of playing time for rookies Juron Criner and Rod Streater, as well as other hopefuls, Saturday night against the Detroit Lions, if not beyond.
Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp said Wednesday that injuries to Moore and Ford are somewhat of a blessing in disguise in terms of the younger receivers getting more practice and playing time.
Yet, Knapp and Allen aren’t blinded by the fact that the Raiders are a better team with Moore and Ford at their disposal.
In the long run, shutting down Moore figures to be a wise move, given he is experienced enough to know the offense and play in a real game without as much practice time as Criner and Streater.

– Defensive tackle Richard Seymour was on the practice field, but he sat out for the fourth straight time since he played against the Arizona Cardinals on Friday night.
Allen said Wednesday that Seymour isn’t injured and that Seymour is being held out as a means of helping him be fresh for the regular season.

– Linebacker Aaron Curry still isn’t able to practice, which means he will have, at most, only two weeks to prepare for the regular-season opener. That’s assuming he is able to practice for the first time Monday, when the Raiders resume their preseason workouts in Alameda.

– Center Stefen Wisniewski (calf) missed practice, too, which means that he likely won’t play Saturday night. Alex Parsons is in line to fill in for Wisniewski for the second straight game.

    The Pats have tons of wideouts on there roster, they will have to cut at least a couple of them, I’m sure Reg is keeping his eyes peeled.

    I hated Barry Sanders. But he was a great RB on krappy Lions team. Got tired of losing and walked away in his prime. Only Jim Brown did likewise. The others, OJ, Dickerson etc. hung on even though they were washed up. For QB’s, I have memories of Unitas finishing with the Chargers and Namath with the Rams. Not a pretty sight.

    —————

    Sayers made the list.

    And I have no doubts Bo would have made the list and gone down as the greatest of them all.

    He was faster than all the rest.
    He had the power that Walter/Brown/Campbell had
    He could throw like Marcus
    He had the pain threshold of Emmit Smith

    He could do it all. Freak injury to a relatively unknown part of the body that we werent able to heal at the time. Knee’s and ankles are far more complex joints but due to the frequency of those being injured, we have decades of research on how to fix them. The hip just wasnt common enough at the time.

    Bo was arguably the greatest athletic specimen we’ve ever seen.

    Another guy that should have made that list had his career went according to plan was Ricky Williams, the second coming of Earl Campbell.

    Fix.Or.Repair.Daily will be out of the league sooner rather than later.

    Dmo if he can stay healthy better than Mark Clayton

    DHB=James Jett hmmmmm… I think that is fair but I see DHB still getting better and have hope for him to surpass the world class sprinter.

    I loved the Hos, but he took a beating. And had a lot of trouble staying healthy for us. All his injuries is what made Al gunshy about Gannon and eventually was soured to risk his franchise on Gradkowski.

    That aside, as far as being a pure QB, Marinovich was worlds better than Hos and tougher. Marinovich had some serious moxy about him.

    Too bad he pissed it all away. I understand where it all went wrong, and its a sad story. He had the tools to be one of the greats.

    I’m not taking anything out of context, You said if Bo never got hurt and Todd stayed off the drugs the Raiders would have dominated the 90′s.

    If bo would have stayed healthy with S.Beurline possibly even Hostetller I would agree.
    Todd was a waste of space unfortunetley.

    All this fear of Knapp ruining the offense has me less concerned cuz I feel Palmer is a guy who knows that this is his make or break his career yr.

    He’s getting older and realizes time is limited to make his mark and leave a solid legacy. He’s not getting into the hof no matter what he does..unless he gets the MVP three yrs. in a row and wins at least one SB, but this is chance to show that he can be elite like he was in 2005.

    I’m telling you guys, he will not accept being totally hamstrung in an offense where he feels like he’s operating in quicksand. There’s too much at stake for him.

    If this offense stalls, he will lobby and do whatever it takes to make it operational for him and the Raiders.

    He will not just lower his head and say “it’s ok if we suck..i understand we have this new system and it takes time”. Not for long at least.

    That’s why I have faith this team will make the adjustments to make this work.

  • sirblitzalot

    I agree, Ford made some awesome plays but the # of the awesome plays were to few and far in between. Ford thought that he “arrived” because of those spectacular plays but then he went on vacation and just “went through the motions” when we needed him most. That was the lack luster attempt (didn’t go after it) in the S.D. game last year. That play caused us the playoffs. Steater, on the other hand, looks like he has got “it”. He looks like a natural at that position. Moore also looks like a natural receiver. Him and Moore will probably turn out to be the best tandem we have had since Rice and Brown got us to the SB!!! DHB is big strong and still progressing. He has ability but does not look like a natural. You have to deliver the ball in the exact right spot for him to catch it. Moore and Streater will make CP look better than he is.
