Moore, Ford still not practicing

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 at 10:38 am in Oakland Raiders.

If wide receivers Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore are going to play in the regular-season opener Monday night, it’s going to be on two days’ practice, at best.
Moore and Ford are not practicing today once again, Moore with a lingering hamstring injury and Ford with a sore foot.
Given the Raiders are off Wednesday, Ford and Moore are down to two full practices before the Raiders throttle down Saturday with a light practice.
Moore seems closer to returning than Ford, given he has been running in recent days. Ford still hasn’t been cleared to run, though he is out of the protective boot that he had been wearing on his left foot.

– Center Stefen Wisniewski and defensive tackle Richard Seymour are practicing today for the second straight day. That bodes well for their playing Monday night.
Wisniewski had been out since Aug. 13, when he suffered a calf injury against the Dallas Cowboys. Seymour missed more than two weeks with a sore knee after making an appearance in a game against the Arizona Cardinals on Aug. 17.

– Kicker Sebastian Janikowski is not at practice. Coach Dennis Allen excused Janikowksi for personal reasons. Not to worry, he is expected to rejoin the team well in time to get ready for the game Monday night.

– Allen is not speaking with the media today. Therefore, we will deliver interesting quotes from numerous players soon after practice ends.

– Teams are required to let the media watch at least 30 minutes of practice each day throughout the regular season. Most, if not all, teams limit the media-access period to the allotted 30 minutes.
Given part of that time is dedicated to stretching and running, it’s difficult to glean much information from in-season practices.
Media typically get the boot once full-team drills commence.

– The Raiders entered today $6 million under the salary cap. However, that figure will drop later today, when all teams are required to count more than their top 51-salaried players.
Teams now have to account for all 53 players on the roster, as well as those on injured-reserve and any other list.
Still, the Raiders will have enough money to make a few more moves, if the need arises.

    Tiger Woods told USA TODAY in an interview “I get juiced up for any Raider game.” “I text them to see if they are OK and I get texts back while they are in the locker room getting worked on. They text stuff like they are getting bandaged up and they don’t know if they are going to be able to play but they are going to try.”…………………
    Wood’s said he is optimistic for this year. “We have a pretty good offense,” Woods said. “If we stay healthy we could be very good.” “Now if we could only stop somebody…”

  • Thec

    From a business perspective, and finnancial considerations, I doubt we bring anyone in before gameday.

  • guest123

    Kellen Winslow is a washed up prima donna TE who won’t block for anyone, won’t practice on Wednesdays because he thinks he’s above it, taps his helmet after every catch, biotches at the coaches and teammates if he’s not getting targeted. He’s a cancer who doesn’t realize he’s barely worth league min salary.

  • chargerschoke

    We should have division lead by week 5 bye, ponies, sparks, and squaws have very tough road schedules early in season. We beat sparks and ponies early and it’s a cruise to playoffs! We have players not afraid to hit now!

    Winslows does not fit the current org mantra.

    We want character guys, football players, not characters.

    patriots are attempting to change football…

    They may go 5 TE’s

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

    Pat Kirwan said in today’s column that more teams may be going with a 12 package instead of an 11 this season because they prefer the matchup a TE gives them vs a typical slot corner. Belichick may be ahead of the curve here.

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Says something that the Pats brought in Winslow, with Cooley available.

  • eastoaklandraider

    peace out thec holla at you later

  • Dakota

    Bilicheat collects TEs like Gruden collected QBs.

    ive tried a few viptvbox and one more but they both sucked to much pausing.

  • YoungAmerican

    If the Raiders are going to Keep 5 WRs, they should keep 4 TEs. In my opinion, anyway.

  • Raid uh Max

    If I see run up the middle right, run up the middle left, check down pass, punt to open up the game Monday I’m going to be pissed.

  • Raid uh Max

    Oops my bad, I meant play action roll out check down pass.

  • oakfoshow

    Better pick up a couple of wideouts.Face it,ford is a VGina,and Moore hasnt seen any kind of practice since minicamp.Probably wont do jack this year.Great decision on Murphy huh.

    One could make a case that Marcel is the 5th WR & 4th TE..

  • oakfoshow

    #123. unless mcfadden is getting big runs,what you decribed is probably what your gunna see.Than carson rolls to his left eyes down streater and PICK. I will be really pissed.

  • Raid uh Max

    We went from being predictable on defense(which was or downfall last year) to being predictable on offense. You can’t use a predictable system and hope to be successful. If Greg knapp is unable to mix it up and be creative on game day then we will be back to 14 to 21 points a game. Which isn’t going to win very many games. AL SAUNDERS for OC! All in favor say EYE!

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$

    They have 5 WRs, 3 TEs, and 2 FBs.

  • oakfoshow

    EYE.Im in favor of that right now,might as well get it over with because i predict Knapp is not calling plays by week 10.Not all his fault,drippy lippy messed up bad with this wr cor.

  • Raid uh Max

    Greg Knapp is just another one of those copy cat guys who try to mimic anothers successful system. Which is rarely accomplished. Which also implicates that he isn’t very creative.

  • http://www.GodIsImaginary.com RaiderDuck

    LOL at everyone pining after Murphy. He’d be no better than the sixth wideout for us, and we didn’t even keep six.

    YA,

    I wasn’t impressed with Logan Thomas, and I don’t think he is 1st round talent based on yesterday’s game.

  • oakfoshow

    Raiderduck. I’d rather go with a guy who won the starting job last year than an undrafted rookie.

    Disagree. Streater has the potential to be really good. Murphy is a big ol’ slab of mediocrity.

    ===========

    I hesitate to scout a guy based on one game, but those accuracy issues are something he’s going to have to fix. He’s only a couple years removed from playing TE, so he looks like a prospect who’s going to take some development. Could definitely scare teams away from using a 1st round pick on him, in spite of his rare physical traits.

  • oakfoshow

    I really hope streater proves me wrong,but history says very unlikely.Undrafted rookie with 19 catches in college.Logic says not ganna happen captain.

  • http://www.GodIsImaginary.com RaiderDuck

    New post.

  • kidseven

    Criner is real. Hope he can go. Streater is solid, but Criner can be spectacular. Would love to see a healthy Ford, DMoore and Criner lineup some day, but that’s apparently too much to ask.

  • oakfoshow

    “Streater is solid” Yea,cause he has proven that with those 19 catches in college. WHEW I feel better.

  • mcfadden20.

    We will be okay on O , lots of drives were stalled by not punching it in, in the red zone and throwing stupid ints

  • kidseven

    Agree with Oakfoshow–I don’t see Streater playing much after a few of these other guys get healthy. I love his hands, but IMO, people were getting a little too excited about his simply catching the ball.

    It’s sad that’s it’s come to that for Raider WRs, but if you can stay healthy and make the simple catches you’re the next Tim Brown.

    Even DHB, with his very questionable hands, is much more valuable than Streater at this point because he’s a real threat to put points on the board even on those comeback routes. Playmakers are where he value is at. That’s why I think Criner will be a much bigger deal than Streater in the end.

  • kidseven

    By “solid” I mean reliably catches passes–nothing more. Preseason doesn’t mean much, but doing reasonably well against other teams staters is a good indication–probably as much as college success.
