Condo: Two tests down, two to go

Raiders long-snapper Jon Condo said following practice Friday he’s halfway home in terms of being cleared to play against the Miami Dolphins.

Condo will fly to Miami with the club shortly, as well practice squad long-snapper Nick Guess. If Condo isn’t cleared, Guess will be activated and make his NFL debut, with Jacoby Ford possibly being moved to the injured reserve list.

Condo said he felt “pretty good” while going through warmups with his teammates.

“It’s like four tests and I’ve passed two of them so far,” Condo said. “It’s a process. I’m making the trip and that’s really all I know.”

The injury occurred when Condo took a knee to the back of the head from teammate Brandon Myers following a punt.

“I saw the knee to the back of the head and then my face going into the dirt,” Condo said. “I don’t know what one it was that got me.”

Condo felt particularly bad for linebacker Travis Goethel, who was pressed into emergency service, with his three snaps leading to nine San Diego points.

“I mean, it’s just something you don’t want to see it all,” Condo said. “It was tough. I have the most respect for Travis going in there in that situation. It happened, you can’t go back and change. Just learn from it and go on to the next game.”

– Stefen Wisniewski will start at center against Miami, coach Dennis Allen confirmed.

“He’s back healthy and he executed this week in practice,” Allen said. “So I think he’s prepared and ready to go.”

Wisniewski wanted to play against San Diego but in retrospect can see sitting him in favor of Alex Parsons was the correct call.

“I’d missed three weeks of practice so I missed a lot of reps,” Wisniewski said. “Getting those reps back helps you mentally and physically and just feel sharp and confident in there.”

– Raiders injury report: WR Jacoby Ford (foot-out), CB Ron Bartell (shoulder-out), WR Juron Criner (ankle-questionable), C-G Alex Parsons (shoulder-questionable), RB Taiwan Jones (ribs-questionable), LB Rolando McClain (ankle-questionable), C Jon Condo (concussion-questionable), TE David Ausberry (shoulder-probable), K Sebastian Janikowski (left groin-probable), S Michael Mitchell (ribs-probable), WR Denarius Moore (hamstring-probable), TE Brandon Myers (shoulder-probable), DT Richard Seymour (knee-probable)

Bartell said his absence is estimated between “four to six weeks, although I hope it’s less.”

– If Jones can’t return kickoffs, Allen said the duty would fall to running back Mike Goodson.

    Here’s another bit of advice for the antisemitic clowns that are so abundent – you better hope that Israel takes out Iran’s nuke project.

    There were a bunch of fools that condemned Israel taking out Iraq’s reactor. Thank God Israel acted when she did.

    Newsflash – Iran’s real target is the ‘great satan’.


    USA has nothing to fear from Iran. Americans would wipe them out before they ever had missile capable of hitting US.

    You dont know what they intended free speech for because you clearly havent read any of their books.

    Do some reading before you start speculating as to what their intentions were.

    And then ask yourself if their intentions were to have your son go fight wars for our corporations interests so that we could colonize and oppress others? I think not, we were once one of those colonies. Thats why our founding fathers revolted.

    It’s my opinion. I feel I can shoot a person if he insults my dead kid while I’m trying to burry them.
    Maybe if you had kids you can understand that. I never said it wasn’t subjective, but that’s my opinion. We need limitations just like we did with commercials. Can you say anything you want in a commercial?

    Im ok with anything being on TV. I dont really care. Anything is posted on the internet and the sun hasnt burned out yet.

    Ask yourself why you can show someone getting murdered or raped in a commercial yet you cant show some tits? Its ridiculous.

    Raiders put Bartell, Ford on IR

    Posted by Mike Florio on September 15, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    AP
    The Raiders had a decision to make.

    Under the new injured reserve rules, one player could be put on IR and designated for return later this year. On Saturday, the Raiders placed both cornerback Ron Bartell (pictured) and receiver Jacoby Ford on IR.

    Bartell will be able to return, Ford won’t.

    Ford suffered a foot injury during the preseason. The play looked fairly innocuous and the injury supposedly was minor. Recently, however, he underwent surgery.

    Bartell broke a shoulder blade on Monday night against the Chargers.

    By rule, Bartell may return to practice in six weeks. He also may return to games in eight weeks. If/when he returns to practice, Bartell has only three weeks to return to the active roster.

    Cornerback Coye Francies was signed to fill one roster spot, and long snapper Nick Guess was elevated from the practice squad to fill the roster.

    If you are asking me WHY their are limits, I’d say its because of people like you who think that what you find offensive, everyone should find offensive or distasteful.

    BTW, I understand the video that has so enraged the Muslim world was made by some Coptic Christians.

    Don’t know what’s in it exactly, but I suspect it has something to do with Mo marrying 9 year old Aisha, misogyny, mass murder to expand Dar al Islam — just stuff that’s written in the Koran.

    Don’t know why Coptics would be upset with Muslims.
    They’ve been so kind and benevolent to them.

    I don’t need to know how the Islamofascists wipe out ‘infidel’ non-believers all around the globe in order to recognize the danger they pose.

    I just take a look at how they treat each other and wonder what they’d do to me if given the chance.

    I have no problems whatsoever with indiduals of any faith that are peaceful and do not wish to impose their faith upon me.

    Unfortunately, there’s millions of Islamofascists with an agenda of waging war against Dar al Harb.

    Burying your head in the sand doesn’t change that reality and certainly won’t make them disappear.

    When your nation is smaller than the state of New Jersey and surrounded by 22 nations with a combined land mass twice that of the USA, with a population of 500 million Koranimals dedicated to wiping you out – you do what you have to do.

    You don’t worry about morons using terms like Israhell and calling you terrorists.

    ++++++++++

    Where do i start with this tirade?

    Israel, was a created in 1948 by the balfour agreement. this agreement was established by the rothschilds and the other so called jewish banksters.

    Israel claims that the land was given to them by “god” however, most of those so called jewish people
    or it has been estimated 95% of those people are not jews, but are converts from europe, are khazarians.
    Hence the tern “jewish”.

    Becuase one does not agree with you’re christian based point of view, doesnt mean you should start name calling.
