Huff taking reps at cornerback


Career free safety Michael Huff is taking reps at cornerback in practice today in another sign of the Raiders’ dearth of healthy, experienced cornerbacks.
The Raiders are without season-opening starters Ron Bartell (shoulder) and Shawntae Spencer (foot) because of injuries suffered in the first two games.
They signed Brandian Ross from the Green Bay Packers practice squad earlier today as a means of adding some depth. Huff is just another option as the Raiders prepare for a game against the pass-happy Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huff played some cornerback in college, as well as on occasion during his seven-season NFL career. It remains to be seen how much he’ll actually play against the Steelers or the rest of the season.
For now, the projected starters at cornerback are Pat Lee and Joselio Hanson, who also are working there today. Another option is to sign Chimdi Chekwa from the practice squad.

— As expected, Spencer and right offensive tackle Khalif Barnes (groin) aren’t practicing today. Coach Dennis Allen said there’s the potential for both players to miss some time on the heels of their injuries against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

— Ross is practicing today, a few hours after signing with the Raiders. He is wearing No. 29.

— Middle linebacker Rolando McClain and backup cornerback Coye Francies weren’t participating in practice or the stretching during the media access window.
We won’t know about their status until speaking with Allen in about two hours.

    The Raids are foolish to not utilize the genius of Greg Knapp to it’s fullest extent.

    Offensive coordinator isn’t enough.

    He should be Head Coach, defensive coordinator and GM too.

    Unleash Greg Knapp.

  • KK, I found the def of marxism right here. Thanks to your marxist hero!

    ““I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution,” he said, “because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level, to make sure everybody’s got a shot.”

    KK, you asked for the definition of Marxism. I guess your google search engine is broke? Here it is in 0ba ma’s own words.
    so then in your privitized world we should pay for police and firefighters through private industry, pay for k-high school, do away with aid for college, do away with goverment jobs, unions, libraries, public parks and beaches correct?
