DHB, Gordon downgraded to `out’

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, September 29th, 2012 at 1:40 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders downgraded wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussion) and tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring) to out Saturday, meaning neither will play against the Denver Broncos.

It’s not surprise Heyward-Bey won’t be playing, given that as of Friday he hadn’t passed any of his concussion tests and the severity of the blow he took from Pittsburgh’s Ryan Mundy.

Gordon’s absence will be felt in that the Raiders use a lot of packages with three tight ends and now will have only two _ Brandon Myers and David Ausberry _ active.

Gordon is also a core special teams player and leads the Raiders with four special teams tackles.

The Denver Broncos announced the promotion of Duke Ihenacho and Mike Mohammad from the practice squad. Ihenacho, a safety from San Jose State, is the brother of Carl Ihenacho, who recently went in other direction _ from 53-man roster to practice squad. Mohammad is the former Cal standout.

    Does the 1st guy EVER bring down Marshawn Lynch?

    Dude is an animal

  • xraided

    yes he’s an Oakland boy too.
    wish the Raiders had made a trade for him.
    yes, that means paying two top tier RBs, so be it!

  • DJ Johnny

    Do the Chiefs have any major injuries? I wanna give that Hub Arkush dipschytt some crap for picking KC to go to SB.

    I know he’ll come back at me with some lame excuse as to why they are sucking.

  • DJ Johnny

    I hope Carolina gives Atl. a game today. It will give me some hope that we may have some sort of chance against them.

    Right now, they look unstoppable.

  • Plunketthead

    What a beautiful day. I may not have a job but the wWeather is great, I am still harvesting veggies, firewood is all stockpiled, propane tanks are filled, bills are paid , pantry is full and I have a big pot of beans, Yummy, yummy beans, mmmmm mmmmmm

    that are almost done, just in time for the best part of the day.
    I get to watch the Raiders roll over the team I hate more then any other and have for some time now.

    Yes I am indeed blessed

    Wave of the future keeping Atl in check????

  • J Hill

    Told you guys long ago that the KC QB was Chrissy Everett reincarnated.

    They will finish last in the division.

    Denverwill finish 3rd.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Jets need to end all the suspense and roll with Tebow.

    As long as Matty ice stays on the field. Having two uber WR studs helps some as well.

    Some say the Pats are in trouble because the Oline is not keeping Tom upright.
    I think Tom is finally feeling his age and Matty is a long ways from that

    HAHA! more to come! he’ll have half the PI calls he did last year, but that’s still horrible for any single player.

  • J Hill

    If our #1 QB was a bum like A Smith, you might see a little Pryor trickery mixed in.

    I liked Cappy coming out of UNR, has a rocket arm.

    You would think the Jets would be prepared for the rinky-dink offense, with Tebow on their sidelines.
    ====================================================
    Kapernick has all the tools to excel on Sunday. He’s in an ideal situation in SF and should eventually surplant Smith.

    Wonder if TP will even be active today ?

    Someone tell Krapp it might be a good idea to activate TP and show some of that ‘rinky-dink’ offense (worked pretty well on the 17 yd run and TD later).

    A little creative thinking can’t hurt.

    At the very least it would give opposing defenses something else to think about and prepare for.

    Guess it makes more sense to keep TP in street clothes and continue to go with Matt Lice as the backup even though there’s no long term percentage in that.

    Krapp is so dense that it wouldn’t surprise me to see the Raids with a 2-6 record and TP still inactive on Sundays.

    Actually shouldn’t blame Krapp for that if it happens. That would really be an indictment of DA.

    Hope I’m wrong and we’re talking about a Raid victory later.

    Off to the book. Good day, gents.

  • arkraider

    I think Jano breaks the record today except I think he nails one from 66 out!!

  • Just Win Baby

    I hope Janikowski doesn’t have to kick anything but extra points today.

  • http://repealitnow.org MistaBrown

    Sexy Rexy has ran his course as a HC. He has that team going nowhere and fast. Back to being a DC, thats all you are big guy, deal with it.

  • http://repealitnow.org MistaBrown

    Palmer is locked in and in a rhythm there’s no need to fix what aint broke. Pryor needs to keep learning and growing. Fk Kapernick and the 9ers and what they do!

    Thanks for your input now go sit down.
