DHB on the field, catching passes

The most notable sight at Raiders practice Tuesday was the sight of Darrius Heyward-Bey on the field, catching passes and looking very much like a receiver who will be cleared by the time play resumes following the bye week.

Heyward-Bey, knocked unconscious Sept. 23 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, was running and catching through warmups and drills. It is not known if Heyward-Bey has been cleared for contact and coach Dennis Allen is unavailable to the media Tuesday.

The Raiders practice Tuesday and Wednesday, then are off through Sunday.

Players who were not at practice Tuesday included tackle Khalif Barnes (groin) and corneback Shawntae Spencer (knee), both of whom are out indefinitely.

    Banana, all the proof you need for results was Soup’s first game against the Titans when he looked like a rabbit surrounded by Coyotes. Once he even fell to ground untouched. Guy was JITTERY. Not that I blame him, guy took a heck of a beating in his career…

    I remember the pre season game against Da Bears when they almost knocked his head off. He was really jittery after that.

    “I will say this…you can be a funny guy. I like the wording here.

    You and I both know that claim was made based on last year’s offense. Would Jason succeed with a league-worst running game and no time to throw? You and I know the answer, let’s see if you’re honest about it or if you continue to push your propaganda.”

    Well put Big Banana!

  • JLofty

    I liked Jason Campbell as a human being, but he was a pretty scrubby QB. So what was his excuse for losing the SF game in 2010? Scored less than 10pts and missed a WIDE open Louis Murphy for a TD on a route even Ryan Leaf could’a completed….

    The Raiders have the worst rushing attack in the league through four games at under 61 yards per game

    Man, I hope New Orleans gives San Diego the business this week. I’m talking like 3-4 TD blow out kinda business.

    What was his record for the Raiders in the playoffs KooK?

  • 505raiders

    cp3 has zero moblity stares down his recievers doesnt pump fake or look off the safety and he cant throw people open

    but he throws a nice ball

    that everybody can catch even the defense

    Who cares where JC is at now.

    But he was doing good things for this team b4 injury.. go back on utube and look at his 2011 throws.. look at that buffalo game was a shootout and he kept up.. look at the Texan game again. Even look at his 2010 games against the division.

    Bottom line is Palmer hasnt really shown any real real upgrade and for 8 million dollars more.. HUE F’d up on that one

    Just like HUE is coaching DBacks now.. but he was RIGHT FOR THIS TEAM in a rebuilding year last year. ROOKIE HC 8-8 season.

    Raiders dont have a chance at beating ATL in ATL why? cuz they have no defense. You can be up by 2 tds with 5 mins left and ATL will still come back.

    lol at playoffs this year. Raiders will be done by week 6

    simple honest truth jc was the man here and gave us solid raider football we could be proud of

    I like Jason Campbell and supported Him and Grads while they were here.

    ___________________
    it’s only been four games into the season so i aint gna say he’s elite but up to this point i don’t see him as the problem. How many int’s has he thrown? how many times has he missed the open receiver? who do you suggest we trade for JC? Matt Flynn? or should we start Leinert or TP instead?

    Yeah, it’s a pretty big deal, name another Raider QB with a winning record in the last 10 years

  • RAIDERMAN99

    I’m not a Palmer guy.

    Blasted the trade for him when it went down, even though I predicted it would happen and had CP as my MUP pick when he was still ‘on the couch’.

    That said, I am pleasantly surprised by CP this year.

    I was extremely fearful that we’d be seeing TIM (The Int Machine) Palmer instead of Carson Palmer.

    So far – so good, on the ball security front.

    CP played a great game against Pitt. Some outstanding throws in that one. He won that game for the RAIDS.

    Jason Cantball NEVER won a game for the Raids with his arm.

    I don’t give a fk what any of the JC supporters say.

    JC was a competent game manager at times. That’s it.

    I’ll never forget his game against the Whiners. Or the Titans. Or the Rams. Or the Squeelers.

    JC SUCKED BEYOND BELIEF IN ALL OF THEM.

    I don’t think CP is elite.

    But I do KNOW beyond the shadow of any doubt that he’s light years better than Jason Cantball.

    October 2nd, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    Well if you ask me its Palmer’s fault that we have a first year GM HC OC that just gutted a franchise that was a perennial loser for the last 10 years.

    Now we have a 32nd ranked defense with the worst special teams we have ever seen and an offensive line that cannot pass block or open holes for our RB.

    And then there are the demented fans who are saying that the resolution is to put in the 3rd string rookie at QB…..makes for a long season

  • JLofty

    Daunte Culpepper

  • SaintKaufman

    OK, so you guys continue to beat that dead horse with Mistic. I propose a more practical change and that is to let Jones/Goodsen cut into McFaddens carries.
    One of the cuts we had on Darren coming out of Arkansas was that he was a straight line runner with no swivel. Well, apparently cutting isn’t his thing either. 4 games of him missing holes when they are seldom there is enough for me to say let’s see what Jones can do.

    Ready………complain!

  • Dan78

    I do remember Huff getting a gift in the end zone, I remember DHB breaking a tackle and taking it to the house. What was that a 10 yard pass that he turned into a 60 yard TD. The TEAM played great that game in Houston. I cant say the TEAM played great in Denver last week.
