DT Kelly joins sidelined players

Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly is not practicing today as a result of a sore foot. Not sure if this qualifies as a setback, given he practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday.
Fellow starting defensive tackle Richard Seymour still is battling a sore knee. Therefore, it’s likely that primary backup Desmond Bryant will see more playing time inside, with rookie Christo Bilukidi also in line for more snaps.
The fact Kelly is watching practice bodes well for his playing Sunday. If his foot was severely hurt, it’s doubtful that he would be standing around on a cold day.

– Right offensive tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot) and tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring) are the only other players on the 53-man roster unable to practice today.
Of the three, Gordon is the one with a best chance of playing Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Even so, he hasn’t practiced at all this week, so coach Dennis Allen, no doubt, would feel a lot better about using Gordon if he gets to see him on the field Friday.

– This is the day of the week that offensive coordinator Greg Knapp and defensive coordinator Jason Tarver speak with the media.
So, stay tuned for their takes on how much progress the offense and defense made during the bye week and what changes they made, if any, to help jump-start their struggling units.

    Our offense needed an identity from last year.

    One week we rush for 170 yards, the next week 50.

    One week we score 34 points, the next week 13.

    Not saying we gained an identity so far, at least not a good one lol, but you couldn’t count on anything offensively last year.
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    That happened after we lost DMAC. He was 1st in yards and YPC before he was injured. You can’t say we didn’t have an identity when we were top 5 in rushing yards.

    Any of you see the Lake Show get straight up FIZZLE last night? Steven Nash LAID THE LUMBER and took that jam to the next level

    The camera couldn’t help but stop on the Beeech Diggity and DJ Fresh Beatz rockin’ out in the stands

    We were doing our new dance, the Certified Platinum Hizzy Shuffle (CPHS, holla)

    And, ahhhh yeah …. them hizzies showed up and then some

    Stopping at Costco on the way home to stock up on cases of Magnums, if you know what I am talking about (I am talking about the fact I used all of my condoms during non-stop intercourse and must replenish)

    Hopefully he’ll be ready for the Jax game or after. IMO, he was playing the best outta our garbage secondary. Him going down, really took a blow to the D.

  • JohnnyRaider

    Now is a good time to cut and try to get some draft picks for Kelly and Seymour now. Also not a bad idea to get rid of McClain now too. Raiders cut loose Meatoga a DT, need to bring him back and put him on the line in a rotation, guy was a beast for Cincy in preseason. We are getting no production out of Kelly and Seymour.

    Hey Porkran, here’s an idear, how about a new post when you first get in, in the morning. It’s not easy being on the East Coast and having to wait til my afternoon coffee at work to read something new.

  • RaiderDebo

    If we have to face a 5-0 team on Sunday, I’m glad it’s the Falcons. This team smells like a fraud to me. It took colossal fckups from Cam and Haruki Nakamura to escape at home against the Panthers. Palmer isn’t the run/pass threat Cam is, but I’ve got to think coming off a bye we’ve got some tricks up our sleeve. And if we can just get a little pressure on Capt. Longneck, he’ll fold like a tent. With the best supporting cast in the NFL around him, we’ve got to “cut off the head”. DA knows that. Have a feeling about this one. Gonna take the Raiders for $50 on the money line.

    Agreed. He can fire up that D. Although this would never happen, it would be interesting to see the results of this line:

    UT – Houston

  • eastoaklandraider

    just act like this is another bye week and start to think how we can beat Jags. My thoughts are of course we need to shut down MJD so 8 men in the box and make the young QB beat us right? But wait what the hell happened in MIA? fck.

  • Just Fire Baby

    The best thing could happen with TK and Seymour as far as trying to trade them now or whatever, is for them to leave this offseason and have another time sign them (the key part).

    Supp draft picks baby!!!!

    We will get more that way than via a midseason trade.
