Gordon, Jones return to practice

Tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring) and running back Taiwan Jones (knee) returned to practice, placing the Raiders at near full strength heading into the Kansas City Chiefs game.
Gordon missed the past two games with an injury he suffered two days before Oakland’s game against the Denver Broncos. Jones got hurt in practice last week, and he didn’t play against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It appears as if both will be ready for the Chiefs this Sunday.
Right offensive tackle Khalif Barnes (groin) and cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot) aren’t practicing once again. Coach Dennis Allen said Monday that both players are “doubtful” for the Chiefs game.
That means Willie Smith is slated to start in Barnes’ spot for the fifth straight game, with Michael Huff replacing Spencer for the fifth consecutive game, too.

– Linebacker Aaron Curry is practicing for the fourth straight time since he was removed from the physically unable to perform list.
It remain uncertain whether he will be activated for the Chiefs game, if at all before the Raiders are forced to decide whether to activate him to their 53-man roster, waive him or place him on season-ending injured reserve.
Allen said Monday that the Raiders don’t have any definitive plans on how they’re going to proceed right now. The focus is on seein how well Curry responds in his return from sore knees.
The Raiders have two more weeks before they are forced to make a move with Curry, though they can activate him at any time during the 21-day evaluation window.

– The six players who suffered injuries against the Jaguars are practicing today. That makes it likely that they will play against the Chiefs.
The six are: wide receiver Rod Streater (knee) defensive lineman Dave Tollefson (shoulder), linebacker Miles Burris (elbow), defensive end Desmond Bryant (elbow) linebacker Keenan Clayton (shoulder) and running back Mike Goodson (hip).

– The Raiders signed center Jason Slowey to their practice squad. In turn, they waived center Colin Miller to make room for Slowey.
Slowey was a sixth-round pick of the 49ers this year. The 49ers waived Slowey in reducing their roster to 75 players in late August.
Slowey is wearing No. 63.

    We should definitely start looking at potential OCs as well as draft picks. Even if we float around .500 for the rest of the year, the offensive staff and Special Teams is going to need an overhaul. We got Allen too late last year to make enough of a push with position coaches, in my opinion.

    Palmer is on track to join 2002 NFL MVP Rich Gannon as the only quarterbacks in franchise history to eclipse the 4,600-yard mark in a single-season. Gannon passed for 4,689 yards during the `02 season when he led Oakland to its first Super Bowl appearance in nearly two decades.

    I’ve just completed a brand new device that’s going to make nerd flame-outs even more enjoyable!

    It’s called the Meltdown Machine 9000, and it correctly calculates the level of a goober’s meltdown based on the nervous/hysterical nature of their blog posting

    Here’s how it works:
    1 – No Meltdown
    2 – Here it comes
    3 – Fast fade
    4 – Point of no return
    5 – Total Meltdown

    This is going to be hella dope, can’t wait to try it out on a goober soon!

  • RaiderRetribution

    Francies makes one more big tackle on a Raider; he’ll be the one released to make room for Curry.

  • inonewordraider

    is this year exact oppostite of last year: Where HC drastically improved D but had incompetent DC, whereas this year HC improves D but has incompetent OC? if so does Reggie need to step in?

  • RaiderRetribution

    Power backs such as Hillis and Turner don’t hurt us, never have It’s always been the Paytons, Sanders, Tomlinsons, Petersons etc.

  • The Big Banana

    So Hali called the Raiders dirty and cheap shot artists. Trying to get the zebras’ attention?

  • Gdog

    My instincts tells me that Routt is not the type that is looking forward to playing against DHB or Moore. I think he is chitting his bed right now worrying about getting torched.

    Hopefully our clueless OC, or at least CP in the no-huddle (if we even see it) can take advantage of this.

    The dude holds on for dear life when scared.

  • MiamiRaider78

    It was the second game this season in which quarterback Carson Palmer has engineered a fourth-quarter comeback. Both times he did it while running the no-huddle.

    Palmer completed only 56.5 percent of his passes against the Jaguars but was 9 of 13 for 118 yards while running the no-huddle

    Little nuggets.

    recently everyone has good running games against us, Tebow and Mcgahee back in the day Okoye, Eddie George, Turner, MJD, Shaun Alexander…

    The networks here follow Patriots and New Orleans, both of which I don’t care to watch:

    Brees licks his fingers way too much for me – nasty.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    this soap opera is building into a crescendo. First the subplots, whos fualt is it that dmac has under performed? Can carson palmer get back on track, and return to ball security football? Just how bad is this team? Is less romac and less seymore better for this defense? Is huff a starting quality corner, that was miscast at safety? Is mm34 increased play time also giving the beleaguered defense a much needed boost?

    Here is what i think. this team outright stinks, coaches and players do not match. This team lacks real leadership, and talent at key positions. I see that some are getting from feasting on bottom feeders, but the cooked jaguar carcass doesnt mask the odor of this years squad.

    Even a win at kc will only serve to feed the delusion of some fans, that believe this team has some how turned a corner. the defense has shown marginal improvement, and that is encouraging as there is now a foot hold to build on. on the offensive side we are still clearly reeling form the loss of hujack and last years key starters. The oline which was sold as an upgrade has fallen flat in the run game, and couldnt open holes with tnt. DHB is not getting the ball thrown his way and he is one of our most explosive play makers. the qb continues to turn the ball over and has an alarming touchdown to td ratio, in fact he has more turn overs than wins as a raider. The qb also continues to prove he will never be a qb that move his feet, and is limited to dropping back and stepping up on a straight line, anything beyond that is a disaster waiting to happen.

    drink it up, this team cant win more than 4-5 games this year

    I’m sick of Brees…Maybe cuz he’s so good and doesn’t hang in the pocket long enough for someone to clock him? Just like Manning.

    You are the one suffering a level 4 meltdown: your Master says so.

    You should take a poo tranfusion, or what is fomally known as a transpoosion.

    This cures watery diarrhea caused by a bug introduced through anal sex and overuse of Preparation H.

    It must be tough in the brown business to put up with such a malady.

    Now bow down to your Master, run over to UCLA Hospital to receive your “transpoosion.”
