McFadden, Goodson get MRIs on high-ankle sprains

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Monday that running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson suffered high-ankle sprains against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
McFadden underwent MRI and X-rays on his injury, and the tests returned negative. Allen said McFadden has not been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
As for Goodson, he is undergoing an MRI today. The results likely won’t be revealed until Wednesday.
For now, Allen said he is inclined to stand pat until he learns more about the severity of the injuries to his Nos. 1 and 2 running backs.
Once he knows more, he will decide whether to stick with the backs he has on his roster, sign a free agent or sign rookie Jeremy Stewart from the practice squad.
Second-year player Taiwan Jones won’t “earn” more playing time until he shows that he can hold on to the ball better than he has this season.
Jones bobbled a kick-off and mishandled a pitch from Marcel Reece on a reverse in the regular-season opener, and he didn’t handle the ball again until Sunday.
Against the Bucs, Jones fumbled at the end of a reception from Shane Lechler on a fake punt that got stuffed well short of the first-down marker. He got blasted after a 2-yard run in his only other touch.

– Allen said right offensive tackle Khalif Barnes is slated to return to practice Wednesday after missing the past six games with a groin injury that required surgery.
It’s not a certainty that Barnes will reclaim his starting spot from Willie Smith once he is healthy enough to play. Allen said rookie Tony Bergstrom is being considered for the spot, given Smith’s struggles from time to time.

– Cornerback Shawntae Spencer also has missed the past six games. For him, his absence owed to a right foot injury.
On Tuesday, he is scheduled to return to the practice field to gauge his progress in his recovery.

– Allen said he still hasn’t decided what to do with linebacker Aaron Curry. One thing is for sure, time is running out.
Curry’s 21-day evaluation period ends Wednesday. The Raiders have until then to decide whether to activate Curry to the 53-man roster, place him on season-ending injured reserve or waive him outright.
Complicating matters is the potential need for the Raiders to free up a roster spot for cornerback Ron Bartell and, perhaps, a running back if McFadden’s and/or Goodson’s injuries are serious enough to warrant adding another back.

– Defensive lineman Desmond Bryant was released from a local hospital Monday, and he is resting at home, Allen said.
Bryant was admitted to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley on Sunday after complaining of a fast, irregular heartbeat.
He has not been cleared to return to practice, Allen said. However, there’s still a chance that he will play Sunday against the Ravens, Allen said.

– Allen had this to say, when asked if there have been any discussion about re-signing veteran cornerback Stanford Routt, who was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday:
“No,” Allen said, without elaborating.
There you have it. It doesn’t appear as if the Raiders are going to revisit the Routt situation eight months or so after they waived him in a salary-cap dump.

    I test-drove a 2000 corvette the other day…..really not that impressed.

    I think I would rather buy a new mustang or camaro for the price of an older corvette.

    What is the point of being able to go 200+ MPH, when if you do you just end up dead or in jail?

    Who cares??? The issue is that Palmer isn’t the solution!!! For a 1st and 2nd rounder, he was supposed to be.

    ++++++++++

    Palmer is supposed to fix an abysmal running game and a defense that would’ve had a hard time stopping a Division III runner yesterday?
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Fair enough. But if he can’t fix those problems, why the hell did we ever trade for him??? We could have put Ceasar from Planet of the Apes under center to miss the playoffs last year and go 3-5 this year. Meanwhile, we would have had our 1st and 2nd rounders to help “fix the problems”.

    Anybody can look good with best running game in the NFL, compare Freeman’s stats from this year to last year and maybe you will figure out why the big difference
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    100% agreed! Precisely why the Palmer trade was so dumb. We could have drafted Doug Martin this year with Ceasar at QB and be leading the league in rushing.

    —-
    Doug Martin alone wouldn’t have made the difference, you need O line and good scheme , you need some kinda pass threat to negate 8 men in the box , which TB have with Vjax and M Williams

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Ummm, we don’t have pass threats now???? Then, how the hell did Palmer throw for over 400 yards yesterday?? I don’t remember him catching all those passes by himself.

    What a dumbass interception……..man!
    ========================================

    It really was. Again, you have to blame the coaches for this. The place was rocking, we were in the game, and you have to settle Palmer down. He got wound up trying to make a play and it cost us. In fact if we scored on that drive, TB would have just handed it off the Doug Martin and watch him run the length of the field for the winning score with three seconds left.

    I had thought the plan was going to be to move Wimbley to RDE and put Shaughnessy at LDE and move Houston to the DT rotation.

    I think the Raiders keep Wimbley if he restructures. Remember, McKenzie didn’t cut him until the last possible day. Don’t blame Wimbley for not wanting to restructure, but it’s not like Reggie didn’t want to trya nd keep him around.

    @@@@@@@@@@

    As it turns out, we could have kept him and just not signed Briesel for 5 mil/yr. Who would play guard you ask? Well in my version of the O-line, Wiz and Cooper stay put.

    Ok, how about this…
    Do you guys think it’s fair that Palmer gets all the rap in here for losing the game yesterday? Some people have an agenda against Palmer, which is fine, everyone is entitled to their own opinion! However, was it Palmer’s fault that JC went down and Boller was who we all knew he to be and get traded to the Raiders giving up the 2012 1st round pick and the conditional 2013 2nd rounder? In years past, I have never seen any quarter back from being down 18 and at least a shot! We came back against a pretty good Pitt team down 10! And for once, I do not see any quit in the team! Defense, it looked like they did yesterday, but not the offense!
