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.

    The season is over realistically at 3-5. No way they catch denver.. let alone beat denver this year.

    Its not like Raiders were gonna make a playoff deep push anyhow. Raiders still cant stop McGahee nor Manning.

    So what should we do ? give up and get better draft position ? What has the better draft position done for us in the last 10 years?

    There is plenty of talent to win games but great coaches don’t ask players to do something they cannot DO and to ask Palmer to throw 60 times is freaking ASININE. slow it down give him options run it EVEN if you don’t gain a yard but give him a play off here and there so he doesn’t feel like EVERY play is his to make.

    You can win with ALEX SMITH dammit why can’t you win with Palmer unless you’re just tooo damn stupid as an OC to get it done.

    Palmer did great, don’t forget his 1st half TD pass to Hagan that was negated by Smith holding ========================

    And the funny part was, from what I could see on the two replays, was Smiths’ guy pressuring Palmer. If it was, Smith can’t even hold well.

  • Raider E

    Palmer got nailed by Smith’s man and the reciever made absolutely no play on the ball.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Krapp LOVES throwing short of the sticks.

    That’s been his M.O. all through the pre-season when everyone was saying ‘he’s just not showing anything now’ – and it’s remained his M.O. through the regular season.

    My favorite Krapp ‘throw it short of the sticks’ moment this year came in game one.

    Remember the 1 yard pass to Myers in the left flat on 3rd and 3 ? That was a beauty !

    No first down. Punt time. Punt blocked.

    Great play calling, coordinating and coaching.

    “Didn’t want to tip his hand in the pre-season” huh ?

    LMAO.

    Same Krapp in the regular season.

    Won’t be seeing that Krapp in the POST season, cuz we ain’t getting there.

  • Dakota

    Put Palmer on the 49ers and they win the SB.

    So we just need a great defense!

  • Priesttj12

    Here’s a little known fact;

    Palmer is 2-17 when throwing over 40 passes……….now do you get my drift he’s just not what top shelf efficient passer. he’s more like Eli Manning instead of Peyton Manning the more you put on him is when he starts to falter.

    Eli will throw some crazy picks pick scare the crap out of you with his arm. Peyton will efficiently slice you to pieces like Montana with very few mistakes. You have to know who your player is.

    sad. the palmer apologist simply cant come to grips with the failure that is the carson trade. Instead of being able to admit that 28 turn overs and 7 wins in 18 games is abysmal, they want to blame a dead al davis, wide receivers , o-line, ghandi, mcdevils frnech fries the tooth fairy and so on.

  • aig-raiders

    Fact of the matter is the pass protection was not there at all, especially in the 4th quarter. Palmer had to take chances on throws right before he got hit. We got away with it and even got away with it on that 2 point conversion. But being this a young team with young WRs, it bit us in the a$$ at the end. I have no problem with yesterday’s offense. It was good to see our offense can move and score at will when we stopped force feeding DMAC. Our Oline is not very good right now. We are better off dinking and dunking to set up the draw play. Even Reece got a few good runs as the RB.

  • mcfadden20.

    It was either Palmer’s arm fell off , or receiver ran a wrong route , or he got hit in the process ,no way a pass is 20 yards off for any other reason , he was connecting on the fade routes all game long

  • Raider E

    He actually broke that tackle and was still standing when Criner reeled it in.

    But a great play that could have been picked as well.

    There’s always a good and a bad outcome.

    Mcfadden20—don’t bother with beech. He knows he’s not real. For whatever reason, he has posted the same fantasy here for 7 years. He has admitted he thinks of himself as a “personality” that’s here to annoy people. He will never respond to logic. He repeatedly claims “beatdowns” and “meltdowns” from his “minions” that no sane person could ever see. He is an exercise in futility. A waste of time. There is unfortunately no way to block him and no way to argue with him. He is just like a retarded energizer bunny. And he hides behind anonymity so u can’t smash the bunny. Watch for his moronic response. And his constant over emphasis on strippers, etc. doesn’t hide his preoccupation for talking about ur weiner.

    Just think of a closeted gay man who wishes to talk about weiners and other male parts to a bunch of guys. The easiest way to do it is make sure u talk a lot about getting laid by strippers. It disguises ur true intentions. Or at least at first glance. He’s very gay.

  • Kiwi_Blade

    Good news that Darren could be back soon.
    The injury should never have happened.
    We know that the ZBS takes three long hard years to implement correctly.
    Does anyone wonder why Dennis was given a four year contract?
    Most likely Reggie and Dennis discussed the offensive schemes that gave Dennis the most trouble when trying to defend against it in Denver.
    Dennis knows that a four year contract gives him three years to get the ZBS scheme purring like a Rolls Royce engine in 4th gear.
    Unfortunately the inconsistent early results has led to a diluting down of the scheme.
    Diluting down (incorporating some mixed blocking) has been an absolute disaster and has led to the injury of our star running back.
    Going with a mixed blocking scheme has just confused the players.
    The Raiders must stick to the initial plan of pure ZBS and perfect it.
    Our prototype engine is now clogged and needs to be cleansed.
    The engine needs to be flushed and purified with new oil.
    The loss of Wiz Snr has been a spanner in the works for far too long.
    An assistant line coach must be brought in to help Frank implement the scheme.
    The season is not over yet.
    3&5 is unexpected but can be improved upon in the second half of the year.
    Dilution has cost us dearly.
    I Say no more dilution.
    Go back to the original plan.
    Go back to the three year blueprint.
    Go back to Pure ZBS.

    actually the answer is that palmer is a gutlesss turn over machine always has been. he is the tin man has no heart and will throw more picks to lose games in the crunch. he simply cant be trusted to throw it too often or when i counts.

    maybe knapp should dumb down the offense and let him dink and dunk reading only half the field

    they are intentionally calling plays that won’t work ? most of the plays are designed to get more than enough yards and then some are designed to go underneath and gain yards after the catch, can’t do anything if the guys who are running longer routes are not getting open , and only open guys get tackled right before the stick… learn some football KK , this is not madden 13

    The management basicall mismanaged the talent on this team and no one wants to admit it. Letting go of Bush was a BUGE mistake I said it when it happened.

    ADMIT IT!!! Not having Bush is hurting the production on this offense and letting go of Murphy was also a mistake. But the basic misunderstanding by fans is they look at the stats these players put up on the teams they’re on now and assume it computes.

    It doesn’t because the way we would have used them is totally different from their present teams. The Olineman we let go is hurting this team Bruce Campbell and Barksdale were MISTAKES. Tell me we couldn’t use Wimbley and I’ll call you a liar.

    But Sir Reggie wants to establish his “OWN GUY” so he does a bunch of crap before assessing these players roles and I think made hasty decisions that are having ripple effects as we speak.

  • Raider E

    Palmer has only been sacked 14 times, one of the lowest numbers in the league.

    We have a run blocking issue, and a RT issue.

    Besides that, Palmer balled yesterday and came up short period.

    The question I have is why do we only move the ball when we have to?

    Mistic, will you say, outright and for the record that Carson Palmer has no heart?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    this guy is saying exactly what i told you leading into the bucs game

    The Raiders are a very flawed football team that plays undisciplined, inept football on a week-to-week basis and are lucky enough to have faced two of the worst teams in the league in the first half and a Pittsburgh Steelers team without its best defensive player.

    Through seven games, it’s clear that Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen will have to turn over a large portion of the roster for this team to become anything more than mediocre. The glimpses of greatness show what happens when the players execute as a team, but there are far too many breakdowns from week to week.

    The 2012 Oakland Raiders have now revealed their true character. They have trouble executing even the most simple of plays, and that makes the job of the coaches that much more difficult. The Raiders are a bad football team right now and have a long way to go before even becoming an average football team capable of beating teams like the Bucs at home. – christopher hansen

  • Raider E

    Mistic1,

    Give Palmer a little credit for christs sakes. Anyone who watched the game knows he was the best player and leader in a black jersey.

    As for yesterday, the defense lost the game. McClain was a big culprit again. Although the bucks offense is red hot. The run game was ridiculously bad. Palmer was fantastic. A bad pick at the end but as those two final deep throws were happening, I was saying “why are we fuxking throwing deep right now”? Plenty of time. Down 3. Get into GF range with some first downs and them try to get closer. Take the Ted if u can but get the fg for sure. I like the zbs. I don’t think it’s why the run game sucks. But knapps play calling is very questionable.
