McFadden, Goodson among four not practicing

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, November 7th, 2012 at 11:57 am in Oakland Raiders.

As expected, running back Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are not practicing today as they recover from high-ankle sprains suffered against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
We won’t have an update on the status of Oakland’s top two running backs until we get a chance to speak with coach Dennis Allen in about 90 minutes.
McFadden underwent X-rays and an MRI soon after his injury. Both returned negative. Goodson had an MRI on Monday. We won’t know the result of that test until we speak with Allen.
For now, the Raiders are making do with second-year back Taiwan Jones and fullback Marcel Reece. It’s conceivable that the Raiders will sign a free-agent back or sign rookie Jeremy Stewart from the practice squad if it reaches the point where McFadden and Goodson are ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Allen said Monday that he hasn’t ruled out McFadden.

– Defensive lineman Desmond Bryant is back at practice today, two days after he was released from a local hospital after complaining of a fast, irregular heartbeat.
That bodes well for his availabilty for the Ravens game, given Allen said he didn’t expect Bryant back this soon.

– Defensive tackle Richard Seymour and cornerback Shawntae Spencer are not practicing today. Seymour has missed several practices in recent weeks, likely because of his chronic knee.
Spencer was slated to hit the field Tuesday as a means of gauging how far his recovery has progressed from a foot injury he suffered Sept. 16.
Allen should provide an update on how things went during Spencer’s workout when we convene with Allen.

– Linebacker Aaron Curry is practicing today for the first time this season as a member of Oakland’s 53-man roster. He was activated Tuesday.
Curry missed some of the offseason workouts, all of training camp and the first eight games while rehabilitating his sore knees.
It remains to be seen how the Raiders intend to use Curry the second half of the season. Best guess is, he will play some on special teams and be a situational player on defense as long as the three starters are healthy.
Curry also could give the Raiders the flexibility to use the 3-4 more than they did the first half of the season. He is versatile enough to play inside, alongside Rolando McClain, in the 3-4, with Miles Burris and Philip Wheeler on the outside.

– No further word yet on whether Allen intends to stick with Willie Smith at right offensive tackle, go back to original starter Khalif Barnes or try rookie Tony Bergstrom.
Barnes returned to practice today after missing most of the past two months with a groin injury that required surgery.
Certain things that take place at practice we aren’t allowed to report upon. Who is taking reps at right offensive tackle right now is one of thoes things.
So, we’ll have to wait and see what Allen says about what’s going on at practice right now.

    you guys love to try and put words i my mouth but the fact is a gave palmer most of the credit for negating the weak pass protection with the dink and dunk offense we employed over the first 5 weeks.

    never have i said anything other than the pass protection has been spotty at best.

    this does not change the fact that interceptions are the responsibility of the qb, and he would be better off taking sacks than forcing interceptions

    Im afraid that the match up in baltimore is not looking very good.

    This team traveling east has one of the worst records in football since forever. Not saying they cant buck the trend or there is anything supernatural at work, but they just havent been a very good road team for quite a few years.

    Flacco & smith vs our dbs is a nightmare. they will carve up our defense like pilgrims carved native Americans at the dinner table.

    This is very interesting and actually backs up what i have said repeatedly. notice on this list that the guys with the most time to throw are the mobile qbs. wilson vick newton griffin would be getting killed even worse is they couldnt buy time and avoid the rush. guys like the manning brothers palmer and brady are at the bottom of the time to throw list as they are stationary targets.

    whats really interesting is that the guys at the bottom manning and brady specifically routinely win make the big plays and avoid the critical turnovers even tough they have very precious few seconds behind the line.

    great post nice stats
