McFadden, Goodson and Seymour not practicing

Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson and defensive tackle Richard Seymour are among the four players not practicing today. Given that, it seems highly unlikely that any of the three will play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen will provide official word on the status of those players within an hour or so. At that time, I will post an update.
Allen also is expected to announce who will start at right offensive tackle — Willie Smith, Khalif Barnes or Tony Bergstrom.
At this point, it appears as if it will be Smith for a seventh straight game. Playing Bergstrom for the first time, on the road, against an active Ravens defense isn’t the best way to ease a rookie into the NFL.
It makes more sense for Allen to wait until the Raiders return to the Coliseum for a game against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 18 if he intends to make the switch to Bergstrom.
It’s also possible that Barnes will reclaim his starting spot for that game after having a second full week to get back into shape after being out for seven weeks with a groin injury that required surgery.
Cornerback Shawntae Spencer is the only other player not at practice today. He almost certainly will be ruled out for Sunday’s game. He has missed the past six games with a foot injury.
With McFadden and Goodson unlikely to play Sunday, it’s time for second-year player Taiwan Jones to show what he can do in a regular-season game.
Jones and fullback Marcel Reece split the reps at running back in practice this week. The only other option available to Allen this late in the process is to sign rookie running back Jeremy Stewart from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

    I agree with Mistic that Griffin’s team sucks , hence the record 2-6, but why doesn’t Mistic agree with us that Palmer’s team sucks too , would he have agreed Palmer’s team sucks too if he was black ?

    “black qb’s suck they only win with a running game”

    —-

    macbiggot, you have been exposed

    but please explain how that is racist in any way?

    First i compared jc and palmer as RAIDER QBS. I think jc was the far bettr qb for the raiders for simple reasons folow along

    jc won and plamer hasnt

    jc turned the ball over far less than palmer.

    palmer has thrown awy several games with picks owning 5 multi pick games out of 18. he has lost games on 9ick 6 and even has 4 games with at least 3 picks (one with 4).

    jc never threw 3 picks in a game as a raider

    luck and griffin do not play for the same team so i take into account the temas they play for.

    the colts are better then the redskins as the redskins have been decimated by injury. The injuries are to their best players on offense and defense orakpo, and garcon and davis for example.

    looking at the numbers and the games grifin has talent that luck does not physically and mentally he is just as good or better, which is why he has only thrown 3 picks to lucks 9 (3 times as many)

    nothing racist there, and i am a fan of both

    —-

    again i have told you this is a team game, a QB could have a pretty marginal stats , and his team could win 6-2 Luck and pretty good stats and his team could lose 2-6 , and you know it that Griffin doesn’t have the team around him and i agree with that too , but you refuse to do the same for Palmer , why?
    ======

    palmer doesnt have an excuse, he is losing this year with a team that we acknowledge as bad, but he also lost last year after taking over a team that was in first place and clearly headed for playoff contention.

    all things being equal he has sucked and his numbers also bear this out

    18 games 11 losses 28 turn overs

    that is putrid

    besides why is it so important for you that i become a palmer fan? You have issues

    ================

    based on what? RgIII makes audibles and has the green light to change any play or venture iunto any part of the playbook he chooses. this is why the redskins have a top 10 offense even without thier biggest weapons for almost the entire year.

    he led a 4th quarter come back in the final minutes without even having the comminaction device in his helmet.

    he only has 3 picks on the season because he is so good at the los reads, audibles and so on, and extermely good reading the coverages.

    He is right now a small step below manning brady and brees in this regard.

    Watch him play and see for yourself he reads the defns pre and post snap as well or better than luck

    Luck is an incredible athlete. Luck is a very heady guy. Luck is ridiculously competitive player. Did any of you see him knife in there yesterday to make a tackle? There is no doubt in my mind he could play LB. Or safety. That’s ridiculous. THAT’S why Luck went one overall and the Colts are laughing all the way to the line to punch their dance card.

    You don’t have to like anybody to make a correct assessments of their games and acknowledge that the guy didn’t get help from teammates, just because you don’t like some body you don’t need to go on put all the blame of entire last season on him , on the other hand you make excuses left and right for every guy you like

    Mistic–actually I do get to tell what white supremacy means. It means someone thinks whites are better than blacks. U know how ur a black supremacist. There is not evidence that the Martin killer was a white supremacist. In fact, white supremacists are rare. He was possibly guilty of profiling and being scared of a black man, due to so much crime being commuted by blacks. It’s a fact. There are many reasons for it but there is a lot of black crime. The guy may have overreacted and its a tragedy.

    But for u to bring it up here is obscene.

    U are what u are. A black supremacist. The proof is littered all over this blog. I feel sorry for u.

    And ur officially pointless to discuss anything with. U need a shrink.

    Here they come ………….it bothers them that you would compare them. They immediately look at the race of that player if he’s white they more accepting if he’s black they get insensed.

    Luck and RGIII are very close in terms of talent level and evry other measuring stick. RGIII has a much stronger arm and more accurate and faster that is why I would take him. But if you gave me Luck at QB I’d do cartwheels and be the happiest fan you could possibly think of. But the truth is given a chance at both I’d take RGIII……………period
