CB Lee not with the Raiders in Baltimore


Cornerback Pat Lee did not accompany the Raiders on their flight to Baltimore on Friday.
A team official confirmed that Lee was not on the flight. However, no transaction was performed Friday.
It’s logical to assume that the Raiders told Lee that his roster spot will be needed to free up room for cornerback Ron Bartell in his return from the injured-reserve list.
The Raiders can’t activate Bartell until Saturday, per league rules. So, we should know more later Saturday.
Lee entered the starting lineup in the second game in place of Bartell. However, coach Dennis Allen went with regular free safety Michael Huff at cornerback the next game, with Matt Giordano moving into the free safety spot and Lee into a backup role.
Bartell and Huff are expected to start at cornerback against the Ravens. If Lee isn’t on the team at that time, look for Philip Adams and Joselio Hanson to get the bulk of the reps whenever the Raiders are in their nickel and dime packages on obvious passing downs.

    Don’t really follow College ball too much. Saw some snippet earlier if some old coach pushing and knocking the hat off if an Asst. Coach. Who the heck was that?

    I don’t care about chain of command, that Asst. should have laid that old man out. Get a job somewhere else.

    I Forgot that real fans sometimes show up here…this morning was pleasant until the clowns barraged the place…

    btw right on Twinkle…Amen to what u have below..

    we are 0-8 without CP3. even a blind, deaf, mute, raider fan could ‘sense’ that fact much….

    Imagine if it were Gannon under center right now…
    well he he wouldn’t be there for long …Point being
    if there is a Raider fan that ain’t on the CP3 bandwagon
    now then they can’t be a Raider fan to my way of thinking

    Here’s my take on 2morrow’s game.We have the perfect mixture in terms of HB’s at our disposal it just comes down to playcalling. In Reece you have a very versatile bigback, NO he’s not your hammer per se but he is tough to get down and can take the pounding. He has great hands and is OK blocker basically you have what we gave away in Bush. Then you have the quintessential scatback in TJ you can’t ask for a better mix. It just comes down to playcalling how do you attack their defense with these two very versatile and talented backs.

    I would use them very similar to the way Flores used Marcus and Bo with a meathead to help in shortyardage. Great coaches would get mismatches all over the field with these two. Because with both in the backfield you cannot focus on one and both are great vision runners. It is not Bush and DMC but it’s close and if they can’t get these guys to be productive even highly productive it tells you all you need to know.

    At some point David Ausberry needs to be integrated into this offense I don’t care HOW they do it just do it. His run after catch ability is sorely needed. I’m not saying start him I’m saying play him. The same is true with the possesion rec’s in the redzone Criner showed you what he is now USE HIM smartly.

    You have a QB capable of doing some special things if you give him the environment to do it in. You know he does have that penchant for the pick so as a playcaller you HELP HIM.

    On defense I said early this year when the defense looked stable and improving taht if they are fo-real this offense had the ability to catch up and make this a very good team. Well I’ll give them a pass on last week. But they have got to get back to business and TACKLE…………period

    If they do the Raiders can win this game if they don’t they have no chance……….period

    Priesttj12….as much as I respect your opinion I just do not envision a very large WR with the softest hands I
    have ever seen have the instinct at the LOS to avoid the
    catastrophe that awaits those don’t have it.His blocking
    at the LOS is nowhere near the level it is down field on
    DB’s and LB’s……course we have our best wideout at
    FB for some reason.Tampa’s Dline was very very big fast
    and effective and our Oline did great holding em for as long as they did.We did have 10 at the line most of the second half and our WR’s were running routes while our QB was trying his best to keep a play alive instead of turning back to help.
    Somehow I think Tom had a little more to work with in
    Bo,Marcus,Steve Smith,Eric Dickerson et al.
