McFadden, Seymour, Branch not practicing once again

If the Raiders are going to beat the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, it appears as if they’re going to have to do so without a handful of key players.
Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson, defensive tackle Richard Seymour, strong safety Tyvon Branch and wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey are not practicing today, which makes them very questionable for the Saints game.
Of that quintet, Heyward-Bey stands the best chance of playing. He tweaked his right hamstring early in practice Wednesday, but he is at least on the field and walking around. That’s more than can be said for the four others that aren’t practicing.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen won’t make any definitive decisions on whether any of the aforementioned five will play or not until after practice Friday, at the earliest.
For now, it’s a long-shot to expect McFadden, Goodson, Branch or Seymour to play. McFadden, Goodson and Seymour last played Nov. 4. They haven’t practiced of played in a game since that day. Branch suffered his injury against the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday, and he has missed both practices this week.

– The Raiders signed safety Cory Nelms to their practice squad. He spent time with the 49ers each of the past two seasons. Nelms fills the vacancy created by the signing of running back Jeremy Stewart to the 53-man roster last Saturday.

– No official word yet on whether Sunday’s game has sold enough tickets for it to be televised locally. The Raiders sold out all eight of their regular-season games last season and their first four this season.

– Khalif Barnes is taking reps with the first-team offense at right offensive tackle. If all goes according to plan, he will start against the Saints after missing the past seven games with a groin injury that required surgery.

    Raiderman99,

    I am educated in the subject I have decided to write about. And if you read correctly before jumping into a conclusion, I wrote both sides of the fence; in regards to the people who have no say but are dying over politics.

    Hamas doesn’t have the weapon capabilities that an American backed Is rael does. Is rael is “strategically” bombing Gaza in heavily populated areas. I’m sure you aren’t aware that over 1,500 people have died in Gaza this past week?

    Plenty of friends I have that are from Is rael don’t agree with what’s going on over there. At the end of the day, I don’t agree neither sides should be punished or killed over politics. Although one country is suffering much more than the other when it comes to the cost of innocent lives.

    STOP BOMBING IS RAEL!

    Are you happy now?
    =======================================
    No, I’m not happy…but it’s a start.

    Wasn’t aware that 1500 died this week. That’s news to me. Haven’t spent a moment of time keeping up on developments there, but severely doubt that’s accurate.

    Additionally, I reject the notion that bcz Hamas doesn’t have the arsenal that Israel does, that Israel shouldn’t use the weapons it has available or that Israel should limit herself to wageing a proprtionate retaliatory war.

    Hamas’s stated objective is to destroy Israel. They are at war with Israel. Since the people of Gaza voted them into power, they pay the price. That’s the leadership they’ve chosen and the path they’ve decided upon.

    Don’t honestly know what the fools in Gaza think is going to happen or what objectives they actually think they can achieve.

    If they think they can win a war with Israel, they are sadly mistaken.

    Mystified why the fools in Israel tolerate Hamas’s lunacy even for a nanosecond.

    Bet you didn’t know that Israel provides all the electricity, phone service, fuel, and virtually all of the food and medicines that Gaza has.

    Talk about idiots. Israel has got to be the dumbest nation on the planet.

    Palestinians don’t have the same weapons (bombs), and Israel can be too aggressive ( Bombing an entire village for revenge).
    ===========================================
    That’s your view O.

    My view is that Israel isn’t aggressive enough.

    You put a crazy Jew like me in charge and there would be little or no consideration to limiting ‘collateral’ damage.

    I don’t care if it’s throwing rocks, firing mortars, launching rockets or missiles, or suicide bombers.

    Every act of violence would be responded to without regard to keeping it proportional or any concern about what ‘the world’ thinks.

    No other country would even consider continually absorbing attacks on it’s people and it’s sovereign territory, nor would any country be expected to.

    That expectation is seemingly reserved for Israel only.

    I’d put a swift end to that and am amazed that Israel even plays that game for a moment.

    You do realize that Israel didn’t exist before the late 40s?

    RE: Fargas.

    *Capable*

    IN Knapp’s ZBS, Fargas had 1000 yards in just over a half a season. Sure, he slammed into brick walls constantly, but so did (and does) DMC, yet Fargas managed to outproduce DMC on a consistent basis.

    Was Fargas a beter player? Of course not.

    And Goodson’s not a better player than DMC. Is he a better fit for the cr@p offense we run? I think so.
