McFadden, Seymour not practicing once again

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, November 21st, 2012 at 11:52 am in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he is hopeful of getting back some of his injured players this week. For now, he has to settle for seeing strong safety Tyvon Branch back on the field after missing most of practice last week, as well as the game against the New Orleans Saints.
Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson and defensive tackle Richard Seymour are not practicing today. All three missed the past two games with injuries.
Taiwan Jones, Jeremy Stewart and Marcel Reece are taking reps at running back in the absence of Oakland’s top two backs.
Allen said Monday that Goodson still was in a walking boot. McFadden ran around on the field last week, but he still hasn’t been cleared to return to practice. Both are recovering from high-ankle sprains.
Desmond Bryant is taking Seymour’s reps in practice once again.
On a positive note, linebacker Philip Wheeler and Jones are practicing today despite suffering injuries against the Saints.

– Defensive line coach Terrell Williams rejoined the team Monday, 10 days or so after his 4-year-old son passed away.
Williams is on the field, back at work, today. Let’s hope he finds a measure of comfort in being back around people that care for him and his family so much and that working helps him in the healing process.

– The Raiders still have not filled the vacancy on their 53-man roster created by the waiving of outside linebacker Aaron Curry on Tuesday.

– The Raiders are practicing on artificial turf today as a result of the recent rains. This is one of the few times in recent memory in which the Raiders used that field.

    This organization remains a mess. DA and Reggie will not fix it they only continue the dysfunction. This organization has always been about getting coaches for cheap. DA and this crew are no different than Kiffen, Cable or Jackson. Go compare experience of DA to ANY coach in the NFL. What a joke – pissing me off. Mark is embarrassed?! Give the fans a refund!!!

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

    DA: One year as a coordinator
    Chuck Pagano: One year as a coordinator
    Jim Harbaugh: Never even a pro coordinator

    You get the idea…

    Dennis Allen is to coaching ,what Carson Palmer is to quarter backing … PATHETIC and Embarrassing

    So when Carson gets embarrassed in front of his former team on sunday , does Pryor finally get soem snaps? I mean the game will be over by half time since the bungles D will score 14 points of INTS and 7 more off a Palmer fumble in the endzone… Also Dennis Allen is a great defensive GURU ain’t he !
    =============

    i think the raider dropped the ball and should have broken in tp6 the way harbaugh found ways to use kappy.

    I agree that the bungle bowl is the biggest game of carsons life and when/ if he flops it will be time to sit him down in favor tp6.

    If only to evaluate t pryor and get a jump on the draft process, and perhaps get some interest in pryor if he isnt in the long term plans

    This is also a means to sell tix post bungle bowl 2012

    Ssorry fellas. What happened this afternoon was bronco trolls have been posting for days for Raider Nation to turn on McKenzie/Allen and staff. When I told them to eff off the trolls went nuts. Just the way it is.

    DA smiling at Fox after we got spanked by Denver…. Jeezus! Can’t comment after Harbaugh ran it up… I don’t blame Harbaugh one bit. Harbaugh had that planned all week. Guess our coaches never noticed…. Good job gang!!!

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

    It really isn’t a bad idea. One of two things would happen: if Pryor plays well, you are going to have a QB controversy going forward and that would not be good. If Pryor plays poorly, which is more likely to happen, it would shut the fans taco holes up.

    GOOD! Maybe this franchise NEEDS to sink and the rats NEED to jump for there to be real substantive change.

    I guarantee Pryor won’t b active. It’s Lienart after Palmer and that’s all you need to know about how abysmal this crew is. Signing Lienart!!! God! That dude was/is a complete waste of a signing. Good Job!

    Good point. I was thinking more about the fans. The fans had the belief that we were really close to being a solid competitive franchise. I knew better, but you bring up a good point. The most important thing going on right now for this franchise is to play well, very well at the end of this season and try to build so mo going into next year.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Yes he can, but he needs better pass rush, better coaching and scheme, and more talent around him. He should stay as our FS/ CB, and we should use him in a way that maximizes his production and skills.

  • 49ER RAIDER KILLA

    If Carson Palmer is still on the roster next year that means that Reggie Mac is the dumbest GM in the history of the league. I mean the Raiders last year just made the worst TRADE in sports history and now you want to continue that DEBACLE ? Reg Mac is just as incompetent as Dennis the visor Allen !

    In other words, it’s too hot, and he should stay out of the kitchen.

    By your estimate, Dakota, how many exchanges, over the years, have you gotten in, where you fought over nothing?

    I’m just gonna try and convince myself that this teams gonna be in flux for the near future… Not anything I can do besides except it….so many holes that I can’t see it getting better for a couple years….I’d bet Kelly’s gone… Seymour’s gone and Trading McFadden might not be a bad idea ….. The team needs a lot…… Let them rebuild in the image they see…. Then see what happens…… Allen and McKenzie are gonna be here at Least a couple …hopefully Reggie will trade down for more picks ….gonna be tough watching these games… But it’s been tough anyway …

    Actually, the best position for Michael Huff to help the Raiders with would be on another team, preferably a division rival….right next to McClain, Branch and Kelly. Then we could be the ones rolling up big numbers on that D.

    Problem is who replaces CP?
    Can anyone say our qb of the future is on the roster?
    No.
    Obviously what the coaches see in practice doesn’t give them warm and fuzzies about Leinart or TP.
    CP isn’t going anywhere until his replacement is on the roster.

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

    That’s the point, the team DOES need a lot. Starting on the Oline with a center and two guards, another bona fide TE would not hurt, a RB would not hurt, and another SOLID WR would not hurt. That’s a lot right there.

    Then the entire Dline needs to be rebuilt, MLB is a necessity, and two corners and a safety would probably be in the cards as well. That is a lot of players right there. You cannot do that in one draft.

    Doubt it.

    Palmer starts until/unless injured. Maybe if injured, and then Lienart stinks it up, you will then see TP (a la Russell at the end of 07).

    No, Reggie will put his stamp on the organization by drafting Geno Smith, Barkley, or EJ Manual, IMO.
