McFadden and Seymour not practicing once again

Another day of practice, another day without running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson and defensive tackle Richard Seymour.
The trio missed all three practices this week, same as the previous two weeks. Therefore, it seems a foregone conclusion that coach Dennis Allen in an hour or so will declare all three as out for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
McFadden (ankle), Goodson (ankle) and Seymour (hamstring) missed the past two games. Allen said they are making progress, but he isn’t sure when any of them might heal enough to return to practice and play in a game.
Rookie defensive end Jack Crawford also is not practicing. He suffered a toe injury Wednesday and missed the past two practices.
On the bright side, strong safety Tyvon Branch (neck) and running back Taiwan Jones (ankle) made it through another practice without any apparent lingering effects from their injuries.
For now, it appears as if Marcel Reece, Jones and rookie Jeremy Stewart will handle the running back duties for a third straight game.
Desmond Bryant will take the bulk of Seymour’s snaps Sunday if Seymour isn’t able to play.

– The Raiders will wrap up practice in about 45 minutes or so. At that time, Allen will address the media and likely announce which players won’t be available for the Bengals game.
It’s also possible that Allen will shed some more light on what he intends to do with the vacancy he has on the 53-man roster. The spot freed up when the Raiders waived linebacker Aaron Curry.
Allen said the Raiders might fill the spot by signing one of the eight players on their practice squad. They went that route two weeks ago when they signed Stewart.

– Curry cleared waivers, as expected. He now is a free agent and available to sign with any team, including the Raiders.
It’s a stretch to envision the Raiders re-signing Curry, given they already had him under contract and got to see him play the past two games.
However, anything is possible, and the Raiders likely could get him back at very little cost. Then again, they’re already on the hook for paying him the remainder of what he is due this season as part of his previous contract.

    What are Seymour and Mcfadden good for besides being inactive for half the year?

  • Al_is_theraiders

    The sad thing is Carson can light up the Bengals to the tune of 400 yards and wait for it….

    so when we beat good teams it luck and when we beat lousy teams its our easy schedule? this is great logic.

    Keep living in the fantasy land , look at last years wins objectionably , to say that players are giving up on DA is ridiculous, can you say players gave up on Hue in last 5 weeks? if they were that good they could have beaten SD who had nothing to play for

    DKNIGHT I was referring to last year, we weren’t really that good , just happened to have an easy schedule

    We had the second easiest schedule this season with 9 games reamaining.

    Cincy is 5-5, they have come on lately but also got to play KC.

    Denver is 7-3, didn’t think Manning could do it , but he is doing it.

    Clev., SD, Car., KC all suck….

    All these writers will just look at the record they won’t check who the wins came against, how we fared against top teams, how many good teams did we beat and other stuff, how our D fared against teams like we have faced last 3 games all that stuff, but ofcourse the want to sell their newspapers so they will just right anything over-reactive fans want to read

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Exactly. 2 of the 3 wins came against worse teams than the Raiders and they got lucky versus the Jags.

    Beating Pitt was luck as well, because Pitt turned the ball over.

    Same could be said for last year 6 of 8 wins came against teams worse than Raiders and 3 or 4 of them were pure luck

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Whatever way you want to look at it.

    Fact is…Hue’s Raiders were still one game away from playoffs despite Hue losing his legendary owner/defacto GM, starting QB and star RB for mid season and despite being strapped with a crappy azz DC.

    Hue did an amazing job last year despite the circumstances and all the adversity he faced. He deserved a 2nd season with a REAL DC and a new GM.

    Davis and McK screwed up…period!

    If McK wants to truly rebuild, then he needs to stop dancing around the issue and just trade DMC to Jets or Cowboys for a 2nd and a 4th in this years draft and get a 2nd in next years draft and get his valuable “picks”.

    The way to get the picks he wants, is to ask for high picks and work you way down from there. McK should say to Jets and Dallas, give us a 1st this year and a 3rd for DMC and then they will refuse and counter and if McK can get a 2nd and 4th in this years draft and a 2nd in next years draft for DMC, then that would be a win IMO.


    wow 2nd and 4th this year and 2nd next year for a player who next plays more than 50% of the games? only guy i can imagine giving up that many picks for DMac is Jerry Jones

    ^^^^^^^^^^
    Jets and Cowboys are desperate for playmakers on offense. Jerry Jones is a very reactionary GM and likes playing poker and making a splash.

    He would give up a 2nd and 4th for DMC. He loves DMC with the Arkansas ties and DMC is still dynamic gamebreaker/player in this league when healthy.

    Also last yr. we were dominating Detroit before the defense folded (a playoff team) and Buffalo the D gave up FIVE straight 2nd half td’s to blow that one.

    If our D could’ve held SD at their 1/2 yd. line we probably win that one as well.

    A person could make the argument that yes…last yr. WAS a mirage…we should have at least been 10-6 if not better.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Crappy D couldn’t close and finish the Broncos at home last year and let Tebow and McGahee beat them in the 2nd half last year.

    Just terrible.

    Last weekend, the State of New Mexico had some gun club sponsor a kill-as-many-coyotes as you can find contest, and the last two nights now, I just hear them howling all night long.

    I can’t believe the two things aren’t correalated. Where’s Rockstar to chime in?

    Coyotes, wolfs, etc communicate through their howls. It’s from “where are you” to “someone’s taking a shot at my ass”.

  • mcfadden20.

    I only want to compare last year with the teams we beat last year and teams we lost against last year to teams we have beaten this year and teams we have lost again , and have we gotten worse by coaching or talent level, i would say Offensive we regressed due to coaching , defensively we regressed cuz Kelly and Seymour are year older and we can’t cut them due to huge contracts, WImbley is gone (due to salary cap , but was our best pass rusher) , we only could add WHeeler( coming off one of the worse INdy D last year )) Bartell coming from 1 year off due to injury, so all in all , we have beaten 2 out of the 3 bad teams we faced this year, so pretty much on par with how we fared against weak teams last year, which was like 6 outta 10 or 11, have been demolished by top teams just like how we got crushed against NE and GB last year

    DMAC is damaged goods.
    Can’t imagine any GM making a deal for DMAC.
    Not worth the risk.

  • DKnight007

    It’ll be interesting to see what McK does after the season is over (which it already is)

    If he truly values his draft picks, then he is going to have to seriously look to trade DMC to get some picks and rebuild.

    McK needs DMC to come back and score some TD’s to increase his trade value before the season ends.
