McFadden practicing again, McClain still on roster

Running back Darren McFadden is practicing today for the second straight day as he steams toward a return from a high-ankle sprain that sidelined him for three games.
McFadden is running around, making cuts, catching passes and looking like the McFadden we saw the first eight games of the season.
Coach Dennis Allen said he is hopeful of McFadden being in good enough condition to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
At this point, there’s no indication that McFadden won’t be healed enough to resume the starting job.
Backup Mike Goodson also is at practice for a second straight day. Like McFadden, he is recovering from a high-ankle sprain.
McFadden is expected to speak with the media today and provide an update on how he feels.

– Middle linebacker Rolando McClain is not at practice today, but he is still on the 53-man roster.
For now, anyway. The Raiders have until 1 p.m. today to waive McClain for it to count in the view of the league office.
It’s also possible that the Raiders could suspend McClain for up to four games for conduct detrimental to the team. That would preclude the Raiders from having to pay McClain 1/17 of his $970,000 base salary for each game he is suspended.
We will know more once Allen speaks with the media around 1 p.m.

– Defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring) and defensive end Jack Crawford (toe) are the only others players not at practice.
Seymour has missed the past three games. Crawford was out for last Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

– No word yet from the Raiders on whether they sold at least 85 percent of the tickets for Sunday’s game. That is the minimum required for the game to be televised locally.
All eight of Oakland’s regular-season home games in 2011 and the first five this season were televised locally.
If the Raiders reach that threshhold for the Browns game, then it’s safe to assume they will do so for the Broncos game Dec. 6 and the Chiefs game Dec. 16.

    Davis Shaw might like the challenge of the raiders, nowehre to go but up…

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

    Not if he thinks he’ll get canned after one year, which is what he WILL justifiably think if DA hits the bricks.

    No, we’re in solid with DA for at least one more season, and maybe a lot more.

    No, but I think I had an ex-GF put some strange things in my belongings once we broke up and they are burnt now. I think she was into that stuff. For my part I don’t believe. I choose not to.

    Wasn’t Jessie Hester a first rd pick?

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

    Drafted in 85, again before my time, was a toddler, but fans my age are the ones who truly are snakebitten, unlike the old timers who got to enjoy those 3 sb’s. I got the pleasure of watching 23 years of bad football, minus those 3 Gruden years while seeing 1st round bust after 1st round bust. It’s like a never ending viscious cycle.

    Oline & Pass Rush.

    Lets get those, please.

  • inonewordraider

    Singletary was the coach when all that talent was drafted… He just didnt get to reap the benefits of them.

    Harbaugh’s staff is good, but they fell into a lot of talent.

    Yeah, that was a terrible trade on the Charger’s part. Then Al turned right around and made a terrible trade of his own for Schroeder.

    And Nap’s solution to the crime in the “Southland” is basically to brainwash kids to become police officers.

    I like it!!

  • http://www.GodIsImaginary.com RaiderDuck

    We traded John Clay and a pick to SD for Lachey. A few weeks later, we traded Lachey and a pick to Washington for Schroeder, who was no better than Steve Beuerlein, who was already on our roster but had foolishly asked Al for more money. Another example of Al hurting this team for sheer ego.

    Beurlein was the better QB. But he pissed Al off.

    Why not engage in direct conversation with pyor?
    ============================================

    Because the head coach does not engage 3rd stringers. ===========
    ===============

    you have missed the point and that is untrue.

    If a player has been inactive all season and the coach intends to place him on the active roster it usually involves a conversation.

    The players on the active roster DO need the game plan as there is a chance they will play. Im not saying allen has to have one on one film study with him. Yet the norm is the coach tells the player that he is going to activate what his role will be and what to prepare for.

    That is just basic and is common place in every nfl city

    looks like allen has communication issues with players
    ==============================================

    Honestly dude, that’s ridiculous. Why wouldn’t Knapp and DeFillipo tell him he is going to be active and begin going over the packages for him?

    =========

    who said “go over packages”?

    He simply needs to give the kid basic respect and tell him if he is activating him.

    This is how you build relationships this is what leaders do.

    They communicate directly.

    In terms of packages and all, that would fall on coordinators and qb coach.

    No coach is too big to communicate. Coaches that fail to grasp this alienate players.

    we can disagree if you like, in my view it speaks to an underlying issue that has caused the team to have major problems in the locker room.

    The evidence is the win loss record and the performance and lack of discipline.

    allen looks like a coach with no backing form the players, and smells like bill callahan
