Will Raiders play it safe with Veldheer?

The torn left triceps sustained by Jared Veldheer, according to a Tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, is a “lesser form” of the same injury which sidelined Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and 49ers defensive lineman Justin Smith last season.

Coach Dennis Allen said putting Veldheer on the injured reserve list designated for return was “the direction we’re headed.” That would put Veldheer out a minimum of seven games, with the earliest possible return date Nov. 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Lewis missed the last 12 games of the regular-season with his injury. Smith missed two regular-season games then had a bye week before the playoffs. Both played in the postseason and were clearly affected by the injury.

If the Raiders think Veldheer could be back before seven games, they could always leave him on the 53-man roster. One thing to keep in mind is Veldheer is a 26-year-old left tackle with huge earnings potential down the road in a contact year should he come back strong. Lewis and Smith were players nearing the end of their careers playing at well under 100 percent for a chance at the Super Bowl.

    No, that’s your narcissistic personality disorder talking to you.

    The Definition, Mayo Clinic Staff

    Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

    Narcissistic personality disorder is one of several types of personality disorders. Personality disorders are conditions in which people have traits that cause them to feel and behave in socially distressing ways, limiting their ability to function in relationships and in other areas of their life, such as work or school.

    Narcissistic personality disorder treatment is centered around psychotherapy.

    How is that possible if they’re tailoring this offense around him?

    Saw the Lions throw a 2 yard pass on 3rd and 6 just now.

    I know people hate it in here, but you see way more passes thrown short of the sticks then ever before around the league.

    Defenses are too specialized.

    Watch for it on your next game, how many 3rd down passes are thrown short of the sticks.
