Veldheer’s dad says surgery went well

Jim Veldheer, the father of Raiders tackle Jared Veldheer, tweeted Friday “Jared is in recovery. All went well. Praise the Lord.’’

Veldheer underwent surgery to repair a torn left triceps and likely be placed on the designated for return injured reserve list, meaning the earliest he could return would be in the eighth game of the season on Nov. 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Raiders won’t make that move until cutting the roster to the final 53, with Veldheer included in that number. He would then be placed on injured reserve, taking him off the roster, and the Raiders can add another player.

    Why would no coach want to come here last year but suddenly do this year?
    There are only so many NFL jobs, not often are they turned down.
    =============================
    They weren’t available last year.They were denied the opportunity to even interview.They were under contract to other teams.Teams fill their staffs right after the season ends,not in Feb.You know these things.

    Mainly because Al Davis was a meddler and no Coach worth his salt wanted to put up with that. Even Al Saunders turned down the HC job to go to Wash. Al Davis didn’t value HCs and didn’t pay them very well.

    Houston as a base lde, fine, he’ll stop the run and apply a little pressure

    but I also agree he should’ve gained a little weight not lost it, and become our every down 3tech

    hunter could start lde, then we’d only need one of our big offseason dt acquisitons (walker, sims) to be healthy and start alongside houston

  • SaintKaufman

    I fully expect N.O. to bring all out pressure tonight. Flynn better be ready with his hot reads and the OLine absolutely needs to get some push up the middle. Hopefully some early success in the run game will back them off and let Flynn go to work on their secondary. Looking at you Moore!

    Glenny my boy….if pryor does well and scores TDs tonight…how upset will you be?

    I remember you hated JLH and was upset he scored a TD in a preseason game vs Sea back in 2010…any repeat?
    ===================================================

    Naaa, I’m the biggest Pryor fan in here. Even Pryor’s mom isn’t as big a fan of 6 as I am. But to my credit, Chokie Lee is no longer in the league, and after saying bench McFadden and put in Fargas, 6 years later all McFadden has done is eat up $30+mm, nothing else. Imagine what kind of talent $30mm could have brought us.

    In the preseason, Q’s have to come in and complete 70+% of their passes for some yardage. If they are playing against scrubs, they should be completing 80+%. Heck Vick was 9 for his first 9 last night before he choked. Pryor completing 60% of his passes against scrubs and then throwing a very bad INT ain’t good. And if you noticed, as his stint out there went on last time, his mechanics went from looking like he was being personally coached by Scott Linehan, to looking like he was personally being coached by Lindsay Lohan. That ain’t good either.
