Gurode will start at left guard

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Saturday that Andre Gurode would start at left guard in place of Lucas Nix, who has been limited all week with an ankle injury.

Nix may or may not be available in a backup role and was listed as questionable. If Nix can’t play, the next man up is Antoine McClain, inactive for the first two games, as the fill-in for Gurode or left guard Mike Brisiel.

Strong safety Tyvon Branch (ankle), tackle Menelik Watson (knee) and tight end David Ausberry (shoulder) are all out and will not make the trip to Denver Sunday.

The Raiders cut short their practice because of heavy rain.

“I hate for something like that to happen,” Jones said following practice Saturday. “Anybody who knows me knows how much I care about animals. I feel really bad about the situation. It didn’t happen at my residence, but I still can’t help but feel for the young lady.”

    Oak is 12th in 3rd down conversion percentage at 40.74%
    Somewhat of an improvement over last years 35%

    Meanwhile Arizona is 27th at 32%.

    Go figure.

    EJ Manuel sucks. He might end up being good, but he sucks. I’m even more pissed about that wide open BS pass to Stevie Johnson now that got on all the top 10s last week, instead of Woodsons superman act.

    Ohio girls are the most underrated best kept secret in America.

    Closest thing to a European girl we got are the fun sluts from Ohio.

    Wonder if the Jags would pay a pretty penny for Flynn. I believe he could be a good fit for them, being desperate and all, and maybe Reggie could work some magic and come out smelling like a rose. Kinda like how the Seattle GM did when he off loaded Flynn. Jags are desperate Reggie. Opportunity knocks.

  • ElMuñequitoDeCalsetin

    Why did Philbin pass up Flynn after coaching him in Green Bay; he knew a backup was not worth putting your money on to run the franchise.

    That’s true. A lot of the nice girls I met here were not natives.
    Carmen Electra is from Ohio. They move to CA, Chicago, NY, or Florida.

    @@@@@@@@@

    Of course he has brought his team back. But more often than not. And more often than most elite QBs, he doesn’t. He doesn’t choke it like Palmer necessarily, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. If he’s put in a position to win, he usually does. If he’s out in a position to lose, he usually does that too.

    I’m not by myself w that take. JFB started it. And he brought it up because there’s rumblings around the media about the same thing, specifically from BSPN I believe. And if BSPN Is bad mouthing one of their golden boys for any reason, I tend to believe it. And hai record shows it.

    Yea. It never ends. But of we even have a decent showing tomorrow, and best Washington at home next week, we should move up into the low 20s. Not very far fetched as far as I’m concerned.
