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.”

    WR’s?

    Raiders need to start Streater, Butler, and Criner on monday.

    Moore and ford off the bench.

    I must say though. Pryor minds me a lot of Kapernick.

    LT slid to his knees, both arms stretched out wide…. And all of a sudden got hit with the greatest loogey ever spit. Gannon-like accuracy to not hit his visor.

    (More like blind luck..haha)

    Nice Dolphins. Make Ryan drive for a TD instead of his patented FG.

  • Dakota

    Kaepernick sucks.

  • RaidO

    All WR 3 are 6’3 big targets and can catch better than Moore and Ford

    In all seriousness tho, SD fans have only one thing to say when debating whose team is better ….

    And it has nothing to do with football….

    Whenever I bring up how sorry they are, the only thing they can say is…

    “I live in SD”

    And a small piece of me knows I got owned a lil.

    Hottest, nicest girls are from SD. And the gaslamp is pretty cool when the military dorks aren’t starting fights every 6 seconds.

    —————-

    SD fans usually don’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to their Football smack talking. They had a good run here in 04-whatever it was about 5 years I think. They had that win streak against us then that got snapped.

    It’s just every year up until now they think they are going to the Super Bowl. This year has been different, they see the team they have and are starting to accept the writing on the wall.

    2. Rushing TD’s as well.

  • Raider Riff

    I don’t know how much closer it can get.

    The lineman were within arms reach of just punching me if they wanted at one point.

    Schit was being thrown at them and they weren’t too happy.

    Had they came up in the stands it would not have been a surprise. We were asking for it.

    Drunk idiots.

    Wow.. Niners are NOT all that..(I don’t root for them, kinda want Kap to be good because he’s from Nevada.. My brother, inexplicably, roots first for the Raiders, then the Niners.. I don’t discuss it to maintain family harmony.) We looked better vs the Colts.

    When/if we get healthy, we will be even better.

    We just need our WR core to step up. Weakest link easily.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    He can get you a FG inside of a minute. But then again, who can’t? Getting the TD requires a QB that can defy Xs and Os. He can’t. Third straight time he’s failed to deliver a TD on the final drive (SF, NO and Miami). Not my definition of “clutch”.

    I really didn’t believe how bad our WRs were until seeing Pryor in action this year. Seems like nobody is ever open. Even when he takes his time in the pocket, nothing develops more often than not.

    Only here….

    Matt Ryan and Aaron Rodgers are being picked apart and overly criticized.

    They do nearly everything at a elite level. Sorry, but those two are not overrated by any stretch.

    Mr. Rodgers, welcome to Cam Newton’s world. His running back fumbles on the Seattle’s 8-yd line at the end of the game and Cam gets blamed for a 5-pt loss in week 1. In week 2, he’s on the sidelines with a 6-pt lead on the road while his D allows a walk off TD to a rookie QB. Again, Cam is the bad guy. Comes with the territory I guess.

  • Raider Riff

    842.

    I knew it last year.

    I never watched so much film.

    The all-22 was so revealing.

    Palmer got fvcked. Thankfully for Pryor, he’s got legs. And his rah rah leadership is heads and shoulders more effective than CP3′s lead by example crap.

    But not even Gannon would be able to get these WRs to act right. These dogs just don’t hunt.

    The Jets just refuse to run the ball.

    @@@@@@@@@

    My point w Rodgers is that you can’t be considered the best QB in the league, as many people say he is, of you’re not clutch. And so far, his performance says he isn’t. He does fine when he’s got things going his way. Doesn’t overcome adversity more often than not. Not saying he’s not elite. Not saying I wouldn’t love to have him on this team. But he’s got a little bit of Palmer in him, and nobody w a little bit of Palmer could ever be considered best QB in the league. Hell, Romo might have more come from behind wins than Rodgers, with alot less wins in totality.

  • Raider Riff

    The Jets ask way too much out of their young QBs.
