McFadden, Wiz doubtful; O-line hurting

The fact that Darren McFadden has been here before doesn’t make it any easier.

The Raiders officially listed McFadden as doubtful Friday with a hamstring strain, meaning it’s likely he will miss the 24th game of his career due to injury.

Only on rare occasions does a player listed as doubtful on Friday end up playing on Sunday, which also means center Stefen Wisniewski, who has the same designation, could end up a spectator when the Raiders host the San Diego Chargers Sunday night.

“I can’t even describe it or put it into words,’’ McFadden said when asked about his level of frustration with being injured again. “I just try to keep my head up, keep pushing forward an remain positive.’’

McFadden acknowledged the possibility of sitting out back-to-back games against San Diego and Kansas City preceding the bye week would “help me out a whole lot’’ but stressed he was taking it “day to day.’’ He has yet to be able to sprint.

“Hamstrings are one of those things you want to be careful with,’’ McFadden said. “I’d rather miss one or two games than to come back and pop it and miss four or five.’’

Allen said Wisniewski’s progress hasn’t been what the Raiders hoped but didn’t rule him out of recovering before Sunday night.

If Wisniewski can’t play, left guard Andre Gurode would start at center. Complicating matters is that guard Lucas Nix (ankle) and starting right tackle Tony Pashos (groin) are both listed as questionable. So is tackle Menelik Watson, just coming off arthroscopic knee surgery.

In an extreme circumstance, players such as guard Antoine McClain, guard Lamar Mady and practice squad tackle James Cornell could be forced into action.

It’s been hard,’’ Gurode said. “You’ve just got to make sure everybody is communicating on the same page and you go out and play an do the best you can.’’

    Dumb call……period

    They were stuffing that play all game and you run the QB in there??

    Common sense folks!!

  • Papertiger

    Yeah, there was one of those places on Route 66 right by where I went to college. Got a lot of free meals there on Parents’ Weekend when my friends’ folks would stop by.

    I even think I went to a dinner party there my Junior Year, but it’s all fuzzy. Cursed drugs.

  • Prometheus

    all about the situation.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Dudes, me and the ladies are watching World War Z and it totally bites!
    There isn’t a single chick in the movie with nice cans and Pitt’s wife is an albino ginger dork
    Thought we’d at least get to see some hot hizzy get mauled by a bunch of zombies while her booblies are sticking out and maybe a flash of some coochie pie
    Gonna have to put on Django Unchained after so I can properly stroke the Lawg to some Kerry Washington. Homegirl is hella legit, shout out to Nnamdi

    When our oline jells we’ll be balling..this season, could start sunday.,, kooklaid for everybody!!!!

  • 0ak R8rs

    Yea. I live w my kids. It’s called being a responsible parent. Something I’m sure you wouldn’t know anything about. Go visit them for graduations an doctor visits? Nice. Like I said, you’re pointless, even to your own children, by your own admission.

  • r8rwill

    We’re doing it the Raiders way,,take no prisoners, and laugh when were done…

  • Papertiger

    I saw the trailer for WWZ and thought Brad Pitt’s wife was a zombie, but it turns out that’s just how she looks normally. Yikes!

  • 0ak R8rs

    Yea. Well I don’t remember exactly to be honest. But I don’t recall thinking we were out of the game at the time. Can’t argue. Don’t recall.

  • Papertiger

    …laugh when they’ve conquered and won

  • HayesDaze37

    It’s a great day to be a Raiders fan. Isn’t it?!
    BHP is spot-on about keeping TP2 in the pocket. We DON’T want a West Coast version of Cam Newton here. 35-yard runs are great for the QB…on occasion. Planning to run your QB more than absolutely necessary is taking STUPID RISKS with your Team’s season.
    If TP2 makes it in this here League, it will be because he can throw ACCURATELY and WISELY from the pocket…not because he can run as well as Colin Kaepernick (who’s got plenty left to learn about QB himself…no matter what “Jaws” hypes).

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Thank you.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Yeah, what’s up with the wack casting?
    Obviously everyone watches Zombie flicks to beat off to and they put in that hizzy?
    Carmen Electra or that short fat Kardashian slob would’ve been perfect
    You can slo mo those running scenes where their booblies are jiggling for a good 30 seconds of spank action

    Any word on Andre Holmes? I heard he looked in tip-top shape. If we get him and Watson back on the field…dominance.

  • Papertiger

    Last thing, Beech. Check out the trailer for American Hustle, starring Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence. Seems like what your life would be if you turned to crime…

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Sorry Oak Dork, but get a life
    Why spend a whole day at a graduation when you can catch the best moments on FB?
    Some of my kids like to Skype, but I somehow always pass out in the middle from being too wasted
    Tell your wife to get a facebook page started, then you can spend more time at the club repairing your nerd rep
    You’re welcome in advance

  • 0ak R8rs

    Yea. Missed the FB thing since I only scan your shlt and only when you’re talking directly to me. The rest I just skip. Your a pitiful excuse for a father. If you even have kids. Or if you’re even a man. Or if you’ve ever been laid. I consider all of those unlikely. You’re probably a 13 year old girl.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    C’mon Oak. He’ll probably have kids and be okay when his balls drop.
    Uh oh, here comes the dreaded beeeeech blast.

  • 0ak R8rs

    My guess is he’s actually a 13 year old girl.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Dude, I’m trying to help.

    Obviously you’re one of the biggest goobers on the blog for a reason.

    Hanging around 4 kids all day has made you totally uncool. When’s the last time you popped some Moet Chandon in the club?

    Trust the Dawg, kids are hot lady repellent. ONLY carry a few cute pics around in your wallet to show a hizzy for the “awwww” factor.

    Always seals a sensual BJ or hand jiggity for the Dawg, wink wink

  • Raiderkoolaid

    I agree. Pryor should run on his own when the play brakes down or when he sees the field open in front of him, but there should be very few called running plays for him. So few that when he does do it there is an element of surprise.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Yo, the Dawg will in fact check that shizz out, Siskel & Ebert style

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Check back later if the Santa Rosa fairgrounds wfi is up.
    I’m outta here. Shecky, get the jet.

  • HayesDaze37

    And DMC???
    DMC needs to just go away. Another Team might be able to afford the wasted money, time, and potential he’s brought to us for the past half-decade…but, the Raiders shouldn’t even negotiate an extension with him.
    DMC gets full-time pay for part-time work. The Raiders need full-time workers, no matter their pay. Sorry, Darren, but it’s time to end this unfortunate marriage.

  • spiff

    yeah, we could use a dynamic back, who doesn’t break his toe nails every 3rd or 4th game.

  • spiff

    we’ll find a back in the 3rd rd. next year who can put it down. who has durability. as far as dmac , least he ain’t out for the year. hopefully before the bye………… big disappointment. too bad. time to move on.

  • turf toe

    Because Olsen is trying to earn my hatred as well. That’s why he made that idiotic call.

  • turf toe

    Haw haw. Beech, you may be an azz but you make me laugh sometimes.

  • turf toe

    If you were responsible, you wouldn’t be ignoring them and posting on this psychotic website. By the way, they will all hate you when they grow up.

  • turf toe

    You are just awful. But this is really funny.

  • turf toe

    And my guess is that you are quite some dork, Oak4and8

  • turf toe

    Pitt was right to dump Aniston. Boring woman who still wears bridesmaid dresses at fifty. She looks like Dustin Hoffman.

    I hate her, along with Dennis Allen.

  • GimmieAMilk

    Same ole McFadden! Trade hin NOW!

  • turf toe

    Anyone else see that dustup on video between the Chargers and Cowboy fans? Busted beer bottles on heads, bloody wounds, etc. Could have been worse if somebody had a gun.

    Lots of that “Whatssup” posturing that I despise, too.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Aniston gets 2 Lawgs Down from the Dawg

    I bet she makes fools sniff her va-jay-jay
    like its Bordeaux before they can even take a sample lick

    Guaranteed, if you get within 5 feet of her phart box with a ding dong she starts crying

    The Dawg would rather get it on with the Kardashian mom

    At least you can do giant mayonnaise explosion all over those old fake booblies and not have to worry about cleaning it up

  • turf toe

    You’ve got it wrong. The Raider way is let the prisoner disarm you, lock you in your own cuffs, and drive off with your squad car.

  • turf toe

    I have issues with McFadden. After watching his disappointing performance this year, I went back and compared his output with other starting running backs and discovered that I hate him.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Jack Cornell was just signed to the 53-man roster. Who’s he replacing?

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Nvm. We just waived Antoine McClain.

  • turf toe

    Thanks for reminding me of Marcus Allen, my favorite Raider of all time. He had incredible touch on his passes and could play almost any position. Then Davis, his mind full of wormwood, tried to ruin him.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Not moving Holmes up for this game, and have to make a decision on Monday.
    If Butler plays well………maybe they just let him walk?

  • turf toe

    Thanks for the nice thoughts, 10. I’ll try to fight back the bile.

  • eastoaklandraider

    I thought the A’s played tommorow? So why such a late delay on the game tomorrow?

  • http://raiders.com/ Crawfish Joe

    Take about 18 to 24 hours to convert the field. Something like that.

  • the fiendish dr robert

    breaking news: cornell up from PS, mcclain cut.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Or maybe they’re waiting to see if anyone gets hurt before cutting Criner on Monday.

  • the fiendish dr robert

    we have 10 OL. and 5 DE’s. and they’ve been curiously working out WR/KR. plus flynn ould be on the outs.

  • the fiendish dr robert

    cut ford. he sucks. criner could still come on.

    A’s off to Detroit after the game today.
