McFadden returns to practice, Wisniewski still absent

Running back Darren McFadden is back on the practice field today, going through the same paces as the other running backs. That bodes well for his playing against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The same can’t be said of center Stefen Wisniewski, who still hasn’t been cleared to practice. He missed the Raiders game against the Chargers on Sunday night. His status for the Chiefs game is questionable at this point.
Andre Gurode is working at center with the first-team offense in Wisniewski’s absence. Also, Tony Pashos is back at practice and working with the first-team today. He sat out the Raiders-Chargers game, too.
McFadden suffered a hamstring injury in Oakland’s loss to the Washington Redskins. He departed after only five carries. Rashad Jennings replaced McFadden that game and amassed 116 yards rushing and receiving. Jennings also filled in for McFadden against the Chargers.
Jennings, too, is nursing a hamstring injury. He carried the ball 10 times in the first half against the Chargers but none in the second half, as coaches removed him from the game as a precautionary measure.
Jennings is at practice today and making good on his assertion Monday that his hamstring injury isn’t a serious one and that he won’t miss any time.
In other news, linebacker Miles Burris was spotted working out on an adjacent field to his teammates. At one point, Burris sprinted the better part of 50 yards without any apparent restriction from the knee he had operated on soon after last season ended.
Burris is on the physically unable to perform list. He is eligible to begin practicing after this week’s game. He can play in a game as soon as the seventh game or as late as the 15th, depending upon how the Raiders choose to proceed.
Here’s the wording on the new guidelines for players on the PUP as set forth by the NFL:
“Commencing on the day after the conclusion of the sixth regular season weekend (October 15) and continuing through the day after the conclusion of the 11th regular season weekend (November 19), clubs are permitted to begin practicing players on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform for a period not to exceed 21 calendar days. Pads and helmets are permitted during the 21-day period. At any time during the 21-day practice period, or prior to 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the day after the conclusion of the 21-day period, clubs are permitted to restore such players on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform to their Active/Inactive List.”

    Olawale isn’t a bad FB either.

  • SnBG

    Dude, you seriously need to change you’re handle. People can’t take you seriously

  • 24

    Who?

  • RediaR

    Reece and Olawale might actually be our best backfield.

  • 24

    But that hair is pretty serious.

  • RediaR

    I’d take that without hesitation.

  • SnBG

    Well he’s not. There’s nothing wrong with a checkdown. Pryor didn’t see open receivers last week

  • Raider_Riff

    They were wrong. So were you.

    The difference? They changed their minds. While you still cling to the hope that Flynn will one day return.

  • SnBG

    Good point but I’m just worried that that hair saps his brain juice.

  • Raider_Riff

    I thought you said you like your imposters?

    We all do. Your imposter is way cooler than you. Except when he is you, doing a bad imitation of your racist diatribes.

    It always amused me, the old blog set up. Guys would click and paste a comment…and blast it. Doubling our exposure to the nimrods. Then a couple of guys would be having a dialogue, and click and paste EVERY comment and response, getting ever longer, then state: “you’re right.”
    Peculiar. Tell me, Pman, does extended exposure to this…hmmmmm…I got it, blog…cause permanent damage? I’ll give them half my brain cells, but I still gotta make coffee in the morning.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    i’ve been saying this for a while.

  • 24

    I said it after the Jaguars game…Trade him while his value is the highest this season…but no!

  • SnBG

    See, that hair is sapping you’re brainjuice Markie. Please help yourself

  • rifflicks

    Enlighten us…tell us the plays McFadden should be running

  • 10centsworth

    I love it when you’re subtle PeeMan. You got the frogologist scratching his head and his nuts at the same time.

  • Raider_Riff

    Along with a lot of other BS.

    Your cred is nil.

    Tell us again how Flynnch is a top 10 QB

  • marks hair

    I don’t think you’re even a Raider fan. so your opinion about my handle falls kinda flat.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    the thing is that we all assumed his handle was a joke (the only funny thing he ever said), but in reality, it just might be his level of intelligence. like “Hi, I’m Mark’s Hair” and what he means is that he’s the blogging equivalent of mark’s hair. ridiculous, re-tarded, bizarre, and basically stupid. anyone should know better.

  • 10centsworth

    Ok. A poem. Ready?

  • Raider_Riff

    I think the proper term is “fulsarium”

  • 24

    I think it’s funny that you guys are attacking each other. You guys are bored!

  • The Big Banana

    Very telling. After a 135 QB rating performance, you would think folks would be happy. Guess you just can’t please some.

  • 24

    Don’t get smart sir…haha

  • Raider_Riff

    He has the make up of one. Im sure Colts fans are saying the same about Luck. Imagine that? Fans actually rooting for their players?

    You told us TP2 would fail. Just like some Bronco fans I know. Go figure.

    Carry on Raider-Hater

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    making fun of urself and complimenting urself in the same post. ur a serious werido, danny. and the best little puppy a blogger could have.

  • 24

    I’m sure the same things were said during the 1st 2 seasons of Rich Gannon when we went 8-8.

  • marks hair

    really rob? With all the idiotic things you predicted that have come to fail you still have s*** to say to me?
    don’t answer stupid it was a rhetorical question

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    LOL! the scouts were all wrong! and u, football guru impostor douche supreme, knew it all along!

  • 24

    Who?

  • 24

    The Mistake is gone people….mmmooovveeee ooonnnnnnn!!!!

  • RediaR

    We’re in no danger.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    ur a broken record, danny.

  • Raider_Riff

    mark’s hais is one of the most solid posters of this blog.

    He was THE FIRST to jump ship on last year and call for a fire sale. He saw it all before any of us would allow oursleves too.

    The fact that you dislike him doesnt say much about you.

    You claim to have never been wrong but the truth is, mark’s hair is actually someone that rarely has been wrong on this blog.

    take notice. You might learn a thing or too.

  • rifflicks

    leave Reese at FB and put Ford behind him….he’s big enough for 5 – 10 touches out of the backfield a game

  • rifflicks

    sweeps, traps, draws

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    everything i’ve said that was “wrong” has to do with pryor/flynn, correct?

    EVERYTHING else is right.

    u thought the qb said “hike” for the snap!

    still love that one.

    “Hike!”

  • bennings

    and yet, there’s Reggie still trying to lose it with another crazy QB gamble (Freeman), which – lucky for him (again) – didn’t pan out. Reggie needs to join Gambler’s Anonymous before it’s too late, lol.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    LOL! u love him don’t u? it’s u isn’t it?

    everyone knew we would suck last year. everyone.

  • marks hair

    I never said I thought that.. but stick with it because it really is the best you have

  • Raider_Riff

    We all are.

    Nobody likes you here.

    Nobody has ever come to your defense.

    The only thing “broken” is your heart. Since the day Flynn was benched.

  • 10centsworth

    God? Someone that keeps you from running amok, loving anarchy and kissing the babysitter?
    Nah.

  • Raider_Riff

    Dr Roberta has left?

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    yes u did.

    u said “when the qb says ‘hike”…..”

  • Raider_Riff

    When have you ever had a real football take outside of Pryor or Flynn?

    Any other time youve posted outside that subject material it’s been your racist rants.

    Youre not fooling anyone.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    LMFAO!!

    classic. i’m not here for “friends”.

    but ur lying about it anyway.

    everyone hates my impostor for killing the board. some don’t realize it’s u.

  • 0ak R8rs

    And you know we offered Freeman a deal how?

  • Raider_Riff

    You were your imposter.

    It’s pretty well documented.

  • 10centsworth

    Can’t get into the room with the smart guys? why is that?

  • 24

    I’m out…peace! Go Raiders!
