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.”

    ur a complete nimrod. i’ve posted about EVERYTHING raiders. every player, position group, transaction, scheme, draft pick, etc.

    and i’ve never made a racist rant.

    ur a complete fool.

  • Raider_Riff

    Everyone knew Flynn would suck this year.

    Except you.

    And whats worse, is you still deny it and look for excuses.

  • marks hair

    yes, because I didn’t want to write a series of huts.. I thought Id just wright hike so everyone would understand what I meant… but there’s always one dummy that just won’t understand no matter how much you simplify things.

  • SnBG

    Hike, LMAS, hike, seriously hair. are you for real.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    what would u do? spend hours re-reading my posts that u have copied to ur computer, and argue with urself?

  • Raider_Riff

    We know youre not here for friends.

    You make that clear with every troll-like post.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    he really said that, dude.

    i made fun of him then for it.

  • 10centsworth

    He loves you. He talks to you…what did he say?…every six seconds.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    LOL! ooookkkkkaaaaaayyyyyyy!

    “HIKE!”

  • Raider_Riff

    Then why isnt anyone defending you?

    Why do so many here hate you?

    You dont get it, and you never will. Cause youre simply not a Raider fan.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    LOL. it is? by who?

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    it was reported by several media.

  • 10centsworth

    I got a cat ranch myself. Huge lugs you can herd.

  • Raider_Riff

    Quick, blog bros vote…

    What is more embarrasing:

    Saying “Hike” (mark’s hair)

    Or man-love for Flynn (nurse roberta)?

  • SnBG

    Peace Keifer.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    yes he does love me.

  • SnBG

    You can go home now hair, you’ve been sufficiently slapped around for one day.

  • R8derdiehard

    When hue was coach he looked like a power back but I agree we should use him in space and on the edges cause he struggles going down hill

  • marks hair

    this is exactly why I’ve always called you a troll you have no football takes you don’t want to talk football you want to start stupid nonsense like this.. you’d rather pretend I don’t know about a snap count and I think they actually say hike, than talk football and maybe take your lumps for being wrong about your football takes

  • Raider_Riff

    Want to know what is really sad…

    Is that if Dr Roberta had a time machine and could do the last 9 months over….

    He’d do the same thing. He’d jump on Flynn and ride him to an early grave.

    Complete idiot. Troll. Fake-Fan.

  • bennings

    that’s pretty ignorant – in 2011, which was the season after he gained 1200 yds rushing and another 600 receiving, he was on pace to eclipse his 2010 numbers significantly, until he was injured in game 7. That season he led the league in yards-after-contact (by a wide margin) and routinely was seen blowing up would be tacklers, by lowering his shoulder and exploding through them. The new regime asked him to stop taking on tacklers so aggressively (we can only assume to keep him healthy), plus half of Dmac’s touches since the new regime have been up-the-gut, which is not how Hue utilized him. Dmac will be a bargain in free agency, and if used correctly (15-18 quality touches/game), he will be a great asset to the offense. Dmac doesn’t design or call his own plays. Dmac didn’t dismantle a pretty good OL – yet he’s still averaging better than 4yds/carry behind this tattered line. When Watson and Velds return, his average will return to 5+/carry.

  • Raider_Riff

    Nope. We’d do what we do every time you leave the blog for the few minutes you actually sleep a day…

    …we talk football.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    lol.

    no one needs to defend me from ur pansy little attacks. does someone need to defend Thor from a mosquito?

    the Pryor Brigade hates me for rattling their cages so much. like a bunch of caged hyenas who hate the guy who teases them and then goes to get some coffee.

    the last part is awesome. i don’t “get it” that people hate me, and THEREFORE, i’m not a raider fan.

    logic isn’t exactly ur strong suit, is it danny?

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    HIKE!

  • 10centsworth

    I’d like to see: “Cork, do you think we should strip Raiderette BeBouncie, drape her over the goal posts and have the team run out between her legs. Do you think THAT would improve the quarterback play?”

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    The multiple recycled Copy/pastes were funny. No F’ing clue who said what. Attempted to educate ‘em, before I knew better.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Link to offer sheet and contract details?

  • Raider_Riff

    I’ll break it down for you, real simple…

    Raider fans hate Raider haters

    You are a Raider Hater

    Therefore…. get ready for it….

    Raider fans hate you

    Pretty simple logic.

    And please, save us the “youve been a Raider fan for X amount of decades” speech.

    Nothing youve ever said here remotely speaks of you being a Raider fan.

  • R8derdiehard

    He doesn’t get on here as much now thats for sure

  • marks hair

    its a joke.. he knows what I meant when I said hike.. as if I wanted to go through a whole snap count while typing away on my phone.. does he say Hut, go hu hi … half the time the snap count is a guttural sound.. I used hike like I was talking to children because he acts like a child

  • Raider_Riff

    Ya, I’d say he’s toned it down from 23 hours to about 17 hours a day.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    u chase me around from post to post.

    little puppy.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    and u copy and paste EVERY post.

    awesome.

  • bennings

    google “sports illustrated trotter McKenzie”- it’s detailed in that article very clearly.

  • Raider_Riff

    I know.

    Im making a mockery of him.

    if the best he’s got to come up with is “hike” versus the fact that he’s a well known Raider-hating troll then I cant waste the opportunity to further ridicule him for it.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Oak, despite our differences(or what I think of as you being wrong) I think you’d agree we get along OK. In that spirit of amity, would you please find another avatar? I’ve grown to hate that picture.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    except my complete knowledge of the team and desire to have great players, and my refusal to praise poor onnes cuz they’re “exciting”.

  • SnBG

    ROFLMAS

  • Raider_Riff

    Delusions of grander.

    Psycho.

    You’d think with such vast knowledge, someone on here would agree with you.

  • 10centsworth

    Make the Black Hole happy…for sure.

  • Que

    Let the man do his job. Turn every rock. We are having some success with a lot of nobodies according to the media

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    did u just accidentally post as riff when u were meaning to be mark’s hair?

  • Raider_Riff

    I dont need to. They are all the same.

    “Pryor sucks, Flynn rules, blah blah blah”

    How much did you waste on that Flynn jersey?

  • Que

    I agree, its still an audition for the season. And that’s what reggie and dennis allen are doing.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    u have posted my posts from months ago several times.

  • SnBG

    No, hike is pretty funny.Hair, just admit you said that and meant it

  • marks hair

    yeah I told him to stick with hike.. he should write hike instead of talking to me for the rest of his life because his football takes have been a joke..

  • Raider_Riff

    careful Doc. Youre racist tendencies are starting to show again…

    The H is pretty close to the K on the keyboard. I’d hate for you to have another Freudian slip.

  • SnBG

    hair is a Raider hating troll.

  • Raider_Riff

    hardly.
