Criner active for first time

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 at 11:44 am in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders wide receiver Juron Criner is active for the first time this season, with Brice Butler and Andre Holmes designated as inactive Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Butler, a seventh-round draft pick out of San Diego State, had two dropped passes in a 21-18 win over Pittsburgh. Holmes was expected to have an increased role but has been battling a hamstring strain.

Also inactive for the Raiders are safety Tyvon Branch, defensive end Ryan Robinson, center-guard Andre Gurode, defensive lineman Brian Sanford and tackle Tony Pashos.

Also active for the first time today is linebacker Martez Wilson, claimed off waivers from the New Orleans Saints two weeks ago. Tackle Menelik Watson is also active. Watson hasn’t played in a game since playing the first half against Seattle in the preseason finale.

    yup. They wait for you to blink.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I don’t know who Zak Stacy is, but my eyes tell me he is better than McFadden.

  • RaidingTexas

    Why can this team not get it together at the WR position?

  • Nick Gancayco

    Drew brees jus got sacked. Saints facing 3rd snd 38. So i guess pryor isnt the only qb to habe that happen to him after all. Like some in here say

  • Just Fire Baby

    Because we are relying on 5th and 7th round picks who didn’t necessarily excel in college week to week.

  • Raider O

    Good teams find a way to win.
    Bad teams find a way to lose.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Rivers intercepted and the dischargers heading down..down..down.

  • RaidingTexas

    Wasn’t it 43 yards needed for the Raiders, though? Never saw confirmation, but it was believed to possibly be the NFL record.

  • Raidersfan727

    The jets are the absolute wildest team in the nfl

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Lol.
    From the head coach on down.

  • RaidingTexas

    Well, it was a rhetorical question.

  • Raider O

    Exactly.
    Moore: 5th round
    Streater: UNdrafted
    Butler: 7th
    Criner: 5th
    Ford: 4th
    Holmes: undrafted

  • RaiderE

    #Splitting hairs

  • Just Fire Baby

    Ford was a 4th as well
    Can’t trust your stats!!!!!!!!
    (LOL)

  • RaidingTexas

    Lol. That was a painful game to watch. Man I hate the chefs.

  • The Big Banana

    A microcosm of the Chiefs season thus far right here. Smh

  • Raider O

    LMAo I will fix it.
    Still LOL

  • Just Fire Baby

    How crazy does it sound that the Bills might have won this game with the Flynnchize playing?
    Tuel is downright awful.

  • Raiders for Life

    Well, the Bills do have 5 drops so far.

  • The Big Banana

    And how crazy that Flynnch couldn’t beat him out for this start.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    LOL! “Might have won with Flynn” Good one dude!

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    I think Marinovich had that in KC in that playoff game too. Thought it was 3rd & 50

  • Just Fire Baby

    How long has been there? 3 weeks?
    Not propping up Flynn, just saying Tuel shat the bed while getting like 225 yards rushing and his defense allowing 150 yards total.

  • Raider O

    Dischargers are in meltdown mode.

  • RaidingTexas

    You could be right. The great omniscient one Google did not have a definitive answer as to what the record is.

  • The Big Banana

    Lol at Bills fan. 3rd and 6, team down by 1 score, and a good majority of the fans with hands in pockets not making any noise.

  • RaidingTexas

    Six wins might do it for the NFC Least this year. Unreal how bad that division is.

  • Raidersfan727

    RG3 and the redskins had a longer one last year believe it or now

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Too bad Queefs can’t be

  • Just Fire Baby

    Never will understand why Keenan Allen fell so far in the draft.
    YOu watched him at Cal and he was the best player on the field most weeks.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Vic Tafur‏@VicTafur5m

    Menelik Watson took some 1st-team reps at RT in warmups. Maybe he’s more than swing tackle in 1st game back from calf injury.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    That’s a catch…but Bills will get screwed

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Dierdorf defending the lie

  • Just Fire Baby

    Saints and Cowboys losing will really mess up some survivor pools.

  • The Big Banana

    They’re all in bed with each other. Cronies. We witnessed as much when the replacements were here. Not doing much worse than the regulars yet catching all kinds of flak from talking heads.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Damn!
    Rivers getting the ball back, 3 down, with 2:10 to go!

  • SaintKaufman

    Bill Callahan is the dumbest OC in football!! Hahahahahahaha! Murray with 4 carries in the game vs Romo 45 passes!! Idiot!! :D

  • The Big Banana

    Lol, a vote down? Dr B00b or someone really like the job the zebras do in here? Or maybe it’s Vegas voting down a tin foil hatter? Lol

  • RaidingTexas

    The Vikings coach is the dumbest in football. Had a chance to kick a FG and go up by 6. Instead, tried to draw the Cowboys offsides on 4th and 5, ended up taking a delay of game penalty to put them out of FG range. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Wow.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Bingo!!!!

  • The Big Banana

    Haha! Chump!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Man we got the worst broadcast crew for the game

  • EMRaiders

    man, was really hoping for KC and SD to lose today… oh well… that just makes this game that much more important.

  • RaidingTexas

    There’s always radio

  • Just Fire Baby

    Jets tried to sit on a lead.
    Can’t do that.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Taiwan scares me back there

  • Just Fire Baby

    Hey same start as last week!!!
    93 yarder here we go…

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I don’t know what they mean by ‘inconsistant’.
