Hayden, McFadden, Criner not practicing

By Steve Corkran
Friday, November 8th, 2013 at 11:12 am in Oakland Raiders.

Running back Darren McFadden and cornerback D.J. Hayden are among those not on the practice field Friday, making them unlikely to play against the New York Giants.
McFadden hasn’t practiced all week as a result of the aggravated hamstring injury he suffered against the Eagles last Sunday. All indications are, Rashad Jennings will start in place of McFadden on Sunday against the Giants.
It’s also likely that the Raiders will be without nickel cornerback Hayden, backup linebacker Kaluka Maiava and backup wide receiver Juron Criner. None of the three is taking part in practice today. Hayden isn’t even on the field watching.
Also, rookie Menelik Watson is all but assured his first regular-season start at right offensive tackle, given Tony Pashos and Matt McCants, the two that started at right offensive tackle in Oakland’s first eight games, haven’t practiced all week.
Coach Dennis Allen is hesitant to use players in a game if they miss every practice in the lead up to the game.
On the bright side, quarterback Terrelle Pryor, kicker Sebastian Janikowski and wide receiver Rod Streater are going through the paces with their teammates and look ready to roll Sunday.
Backup linebacker Miles Burris also is not taking part in drills today, which marks the second straight day of that being the case. That doesn’t bode well for his being activated to the 53-man roster between now and when the 21-day window expires, at which time the Raiders have to activate Burris, place him on season-ending injured reserve or release the second-year player.

    sorry but someone else posted the article and agreed with it, i simply chimed in.

    by the way the poster that posted this article dis greed with me then says he agrees with whitlock,.

    i wanted to highlight the hypocrisy of said poster.

  • the douche dan garcia

    I agree with Whitlock cuz he’s a straight shooting, honest, and fair person.

    U take things and run off into an absurd corner of crazy town.

    Big difference. Whitlock is a voice of reason. Ur a voice of insanity.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    pretty sure that has nothing to do with what i posted.

    However i am equally sure that barry sanders said he left the game because he felt mistreated by the lions and football as an industry and was tired of giving up his body ( being vicitimized) and not getting the respect he felt he deserved.

    Im paraphrasing of course

  • R8erEduc8er

    Whitlock is a talented writer. But he’s a snake. He can paint a black, a white, a latino, the wealthy, the poor, the sick, the left, the right, etc. all as victims and all as perpetrators all in one article. Because he hates everybody, including himself.

  • VanHeathen30

    Timing of DJ’s injury seems funny, especially with Romo saying he should sit out for the rest of the season on the post game show Sunday…its only one game, but those groin injuries can linger.

  • the douche dan garcia

    I know that u consider urself a militant that’s pushing the envelope. But ur not. Ur just a hateful douche bag that turns people against the black cause more than anyone like fangs could ever do.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    you are correct in that all non whites are victims of the supremacist power structure we live under

  • NewEra S&B

    The RGIII-Garcon duo looked phenomenal last night.. If only we had that premier receiver and polished passing QB.

  • the douche dan garcia

    I don’t see that. I find him very insightful and truthful. My opinion.

  • VanHeathen30

    After Sundays Debacle, it’s hard to believe the ‘check cashers’ are all off the roster… too many candy hangovers?

  • the douche dan garcia

    Of course

  • R8erEduc8er

    The evidence is right in front of you. You and Mistic disagree with each other, both agree with Whitlock, and both think Whitlock is making their point lol

  • Just Fire Baby

    Or just making it up.

  • the douche dan garcia

    It’s really not about color. It’s about wealth. Lots of whites being oppressed to.

    I know where ur mindset comes from. U hate seeing the black community like it is and u refuse to blame them, as that would make u feel inferior. So u blame whitey. For everything.

    But lots of whites are down and out too.

    I’m for the black community raising utself up but they need to look in the mirror or all they will do is feel sorry for themselves and look for someone else to change for them. Won’t happen.

    Change urself.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    whitlock says

    “the tenants of white supremacy have been injected into popular youth culture”

    that is true, and the victims are powerless to stop it, and most are even unaware of the fact it is happening at all.

    it isnt that anything is being ‘embraced” as much as it is an indoctrination and programming process.

    it is a part of the victimization and abuse process under our current supremacist system.

    again thanks for posting that article proving that I am not the person making this up, it is being studied by a few courageous non white scholars. These are their findings

  • R8erEduc8er

    Agreed

  • Just Fire Baby

    Nobody wants to talk about McCants grading out as a top 10 tackle this past month?
    ZERO SACKS OR QB HITS ALLOWED in 208 snaps?

  • R8erEduc8er

    I like McCants. He’s a big, agile guy too. Hope he’s not out long. If Veldeer’s contract situation gets “out of whack”, we may be alright with starting him at RT and moving Watson to LT.

  • the douche dan garcia

    U and ur ilk think blacks are “programmed” and incapable if seeing the truth. U apparently find them to be weak.

    Beyond the obvious idiocy of this argument, here’s one for u: how did u and these “brave scholars” break out if ur “programming”? Cuz ur smarter than the masses?

    U see blacks in ur community who refuse to change. Thus makes no sense to u so u blame whitey for brainwashing.

    It is handed down and the cycle repeats itself, but it is DEFINITELY embraced. Even by blacks who have ways out.

    It’s called the lure of evil. Easy money. Being a “baller”. Ego.

    Menelik Watson is starting at right OT for the #Raiders on Sunday. Jack Cornell will be signed from the practice squad to back up Watson.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Quite the test for him this weekend.
    Not sure if he will be an upgrade over McCants.

  • JOn Wooah

    Hope Watson who never even went through TC can make it through this game because if Cornell gets in it will get ugly.

    You already cant count on guys like Mccants, Pashos .. all Backups on any other team, or not on the roster. WOW

  • R8erEduc8er

    It’s all about education, my dear Watsons. Don’t care what color you are, give them access to a good education and “success” is that much easier to attain.

  • the douche dan garcia

    I agree with the basis of what missdick thinks, insofar as what Whitlock says.

    Where I disagree with missdick is his blatant bigotry and hateful dishonesty.

    For instance, Whitlock knew Jeff George and was a big supporter of his. Whitlock would honestly evaluate any qb in the game, black or white.

    Missdick would never do that. He touts EVERY black qb and puts down EVERY white qb. He’s a liar and buffoon. So obviously dishonest and in service of his agenda, that he creates bitter discord at every turn.

    Whitlock is cool. Missdick is an a hole.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Not into oline stats sorry.

  • JOn Wooah

    Tp2 has zero continuity with his OLINE, this is huge to any Qb. Not good. That GIANTS DLINE will come back into form and ESPN will be talking about the Gaints like the did with the eagles CAREER DAY for FOLES…

    IF . IF

    Watson doesnt make it through the game

  • the douche dan garcia

    True. Education will tend to break down walls in ur mind, and help u see things from multiple angles.

    However, there are many cases of educated people still being idiots.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Whitlock was great on Sports Reporters. He used to give it to Bill Rhoden sometimes on the racist stuff.
    Plays devils advocate a lot, which even if it is fake and for show, is entertaining.

  • the douche dan garcia

    And there are many simple, uneducated good people, that would turn away from stupidity out of decency.

  • JLofty

    Still can’t believe the team (well D mostly) so absolutely cr@pped the bed last weekend.
    I mean you have a shot to go 4-4 and get in the playoff (wildcard) mix and you come out and let a fairly bad team put up 7 TD passes on you?!?!? Wtf?

  • Just Fire Baby

    Just opinion?
    Why not some 3rd party, unbiased, FACTS?

  • R8erEduc8er

    Still trying to wrap my head around it lol smdh

  • the douche dan garcia

    We actually have quite a few good OL.

    Veldheer, Watson, barnes, pashos, and mccants are all quality OT.

    Bris and wiz have played well. Gurode is still decent.

    Nix has struggled. That’s it.

  • Papertiger

    NEW POST!!!

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    no slob

    your above take implies that there is an inherent evil or character defect in black people

    you are a clearly a racist slob.

    secondly being misinformed or miseducated is not an indication of “being weak”, it is only confirms the status of victim.

    we dont control the music on the radio, the programming on tv, we dont control the images in children cartoons or the education curriculum in schools.

    all of these among other factors are the key ways people are indeed programmed.

    slob your in deep water and you dont have the intellectual capacity or the prerequisite knowledge necessary to engage me in this conversation.

    you know nothing of people called black, you are a racist supremacist.

  • R8erEduc8er

    +1

  • rifflicks

    Birds of a Feather…..Whitlock is the biggest bigot in the media…and proof of the damage done to honest profession by Affirmative Action hirings ….do you race card playing imbeciles have a club?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    speaks to the lowly state of our o line

    the fact that the team could dig up a guy like maccants and he immediately provides an instant upgrade on our team proves this o line is awful.

  • rifflicks

    start with your lips

  • R8erEduc8er

    Lol there’s no WAY you’re 40-something years old!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Never heard you complain about the O-line last year.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    affirmative action?

    race card?

    Honestly cave man i cant follow your gibberish

    how do those things relate to the topic at hand?

    back to jug band practice with you moon shiner

  • eastoaklandraider

    You realize the white man implemented a plan back in the 60′s where they flooded the black community with guns and drugs and blacks were never able to recover.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Its been a horrible domino effect since then.

  • rifflicks

    You can’t believe that a successful defense built around creating Mismatches with the substitution of players based on the situation struggled playing the Eagles that go no huddle 100% of the time and rarely, if at all, allow for Defenses to make situational substitutions.

  • rifflicks

    Why?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    your all over the place mac butt cheese 20

    i point out where whitlock article which you claim to agree with basically said exactly what i have been saying here for years.

    so where is the “blatant bigotry and hateful dishonesty”

    you cant dismiss my take then agree with whitlock on the same hand.

    lmao

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Coop, Brisiel, and Smith went to the pro bowl, didn’t they?

  • eastoaklandraider

    I prefer the eye test with olinemen, Mcants needs a larger sample size.

  • R8erEduc8er

    I’d think only a high schooler would devote so much time on a Raider blog trying to get under someone’s skin. But then again, being 40-something years old and acting the way you do does validate how much of a loser you are smh
