Moore could miss Titans game

Denarius Moore missed practice Thursday with a shoulder injury for the second straight day, leaving open the possibility the Raiders will be without their leading receiver when they host the Tennessee Titans.

Moore leads the Raiders with 37 receptions for 569 yards in 10 games with a team-leading five touchdowns.

Also not on the field during the media window were running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) and starting defensive end Jason Hunter (foot).

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday Moore wouldn’t risk worsening the injury by playing.

“This is going to be something that he’s going to have to deal with as we finish out the season,’’ Allen said. “Whenever he can tolerate the pain and be able to push through it, then he’ll be back up. It’s not a surgery thing or anything like that.’’

— The Raiders have asked for an extension to Friday in order to sell enough tickets to declare a sellout and lift the local television blackout.

The Raiders have sold out their last seven games since their last blackout, which was last Dec. 2 against the Cleveland Browns.

— Moore, running back Darren McFadden (hamstring), defensive end Jason Hunter (foot) and safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) did not practice. Guard Mike Brisiel (ankle/knee), wide receiver Juron Criner (shoulder), Holmes (shoulder), linebacker Kaluka Maiava (ribs), tackle Matt McCants (toe), defensive tackle Daniel Muir (knee) and quarterback Terrelle Pryor (knee) were limited.

Allen said Pryor “moved around well’’ but there was no determination if he would be able to serve as the backup quarterback.

— Wide receiver Tim Brown and guard Steve Wisniewski were among 25 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Brown was a finalist for the past four years. Wisniewski is a semifinalist for the first time.

    I’d love to see a healthy Pryor line up as a WR, run a sideline fly and have MCG lay it out there for him. But that’s not going to happen, not this game (because of the knee) and if TP won’t relent, ever. Damn, he’s fast, tall, and I am assuming he can catch that kind of ball.

  • Jim Jesus

    Yeah, need to hope injuries do not hamper us though and that has not been the case so far.

  • 10centsworth

    How about a better parking spot? Gannon doing play by play? Steak instead of hot dogs?

  • prometheus

    you’re being mean to Steveopa otherwise known as Mistic the super buster

  • 10centsworth

    I don’t like it, as injury prone as we’ve been. We’ll have practice squad guys, guards, lining up in the slot.

  • JOn Wooah

    lol at the nfl figured him out in 2 months. Yes tp2 is done for his career. he can never get better 8 games and it was all over. lmao sarcasm.

  • Big Tom ‘the hand’ Cable

    Raids will eat the nutts right outta the titans sack. Book it.

  • Tell that to Clint Longley, Billy Joe Hobert and Matt Flynn.
    Guys don’t always improve. In fact, quite a few play well for a game or 5 and then are out of the league in a year or 2.

  • JOn Wooah

    That and in two games he had a pass rating about 115 .. and explosive player.. and the most explosive on the raiders roster accroding to papa and 95.7 the game djs.

    Even Papa wants the raiders to still use Tp2. u cant have him with a clip board and baseball cap on.. U gotta find ways to use him when he is healthy.

  • JOn Wooah

    I dont have to tell that to anybody. Tp2 is gonna have to prove it to the coaches.

  • 10centsworth

    What was that Arkansas QB (within the last ten years), drafted I think by Jax, that was immediately moved to WR? Had a decent to good career till his proclivities caught up with him. Still might be around.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Seen him four times over a 27 year-span in three different states. Awesome every time.

  • Jim Jesus

    These are tried and true predictions people. Worked last game I am all in and on board. Sack munchers.

  • JOn Wooah

    i get it though.. u are trying to go against the grain.. be the contrarian. its cool.

  • JOn Wooah

    well tp2 brought hope when flyn was a dude.. and he was and explosive playmaker for a time.. and he was al’s last draft pick.

    Hows that for starters?? for Tp2 fans adoration. Get a clue.

  • 10centsworth

    In that regard…its been a GREAT year for the practice squad.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    It was Centanni’s in the pilot, Satriale’s afterwards.

  • Matt Jones

  • JOn Wooah

    has a video on utube.. where Tp2 Randy Moss’d the guy for a TD in the End zone.

    was a TD against Texas in a bowl game..was nice.

  • 10centsworth

    Only time he has the clipboard in his hands. Noticed? Or within earshot of the coach when he’s on the sidelines.

  • Not really but OK.
    I think TP will improve from 1 TD to 8 INT’s, i.e. the worst month of QB’ing in Raiders history.
    But he isn’t a long-term NFL starter.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    If he could go back to his senior year in high school, then choose a different college(pro style passing offense) at which to play, compete with others at college for starting qb job, then he might have the ceiling to which you refer because his instincts might be different.

  • Goldie7

    new post.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    WTF x 1000

  • bcz24

    Derek Anderson anyone?

  • 10centsworth

    He didn’t then, nor now, want that. As he said just this week…he has a “certain style”. This is crazy, going over this again and again, but here it is. I hope he is a Raider for the next ten years…and in the Pro Bowl. And inducted in the HOF. that is what I want for this kid. He ain’t getting all that at qb. I say that because we can’t build a team around a constant “project”. He clearly does not make the rest of the team better…which IS also his job.

  • bcz24

    Matt McGloin has been voted Pepsi Rookie of the Week!

  • 10centsworth

    Thanks. He resolve his “problems”?

  • 10centsworth

    No doubt. I think he should be in the running for Player of the Week. Deserves it.

  • RaidingTexas

    The blame for 5 TDs 10 INTs in eight games has to fall mostly on the QB. Bad OL and WR play are just excuses by the Brigade at this point.

  • VanHeathen30

    Bo on 95.7 talking about Al and man, beyond words.
    i’m so glad i’ll be able to get to the game on Sunday…

  • PartyPooper

    Who are you? Coat-tail poster of the week? Whiner of the week? Foolhardy follower hoping for a bone?
    STFU. You might be called on to voice an opinion, and no one wants to see you start something you can’t finish, or have never tried.

  • 10centsworth

    Ok. I know a shot and beer intellect when I meet ’em. Keep up the…drivel?

  • funnyfalcon

    Happy for Matt! Deserved it big time.

  • David Kern

    I think were geared up for a big one. We’ve got some injury concerns but the beat downs we took earlier in the season were just the thing we needed to grow. We were reading our own press clippings-there is balance now. DA will have the focused and pumped for an outside-chance playoff run. Anyone wanna go over/under on the sack total(ours)? At 3.5 I am picking the over.

  • David Kern

    Agreed. Even if we would have hired a Qb coach, someone with real faith in him as the future I think he’d be our gay right now. Maybe we did, I don’t remember but when Pyror said no one “taught me throw correctly” until this off-season I thought to myself, why didnt Al have someone in place? With that said I still think he can catch up. He’s that gifted of an athlete. But am just as happy with a performing Mcgloin. Pyror has shown enough to be ample trade bait if McGloin can keep it up.

  • David Kern

    I didn’t know he was gone for good? If it just conjecture, I sort of agree. He’ll command a crap ton of money from us, no matter how much cap room you have I don’t think you pay number #1 for a guy that’s this up and down and I love him as a player. He’ll go to the Jet’s or Pats and be super star, probably.

  • Just start throwing them back about 6 hrs before your flight, everything will be swell

  • I’m starting to wonder whether hungry rookies are a better way to go these days. Some of these VFAs are a crap shoot after you payem

  • We’re going to see Pryor alright, our new starting all pro TE

  • Gdog

    Again.. if MD doesn’t have enough money to field a winning team, he should sell it.
