McFadden still unable to practice, Jones, Reece at the ready

Running back Darren McFadden is not at practice today for the second straight day. With time running out on the week, it looks more and more likely that the Raiders are going to rely upon a steady diet of Taiwan Jones and Marcel Reece.
That likelihood increases if Rashad Jennings isn’t able to play against ther New York Jets on Sunday. He is at practice but he still hasn’t passed all the tests required of players that suffer a concussion. He can’t play Sunday unless he passes all the tests as part of the league protocol.
Reece and Jones are getting plenty of work in practice in light of McFadden and Jeremy Stewart not available and the possibility of Jennings not being able to go.

– Wide receiver Denarius Moore (shoulder) also remains out, and he is unlikely to play against the Jets. Andre Holmes likely will get the start opposite Rod Streater, as he did against the Cowboys.
Holmes responded with seven receptions for 136 yards in that game, figures that surprassed his career totals to that point.

– Right guard Mike Brisiel is on the practice fiedl, but he is not taking part in any drills. As was the case Wednesday, Lucas Nix is working at Brisiel’s spot.
The rest of the Raiders line remains the same as it was against the Cowboys, with Jared Veldheer at left tackle, Khalif Barnes at left guard, Stefen Wisniewski at center and Tony Pashos at right tackle.

– Linebacker Miles Burris (toe), defensive end Jason Hunter (foot), offensive tackle Menelik Watson (illness) and strong safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) are at practice.
Branch remains on track to play Sunday, which would mark his first game action since Sept. 15, when he suffered a severe injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars and missed the next 10 games.
Just in time, too, given Usama Young (neck) got hurt against the Cowboys and hasn’t been able to practice yet this week.

    Here’s what will help his career: tell your friend Mrs Brown to stay away from Dmac. I think that’s part of the problem. You know what they say boxers shouldn’t do the night before a fight, right? Same rule applies to RBs.

  • KoolKell

    You can always say that, if it makes you feel better about yourself. Gawd knows you need it.

    John T. Reed (aka Jack Reed) is one of the most famous commercial RE investors in the nation and has been an author and lecturer for decades. Saying you’ve never heard of him would be like me saying I’ve never heard of Mozilla Firefox.

    And does your caucasian wife know you’re a racist?

  • RaidingTexas

    I didn’t get that either. Thought it must be symbolic somehow, considering it also includes a chair. You know, like “my life is as empty as these shelves, so I’m going to step up on this chair now with the tie I no longer wear and …” well, you know the rest.

  • Rifflicks

    it’s from craigslist he’s selling it for wine money

  • plunkhead

    Seattle looks bigger, stronger and faster then other teams but the niners are just cycling on so it should be a good match of roided up mofos on both sides
    Word in Seattle = Nike has secret underground drug labs producing HGH and Moose spray 2.0

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    So why does she stay married to a racist?

  • Rifflicks

    “This blog is unknown among the Massai, doofus.I’m plenty well known among Alameda Realtors. As I chaired the Local Govt Relations committee for 2 yrs.”…..this must be the chair he stole from the local Govt. Relations committee

  • KoolKell

    Obviously because I’m not one, dumbass. Smh.

  • Rifflicks

    it’s a concussion you moron….if you watched the Dallas Game you would have seen him get kicked in the head late in the game.

  • pcraider

    Just heard McFadden removed all the walls in his home because he kept running into them……

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    And yet you call people “cracker,” which is a derogatory term towards your Caucasian brothers and sisters.

  • Rifflicks

    now he can run unimpeded to the bank to cash his checks

  • _Mista_

    Injury is injury.

    In the same way that “parts are parts?”

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    He’ll have the last laugh when the big Romney Landslide happens…

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    I’ve never in my life heard a white person call another white person “cracker.” You’re watching too much Oz again…

  • Rifflicks

    if the election was this year it would be

    The Dawg went on jew date for a month and scored some totally hot hebrews

    But none of them believed in Brazilian bikini waxes, so that experiment ended quickly

  • KoolKell

    I don’t doubt it. I live in the Bay Area. You live in a Podunk hole, I guess.

  • Rifflicks

    true story

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Try Phoenix, Arizona. About 100,000 fewer people, and much better weather.

    If Sarah Silverman got a massive booblie job I’d take her on a lunch date

  • Rico Stifler

    Jennings concussion was inflicted on him. DMC never had an injury inflicted upon him by another player. At least, I can’t recall any….

    But what do you know? You’re one of our village idiots..

  • KoolKell

    Exactly, thank you.

    I own a house in Tucson, btw. Later.

  • Rico Stifler

    I think it could be symbolic as he wants to fill that shelf with Lombardi trophies…

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Drop the mic and walk away

  • KoolKell

    The President is on Hardball, intellectuals.

  • Rifflicks

    is Chris Matthews going to go down on him?

  • Rico Stifler

    That draft I really wanted to draft Glenn Dorsey…

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Man, I wish Norco Bob had been here for all that picture posting, he would’ve had a field day

    Sorry Old Troll, just keepin’ it realz

  • plunkhead

    Isn’t that a little crude? You might as well call it “celebrating diversity” like the rest of the heathens

  • Rico Stifler

    I don’t know how, but Obama has been a worse president than the half-brained Bush…..

  • 0ak R8rs

    I’m not sure I can ever vote democratic again.

  • Rico Stifler

    I have not voted in a while and I have been Independent for a while now cuz both of the major parties are flat out stupid….

  • KoolKell

    You just said you’re ignorant.

    There’s a small percentage of people who don’t consume any news.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Maybe if you two nerds laid on top of one another and cried your hearts out you’d come up with a solution

  • 0ak R8rs

    In registered independent. Was thinking of changing it so I could vote in the primaries. Not sure I’ll bother now. I hate ultra conservative BS. But Obama ruined the Democratic Party for me.

  • Rico Stifler

    Ignorant, how? Cuz I think Obama sucks? Does that make me a jive turkey?

  • Rico Stifler

    No, wait. I bet it somehow makes me racist, right?
