McFadden, Walker still sidelined with injuries

Share

ALAMEDA — Running back Darren McFadden and defensive lineman Vance Walker aren’t at practice again today. That makes it unlikely that either will play against the Kansas City Chiefs.
McFadden missed last game with an ankle injury that he suffered in his return from a three-game absence because of a hamstring injury. Now it’s likely that he’ll miss his sixth game this season Sunday and 29th of his six-year NFL career.
Rashad Jennings is expected back after he missed the New York Jets game with a concussion. Also, Marcel Reece and Taiwan Jones are healthy and ready for action if called upon.
Walker is recovering from a concussion that he suffered against the Jets. He has not been cleared to practice at all this week. Therefore, the odds are long of his making a rapid recovery between now and the Chiefs game.
Wide receiver Denarius Moore is back at practice, showing no effects from practicing the day before for the first time since he injured a shoulder against the Houston Texans on Nov. 17. He missed the past three games.
It remains to be seen how Moore fits into the equation upon his return, given the emergence of Rod Streater as a go-to receiver and Andre Holmes as a viable No. 2.
What is certain is that Moore pushes Jacoby Ford down the depth chart, which makes it a stretch to envision Ford getting many reps. Ford has 13 receptions for 99 yards so far this season.

    I drove home from KC kinda full years ago, and took a wrong turn… I knew if I kept going north I’d hit the interstate, but went up and down the most roller coaster hills I have ever seen! Finally I see some guy walking along the road, so I pull over, and he was a dude straight from “Deliverance.” I asked him where the Interstate was, he goes “INTERSTATE??” HUH?? I say never mind and rolled up my window quickly. True story…

  • SR Raider

    Good to hear. Hope he really means it

  • me too, if the price is right. $4 million was perfect this year. Let’s hope he doesn’t demand $6-7 million this offseason now that the NFL world knows he’s healthy and still has the ability to make plays

  • 10centsworth

    Really? Truly? gee, good to know. Dilfer has to be one of your favorite QBs, if that’s how you figure. Better than Marino. Tarkenton. Kelly. ’cause, cuz, what matters is…SB. Right?

  • Raider-Fan-inKC

    Wins and Losses are a team statistic, not individual. It’s not McGloin’s fault the defense couldn’t stop Dallas or New York

  • true, SR. i remember Seymour saying “i bleed silver & black” in one interview and then “it’d be tempting to test the market” the very next week

  • rudegruden

    Speaking of bets. Not sure if you remember ours during preseason. The bet was you took the over on 6 games won.

  • Theghostronin79

    True Dat…..He surprised me with what he brought to the defense. He’s still got some “Hawk” left.

  • rudegruden

    Whats Tebow up to these days? He was a winner.

  • what did I bet you, Rude?

  • 10centsworth

    I got buds and acquaintances been going to the Coliseum for years, to tailgate. Never go inside.

  • rudegruden

    it was a stupid bet. Whoever lost needed to change their screen name.

  • 10centsworth

    He won.

  • plunkhead

    I think Mark looks smarter when he uses complicated words such as deconstruct. I have never in my life heard the word

  • he made the guys around him better. Jenkins, Porter & Ross. even guys like Adams & Hayden flashed a few times (but not all, obviously)

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Has to be. It was Palmer’s fault, wasn’t it?

  • Jim Jesus

    Hope he means it. He is not perfect by any means but he is a pro. Veteran leadership is invaluable and if we can turn it around it would be great for him to be here. IMO

  • plunkhead

    I bet, he and ol tired dawgs both want a job next year

  • rudegruden

    yes i do. It’s a fancy spelling of “Losing”

  • 10centsworth

    over what? everything has been debated and settled…3,000 times.

  • i already did that. ask Dakota. unfortunately “IAmAlwaysWrong” has 100% of his comments awaiting moderation. somebody reported me, perhaps. not sure why. I don’t use foul language or attempt to bully ppl here

  • Jim Jesus

    Still is Palmers fault.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    There’s that.

  • rudegruden

    Hey SnBG, have i sent you that Bengals article from the 90’s?

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Steve can you tell Jerry its Vance Walker? It seems you know that but Jerry is having AD name change syndrome. Aka Lances disease.

  • Jim Jesus

    Disqus has been doing an e-mail address verification and moderation is what happens til its cleared up. Maybe??

  • Jim Jesus

    Wearing a ball cap helps too. LOL

  • rudegruden

    Thats sucks, you must have been caught up mistakenly in a Mistic Conversation

  • 10centsworth

    I say, Palmer to the SB, so you too can turn into an insufferable bore. Well…more of one.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Woodsen is no Seymour. Woodsen usually is honest about stuff like that.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Might have said the p o o p word. That’s a no-no.

  • plunkhead

    Wearing a Chico State sweater would help let everyone know he has high skills

  • SnBG

    In the 13 drafts since 2000, 36 quarterbacks have been drafted in the first round.. Through the 2013 season 16 have become outstanding players. If you add Breese to this list because in todays draft he would be a first rnder. that makes 17. They are Carson Palmer, Eli Manning, Phillip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, and Aaron Rodgers, Michael Vick, Jay Cutler, Mark Sanchez, Matt Ryan, Matt Stafford, Joe Flacco, Sam Bradford,Can Newton, Andrew Luck,Robert Griffin,Ryan Tannihill. That is almost a 50% chance of hitting on a franchise QB. I like those odds.

  • 10centsworth

    Good for him and I suspect he wants to step right into a coaches job. Where better, especially if he sees an upswing coming. Fast track to HC. Anywhere.

  • Gdog

    Coaching? The guy famous for falling asleep in the film room? Shirley you jest… and don’t call me…

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    If you meant cleaned up, no, that’s not going to do it.

  • 10centsworth

    giving out HALLELUJAHS and getting Cnotes thrown at him by the throngs. shhhh…he could be the anti christ they were all warned about. Wouldn’t THAT be justice.

  • I can send him a couple if he needs one. Or a Sierra Nevada one.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Palmer? More often than not.

  • who’s the other DT? Sam McGee? Paul Sims?

  • the authoritative dr robert

    @CorkOnTheNFL: Offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Matt McGloin audibled from called play to run on play in which Marcel Reece bolted for 63 yards Sun.

    Exhibit 243 of why McG is a better qb than Pryor. Accept it. Embrace it.

  • 10centsworth

    don’t like the odds for a guy in KC watching wooleys crap. That go on your resume?

  • 10centsworth

    what you got against da dog? Yeah, dog, it’s cool if you fire up that grill inside our car. Windows up to keep the heat in, of course.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    miss tick(he get’s no caps from me anymore) started the “Golden Haired Hero’ thing, and Raider Rockstar. though reluctant to accept credit, started the ‘Cult of Palmer’.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    I do I do at least until Pryor goes up the mountain to visit with the mystical House and in vibes the mechanics of an accurate passer.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    how about the guy driving by?

  • 10centsworth

    funny. all I remember of Palmer is…what was it? Get back to you on that.

  • more proof that Olson’s play calling sucks… glad he was honest enough to give credit where it was due though!

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Accept Papa is speaking with his heart not his mind because neither wants to give up their cool gigs they have right now.

  • SnBG

    When you look how the first QBs taken in the draft since 2000 have done you can see that there is at least a 69% chance they will succeed. JR screwed that up a bit but over all not bad.
