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.

    winter golf? why not, in summer the fairways turn into concrete landing strips. 200 yard drives end up 350 out there. hope they didn’t tee you off.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    4,000 yds, 22 TD’s 14 Int’s with no WR’s, hadto makeBrandon frickin Myers a star? Ring a bell? He did let Baltimore score 55 pts though.

    It is cold in Jersey in January.

  • SR Raider

    Hope you’re right. I know he really appreciated the fan support when he came out for his interview last year. Definitely has more class than Seymour

  • 10centsworth

    as it should be. people who live in Jersey…well, you know.

  • rifflicks

    really???? REALLY????
    Olson doesn’t know the Defensive set when he calls the play in the huddle thru McGloin’s headset…..that’s why it’s a necessity to have a QB like McGloin who can read the Defense and see that they are not going to get favorable matchups and can change the play.

    Somebody actually up ticked this? Was it because Rock Star was being sarcastic or has he reverted back to his IAmAlwaysWrong mode.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Palmer’s a loser get over it. (Sarcastic Font)

    You wanna hear a coincidence? I played against Vaughn Walker in High school. He went to Watseka high. Now a muckie muck federal judge. He’d give me life if I reminded him.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    That is pretty amazing considering the run game Seattle had at the time. We better look at more options that QB in 1st.

  • 10centsworth

    strange. He did that? I just remember him reaching in and tearing my heart out, just when he had the chance(s) to set Raider Lore. We talkin’ same guy?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Warms up in February, I hear.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Remembers you that fondly, you figure? Or no Death Penalty?

  • 1960AutumnWind

    And he is doing this as a UDFA with minimal reps and plays in camp/preseason in his 4th game… Pretty amazing. Depending on the next week better scout Players other than QB in 1st round of the draft.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Always. That’s Palmer.

  • rifflicks

    OH NO…..Olson Sucks

  • More often not than often

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    As opposed to having graduated High School.

  • SnBG

    Olsons play calling got a lot better the minute MM stepped in for Pryor. His play calling almost brought us back against the Jets.

  • 10centsworth

    actually, he WOULD remember me. Small downstate schools, same conference, we played ALL sports pretty much against the same guys. We would go over and screw their cheerleaders, they’d come over and we’d kick their butts. Think “tagging” isn’t retro? I can remember hanging upside down over a hwy, from a viaduct, painting away. Got their water tower the same nite.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Olsen is not the problem here in my mind it is the overall lack of talent. He deserves at least partial credit for McGloin’s development as well as getting Pryor ready to go after the Flynn flameout.

  • rifflicks

    it helps to have a QB that can understand and execute all of the plays called

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Were that to happen,I’d be mute.

  • rifflicks

    no the problem is idiots on this blog making judgements that don’t know their a$$ from a hole in the ground about football

  • rifflicks

    hope you understand music better than you do football

  • 1960AutumnWind

    You know I bet Olsen would be OC of the year if he had Drew Brees as a QB and Grahmn as a TE. It is sad that people do not try to diagnose what is actually going on.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I still have your shoes, after you slipped out of them. Oops.

  • rifflicks

    Reggie will do well to keep the staff intact for next season

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Another thing that changed is suddenly Olsen discovered #45…. When a guy is supposed to be 2nd or 3rd in a progression of a QB that does one read contributions can go down.

  • 10centsworth

    got lucky, landed on a semi heading to California. Principle sent me my diploma and a “thank you” note. something like “good riddance”.

  • SR Raider

    Seems like the receivers also got better/more open as soon as McG went in. Also fewer sacks so the o-line looks better

  • rifflicks

    45 was open a bunch of times….Pryor never looked

  • 10centsworth

    Yeah. I was the guy who flushed cherry bombs down the 3rd floor toilets, just to get out of an exam. The girl I cheated off of was sick.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    I have said that. Our quarrell is on RM being a little overzealous on the austerity this year and on some specific misses on players. Only really bad staff miss so far was Mr. “I teach what I know”

  • rifflicks

    no time to sack….WR’s were hit while still in their routes

  • DutchRaid

    Great News, that outstanding player Mark Sanchez should be a free agent this year! Lol, sorry…just be an @$$!

  • rudegruden

    In this 3 years as Offense coordinator, his offense has averaged 22nd in Offense. This year, he’s 26th, so he’s not too far from his average

  • the authoritative dr robert

    There was no Flynn flameout.

    That lie needs to stop.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    I guess this means MM got lucky or maybe all the players were tanking to make Pryor look bad?

  • 10centsworth

    what?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    They needn’t have bothered.

  • Theghostronin79

    Are you sure it’s not “Everybody ELSE” just playing Better for MM…….In some kind of grand conspiracy?

  • rifflicks

    everybody gets to look back in time at his pick and judge except for RM

  • rudegruden

    Good stats but agreed with DutchRaid, you need to take out Sanchez

  • rifflicks

    lol.. yeah it’s racial too

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Yea I am aware of that intellectually but I also hate losing as well.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    You got game to win. Just one. McG or Flynn?

  • Theghostronin79

    Oh, you KNOW it is……

  • the authoritative dr robert

    If McG ends with a 87+ rating, I feel good about him going into next season.

    Only draft a qb in round one if he’s truly a top shelf talent.

    So far I like Manziel but am unsure any others qualify.

  • SnBG

    LOLs, but no, Pryor just ran around to much and couldn/t complet many passes. He panicked to early while MM doesn’t
