Porter active, Jenkins is not

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, December 29th, 2013 at 11:59 am in Oakland Raiders.

Cornerback Tracy Porter (hip flexor) is well enough to play against Denver Sunday, but starter Mike Jenkins (hamstring) is inactive.

That leaves Chimdi Chekwa as the starter alongside Porter, with Chance Casey possibly playing in the nickel against the NFL’s most dynamic passing offense.

Other inactives for the Raiders included defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin, tackle Menelik Watson, wide receiver Jacoby Ford, wide receiver Brice Butler and guards Lamar Mady and Andre Gurode.

    7th at worst with Minnesota upset over Detroit.
    Their record 5-10-1.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    It would really svck, but that would leave no doubt that shrek and DA are tied at the hip. They wouldnt survive a third losing season…but it would be a wasted year…again.

  • Lefty12

    FO

  • aig-raiders

    ssshhhhh…..dont let the lynch mob franchise QB know that the QB can’t play defense.

  • Dakota

    Just pick the best WR or DE on the board in round one and take a QB later in the draft. We can’t afford to “Ponder/Locker/Gabbert” this pick.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    Don’t get mad….c’mon least oak, DA will wipe your tears…

  • Breaking_Black

    Earlier in the year, Tomlin was a couple of DA supporters’ go to example on a good coach needing talent.

    No, the steelers aren’t 11 game winners this year but Tomlin has his team playing for something other than his job today.

    Where did you read this?

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    So, if we lose today, will it also be the “greatest day of your life?” Or is that reserved for when our QB is caucasian?

  • rifflicks

    They better draft a QB in the 1st round too ….their QB is Terrible.

  • aig-raiders

    Can they resist the home state favorite Johnny Football?

  • Al_is_theraiders

    That’s a good one!

  • RaidingTexas

    Right, but I’m only talking about the offensive side of the ball. The offense is just good enough with an at-times inaccurate Dalton, but WRs that jump up to make the play.

  • marks hair

    going before we pick

  • RaiderDirt

    Hey nation, Josh McDaniels or Lovie Smith??

  • rifflicks

    Flacco….3 INT’s in one game…..They better draft a QB in the 1st round too.

  • RaidingTexas

    To who?

  • Al_is_theraiders

    Mcdaniels is a hell no.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Smith in a heartbeat. Luring him here would be the problem.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Totally hear that since it’s already 9:21 pm here!

  • 0ak R8rs

    I’m assuming he means because we will be picking 6th or 7th and Manziel will be gone by then. Not because he said he’s stayin or anything. Thank god, no Manziel.

  • Lefty12

    Do the Raiders have even one iota of the talent He has in Pitt?

  • aig-raiders

    That dude had one good playoff run and cashed in big time. They dont have a run game this year or a top 5 D to bail them out. The NFL will always be about the D and run game.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Anyone but us, hopefully.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Trade up, lol

  • aig-raiders

    Agreed. Dalton is even that good because he still throws too many picks for a game manager. If you want a solid but not spectacular QB than you better have a ground game.

  • SaintKaufman

    F U! Now, for the Raider fans, it’s game time!!

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    We’re suposed to lose.
    Fik that!
    Make some noise in that Coliseum!
    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 0ak R8rs

    Rex Ryan NOT fired.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    Look at all that orange in Oakland, fvck you Reggie.

  • LB32

    Flaco wasn’t worth the extension when they signed him to it.

  • rudegruden

    Just for once, try to use common sense.

  • r8ter4evr

    No more Donkey rejects!!!!

  • Breaking_Black

    I’m just saying earlier in the year people were saying the steelers lost a ton of talent so the steelers sucked and Tomlin couldn’t do anything about it. But, here we are..

  • aig-raiders

    In a must win game too…let’s just say he got hot for one playoff series and cashed in. Overrated!!!!

  • Morilla_00

    Well, here comes the pain.

  • RaidingTexas

    Let’s wait and see how he fares against a real college football program. That American whatever conference is a joke.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Ugh.

  • Breaking_Black

    My point has consistently been that DA is a loser and I have yet to be proved wrong.

  • Twinkle

    So they get one more game and a worse draft pick…..not like they’ve won a Lombardy or anything….you should try living with the whiner fans.Say one thing for the bolt fans though……they don’t bail when they suck all 208 of em gut it out not like the idiots across the bay here….there’s thousands of em driving around with their ugly flags sticking out the windows of their cars when they go 12-4 but when they go 4-12 you start seeing those ugly half Raider half Whiner Uni’s showing up at the O.co and God help us if we go 12-4….can’t get a ticket anywhere.Miss the old OB myself…lived there for a while.

  • VanHeathen30

    Mark should open ticket outlets in the AFC West cities…Hell sell em vacation packages while he’s at it.

  • RTF916

    Come on, Raiders. If nothing else, just win this one. Make Manning have a bad day. Ruin his little record bids. Knock them to the second seed. People are watching this game just to see Manning have a career game. Put him down and put the pouty face on him.

  • funnyfalcon

    No mistake. Third tackle in a formation better be able to block.

  • aig-raiders

    If you want to win with a serviceable QB, then he better not be throwing picks. Dalton is not that guy.

  • Breaking_Black

    The Raiders are 1-15 when opponent scores first under Dennis Allen.

  • Raider 8

    guys were saying how palmer is just a born loser etc. well maybe that’s what dennis
    allen is
    .some are winners some just find ways to lose.
    he lost at least 5 games that were very winnable.
    if u guys wanna buy that our defense just tired out…go ahead. have fun w that, but youre fooling yourselves.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    Manning is going to set two nfl records vs DAs limp defense….

  • SnBG

    Let the misery begin. Later nation.

  • TrevJo

    Here we are, the Steelers are 8-8 with far more talent than we have (but far less talent than they are used to)

  • LB32

    Let’s go TO. What have you learned, show us now!?
