Hayden, Burnett among those unable to practice today

Cornerback DJ Hayden and linebacker Kevin Burnett were among the players unable to practice for the Raiders on Monday, though coach Dennis Allen managed to get all 90 of his players to attend the voluntary session.
Hayden and Burnett are nursing ankle injuries, Allen said. Both were on the field Monday, but neither participated in any of the full-team drills. Hayden’s right foot is in a protective boot.
Second-year running back Latavius Murray, guard Lucas Nix and defensive lineman Anthony Smith were the only other players unable to practice.
Burnett is a returning starter and a well-experienced veteran, so his absence from practice isn’t viewed as a big concern.
Hayden, however, is competing for a starting spot this season for the first time, so he can’t afford to miss much time.
Hayden missed almost all of the offseason workouts last season, and he was limited for part of training camp, while he recovered from a surgery to repair a ruptured vein that he suffered in his final collegiate season.
Hayden talked last week about how much stronger he feels and how his confidence is much higher this year as a result of being healthy enough to practice on a regular basis.
Allen said Hayden rolled his ankle during practice last week. The injury doesn’t appear serious enough to keep Hayden out of practice for very long.

    The Raiders are keeping their offensive line secret in the OTAs in order to…..

    avoid injury?

  • marks hair

    irritate the fans

  • SilverandBlack666

    That’s it? No logical response or a quick witted retort just a limp jab “someone who knows nothing” WOW you are impressive!

  • nolimits3333

    Huh?

  • BigBenRexor

    It could be that DA is very over protective of DJ. Remember last year when they hired a private counselor to help Hayden mentally recover from the Eagles game? Plus a day that Hayden cannot practice, they implement stronger policy against Bullying, coincidence? The Locker room is also being bubble wrapped along all sharp corners.

    Nice.

    So…..injuries happen to people who get injuries? But not to people who don’t?

  • nolimits3333

    Reggie doesn’t get embarrassed. Thus, Greg Knapp and Dennis Allen.

    read it again you’ll figure it out

    Contact means little. Truth is, these guys all play at the outer limits(or beyond) of size, speed, physicality,athleticism etc.and put way more strain on feet, ankles,knees, and stuff than the human body was made for. DB’s and ankles in particular.

  • TrevJo

    McFadden has nothing to do with this

    You said “now Reggie is paying”
    Reggie is not paying now. Unless you think your barbs are hurting him.

    I am not holding my breath that Hayden is healthy for 16 games, but I’m also not assuming he won’t. Hayden is on track to be a bust but there is plenty of time and opportunity for him to redeem himself and Reggie. 1 day of missed practice due to an ankle injury is not something to break out the lynch mob for.

    Flashing news!!!
    Some so-called Raider fans have a severe case of twisted panties and are expected to be off the streets and whining in a blog for an extended period of time….
    Detailed posts to follow after the men have finished practice.

    Watch the tape against UCLA and you can see why he was a first rd pick. If he stays healthy I think he will be a solid cb. But that is a big “if” as of right now.

    Matt Schaub not mobile in the
    classic sense, but does a nice job sliding and shifting his feet,
    drawing in defenders, then hitting open man.

    Should be a good thing, especially since it is in Oxnard and thus the media restrictions should be lifted.

    McFadden “Injured every year”

    Jacoby Ford “Injured every year”

    Chaz Schilens “Injured every year”

    DJ Hayden about to be put in that category is all we are saying. No one is getting twisted about it just pointing out the facts.

    Not at all. That was one of the things he excelled at in Houston.
