Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub misses practice again

Quarterback Matt Schaub missed his second day of practice Monday, watching in a ball cap as the Raiders finished warm-ups and drills during the portion open to the media.

Coach Dennis Allen said Sunday Schaub had some elbow soreness.

Allen and Schaub are both scheduled to speak with the media following practice.

Players who were not practicing included linebacker Sio Moore (neck), linebacker Nick Roach (concussion), tackle Menelik Watson (hip flexor), cornerback Chimdi Chekwa (knee), tight end David Ausberry (knee) and cornerback Taiwan Jones (not disclosed).

Ausberry was working on a separate field along with cornerback DJ Hayden and Jones.

The Raiders must trip eight players from the roster by Tuesday at 1 p.m. Hayden and guard Lucas Nix are eligible to be placed on the physically unable to perform list at that time and then wouldn’t count toward the roster.

Two more players _ running back Kory Sheets (Achilles) and tight end Nick Kasa (torn ACL) are eligible to be placed on injured reserve and also wouldn’t count.

    Went over this a couple days ago. Look a the 4:50 mark

    This is what was happening to him in college.

    Get him off the line.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Vittorio, I believe.

    You got me a few times.

  • Dakota

    Victor might know the raiders too.

    Winning = getting paid the most to pad their egos with a perceived worth relative to their peers.

    Not all cases, but the majority for sure.

    I agree, I didn’t like what i saw with his hand in the ground. i think he’s better coming off them disguised blitzes

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    True actually. Oneof his better tricks.

    All I know is the d line is gonna be awesome and hopefully All our linebackers are gonna be Nice again. The back end of this defense is the question mark. We are gonna find out alot if Carr plays with first team on game 4 of preseason. Im not the type to make a big deal of preseason but it is true the energy is different when carr gets in there. We still so badly need a TE

    They are just getting him reps as a DE. Why would they already show how they plan to use him. Preseason is very vanilla. Teams don’t show to much. It’s a glorified practice.

  • BigBenRexor

    1) they are so desperate to see something themselves
    2) when has this staff ever shown anything else?

  • Blackholepriest

    You’re wrong dude many FA’s came here.

    Just since 2003-4 is when it started to decline. Up to then we got our share. When we hired Shell and lost all thos games we started losing momentum in FA. That’s when he had to start overpaying.

  • SlvrnBlck478

    Exactly my point. Rm inherited this problem, he didn’t cause it. Randy Moss didn’t want to be here, he forced us to trade him. Nmandi would never commit longterm, and bolted when things stayed the same.

  • SlvrnBlck478

    Remember this is just preseason. I guarantee they won’t be lining him up as a DE most of the time. Just getting him used to playing with his hand in the ground. He rarely did that in college.

  • Raider O

    I know, that’s why it was so funny.

  • wildsach

    If we dont go .500 and DA is still here, I’m outta here.

  • kuhlest

    yeah but look at him at the 5:15 mark and the 6:01 mark…dude blew up the run plays for a loss….1st one vs RT and 2nd vs TE….you win some and lose some…

  • kuhlest

    how do you figure, it was his most productive game?

  • kuhlest

    of course they will….he is our Von Miller……..come on guys, he will spend 40-50% of his snaps on the line

  • kuhlest

    problems with schaub are;
    -slow release
    -no fast ball
    -stares down target
    -no escapability
    -pocket presence

  • kuhlest

    how is Butler not one of our top 2-3 WRs on depth chart? all he does is catch the ball…..

  • kuhlest

    that was a beautiful throw and catch at 3:05 mark…..again Butler needs to start or see significant time

  • kuhlest

    my bad that was holmes
