Raiders MLB Nick Roach back on field

Middle linebacker Nick Roach was on the field Wednesday for the first time since leaving the Green Bay game with a concussion on Aug. 22

Although cornerback Chimdi Chekwa remains out with a knee injury _ he was working with the athletic training staff _ the Raiders look as if they’ll go in to the regular season opener Sunday against the New York Jets in good health.

Coach Dennis Allen and coordinators Greg Olson and Jason Tarver will address the media following practice.

    Win #1 will be sweet, but Win #10 will be sweeter … playoffs!

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    get your tums ready..

  • Guest123

    nope but it was early in the season. we crushed Seattle that year 33-3 later on. HueJax had our offense firing all cylinders

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    false. DA declared Barnes the starter at RT over Watson like 3 days ago and Menelik isn’t on the injury report

  • Guest123

    sometime next year? J/K

    People are such idiots

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    yeah, January

  • Breaking_Black

    They should let Hayden light the flame in week 2.

  • Theghostronin79

    Yeah, Jano tied the record for longest FG.

  • DJ Johnny

    I’m sorry 2011. Game 1 win at Mile High 23-20.

    The place will go nuts!

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    i vote for JaMarcus. he’d be roasting marshmellows over it

  • http://thebadtenants.com/ eternal pessimist

    did he? I recall reading that he’s only starting there because of Watson’s hip flexor… I think he’s starter when he comes back? or am I wrong on that?

  • 24

    He’d be heatin up some purple drank

  • BigBenRexor

    The Human Torch igniting the Memorial Torch?

  • Breaking_Black

    That would be great if he just stayed up there and cooked the whole game.

  • RediaR

    The depth chart still backs you up also.

  • DJ Johnny

    I had the wrong yr. 2011. 23-20.

  • 24

    Can’t…he’s Captain America now =P

    “Allen said Jackson is playing with the first team at left guard and Khalif Barnes is at right tackle ahead of Menelik Watson as the Raiders prepare to face the Jets” – Jerry 9/1/14

    or pieces

  • Breaking_Black

    As long as Riley Cooper isn’t around he shouldn’t get burnt.

  • Dan78

    I nominate Rich Gannon, Howie Long, and Tim Brown to light the flame this season….

  • Dakota

    Sweet! Roach back. Sio back. NO EXCUSES FOR THE COACHING STAFF!

  • 24

    I’m looking forward to Woodley doin some QB killin

  • Breaking_Black

    Those would all be great.

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    Michael Sam should lite the flame after all he is the most experienced flamer in the league.

  • 24

    Ausberry should be the guy in the slot…use him like Jimmy Graham.

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    he’s not a Raider, nor will he ever be

  • R8erEduc8er

    From what I remember, DA said Watson didn’t start the Seahawks game because he was dealing with his hip flexor. But when asked who was starting week 1 at RT, he said Barnes and didn’t elaborate on why. So who knows. I think Watson starts sooner than later.

  • Breaking_Black

    In our dreams right..

  • http://thebadtenants.com/ eternal pessimist

    I would think so!

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    It was more of a Flame Flamer joke….

  • DJ Johnny

    Sio back too? I must’ve missed that. Awesome.

  • BigBenRexor

    I nominate John Herrera ignite the press box with a Flame Thrower

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    I guess DA lied again?

  • Davy Jones

    If he excels for the Cowboys against expectations, make him a Raider.

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    That would rule especially if Tim Kawakami was in it!!!

  • DJ Johnny

    They should welcome Gannon back into the family. Mend the rift and move on. Let him help out.

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    why? we’re not short on DE’s or OLB’s … we need secondary help

  • Dan78

    He’s enjoying a bowl of watercress soup…. Pinky up of course……

  • R8erEduc8er

    RM will light it week 2 with a post-breakfast fart.

  • Dakota

    Hearing that Barnes is starting is almost as depressing as the news was a couple of years ago when we re-hired Knapp.

    SMMFH

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    How about instead of lighting the flame have Herrera torch Tim Kawakami on the 3rd level?

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    LOL!

  • Dakota

    SMOKE POTTERS!

  • DJ Johnny

    The rookie QB excuse won’t work if we lose this year…since it was DA’s decision to start him over the healthy vet Schaub.

    I hope DA comes through.

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    I know! Didn’t we have 6 Tackles on the roster at one point and none of them can beat that slug out of a job?

  • 24

    Mr. False Start

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    And WR help and a LT and a RT…..
