Raiders dealing with injuries too

Recommended Posts

 

Although our Colts have some injury problems...  The Raiders are banged up as well.

Their O-line and LB positions are concern. 

 

Gabe Jackson will not be back this week as Raiders prepare to face Colts, figures to be on schedule to return next week

 

Quote

 

...“I don’t think he’ll practice,” Gruden said of Jackson’s status this week as the team prepares for the Colts... 

 

Over the first two games it was Denzelle Good who stepped in at right guard for Jackson, but with Good suffereing an ankle injury in practice Friday, it was Jordan Devey who moved over to right guard after having started the first two games at left guard. Should Good still not be full go, or if Gruden liked what Devey did at the spot better, he will start again this Sunday in Indianapolis.

Jon Gruden ‘concerned to say the least’ about injuries at linebacker, Raiders will bring in some this week

 

Quote

 

...Vontaze Burfict came into the game with nagging injuries to his shoulder and his knee. Then he suffered another injury to his elbow in the game, so he’s banged up to say the least. During the game, Maquel Lee suffered an ankle injury that could be more than just banged up. Nicholas Morrow also hurt his ankle. And suddenly the only two healthy linebackers the Raiders had were Tahir Whitehead and Kyle Wilber. It’s really no wonder the Vikings were gouging the Raiders defense on the ground the whole game.

 

“Yeah, you get worried when you have three of your linebacker come out of the game,” Gruden said. “Yeah, I’m concerned to say the least, but Mike Mayock and the staff are working hard to come up a contingency plan if we need to find a linebacker.”

 

The first step in that contingency plan will be bringing in some free agent linebackers for a workout, Gruden added. He noted that there is still a chance a couple of the banged up linebackers on the team will be able to play next Sunday in Indianapolis...

Raiders LBs was already a pretty weak group. Hopefully we can take advantage of that.

Would like to see a blowout  win.

Let’s just win. We can’t lose because that’s most likely means a two game losimg streak heading into the bye.

That isnt happening unless the chiefs just have a very weird game. That would be the upset of the season.

 We are catching them just the way we need them.
 Not playing well. 
 Their strength on D is Hankins and B Mayowa on D. A good matchup for us.
Incognito is killing it, the rest of their line in average at best. Another good matchup for us.

We get it. We really do. You think the Chiefs are unbeatable. Probably preferable if you don't bleat on about it in every thread though.....

    • Going into the season there were some that thought Pascal wouldn't make the roster. I had him as a #4, he is good enough to be a #3 IMO. 
    • That could be written about him now.   What i see, is that his negatives should be fixable.   I think JB can be successful.  I think now you have to gameplan and script well to help him.  And i feel , in time, he can improve the down the field stuff.     He protects the ball, so with a good D he could be “the guy.”   But is he “the guy” for the Colts.      I’m not gonna bash JB.  I respect what he has done.  I just hope Reich/Ballard ate realistic in what he can be and if that is enough.  I dont have the expertise to know.  Heck, its a guess for Reich and Ballard.   I do, however, support drafting a QB (hopefully one with promise, not back-up ceiling quality) to compete and possibly be the future.     JB was thrust into a terrible position 2 years ago and he never complained.  In fact, all he did was gain the respect and faith of coaches and teamates. Then, this year, he is thrust unexpectedly into following a “generational talent” that replaced a “goat” and once again, he handled it with class.  Now i agree i’d like to see more from him, but with the issues this tear its hard to tell whos to blame.  I’m not sure he’s the answer, bit i also think many QBs would have struggled here.  Look at how Brady is doing without receiver help.
    • So why the love from Parcells, Reich and Ballard? Must be his personal character and leadership they like so much. They never talked about Luck that way...that I know of.
    • I look at Pascal as a #3 but that is my opinion. Average, not great/not bad. 
    • Until you can prove otherwise, JB is taking us nowhere.
