RAIDERS REELING FROM INJURIES
The Raiders welcomed back wide receiver Jacoby Ford from a hamstring injury after a two-week absence and safety Mike Mitchell, who missed most of the past two months with a knee injury.
However, they are far from healthy, as evidenced by Jackson taking quite awhile to read off the injury report at the start of his post-practice news conference.
“Injury report. One for the ages for me:
Ford, hamstring, limited
Murphy, groin, (did not participate)
Mcfadden, groin, full
Reese, ankle, DNP
Campbell, heel, limited
Brown, concussion, DNP
Groves, quad contusion, full
Shaughnessy, shoulder DNP
Boyd, knee, full
Chekwa, hamstring, limited
Guardano , shoulder, full
Huff, concussion, ankle, body, everything, limited
Johnson, hamstring, DNP
Mitchell, knee, limited
Van Dyke, knee, full.”
It’s difficult to gauge which of those players will be available for the Patriots on Sunday. Jackson said he won’t rule out using Mitchell, even though Mitchell will get in only three practices and hasn’t played in a game of any kind this season.
“He is one of the toughest competitors I have ever been around,” Jackson said. “I know he likes to play football. It was great to see that 34 out there running around and making plays. But we’ll be smart. We’ll see where he is. We just have to monitor it as we go along this week.”
