Practice Report/Update – 10/20

From the Truman Sports Complex

Sunny skies, but cold temperatures and windy conditions greeted the Chiefs as they worked outside on Thursday in another practice of Raiders Week.

The early weather forecast for the East Bay on Sunday is clear skies and temperatures near 80 degrees. Working outside in Thursday’s conditions was not so much preparation for this game, but for others down the line as the weather turns colder. It was a full pads practice for the Chiefs, their seventh of the season or half of what the new labor agreement allows head coach Todd Haley to hold during the season.

Haley had 60 of the 61 players available to him taking part in the workout. The only player missing was practice squad FB/TE Shane Bannon, who suffered an ankle injury during Wednesday’s practice. During the window where practice is open to the media, all players appeared to be taking part in the work. FB Le’Ron McClain was wearing a yellow “do not touch” jersey during practice. McClain left the Indianapolis game in the second quarter with a neck injury and did not return. It’s not considered a problem for his participation on Sunday in Oakland.

The Raiders asked for and received a 24-hour extension on selling enough tickets to life the TV blackout in the Bay Area for this game. Reportedly, the team still had close to 3,000 seats available to watch the Chiefs and Raiders. Oakland has a sellout streak going of three games.

On the Raiders injury/practice report for Thursday was a carbon-copy of Wednesday with one addition – K Sebastian Janikowski joined the list with a left hamstring injury and was listed as limited in practice. Also limited were TE Richard Gordon (hand), S Michael Huff (ankle) and C Samson Satele (ribs). Not practicing were QB Jason Campbell (collarbone), RB Rock Cartwright (calf), CB Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), CB Chris Johnson (groin), LB Rolando McClain (ankle) and RB Marcel Reece (ankle). TE Brandon Myers (ribs) was a full participant in Thursday’s practice.

    Good to see Haley getting the pads out. Raiders are physical team and we need to get prepared for that. Hopefully Baldwin plays Sunday. Hopefully Haley just jerking media around by saying he dont know if Baldwin going to play Sunday.

    Looks like the Raiders are kinda banged up too. I know that injuries are all part of the game but their list looks like a long list. I kinda hope Carson plays on sunday. Haven’t seen him in action in a long time.
