Practice Report/Update – 10/21

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs final practice of 2011 Raiders Week I went down Friday morning with head coach Todd Haley putting his team through a 90-minute workout.

In the team stretching period they were a lively and vocal bunch, with many players taking a hand at doing their imitation of ESPN’s Chris Berman saying “the RAIDERS…”

The starting lineup change on defense that went down in Indianapolis looks like it remains in effect, as Andy Studebaker was working with the starters in the base defense. Against the Colts, Studebaker moved into the opening lineup, with rookie Justin Houston stepping into the sub-defense as a pass rusher opposite Tamba Hali.

Only practice squad FB/TE Shane Bannon was missing from the practice field on Friday. He missed Thursday’s session as well, due to an ankle injury.

The Chiefs injury report to the league will list RB Jackie Battle and FB Le’Ron McClain as probable for Sunday’s game. Both participated in Friday’s practice.

On the Raiders report, QB Jason Campbell (collarbone) and CB Chris Johnson (groin) are out of Sunday’s game. Listed as questionable are RB Rock Cartwright (calf), CB Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), LB Rolando McClain (ankle), FB Marcel Reece (ankle), S Michael Huff (ankle), K Sebastian Janikowski (hamstring), WR Chaz Schilens (groin) and DT Richard Seymour (knee).

Janikowski and Seymour are big additions to the list. If either one is out, that’s a huge edge for the Chiefs.

Listed as probable were TE Richard Gordon (hand), C Samson Satele (ribs) and TE Brandon Myers (ribs).

The Raiders also announced Friday that they had sold enough tickets to lift the local TV blackout. That’s four games in a row that Bay Area fans have gotten the chance to watch the silver and black.

    ONly makes sense to put Houston in passiing situations much like Denver is using Von Miller and 49ers using Aldon Smith. I expect Houston to get that 1st sack this game with all the focus on Hali. He was close twice against the Colts I expect him breakthrough this game.
