The biggest concern involved Stokley and Moreno, who missed Friday’s practice and are both listed as questionable. Richard Seymour is a late addition to the Raiders’ report after not participating Friday, but is listed as Probable. Good to have Ben Hamilton back.
With Ben Hamilton missing practice, Russ Hochstein reportedly filled in at LG. Yes, I am worried… Stokley says he should be ready for Sunday, and is just taking it slow.
Again, the most important continuing development regarding the Raiders is the health of JaMarcus Russell. He is still healthy. Celebrate; this bodes well for us.
Champ Bailey found himself on this list last week, while Brian Dawkins has been listed each week as he recovers from the broken hand he suffered in training camp. Neither player are listed this week, which is good news. Le Kevin Smith is making his way back from injury, practicing finally. I wouldn’t worry about Stokley – I’m pretty sure I know the hit that caused him to sit out today’s practice with a thigh injury. It looked nasty, but Stokley jumped right up afterward. I’m guessing he got the day off due to the pain.
The Raiders have already listed two players as Out. Their #2 WR Chaz Schillens was possibly going to try to play Week 3; no luck yet. Nnamdi Asomugha, their best player, went through a full workout, so the Broncos can expect to face one of the best CBs in the NFL this Sunday.
