Oakland Raiders Wednesday Practice Report
Did not practice:
G Mike Brisiel (ankle/knee), LB Kaluka Maiava (ribs/calf), RB Darren McFadden (ankle), WR Denarius Moore (shoulder), RB Jeremy Stewart (ankle/knee), S Usama Young (neck)
S Tayvon Branch (ankle), LB Miles Burris (toe), DE Jason Hunter (foot), RB Rashad Jennings (concussion), T Menelik Watson (illness)
On the Jets side of this practice report we see Jeremy Kerley as a participant which bodes well for his return to the starting roster. Santonio Holmes continues practicing and will hopefully regain the burst Rex didn’t see last week against the Dolphins when he pulled Holmes off the field. Both of receivers are sorely missed in an offense that can barely move the ball forward, the newer receivers haven’t cut it and the healthy return of both these guys on the field would be much appreciated by whatever quarterback ends up taking the most snaps this next game.
For the Raiders there were a lot of key players not practicing including one of their guards, their most and wide receiver and two of their running backs. Time will tell how effectively these players will play, if they see game time at all, but this bodes well for an anemic Jets secondary that struggles in coverage. Rashad Jennings seems to be making a return and might take most of the reps in this game as he is currently getting the most practice time.
