CSNCalifornia.comWhile Raiders coach Hue Jackson gave an injury report, of sorts, following Thursday night's under-the-lights practice, with names and practice status, he would not divulge players' injured body parts."No, I don't do body parts," Jackson said at the time. "You know me better than that. I keep the body parts to myself."But he, or someone in the organization, had to give them up to the league. And the NFL does indeed give a listing. Following then, per, the Raiders' injury report as of Friday afternoon. Yes, with body parts.Did not participate: tight end Kevin Boss (knee), safety Mike Mitchell (knee), receiver Louis Murphy (groin).Limited participation: running back Taiwan Jones (foot), receiver Chaz Schilens (knee).Full participation: linebacker Darryl Blackstock (concussion), receiver Derek Hagan (calf), cornerback Chris Johnson (groin), cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke (ribs).So there you have it. Not exactly state secrets, or the Riddle of the Sphinx now, is it?Really, the only somewhat surprising injury is Blackstock's concussion, which must have been incurred on a brutal goal-line tackle in Seattle last Friday. And the fact that neither receiver Jacoby Ford, who broke his left hand on the first day of padded practice in camp, nor running back Darren McFadden, who suffered a fractured lower left eye orbital shortly thereafter, were on the report.The injured players' respective game status should be revealed after tonight's practice.
