4yOakland has not scored in the fourth quarter since a Sebastian Janikowski field goal on Oct. 9. Why the drought? The question was put to head coach and offensive playcaller Hue Jackson on Thursday.
4yThe promising rookie season of cornerback Chimdi Chekwa came to an end Thursday as the Raiders placed the fourth-round draft pick from Ohio State on IR with his balky hamstring.
4yThere were no sightings of either Darren McFadden or Jacoby Ford at the start of practice Thursday, giving further credence to the notion that neither player would be healthy enough to play Sunday at Minnesota.
4yEven though he was limited in practice due to an ankle sprain on , safety Michael Huff plans to be a go for the Vikings. "I ran a little bit at practice today, got some more reps, so I'll definitely be ready this week."
4yAdrian Peterson and Darren McFadden have been top rushers at every level they've competed. Now in the NFL, the Vikings' All-Pro back has a few reasons why he likes to watch McFadden run.
4yDarren McFadden still has not participated in practice since Oct. 23, but the Raiders' star rusher was on the field without his walking boot Wednesday, "huge progress" as seen by Hue Jackson.
4yMichael Bush is coming off a career game in San Diego, and the big Raiders running back is in a contract year. What type of salary might he command? Or, could the Raiders slap the franchise tag on him?
