Allen: 'This is not a sprint, this is a marathon'
The Raiders' head coach believes the offense needs to diversify its attack in Miami on Sunday.
And the Raiders need for wide receiver help grow more dire Tuesday Jacoby Ford underwent surgery on his injured foot and according to head coach Dallas Dennis Allen won't miss quote. A significant amount of time. The injury was originally sustained the last season then re aggravated. This pre season. This is not a sprint this is a marathon that was one of sixteen games we have fifteen more of them. The word guarantee didn't end. And we're trying to get better week. Looking at first year head coach never accounted for was losing his long snapper Jon Condo suffered a concussion against the Chargers. And that's be medically cleared before returning Allen said he did it Brett Travis gave -- added clearly. To be used in that role and now the team will have a backup plan in place for Miami that falls home. Job. Situations. We practiced travel Travis snapping the ball. But we -- probably done a better job to put him in more -- type situations and given an opportunity to do it under that kind of represented more what do you what do you see in a regular game. And with the short week lead this Sunday's matchup in Miami the Raiders offense may have made with a different game plan after heavily relying on Darren McFadden Monday night. The star running back had just 32 yards on the ground but finished with a career high thirteen catches for 86 yards. We're gonna have to use your actual good morning and keep -- them more fresh. He played a lot of snaps in the game. We felt like that gave us the best chance to win. Last night. And now won't continue to evaluate that situation as we go throughout the season but. We're gonna have to get some -- touches for some the other backs.
