    Apparently, DB Chris Johnson's replacement, Chimdi Chekwa, is also injured and the Raiders may be starting DB Joe Porter opposite Stanford Routt. Not good news for the Raiders, as it gives the Texans a viable option to running the ball; pick on the weak-link DB.

    Sunny Beaches, damn the luck.

    Seriously though, I was looking forward to seeing him play. I drafted him in our mock draft last off season and think he's going to be a really good CB, and one that won't take 'years' to develop.

    What's his injury?

    He shows up in the injury report as having limited participation in practice (hamstring).

    Stanford Routt by the way is an old Houston Cougar.

    Attractive older woman seeking younger man from my hometown? Plays DB for the Raiders? Huh.

    I'm well aware of that, just like Kevin Kolb.

    Told by Raiders beat reporter: At this point, Stanford Routt and Joe Porter are the likely starters, with rookie DeMarcus Van Dyke getting some playing time.

    They do not think Chekwa will play. He was on a bicycle today with hamstring wrapped.

    I think Corky (S. Corkran) was the one who said something about it, which is how it got around to me. The FIB board is a wealth of Raider information. Maybe you've met Blitzchick, she's a Raider fan with a press pass. Then there is OreRaider who runs Raidernews.com, which I understand is used as a home page on many a computer at the Raiders' front offices.

    What was that Raiders forum that folks came over from last season? There were actually a bunch of cool folks there.

    edit: I found it... Raider Outlawz

    Da Raidahs still have a pretty ferocious passrush, so let's see some chickens hatch before we start counting. I agree that this IS good news.

    I read something this morning confirming the Raiders #2 and #3 CBs our out for this week's game, along with their #1 and #2 FBs. So, practice squaders Joe Porter and Tonga have to step up. Although, Michael Huff is supposed to be back this week from his concussion, so maybe he is moved over to the corner spot. Who knows?

    Yep, Murphy is supposed to be out this week also, but back next week. As far as I know, DHB is fine and should play along with Ford (fast), Schilens (oft injured but good), Moore (rookie phenom) and Hagan (3rd down guy).

    I think their pass-rush is on par with the Saints... nothing we haven't seen so far.

    Michael Huff don't want no part of Foster or Ward, we saw that last year. He damn sure wouldn't want any part of Tate.

    You better hope they put him on Corner.

    I will be at tomorrow's game. I'll be in Section 135 (endzone) rooting for the Raiders and honoring Al Davis.
