Denarius Moore in a Walking Boot; Injuries Piling Up for Raiders

The injuries keep coming. Today the Raiders unveiled a fresh, new batch of injuries as the list of walking wounded keeps growing in the East Bay.

Making a surprise first appearance among the injured was standout rookie Denarius Moore who watched practice wearing a walking boot. No official word yet on what exactly is ailing Moore.

Either Hue Jackson is being extra cautious or his team has some serious concerns.

Jacoby Ford is still nursing his foot injury. If both Ford and Moore are unable to go Sunday then it will be up to the good old combo of Louis Murphy and Chaz Schilens to keep the vertical game alive as Darrius Heyward-Bey has still not been cleared to practice. The good news is that DHB is no longer wearing a neck brace.

Should the Raiders need to grab a receiver off the scrap heap they could always reach out to Nick Miller who is no longer with the St. Louis Rams. Derek Hagan was just signed by the Bills so you can forget about a reunion there.

The Darren McFadden watch continues. At this rate it would be shocking to see him anytime soon. This foot injury is clearly much worse than anticipated. To make matters worse Taiwan Jones was also held out of practice with a hamstring issue.

Looks like it is time for Coach Jackson to revise his mantra: From here out he’ll have to say “next men up.”
