Charlie Frye Likely Out For Season

His wrist injury will likely put him on injured reserve for 4-5 months.

The Raiders placed backup quarterback Charlie Frye on the injured-reserve list once they learned he is going to need four or five months to rehabilitate his right wrist.

Frye suffered ligament damage in his wrist while bracing himself as he fell during a drill Aug. 5. He underwent surgery Wednesday and is out for the rest of the season.

“I don’t know enough about it to give you details,” Raiders coach Tom Cable said. “It’s a ligament (injury) in the wrist that is very rare.”

This could mean very good things for Kyle Boller, who is battling for that third string spot.

Frye’s misfortune is Kyle Boller’s good fortune. Boller was signed as a free agent in June as an extra quarterback to take reps in camp. Now he’s in line to make the 53-man roster.

“He’s getting a new start, and he’s making the most of it, certainly,” Cable said

Darren McFadden To Miss Thursday Exhibition Game Due To Hamstring Injury

Oakland Raiders runningback Darren McFadden will miss Thursday night’s exhibition game in Dallas due to a hamstring injury according to the Associated Press.

“It’s very frustrating,” McFadden said Tuesday. “I feel like I’ve been having a good camp. It happened. It’s just something you have to deal with right now.”

McFadden hurt his hamstring in practice Saturday morning when he tried to accelerate after slowing down. He immediately felt tightness so he pulled up to make sure the injury didn’t get any worse.

McFadden said he wants to make sure he waits until the hamstring is completely healed before returning to the field so he doesn’t have to deal with this throughout the entire season.

Raiders Training Camp: Jacoby Ford Sticking Out at WR

Raiders training camp has seen Chaz Schilens and Louis Murphy both go down with injuries. Murphy remains out with a concussion, while Schilens is finally getting back to practice after experiencing soreness in his surgically repaired left foot.

In the meantime, rookie receiver Jacoby Ford is apparently impressing folks in his extended practice time. Nobody likes injuries, but sometimes the team can benefit from limited injuries:

“We’re enthused,” coach Tom Cable said Monday. “He’s learning to play fast, and when you get that kind of speed and he’s able to use it in routes and use it on his release, it really shows what he’s capable of. He certainly catches the ball well.”

Raiders Training Camp: The battle for the #2/#3 cornerback position

The Raiders have gotten into the groove of practice and have a bit of a position battle developing. While Nnamdi Asomugha is not losing his starting CB job anytime soon, #2 corner Chris Johnson apparently finds himself in a battle with Stanford Routt.

Coach Cable indicated it was turning into a heated battle, although apparently nobody told Johnson:

“No,” he said, “I came into camp as a starter, and I am going to leave as a starter. I never look behind me. If a person looks behind, then he is going to fall behind. So I always look forward and try everyday to improve my game. I don’t ever worry about the next man.”

I’d imagine the Raiders would like to get a little bit younger, although Routt isn’t all that much younger than Johnson. The Chronicle article mentioned that this developed last year as well, but Johnson held on to his spot in the end.

Raiders Training Camp: Louis Murphy Out With A Concussion

The Raiders first weekend of training camp got off to a bit of an inauspicious start as WR Louis Murphy apparently received what he says is the first concussion of his career. He was kneed in the head by Nnamdi Asomugha on Friday and has been experiencing concussion symptoms since then.

In the meantime, the kind folks at CSN Bay Area have put together daily updates on the Raiders training camp practices:
