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.”
