Kory Sheets hopes of making Raiders roster ends with Achilles injury

Kory Sheets hopes of making Raiders roster ends with Achilles injury

Raiders running back hopeful and reigning CFL Grey Cup MVP had hoped to finally make his first NFL team this year, but those hopes were dashed in an instant in the Raiders loss to the Packers Friday night. Sheets took a hard, blindside hit that laid him out on the turf and popped the ball loose. In the collision, his leg was twisted and he suffered a torn Achilles, the Raiders announced. Shortly afterward, Sheets himself announced his hopes for making the Raiders roster this season are over. A dream deferred....out for the year — Kory #1Time Sheets (@Sheets24K) August 23, 2014 Thank...

Maurice Jones-Drew shows support for Ferguson with "Hands up don't shoot" touchdown pose

In the first quarter of the Raiders preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday night, Raiders Maurice Jones-Drew had a nifty move to break free for a 40-yard touchdown run. After he scored that touchdown, he stopped, dropped the ball and put his hands up and his head down. To some that move seemed like perhaps just another touchdown dance, but it means a whole lot more. That is the "Hands up, don't shoot" pose protestors in Ferguson Missouri are doing after a police officer fatally shot unarmed teenager, Mike Brown, last week. The city of Ferguson, a suburb of St Louis, has...

Raiders vs Packers final score: Raiders knocked around in Green Bay

Raiders vs Packers final score: Raiders knocked around in Green Bay

Just as the Raiders had done in their first two preseason games against the Vikings and Lions, they gave up an easy touchdown on the opening drive. The big play came via connection between Aaron Rodgers to his Cal namesake Richard Rodgers. Then a few Eddie Lacy runs later and the Packers were in the endzone. They added insult to injury with a successful two-point conversion to go up 8-0. The drive was seven plays in just over three minutes. The Raiders offense got started well with two completions from Matt Schaub to James Jones. Then on third and two from the 40-yard line, Maurice...

Raiders-Packers Final Score: Rodgers, Tolzien Lead Green Bay to 31-21 Win

Raiders-Packers Final Score: Rodgers, Tolzien Lead Green Bay to 31-21 Win

The Packers' starting offense found the end zone on half of its six drives and the defense dominated after a one-play hiccup early as Green Bay defeated Oakland in the teams' third preseason game. The Green Bay Packers played their starters for most of the first half on Friday night against the Oakland Raiders, and the Aaron Rodgers-led offense scored three touchdowns to pace the Packers to a win by a score of 31-13. Rodgers finished 9-for-20 for 139 yards and two touchdowns, while Scott Tolzien was 8-for-11 for 107 yards and a second-half score. First Half The Packers received the ball and...

Raiders vs. Packers Halftime Score Update: Green Bay Leads 22-7

Green Bay leads Oakland 22-7 at the half. Here's a quick review of the happenings. It's been a fairly eventful first half for the Packers and Raiders. The starters for the Packers left midway through the second quarter, while the Raiders' offensive starters played the entire first half. The Packers marched down the field methodically on their first drive, mainly running the football. Eddie Lacy dove in for a short score. In what would be a recurring theme during the first half, Mike McCarthy elected to have the starters go for the two-point conversion, and Rodgers fired a bullet to Jordy...

Raiders Sio Moore taken off on stretcher with neck injury vs Packers

In the second quarter of the Raiders preseason game Friday night against the Packers, Sio Moore suffered a blow to the head. Packers full back came from the side to lay a block on a run play and hit Moore on the side of his helmet, knocking him to the ground. Moore laid on the turf in pain and did not get up. The training staff came out to attend to him and called for a stretcher. He was then taken off the field on a flat board, giving a thumbs up to the crowd, though he was wincing in pain along the way. The Raiders later said it is a neck injury that Moore suffered. That is not good news...

Raiders vs Packers first half open thread

The Raiders preseason match-up with the Packers is upon us at 5pm Pacific time (8pm Eastern) so let's get this thang going. Charles Woodson got a nice welcome from the crowd in Green Bay as you might expect. They love him as much there as fans in Oakland. After all, he did help them win a championship and win Defensive Player of the Year for them over seven seasons. Derek Carr is suited up but not expected to play. He suffered a rib injury last week and Steve Wyche said Dennis Allen told him Carr wouldn't play. He was warming up in uniform so once Schaub comes out of the game, we'll see who...

Raiders on the bubble vs Packers

Some positions and players at that position are pretty much settled. For instance, quarterback is set. It's Matt Schaub, Derek Carr, and Matt McGloin just as it has been most of the off-season. Most other positions are not so settled. Here are the players who will still be playing for a spot on this team tonight when the Raiders face the Packers. Running back Latavius Murray, Kory Sheets, Jeremy Stewart, George Atkinson III One of the better battles in camp. Murray has seemed to have the third running back spot locked up all camp, but Sheets and Stewart have also looked good at times. The...

What do you expect/hope to see tonight? I mean aside from some Raiders 56-0 victory pipe dream? This game will feature the most time for the starters and the last chance for many of these guys to hang on with the team. In most cases, the team has already made up their mind as to whether a player will make the team. But there are a few instances where they are still mulling it over and how those players perform...

Raiders vs Packers preseason 2014: What to watch for, storylines

As far as preseason games go, they don't get more important than the third one. It is the one preseason game that should most closely resemble what kind of team the Raiders will be fielding this season. They have a tough test heading to Green Bay to face the Packers and their high-powered offense. Here are a few things to watch out for in Friday's game. Schaub progression Over the first two preseason games, Matt Schaub has not looked great. The first preseason game, he couldn't get on the same page as his receivers (as much the receivers fault as his). The offense also couldn't manage a...

Report: Raiders Derek Carr to sit out preseason game vs Packers

Report: Raiders Derek Carr to sit out preseason game vs Packers

Raiders rookie quarterback, Derek Carr left the team's preseason game against the Lions last week clutching his ribs. Dennis Allen said afterward that Carr did have hurt ribs but was removed from the game due to a concussion. While he return to practice Monday, passing the concussion protocol, he was wearing padding on his midsection. His participation on the team's third preseason game in Green Bay was very much in question. Now NFL.com's Steve Wyche is reporting he was told by Dennis Allen that Carr will not play in the game. Matt Schaub will start the game, as he has all games up to...

Raiders vs. Packers, Preseason 2014: Game Time, TV Schedule, Online Streaming, and More

The Packers and Raiders have some connections, but the focus of Friday's preseason game is player evaluation. The Packers' preseason game on Friday night is a homecoming of sorts for a handful of people. Several players on the roster of the Packers' opponents, the Oakland Raiders, started their NFL careers with the Packers and will be returning for the first time as visitors. GM Reggie McKenzie worked for many years in the Green Bay front office. Oh, and there's Charles Woodson, who made his own homecoming to Oakland last year but is back in Green Bay in silver and black for the first time...

5 Questions with Acme Packing Company

5 Questions with Acme Packing Company

I recently conversed with Jason Hirschhorn, who you can follow on Twitter @JBHirschhorn, of fellow SB Nation site Acme Packing Company. We traded our 5 questions this week about the teams we cover, his team of course being the upcoming opponent Green Bay Packers. Here is what he had to say! 1) The Packers have ex-Raider QB Matt Flynn fighting for the back up job behind Aaron Rodgers, how is he doing in that battle?   Well, before he was an ex-Raiders quarterback, Matt Flynn put in four years of service as Aaron Rodgers' primary backup. Spending that much time in the Packers' offense...

Raiders vs. Packers Preseason Preview: Watching for Young Players to Emerge

Raiders vs. Packers Preseason Preview: Watching for Young Players to Emerge

Be sure to tip Javon Walker in the bathrooms. The Packers kick off their third preseason game of 2014 this Friday against a team that on paper, looks a lot like a fantasy football roster from 2009. There's Justin Tuck, Maurice Jones-Drew and former Packers great, Charles Woodson. Hell, there's even Matt Schaub, who, holy crap have you seen Matt Schaub lately? It's nice to know that even though the Raiders players barely resemble their former selves in terms of talent, Schaub is still keeping with his storied tradition of incredibly awkward photos. Way to keep it going, Matt. On the field,...
