Next Man Up! Raider WR - Derek Hagan

Will Derek Hagan play Sunday in Buffalo?  Hagan is the man who, along with Denarius Moore, gave us all a thrill during preseason and a boost of confidence in our WR corps.  Hue is on record (more than once) saying that "game performance" is the determinant for playing time. So, it seems likely that we'll get to see the man who caught more passes than any other Raider WR during the preseason.  Now Jacoby has a pulled hamstring and, when added to his beat-up hand, could use some time off to heal for the NYJets.

At Denver, despite Ford still suffering the effects of a recently broken hand, Hue chose to activate Jacoby over Derek Hagan who had a sore calf but was "full go". Consequently, Ford fumbled on the Raiders' first play from scrimmage and finished with 3 receptions for 22 yards (note: " - " caught 4 for 44 yards). 

Paul Gutierrez quotes Hue's reason for not playing Derek Hagan the Raiders' most productive preseason Wide Receiver: "He was down for a couple days, and when it's all said and done, I'm going to put healthy guys out there. That's just the way it is. I get to make that choice and that decision and that's what I decided to do." [Hue]
