Updates on Raiders injuries

Wide receiver Jacoby Ford #12 of the Oakland Raiders walks the sidelines during the NFL preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium

The media spoke with Raiders head coach Dennis Allen via conference call today. He gave an update on many of the Raiders current injuries. Here is some of what he had to say:

What about the injuries to the receivers?

"Obviously it looks like Jacoby's gonna miss a little bit of time. Don't exactly to what extent yet, we're still seeing where he's at. But we did an MRI on his and we'll see where he's at. Denarius is getting closer. I don't know how close he is yet but he's obviously getting close."

Is Darrius Heyward-Bey's shoulder injury serious?

"It was not serious. He's a little sore today so we're gonna monitor him as we go through practice this week and see how much he's able to do."

Is this the same left foot injury Jacoby Ford had last season?

"Yes."

Is it more of a concern because of the previous injury?

"The reports don't seem to indicate that there's anything significant to it."

Will Denarius Moore miss time just in preaseason or will it spill into the regular season?

"I don't know the answer to that. If you ask me if there's a chance, yeah, there's a chance. But we still gotta look at it and see what kind of timeframe we're looking at."

Do you have any updates on the injuries to Mike Goodson or Matt Leinart?

"Both of them are gonna be ok. Goodson just had some weakness in his shoulders but we looked at him today and he feels good and looks good. We did some tests on him to make sure it wasn't anything related to the neck injury and everything looks fine so that wasn't a big issue. Matt really just had a pretty good little cut on his right index finger of his right hand and he's gonna be fine too."

If Stefen Wisniewski is back practicing this week, will he play versus Lions?

"If he's able to go, we would play him."

Do you expect Taiwan Jones and Brandon Myers back this week?

"I'm hoping to have both of them back this week."

Any news on Aaron Curry?

"He's back. He worked out today through a running program and looked pretty good so we'll take a look at him tomorrow and see where he's at and evaluate him as we go along."
