Raiders vs. Chargers: Injury Situation Paints Grim Picture

New, comments

Unless the Raiders get healthy fast it is hard to see them putting together a solid effort. 11 players missed Tuesday's practice. And almost all of them are starters.

What worries me the most about the injuries is that Khalif Barnes and Samson Satele both missed practice. If neither guy is able to go it is going to put some severe strain on the offensive line. My guess would be that Joe Barksdale played at left guard and Stephon Heyer at right tackle.

Bruce Campbell has never played left guard, and he seem to be buried on the depth chart. Barksdale has been filling in at left guard, and this lineup would give the Raiders at least a little sense of cohesion.

It is also a line that probably won't be blocking for Darren McFadden. He is still on crutches.

As for the other injuries. Richard Seymour, Chris Johnson, Chimdi Chekwa, Michael Huff, Sebastian Janikowski, DVD, Chinedum Ndukwe (how the hell do the Raiders have a players named Chimdi and Chinedum?) Mike Mitchell and Jason Campbell. Ugh.....
