Hopefully...Zimmer sure as heck won't tell us. :lol:

Maybe he will. "He's fine."

Any word on Hughes?

Also, looked like Boone tweaked something near the end of last weeks game. Haven't heard anything so I hope he's alright.

This is from yesterday but I think Hughes is back.
@christomasson (Chris Tomasson):

Adam Thielen hurt his apparent left lower leg/ankle in practice limped off Hughes back Out Beebe Coley King Andrews Downs Alexander Tocho Sherels Matthews
It would have been nice if he used some punctuation. I also don't know what it means to hurt your apparent left lower leg.

Already suspended 4 games, I think the last nail was in the coffin. But now it's welded shut.
@GoesslingStrib (Ben Goessling):

Vikings WR Cayleb Jones is in Dakota County jail on probable cause of felony theft and misdemeanor domestic assault. He was arrested at 4:15 yesterday afternoon, and was scheduled for his first court appearance at noon today.

Report is Jet McKinnon went down in practice today with some kind of knee/leg injury. Some tweets making it sound like it's more than just a tweak.

No official word yet I think but most beat writers claim that their sources say torn ACL and that Jet is done for the season.
Major bummer. Would've been interesting to see what he could have done with 49ers

I mean most of those guys are our "new vets" with B-Rob and Newman gone. But nobody from the defensive backfield?? How is Harry not a captain. Is this Zim's way of keeping Barr on his good side given he hasnt gotten an extension. Because Harry deserves to be a captain WAY more than Barr does IMO. He's been the #1 safety in the league for a long time, is a pro's pro, great off the field, leader of the defense if you ask me. I guess I just dont understand that one. Harry got snubbed there.

Man Bryzinski is a legit cap guru. I find it funny how all these analysts say the Raiders couldnt "afford" Mack. We paid our QB $84 guaranteed and just gave monster contracts to a bunch of our stud players. And we still have $10 mill in cap space. Who are the Raiders paying? Some offensive lineman and Carr? Come on. I will say, Gruden wont make it 5 years in Oakland. He's already crumbling them down to the toilet again

Letting the best defensive player go from a bad defense has not improved his position with the fan base. The offense had better deliver this year or I suspect he'll regret leaving the Announcer's booth.
