With ‘injuries mounting’ Raiders add second defensive tackle

Сообщение laiyongcai92 09 ноя 2018, 11:19

Three players were lost to injury in the Raiders first preseason game. And three players were added today to replace them. The latest is recent former Broncos defensive tackle Clinton McDonald.The 31-year-old spent the offseason with the Broncos before being among the roster cuts a couple weeks ago. The 8-year NFL veteran came into the league as a 7th round pick by the Bengals when Paul Guenther was there. McDonald most recently spent four seasons with the Bucaneers. Prior to that he spent three years with the Seahawks.The 6-3 Oakland Raiders Hoodie , 297-pounder offers some inside pass rush. He has 19.0 sacks over his last five NFL seasons including 5.5 for the Seahawks in their 2013 Super Bowl run.“He played for Guenther in Cincinnati,” Gruden said of McDonald. “But he plays nose tackle for the Tampa Bay Bucs. Gerald McCoy was the three technique. When Gerald got hurt, McDonald played the three. So, he has the versatility to play the nose or the three.”McDonald joins fellow defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins as injury replacements as the team deals with injuries to Justin Ellis (foot) and rookie second round pick PJ Hall (ankle). And then there was the knee injury to long snapper Andrew DePaola.“I’ve had better days,” Gruden said of the injuries to Ellis, Hall Customized Oakland Raiders Jerseys , and DePaola.DePaola was sent to injured reserve with a torn ACL. He was replaced by long snapper Trent Sieg. While we await Ellis’s long term status, his replacement Johnathan Hankins already had a locker today. Gruden had said Hankins’ addition was a possibility “with the injuries that are mounting here.”Obviously you would expect McDonald’s experience with the Broncos this past season will help in facing them this week. Though Gruden downplayed how much of a help in that regard McDonald would be.The team has announced that Shilique Calhoun has been released which would make room for one of the new DT’s. That means either another player will need to be released or one of either Ellis or Hall sent to injured reserve.Follow @LeviDamienAfter another dismal performance Jon Gruden not sure Raiders backup QB is on the roster will ‘see who’s available’ One of the questions coming into the game for me was whether the Raiders have a worthy backup quarterback. That question may not have been answered tonight. “The battle for us is who’s behind Derek [Carr],” said Jon Gruden, who pulled his starting QB after just one drive. Coming in for Carr was Connor Cook. The third year pro was a pleasant surprise in the team’s first preseason game against the Lions, but since then he has looked absolutely dreadful.In this, the third preseason game www.raidersfootballauthentics.com , against backups, he played the rest of the first half following Carr’s quick departure. In that time, Cook went 6 for 15 for 72 yards with no touchdowns and an interception to give him a pathetic 27.6 passer rating. EJ Manuel would play the entire second half and he wouldn’t fare much better, going 8 for 12 for 87 yards and a(nother) fumble. This against mostly players who won’t be on the roster in a couple weeks.Whether Manuel and Cook are on the Raiders roster in a couple weeks is apparently still up in the air. When Gruden was asked if the backup quarterback is on this roster, he said “I don’t know.”“We’re going to continue to work, continue to see who’s available Oakland Raiders T-Shirt ,” Gruden said of the quarterback position, suggesting there is a pretty decent chance he will be taking a good hard look at the waiver wire. “I thought there were some good moments tonight and there were some moments tonight that weren’t good. . . we’re going to continue to evaluate it.”Up until recently, it seemed like they would just go with Cook and Manuel behind Carr, just as they did last season. Mainly because that’s who they’ve got. You just kind of assumed on would separate himself and be the primary backup. But that may not be the case anymore.Follow @LeviDamien
