ALAMEDA – With all the baseball news, there isn’t much room in the print edition. So I’m going to get all the news I can out now.
*First, the game against the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday is sold out and will be televised.
*Hiram Eugene will start at free safety. Stuart Schweigert will also see time.
*In case you weren’t clear, Josh McCown will start at quarterback and be backed up by JaMarcus Russell.
*Tim Dwight (hamstring) did not finish practice.
*LaMont Jordan spoke for the first time in a while. He said he doesn’t want to be a distraction, but is unhappy with his situation.
He also didn’t like that someone in the organization leaked to the media that he’d asked to be released, something he now deems “irrelevant” since he’s still a Raider.
Jordan can’t wait for the season to be over so he can have a fresh start. Whether it’s as a Raider or with another team, he doesn’t know.
Jordan said he couldn’t wait to get to the offseason to get his back 100 percent healthy, too. It’s bothered him since training camp and hasn’t been helped by long stints standing on the sidelines during games with his carries coming sporadically behind Justin Fargas.
“I know I say we've got another two weeks left and they can't get over fast enough, I'm not saying I'm giving up, that I'm not playing hard, so on and so forth,” Jordan said. “It's just the way the year has been going, you just want to hurry up and get it over with, get to the offseason and get a fresh start.”
