Horse Tracks 9/26/09 - Stokley, Moreno questionable; Raiders try to kick Gannon out of their sandbox


DB - Week 3 - Fri: McDaniels - Broncos TV

DB - Knowing The Opposition - Chris Gentilviso
Robert Ayers is familiar with JaMarcus Russell and Darren McFadden from their college days, while Josh McDaniels knows Richard Seymour quite well. Ben Hamilton is probable for Sunday, while Brandon Stokley and Knowshon Moreno are questionable. Several WRs wore pajama pants for yesterday's practice.

DB - Reaching for High Expectations - Zach Eisendrath
Alphonso Smith says he "lobbied" to get a locker spot in between Champ and BDawk. Smith has impressed his older teammates despite being too short to play in the NFL, not rated as a first-rounder by several draft "experts," and basically being traded for the 5th-overall pick in the 2010 Draft, which is supposed to be the Greatest Draft In History (but that means we'd only want a top-5 pick, not say the 15th or 20th pick).
