The Raiders had their eighth day of camp today. Here are some notes. My information comes from Raiders beat writers via Twitter and can be found on Twitter as @LeviDamien @ChrisMcClain @CorkOnTheNfl (Steve Corkran) @VicTafur @AsherMatthews @ChrisHansenNFL. I will be compiling all of their information throughout training camp. For all Raiders updates follow the writers above and Me at @sethmurphy4991.
The silver jersey competition I was telling you about yesterday, was won by the defense who are sporting them.
Jacoby Ford is back today, his injury was never disclosed.
Nix and Ross among those unaccounted for
Lots of drops again today
Watson still not at practice
Lamarr Houston Vance Walker and Conner Vernon join those not practicing today. Without Walker Raiders are extremely thin at DT. 5 of 7 were injured
Terrelle Pryor with a beautiful 60 yard pass on the money to Brice Butler. You won’t see Flynn make that pass ever. He’s having a great day good zip and accuracy
Alex Barron getting reps at first team LT. Don’t worry he isn’t taking Veldheer’s job it’s just good to have a plan in case of different injuries.
Jared Veldheer actually being held out for injury to the forearm but the MRI was negative, which is a positive.
After hearing from OC Greg Olsen I would be extremely surprised if Terrelle Pryor didn’t run some pistol this year.
That is all for today folks
