Oakland Raiders Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-15


Oakland Raiders Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-15
The Raiders opened minicamp with players who started last season getting the nod based on the way they closed the season -- with a two-game winning streak. The lone exception was Darrius Heyward-Bey, who lined up as a starter so he could be "pushed."


That meant Mario Henderson, who took over from Kwame Harris last year, started over free-agent acquisition Khalif Barnes at left tackle. Chances are one or the other will be moved to the right side. Coach Tom Cable said he could wait to make a switch as late as into the preseason, although he said he may experiment with one or the other during organized team activities.

MEDICAL UPDATE: Tight end Zach Miller will be out probably through OTAs after sports hernia surgery but is expected back for training camp.

Guard Paul McQuistan, on injured reserve last season after ACL surgery, was limited to one practice a day.

Guard Robert Gallery missed three of five practices with a calf strain sustained during conditioning.

Wide receiver Javon Walker won't be on the field until training camp following knee surgery. He did not specify the nature of the surgery.

Linebacker Ricky Brown, a strong-side starter last year until he suffered a groin tear, was back on the field and playing in the middle following offseason surgery.

Fullback Oren O'Neal missed the minicamp but hopes to be ready for training camp. He tore all three knee ligaments last year but was seen running ropes and making hard cuts during the minicamp with the training staff.

Defensive end Derrick Burgess missed all five practices with what Cable called a "stomach virus."
