Raiders and Broncos notes
Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson
Jeff Garcia is missing more camp time. Garcia just hasn’t gotten enough work to make a strong preseason push at JaMarcus Russell’s job. That’s a good thing for the Raiders. Russell needs to be the guy and he needs as much practice time as possible.
Plus, Garcia is a professional. If Russell struggles during the season, he’ll be ready to go if needed.
Raiders coach Tom Cable hinted that running back Darren McFadden may get 20-plus carries a game. If McFadden can handle it, the Raiders should go for it. McFadden is a special weapon and he can change games. He needs to be on the field as much as possible.
