WHEATLEY OUT UP TO A MONTH

The Associated Press


ALAMEDA, Calif.
Oakland Raiders running back Tyrone Wheatley expects to miss 2-to-4 weeks with a shoulder injury.

"I've seen better days," Wheatley told Sacramento radio station KHTK on Wednesday. "It's pretty banged up. I'll recover and get back soon."

When asked how soon, Wheatley said: "Soon is an ambiguous word for I don't know. It's one of those deals where the doctor gives you, you know, two-to-four weeks. So, you're just like, 'OK, two-to-four weeks.' It's just one of those deals where it has to heal."

Wheatley was hurt in the first quarter of Sunday' 30-17 loss to Houston after catching a short pass from Kerry Collins. He was tackled for a 1-yard loss and landed hard on his shoulder. Wheatley at one point tried to go back in the game but was held out by coach Norv Turner.


Wheatley wasn't in the locker room Wednesday during media availability. All the Raiders said was that Wheatley was doubtful for Sunday's game at Indianapolis and didn't specify which shoulder was hurt.

Turner said after Wednesday's practice that if Wheatley couldn't play, Zack Crockett and Amos Zereoue would get the bulk of the snaps at tailback.

Looks like Zach"TD Vulture" Crockett will get some carries. I just picked him up in my 20 team league, hoping for him to pick up a few goaline TD's. ;-D

Fargas and Amos should both get carries now that Wheatleys out of the picture.

No Fargas? Anyone worried that Crockett will steal GL carries?

If Fargas is healthy enough to play it seems likely all three will get touches. Probably not a good situation unless you're desperate. :-/

How can you guys ignore zereoue ? This Oakland situation is a mess. I would avoid all of these RB's unless you have an extra spot and want to take a wild guess as to who norv turner will rely on. Good luck.
