Rummours I’ve heards from the team have Miles Burris not far off a return. Luckily we have the bye-week this week, but he might be back – for strickly limited action – against the Steelers. I wouldn’t expect any significant Burris action until the Eagles game, however.
The big difference to last year, however, is the much imprved state of the Raiders LB’ing personel though. That is not to say that I don’t think Burris makes the 53, because he most definitely does, but there is no rush. Looking forward to a fully-up-to-speed Burris in the LB-core.
Veldheer, i fear, may take a few more weeks, and we have more of an urgent need on the OL….watch this space.
