Sad news for Raider Nation today. WR Chaz Schilens has suffered yet another setback. Schilens is a talented, smooth pass-catcher who has transitioned from a 7th round pick out of San Diego State into the Raiders #1 wide receiver.
Last year during training camp, he broke his fifth metatarsal bone in his foot in a freak accident (literally Schilens was just running around). The injury plagued him all year, including this off-season.
Not good to say the least. If Schilens is plagued with injuries this season, the Raiders are left with Darrius Heyward-Bey and Louis Murphy, two extremely young and raw players, as their starters, with Johnnie Lee Higgins and Jacoby Ford as the reserves. With a questionable offensive line, Jason Campbell would have his work cut out for himself.
