Talking Chargers with Coach Allen  (Raiders.com)… Opening Statement: “Injury report today – guys that didn’t practice today, Miles Burris didn’t practice with an ankle and Charles Woodson did not practice with his ribs. Darren McFadden was limited in practice. Jeremy Stewart did not practice and Vance Walker did not practice. That’s the injury report. I thought we had a good practice today. I think our guys are excited about getting another opportunity to go out and play. That’s what we need to do – we need to go out and play against a team that’s playing at a very high level right now. They’re playing good in all phases of the game. Obviously their offense is sixth in the league in total offense and very explosive. They do a great job of controlling time of possession with what they do offensively. And then defensively they’ve really improved and over the last three games, they’re a top 10 defense. We understand the challenges and we’ve got to get ready to play.” (read more or watch video)
