News: According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Raiders RB Lamont Jordan told team officials Monday he wanted out after being benched the past two games. If the Raiders decide to release Jordan, they won't have to look far for a replacement. They must activate rookie RB Michael Bush by 1 p.m. Wednesday or place him on the season-ending injured reserve list. Coach Lane Kiffin said the team hasn't decided what to do with Bush, but if it wants to add him to the 53-man roster, a current player must go - and Jordan has already raised his hand for that.
Analysis: Jordan's request came after being put on the inactive list for Sunday's 29-22 loss at Minnesota - the first time he did not suit up when healthy in three seasons with Oakland, including his 1,000-yard debut in 2005. He started the first four games of this season before injuring his back at Miami, where he had 15 carries for 74 yards in the first half. At the time, he ranked among the top five in NFL rushing. Jordan started the next two games, but with 71 yards on 29 carries, lost his starting job to Justin Fargas. Jordan followed that with 16 carries for 26 yards as a backup the next two games. He likely will not play against the Chiefs if he's still with Oakland, so continue to monitor what develops but don't plan on using him this week in any Fantasy league.
This came from my fantasy league, maybe if they waive him the Chiefs could pick him up on a limited contract to play now and back up LJ after he gets back. Just a thought but we sorely need a decent Running Back and he might be the most talented available. Plus he would love to hurt the Raiders because of the way he has been treated.
