Another one bites the dust...
Just as I was preparing to bestow official sleeper status on Chaz Schilens, the Raider WR broke his foot in practice and will be lost for the next 6-8 weeks.
That's a bummer, because I was looking forward to actually saying something positive about a member of Oakland's wide receiving corps for the first time in years. Schilens was clearly emerging as the #1 target of QB JaMarcus Russell, and he was catching everything in sight throughout training camp and in the team's first preseason game against Dallas.
Oh well, I suppose we'll see if another player steps up in Schilens' place; though I'm certainly not expecting it.
