Oakland’s ugly preseason loss to the Saints is starting to look a whole lot uglier.
The team’s best player (not to mention the league’s best cornerback) Nmandi Asomugha will miss the next two weeks with a chipped bone in his left wrist, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Schefter raises the point that the two weeks of practice isn’t that important for a veteran like Asomugha, but the wrist could hinder the All Pro’s bump and run style.
The Raiders open their schedule with division favorite San Diego on Monday Night Football, and are hoping to avoid a tone-setting beatdown like the one they suffered against Denver last season. (At least DeAngelo Hall won’t be on the team.)
