The Raiders flew to Florida after their loss to the Bills on Sunday, staying on the East Coast in preparation for this week’s game in Miami. Their star running back is expected to re-join them Tuesday night.

Marshawn Lynch, suspended for last week’s game, missed Tuesday’s walk-through at the IMG Academy in Bradenton. But the Raiders say that was the plan all along, via Vic Tafur of The Athletic, with their practice week starting in earnest Wednesday.

Center Rodney Hudson can’t wait to see the return of Lynch, calling it a “big boost.”

“He’s a veteran back who knows how to get it done,” Hudson said, via Tafur.

Lynch, who was suspended for one game for leaving the sideline and making contact with an official during the Raiders’ victory over the Chiefs on Oct. 19, has 72 carries for 266 yards and two touchdowns.

  1. Lynch and Raider offense have not got’er done. Matter of fact, what has happen to the line from last year, because this line has really let Lynch down. And if I had to point a finger Penn has truly been disappointing.

  2. It amazes me that anyone would look up to a guy who was suspended for grabbing a ref while defending his “cousin” on the OTHER TEAM, who just laid a cheap hit on Derek Carr. Did Oakland really need to talk this man-child out of retirement? They have enough problems. For a “veteran”, he sure doesn’t set a good example.

  3. Dropped passes, misplaced zone defenses, bad coaching (play calling and Ken Norton Jr.) and collapsed pockets will not get you to the Super Bowl. Marshawn is just a bad distraction and has not played up to his reputation. Basically, the Raiders lack the right personnel and their record is not a “mirage.” It is evidence that this team is not ready to be elite.

  4. At 3-5, in last place and very unlikely to make the playoffs wonder if Marshawn is having second thoughts.

    He was at home making no money from the NFL. How much money are the Raiders paying him for this year?

    I’m guessing he’ll be fine. He has always been more about himself first…the team second.

  5. “He’s a veteran back who knows how to get it done,” Hudson said…

    I’m a Raiders fan and have been since Daryle Lamonica was our quarterback. You were a veteran who knows how to get it done Rodney, Marshawn Lynch, not so much. He’s averaging less than 4 yds a carry and is more interested in the SJ warrior life than the football life. Lynch and Anquan Bolden should just fade away!

    Just don’t point that finger at him in the team parking lot, or he may take your head off.

  7. So the team cancer is returning. I would be furious about this, but the reality is that the Raiders’ 2017 season is toast anyway so it doesn’t really matter if that slug comes back.

    I do however pray that Lynch is not on the 2018 roster.
