    Be afraid!!

    Porter expected to play against Vikings

    NAPA, Calif. (Aug. 12, 2006) -- Oakland Raiders coach Art Shell expects disgruntled wide receiver Jerry Porter to play against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Porter, who led the Raiders with a career-high 76 receptions last year, didn't play against Philadelphia in the Hall of Fame game last week because of a calf injury. Shell said trainer Rod Martin expects Porter to be able to go.

    "If he's ready to play, he'll play," Shell said.

    The 6-foot-2-inch, 220-pound Porter has had the calf injury for much of training camp and only recently returned to practice full time.

    But since returning, Porter -- who hasn't spoken with Shell since an offseason disagreement over conditioning -- hasn't spent any time with the first-team offense. Instead, he's practiced with the backups while Randy Moss, Doug Gabriel and Alvis Whitted take reps with the starters.

    Earlier this week, Porter made a nice catch during a scrimmage drill, prompting teammate Jarrod Cooper to joke from the sideline, "Hey Porter, why can't you do that with the (starters)?"

    Porter chuckled out loud and responded, "I'm not with the (starters)."

    Shell was noncommittal about whether Porter would play with Oakland's starting offense at any time against the Vikings.

    "He'll play," Shell said. "He'll play. If he's ready to play, he'll play."

    You speak the truth, Shock. It seems that as their paycheck grows, so does their ego. They keep getting things handed to them (by no means am I generalizing ALL pro athletes, just the bitchy ones), then when someone steps up and steals a little thunder, they go ape-sh!t.

    Sounds like something Moss said at one time in MN! "I'll play if I feel like it," or something along those lines. ;D
