Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey returned to practice on Tuesday after missing four practices because — wait for it — he was fatigued.
Seriously, even Albert Haynesworth thought this was kind of a sketchy excuse.
Heyward-Bey’s training camp vacation was kind of ill-timed because he was picking up some steam as a possible sleeper this year, including a post from yours truly. As I mentioned before, he is really somebody who only deserves consideration in deep leagues, particularly 12-team leagues.
Heyward-Bey made some nice receptions today, according to Vittorio Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle (via his awesome Twitter page). And with no timeline for Chaz Schilens return, Heyward-Bey will get some more looks in camp — and even some taunting from some of his teammates for being tired.
RB Darren McFadden also returned to practice Tuesday. Another tantalizing Raider who will not do anything. RB Michael Bush is the guy to look after here. I mean, if you are intent on drafting a Raiders player. The only guy I would be looking at from the Raiders is TE Zach Miller.
