    Ė Great moment at the close of practice when Jailen Cooper, age 10, flattened his favorite Raider, Darren McFadden, in the midst of a gauntlet of Raiders chanting his name.

    Jailen had surgery to remove a tumor from is pituitary gland in December of 2008 and has undergone a rough road with chemotherapy. His visit was arranged by the Raiders and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    Jailenís mother, Jessie, reports her son is doing fine, a recent MRI showed no tumor and the prognosis is good for a full recovery.

    The Raiders sent Jailen a No. 1 jersey with his name on the back and he addressed the media following practice along with Cable. Raiders CEO Amy Trask said there were a lot of lumps in a lot of throats at the reaction of Jailen when he saw a locker which was set up for him in the Raidersí locker room.

    More to come later . . .

    --------

    Awesome.

    Good to see Darrius Heyward-Bey looking better and better now. Even though it is just OTAs but hoepfully it will carry over to the regular season

    BTW, great story with that young man from the Make-A-Wish foundation. Props to the team, and McFadden on that

    I'm guessing McFadden was trying to juke him... like for real. It's what we're used to from him so why think any different ha ha

    Ė Canít roll my eyes anymore when Tom Cable tells how much Darrius Heyward-Bey has improved. Best practice Iíve ever seen him have, and there isnít anything else thatís even a close second.
    Perhaps the offense is throwing beachballs to DHB instead of footballs. He might be able to catch those.

    Glad to see DHB doing well. This should help his confidence. Hopefully he can keep this up through training camp and of course, the season.

    nice story about the 10 year old but could it of been any other RB other than McFadden.

    he's already got a reputation for going down easy and this can't help.

    I am pulling for DHB. It is easy to pull for someone who has such an impeccable work ethic (as reported, I personally don't know obviously).
