Oakland Raiders: Chaz Schilens and Hiram Eugene Injury Updates

Wait a second here. Let me just scan my story reserves for the canned Chaz Schilens injury piece. Ah here it is. Chaz Schilens injured his insert part of leg here knee, and the Raiders are not disclosing the nature of the injury. There is no timetable given for a return date.
I just got done making light of his injury, but I feel horrible for the guy. I have no idea when this injury happened, and I wouldn't have known he was injured at all until is saw a tweet from CSN's Paul Gutierrez.. While it is frustrating as a fan to see a player with so much potential suffer injury after injury, I can only imagine what it must be like for Schilens himself. So here is hoping the injury is minor, but the way things go with Schilens, his season is likely all but over.
I can't help but think this came on the reverse to Schilens. I don't remember seeing him on the field. I have no idea why you would ever run a reverse to Chaz Schilens in a preseason game. Of all the players that have ever played, Chaz Schilens would be on the bottom of my list of give the ball to on a reverse in a preseason game.
*Update: From Vittorio Tafur's Twitter account: "more optimistic about Schilens' injury (knee) than Eugene's injury (dislocated hip)."
I don't think optimistic, Schilens and injury should ever be in the same sentence.
Jump over for more on Hiram. The news is not good. Best of luck Hiram....
Gutierrez also updated us on Hiram Eugene's injury. Apparently he dislocated his hip, or as well forever be known in my head as the Bo Jackson injury. Bo's injury led to blood flow complication which is what ended his career and required the need to replace his hip. Let's hope Hiram's injury does not go this route.
