Raiders' WR Schilens Suffers Broken Bone in Foot

By  | 

NAPA, Calif. (AP) - Chaz Schilens, projected to be one of the Oakland Raiders' top two receivers this season, broke a bone in his left foot while running a route during Tuesday's joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers.

Raiders coach Tom Cable didn't provide a timeline for when Schilens might return, but such an injury would likely sideline Schilens at least a month. He has been a major bright spot in the receiving corps this training camp.

Schilens said he was uncovered when he made a cut and felt a sharp pain. He broke the fifth metatarsal in his foot and left after practice on crutches.

The 23-year-old Schilens made six starts for the Raiders during his rookie season in 2008, making 15 catches for 226 yards and two
touchdowns.
