    Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is expected to be sidelined about two weeks with a chipped bone in his left wrist, according to a team source.

    Missing the time now will not be the issue. Just how debilitating the injury is will be a major concern throughout the season, however.

    Asomugha is the top bump-and-run cornerback in the league. If his wrist is bothering him, it's going to be more challenging for Asomugha to grab wide receivers at the line of scrimmage.

    Asomugha is the least of the Raiders' concerns after their dreary weekend against the Saints -- just the latest one.

    Talk about piss poor journalism. The season opener is almost exactly two weeks from today and the author neglects to even mention if he will miss it? Come on! Even if you don't know, you have to mention that it is unknown if he will play in the opener.

    Sad.

    Vincent Jackson and Norv Turner must be keeping a close eye on this situation. Philip Rivers and VJax are going to tear up that secondary which is great because that will put him on the radar as the elite WR he is at the start of the year. It's hard to fall from the top.
