Rhodes Ready to go After 4-Game Suspension


Back from serving a four-game suspension, new Raiders running back Dominic Rhodes is anxious to get on the field and help out his 2-2 squad that leads the league in rushing. “I like being out there with the team,” he said. “I like making plays, and stuff like that, and I saw the plays being made and plays I know I could make. It’s just been a frustrating process leading up to now, and I’m here, and it’s an off week, so I’ve got to wait even longer. I never want to have to go through this again so I’m going to be on my best behavior.”

Rhodes, who had over 100 yards rushing for the Colts in Super Bowl XLI, signed a two-year deal with Oakland in the offseason worth $7.5 million.  He is now ready to show that he was worth it.  “I beat myself up because I know that I could have been putting together some pretty big games,” Rhodes said. “Other times I was just saying, ‘You made your bed, so lay in it. That’s what it is. You have to deal with this. You’ll be back.’ Something good is going to come out of it. I think everything happens for a reason.”  Oakland is rushing for 194.2 yards per game, and now with a fresh Rhodes ready to show his stuff, those numbers should still remain high.
