Raiders Release Details of Their 2009 Training Camp

The Raiders have broken down some of the details on their training camp. The following comes from the Contra Costa Times:

The Raiders released the times of their practices through the first weekend of training camp in Napa, and as expected, they will not have evening sessions.

In training camps under Lane Kiffin, the Raiders would spread out the amount of time between practices by having double sessions at 8:30 a.m. and 7 p.m., always followed the next day by a single practice in the middle of the day.

The reasoning was the time off gave the Raiders more time off to heal, and Kiffin credited the system with keeping the team relatively healthy during training camp under his watch.

With Tom Cable in charge, the Raiders are going old school. They will have double sessions for the first four days of camp, with practices at 8:30 a.m. and 4:20 p.m. on July 30, July 31, Aug. 1 and Aug. 2.

Ordinarily, teams will go in pads for only one of the double sessions.
