Fargas says he's fine, Raiders say he failed a physical
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 7, 2010 9:57 AM ETThe latest item on the transactions page of the Oakland Raiders' official web site reads, "RB Justin Fargas released (failed physical)."
But Fargas says he's healthy. In fact, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Fargas says he's healthy enough to play football today.
While Fargas disputes the "failed physical" claim, the Raiders say elsewhere on their web site that they're sorry to see him go.
"Justin Fargas was a beloved Raider who performed at a high level throughout his seven seasons with the team and his contributions to the Silver and Black will always be remembered," the Raiders' statement reads. "We wish Justin all the best."
