Coston waived, Brown added to roster

Guard Junius Coston, signed last week to the 53-man roster, was waived so the Raiders could add defensive back Darrick Brown from the practice squad.

Game balls galore

It was raining game balls in Alameda Monday, the result of a 31-10 win over the Denver Broncos to snap a four-game losing streak.

Fourteen of them were bestowed upon the Raiders by coach Tom Cable.

Another win in Miami?

Note: Didn’t make the Miami trip this week, so no live in-game blogs today. Will post a wrap-up following the game.

Is it really too much to ask to convert a few third down plays and punch the ball into the end zone two or three times?

If the Raiders could manage to do that, it’s not inconceivable they could beat the Miami Dolphins today.

Hall, Walker costly against ’09 cap

The Raiders are not only out $20 million in actual dollars for the 16 games played by DeAngelo Hall and Javon Walker, but will also see both players take up a good chunk of salary cap space in 2009.

With Hall having been waived, the Raiders will have $5.833,334 in “dead money” under the 2009 cap, according to league figures.

Russell out; what if Walter wins?

Updates with all inactives, release of Fred Wakefield . . .

So now it’s official. JaMarcus Russell won’t start today’s game against the Carolina Panthers with a rather sudden and advancing case of right knee tendinitis.

When the Raiders released their inactive list, Russell was listed as the No. 3 quarterback, with Walter as the starter. Other inactives include running back Darren McFadden and wide receiver Ronald Curry, who got on the field for one snap last week as a shotgun quarterback, only to have the play nullified by a penalty.

Johnson will be a marked man

Opposing passers have approached the Raiders like a shooting gallery in arcade game, with the most inviting target being the cornerback opposite Nnamdi Asomugha.

The Carolina Panthers will be no different Sunday when they visit the Raiders at the Coliseum.

With Al Davis having given up second- and fifth-round draft picks and $8 million for eight games worth of DeAngelo Hall before determining he wasn’t even remotely the lockdown corner they anticipated, they turn to a 29-year-old minimum wage journeyman making his second career start.
