No sign of Burgess


Defensive end Derrick Burgess, fresh off his first practice since Oct. 6, was not with the defensive line Thursday as the Raiders concluded warmups and drills and were about to begin team sessions.

Burgess has missed five games with a torn right triceps.

Quarterback JaMarcus Russell and running back Darren McFadden were both on the field after being limited Tuesday. Backup quarterback Andrew Walter was suited up after sitting out the previous day.

Center Jake Grove was not on the field, while linebacker Ricky Brown was present but did not appear to be practicing.

Justin Miller, the cornerback and return specialist claimed off waivers from the New York Jets, was fielding kickoffs during special teams practice, as was Hiram Eugene.

More to come later . . .

    I take it the Raider Nation is perturbed at the way the system is being ran in Oakland.
