The Raiders released linebacker Napoleon Harris to make room for Chris O’Neill, who was added to the roster and is expected to face the New Orleans Saints today at the Coliseum.
According to David White’s twitter page, middle linebacker Kirk Morrison said during the pregame walkthrough he would miss the season opener, which would make Ricky Brown the Week 1 starter against San Diego.
Correction: Morrison was talking about missing today’s game against the Saints, not the opener against San Diego.
Morrison has never missed a game due to injury, and coach Tom Cable said during a conference call the day after a 21-20 loss to the 49ers he thought Morrison would be ready to play in Week 1.
