No decision on Russell-Frye


With Bruce Gradkowski almost certainly out of Sunday’s game in Denver, coach Tom Cable said during his weekly press briefing he wanted to give the matter of whether to start JaMarcus Russell or Charlie Frye some more in-depth thought.

Expect Cable to make his call, after discussing it with Al Davis, on Wednesday.

Something Cable will have to take into consideration _ tight end Zach Miller sustained a concussion when he was hit near the end of the game by Rocky McIntosh. It was Miller’s second concussion of the season, the first coming Oct. 4 against Houston.

Given the league’s new guidelines on concussions and pressure to play it safe, Miller is no lock to play. Miller has been the only receiver Russell seems to trust. Russell threw nine of his 16 passes Sunday to tight ends.

More to come . . .
