Sunday, December 27th, 2009 at 9:58 am in Oakland Raiders.
A few pregame notes:
– Raiders owner Al Davis did not make the trip to Cleveland, with son Mark accompanying his mother, Carole, on the trip. Davis did not travel to last year’s season finale in Tampa.
– FB Marcel Reece was activated to take the place of Luke Lawton, who was suspended for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing drugs.
– RB Justin Fargas (knee) is inactive, meaning Michael Bush will get a chance to duplicate his 133-yard effort a week ago and will almost certainly end the season as the Raiders leading rusher unless Darren McFadden has an off-the-charts game.
– TE Zach Miller is active, having passed all tests. Other inactives, Bruce Gradkowski, J.P. Losman, Khalif Barnes, Nick Miller, Brandon Myers, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Javon Walker.
