Russell looks OK _ then the Raiders step in


Quarterback JaMarcus Russell completed a practice session Friday superior to minicamp performances of a year ago, then met with the media and will wind up the focal point for something other than his passing.

Former Raiders safety Eddie Anderson stood close by, cutting off any questions that had to do with Russell’s contract or the starting role.

Russell’s pretty good at not answering questions and probably could have handled things himself . . . oh, well. Anderson becomes part of the story.

More to come later, rookies coming in for press briefings . . .
