Tuesday, August 31st, 2010 at 1:43 pm in Oakland Raiders.
Quarterback Jason Campbell wasn’t participating in practice Tuesday during the 20-minute media window as the Raiders started a shorts and shells workout, according to beat writer Steve Corkran.
Everything appeared to be status quo from Monday. Running back Michael Bush (fractured thumb) was not present.
One player who was not accounted for was tight end Eric Butler, signed Aug. 19.
The Raiders had to cut one player to get to 75 players today.
If Butler was let go, the Raiders are left with three tight ends _ Zach Miller, Brandon Myers and John Owens.
The Raiders normally carry three tight ends on the 53-man roster, but considering they’ve used offensive lineman (most often Erik Pears) as an extra tight end in short yardage situations, it’s conceivable that when the dust clears after the final cut, only Miller and Myers will remain.
More to come later . . .
