Raiders coach Tom Cable said in his post-practice press briefing Wednesday that Trevor Scott would start at right defensive end over Matt Shaughnessy, Quentin Groves would start at weakside linebacker and Yamon Figurs would return both kickoffs and punts.
Cable did not rule running back Michael Bush out for Sunday’s game. Bush was limited in practice Wednesday, as was Desmond Bryant (elbow).
Those who did not participate were Chaz Schilens (knee), Travis Goethel (lower back) and Walter McFadden (hamstring).
It was the first disclosure of the injuries to Goethel and McFadden, although Cable would not elaborate whether Goethel had surgery or if the injuries held long-term ramifications.
More to come . . .
