No word on who the Raiders cut to make room for Erik Pears, but return specialist/wide receiver Yamon Figurs was not present or accounted for during the media window Wednesday.
Figurs didn’t finish the Tennessee game with a stringer, but said Monday he was good to go for the St. Louis game.
Those not present at practice who had injury issues included left guard Robert Gallery (hamstring), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring) and linebacker Travis Goethel (lower back) cornerback Walter McFadden (hamstring). Those present but not practicing were cornerback Chris Johnson and safety Hiram Eugene.
Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha also wasn’t practice as practice began. Asomugha occasionally comes out late after stretching with trainers. Running back Michael Bush was on the field with his left thumb wrapped and was in conversation with trainer Rod Martin as practice began.
Free safety Michael Huff, who didn’t finish the game with a knee injury, was practicing.
More to come later . . .
