No surprises or miracles. Darren McFadden is inactive for the second consecutive game with a hamstring injury and Bruce Gradkowski was designated as the No. 3 quarterback, meaning Kyle Boller is a play away from seeing action today against the 49ers at Candlestick Park.
It’s rainy and wet _ should be a good game for guys who should be heavy-footed mudders such as Michael Bush.
The bulk of my time during the game will be with a live chat. I’ll try and check back here from time to time at quarter breaks. Be forewarned _ wireless here is supposed to be pretty erratic. We’ll hope for the best . . .
Other Raiders inactives: CB Walter McFadden, RB Michael Bennett, LB Travis Goethel, LB Thomas Howard, DT John Henderson and WR Chaz Schilens.
For the 49ers, inactives are WR Kyle Williams, S Curtis Taylor, TE Delanie Walker, T Barry Sims, G Tony Wragge, T Alex Boone and WR Jason Hill.
