Subbing for Steve Corkran today . . .
Looks like the following players aren’t practicing today: DE Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder), WR Louis Murphy, (groin) LB Ricky Brown (concussion), FB Marcel Reece (ankle), FS Michael Huff (concussion) and CB Chris Johnson (hamstring).
Safety Mike Mitchell looks like a go, given he is practicing for the third straight day. Same goes for Jacoby Ford, who even fielded a few punts today _ a duty he has yet to perform in a game for the Raiders.
Don’t have a good read on the seriousness of Shaughnessy’s shoulder injury. He’s watching wearing a baseball-style cap. It’s not as imperative for defensvie linemen to practice, only to be able to beat the man in front of them on Sunday with whatever pain-killing help is available.
