Sunday, November 6th, 2011 at 11:43 am in Oakland Raiders.
Running back Darren McFadden, cornerbacks Chris Johnson and Chimdi Chekwa, offensive lineman Bruce Campbell, tight end David Ausberry and quarterbacks Jason Campbell and Terrelle Pryor are inactive for today’s game.
Quarterback Carson Palmer worked extensively with his receivers in pre-game warm-ups and looked rather sharp. Time and again, throws from 40 yards out landed in the receivers’ hands without any adjustments being made.
He and Kyle Boller are the only quarterbacks active for the Raiders today.
Kicker Sebastian Janikowski has not appeared on the field yet to test out his sore left hamstring. He passed a test Saturday and was cleared to play by coach Hue Jackson.
Working in Janikowski’s favor is the fact the rain has stopped and the field is in good condition. So, there isn’t as much of a concern about Janikowski slipping on the turf and aggravating his injury.
