Tuesday, November 8th, 2011 at 3:37 pm in Oakland Raiders.
Right tackle Khalif Barnes (shoulder) and center Samson Satele (knee) were riding exercise bikes as the Raiders went through warmups and it remains to be seen if they’ll be ready to play Thursday night in San Diego.
Neither man went through the team walkthrough Monday.
If Barnes and Satele were unable to play, the offensive line would probably be Stephon Heyer at right tackle, Cooper Carlisle at right guard, Stefen Wisniewski at center, Joe Barksdale at left guard and Jared Veldheer at right tackle. Bruce Campbell, who has been playing both right guard and tackle of late, could be active after being inactive for the past three games.
Running back Darren McFadden was not present, and likely will be declared out Wednensday on the team’s injury report. Middle linebacker Rolando McClain was present, although it’s not known if he’ll get in any practice time. Also not practicing was free safety and nickel back Michael Huff, who remains in a walking boot to protect an injured ankle. Cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke (hamstring) didn’t appear to be practicing, although Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring) was on the field.
Coach Hue Jackson and players are available following practice.
