Seymour is no lock to start


Defensive tackle Richard Seymour missed practice for the fourth time this week. Coach Hue Jackson remained optimistic Seymour will play against Minnesota, but he sounded a little more guarded than on Wednesday and Thursday.

“I feel good about it, but we’ve still got to see,” Jackson said Friday following practice. “I was surprised he wasn’t able to go today, but that’s part of it. Again, we’re going to make sure we’re going to caution on the side of health for this football team.”

Another notable development was that safety Michael Huff sustained “a little bit of a setback” and will be evaluated Saturday and Sunday morning. Both Huff and Seymour were listed as “questionable,” as was fullback Manase Tonga (knee).

Also questionable are cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke (hamstring) and safety Mike Mitchell (ankle).

Listed as probable are place kicker Sebastian Janikowski (hamstring), safety Matt Giordano (quad) and center Samson Satele (knee) and tight end Kevin Boss (knee).

Running back Darren McFadden and wide receiver Jacoby Ford are both out of the Minnesota game, along with corneback Chris Johnson (groin) and quarterback Jason Campbell (clavicle).

    What’s up gay boys? You may be asking yourselves why John Jarndyce is a Raider fan and not a fan of a team like the Vikings. All that purple does look nice, though. I’m just a bad boy at heart. I guess that’s why I like the Raiders so much. Did you all know there was a gay Raider bar? It was called the Velvet. Sadly it closed down. You guys would have fit right in with all your black leather.

    How will the Raiders maintain their lead in stupid penalties at critical times if Seymour doesn’t play? Worst trade EVER!!!
