Allen returns and is on practice field

Coach Dennis Allen returned from Texas and was on the practice field as the Raiders underwent final preparations Wednesday for their game against the Denver Broncos.

Allen addressed the team before practice and will be on the sidelines Thursday night. Allen’s father, Grady, died of heart failure at age 66 Tuesday morning.

The only player not practicing was defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who will be ruled out of his fifth straight game later Wednesday. Cornerback and punt return specialist Phillip Adams was cleared to practice after missing the previous day’s session with a concussion.

Neither Allen nor any players will be made available to the media Wednesday.
