The final injury report for the 2014 season came out today. There was some good news and bad news on it. Khalil Mack was limited in practice all week and is officially questionable for the game. The Raiders very much need him as close to 100% as possible if they hope to put pressure on Peyton Manning. Returning to practice Friday were T.J. Carrie and Menelik Watson. Carrie played last week against the Bills but had been out the first two practices this week with an ankle injury. Watson has been out for the past few weeks with an ankle injury. For the Broncos, linebacker Brandon Marshall has...

Last Sunday when the Raiders faced the Bills in Oakland, Justin Tuck had a rare moment of completely losing his sh...er composure. He was blocked on a pass rush attempt that had a Bills offensive linemen roll up on the back of his knees and left Tuck hurt on the field for a couple minutes. When he eventually got up, he was fuming. He went up to the official and berated the official who was closest to the play but who did not throw a flag on what Tuck believed to be a high-low block or at very least a holding penalty as the linemen grabbed Tuck's chest and pulled him backward. The official...

The Raiders are yet again running the risk of losing their top home grown talent to free agency. Stefen Wisniewski, who the team chose in the second round of the 2011 draft and has been the team's every day starting center all four seasons, will see his rookie contract expire this off-season. And according to him -- as tweeted by Josh Dubow of the Associated Press -- the Raiders contract offers have not been appealing to him. Pending free agent Stefen Wisniewski says #Raiders made a few offers but nothing he was looking for. Sunday could be final game w/ team — Josh Dubow (@JoshDubowAP)...

By Chris Tomasson firstname.lastname@example.org Fritz Pollard Alliance chairman John Wooten said Friday he has recommended to Oakland owner Mark Davis that Vikings executive Kevin Warren would be an ideal choice for Raiders president. Wooten called the Raiders the NFL’s only team without a president, although a few teams do not use that precise title for the role. The Fritz Pollard Alliance works with the league on minority hiring. The NFL’s only current minority president is San Francisco's Paraag Marathe, an Indian-American. Warren, Minnesota’s executive vice president of legal affairs...

Win Sunday against Oakland, and the Broncos get a week off, resting during the first weekend of the playoffs. A weekend without tackling, or blocking, or banging bodies.

Raiders fullback Marcel Reece was named to the AFC Pro Bowl team for the third straight time on Tuesday. Safety Charles Woodson and rookie linebacker Khalil Mack were picked as alternates. Reece has 34 catches for 235 yards and a touchdown, and 20 carries for 74 yards. Those numbers are down from last year’s 331, 218 and 4 and while Reece has been a little frustrated at times, he is happy the team has won its last three home games. The native of Inglewood joined the Raiders in 2008 as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Washington, where he played wide receiver. Reece spent the entire...

Derek Carr was not practicing during the media window on Tuesday. The rookie quarterback missed some time in practice last week with thumb and ankle injuries and almost left the game Sunday after he took a “knee to the glute area,” according to interim coach Tony Sparano. Tuesday is normally a day off for the players, but they are going today instead of Christmas Day. Which means we are not due an injury report and Sparano doesn’t have to address the absence after practice if he doesn’t want to. Matt Schaub and Matt McGloin got all the quarterback reps on Tuesday.
As the Raiders finished the media window before Tuesday’s practice, rookie quarterback Derek Carr was not on the field. Matt Schaub and Matt McGloin were set to take reps as team sessions began and the media was excused. Carr is… Continue Reading →

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie hadn’t spoken to the media since coach Dennis Allen was fired after Week 4. I caught up with him for a few minutes after Sunday’s 26-24 win over the Bills, and he said the 3-12 Raiders finally have the key pieces in place to turn the corner. “The foundation has been built,” McKenzie said. “That’s what it’s all about. The more young guys play, the more comfortable they get … and now they’re making plays. “And we continue to grow that.” McKenzie was referring to the last two draft classes (from which seven players started Sunday),...
