DENVER -- Andre Carter said upon his signing with the Raiders this week that if he wasn't ready to play, he wouldn't be "here," so to speak.Apparently, the pass-rushing specialist is not ready.Carter was one of the seven inactive Raiders players for today's game against the Denver Broncos, which is mildly surprising considering Oakland's need to generate a pass rush against Peyton Manning.Also, third-string quarterback Terrelle Pryor is inactive for the fourth game this season, as is offensive lineman Lucas Nix.The four other inactive players are all injured and were announced as "out" before Sunday -- cornerback Shawntae Spencer (right foot), right tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussionneck) and tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring).
