ATLANTA -- The Raiders are going with veteran leadership over youthful exuberance on the defensive line today against Atlanta's potent passing attack.Recently-signed defensive end Andre Carter, who had 10 sacks in 14 games last year before a torn quadriceps ended his season, is active for the 1-3 Raiders against the undefeated at 5-0 Falcons, as is defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, who missed practice Thursday with a foot injury.Two of the Raiders' draft picks on the defensive line, though, are inactive in Jack Crawford and Christo Bilukidi, who played collegiately down the road from the Georgia Dome at Georgia State.The injured trio of tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring), right tackle Khalif Barnes (groin) and cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot) had already been ruled out on Friday.The other two inactive Raiders, then: quarterback Terrelle Pryor and offensive lineman Lucas Nix.
