ALAMEDA -- The Raiders' most up-to-date depth chart has been posted and there are no true surprises, unless you consider injured guys who have not practiced in weeks atop said depth chart out of the norm.

Yes, Denarius Moore, who last practiced on Aug. 4 due to a troublesome right hamstring, is listed atop one of the wide receiver positions and backed up by Jacoby Ford, whose sprained left foot suffered Aug. 17 kept him from jogging until Tuesday. And Stefen Wisniewski, who injured his right calf in the preseason opener on Aug. 13, is listed as the starting center.

Defensively, there are no shocks, though on special teams Ford is still listed as the top kick and punt returner, backed up by Taiwan Jones and Moore, respectively. The third-team guys there are Coye Francies on kick return and Phillip Adams on punt return.
