NAPA -- While we know that nine players are not practicing for the Raiders as they begin their final three days in Wine Country, it is also important to note who has returned to practice on Tuesday.Backup quarterback Matt Leinart, who required stitches on his right index finger after Friday's exhibition at Arizona, was back on the field after being an observer Sunday.So, too, was receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who suffered a sprained shoulder against the Cardinals and did not practice two days ago.Free safety Michael Huff, who was excused from the game to attend the birth of his daughter Madeline Rae and did not practice Sunday, was also on the field Tuesday, as was fullback Manase Tonga, whose absence Sunday was not explained, but whose Twitter feed suggested he also had a daughter born over the weekend.
