OAKLAND -- A week of pseudo-suspense came to a halt as Denarius Moore, who began practicing on his sore right hamstring Thursday for the first time since Aug. 4, was among the seven inactive players listed for the Raiders' season opener against San Diego.And with Jacoby Ford (left foot) already ruled out on Saturday, Oakland is dressing but four receivers in Darrius Heyward-Bey, undrafted rookie free agent Rod Streater, fifth-round draft pick Juron Criner and the recently-signed Derek Hagan.The five other inactives, then: third-string quarterback Terrelle Pryor, offensive linemen Joe Barksdale, Tony Bergstrom and Lucas Nix and defensive end Jack Crawford.As such, two of the Raiders' first draft picks of the McKenzie-Allen Era are inactive for their first game in Bergstrom and Crawford, while linebacker Nate Stupar is on the practice squad. Linebacker Miles Burris, though, should start at weakside linebacker and defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi and Criner are active.
