ALAMEDA -- The Raiders began practice Tuesday with a new face, and number, in No. 18 Roscoe Parrish, a punt returnerreceiver, and without several familiar faces out with injuries.Defensive tackle Richard Seymour (knee), linebacker Aaron Curry (knees), defensive back Pat Lee (back), center Stefen Wisniewski (right calf) and receivers Denarius Moore (right hamstring) and Jacoby Ford (left foot) came out as a group again as the 30-minute media window to practice closed.Parrish, meanwhile, was running routes and catching passes. The seven-year veteran has 134 career receptions for 1,502 yards and seven touchdowns. So his presence and likelihood of landing on the 53-man roster might spell the end of Eddie McGee's chances of making the team if the Raiders go with six receivers in Darrius Heyward-Bey, Denarius Moore, Jacoby Ford, Rod Streater, Juron Criner and Parrish.The corresponding roster move in signing Streater was the Raiders waivinginjured offensive lineman Zach Hurd (head).
