"After getting some treatment Monday and Tuesday, we felt like holding (Seymour) out of practice today," said coach Dennis Allen. "Hell be another guy well have to see where hes able to be at the end of the week."It is important to note, then, that MRIs on both McFadden and Goodson came back negative.A positive, though, would be Desmond Bryant practicing after leaving Sunday's game early in the second half and spending the night in Eden Medical Center with an irregular heartbeat."I wouldn't say it was scary," Bryant said Wednesday. "It surprised me, for sure. I expected to be out for maybe a series or maybe a couple of plays. The next thing I know I'm being carted off to the hospital. It was upsetting for that to happen, but at the same time it wasn't scary."The first thing I noticed was at halftime, it was beating pretty fast, which is not necessarily abnormal, but the fact that it didn't ever slow down during the whole halftime, I knew something was up."Right tackle Khalif Barnes, out since Week 2 with a groin injury and resultant procedure, practiced for the first time since being injured."Rusty, but improved," Allen said. "Improved. I'm optimistic, but I'll know more at the end of the week whether he'll have a chance at this game or not."Also, cornerback Ron Bartell practiced again but he has yet to be activated to the 53-man roster off the reserveinjured; designated to return list. The Raiders can activate him for Sunday's game at Baltimore is they choose."Actually, we cant make any type of move on him until Saturday," Allen said. "But, again, well evaluate him throughout the week, and thats the great thing about this is we dont have to make any decisions until the end of the week."Following, then, is the Raiders' injury report for Wednesday:Did not participate -- RB Mike Goodson (ankle), RB Darren McFadden (ankle), DT Richard Seymour (kneehamstring), CB Shawntae Spencer (right foot).Limited participation in practice -- RT Khalif Barnes (groin), TE Brandon Myers (shoulder), PK Sebastian Janikowski (left groin), S Matt Giordano (hamstring).Full participation in practice -- RT Willie Smith (knee), FB Marcel Reece (hamstring), LB MIles Burris (elbow), LB Keenan Clayton (shoulder), DT Desmond Bryant (cardiac), DE Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder), DE Dave Tollefson (shoulder), CB Coye Francies (thumb), S Mike Mitchell (finger).
