Raiders assistant offensive line coach Steve Wisniewski has reportedly left the team, two days before it reports to Napa for training camp and four days before the first practice.The Raiders, though, did not confirm the report, first issued by CBS Sports' Pat Kirwin, and Wisniewski's bio was still up on the team's Web Site as of 10 a.m. Thursday, lending credence to the notion he may stay with the team in an advisory role.As the assistant to incoming O-line coach Frank Pollack and his zone-blocking system, Wisniewski is one of three holdovers from last year's coaching staff, along with running back coach Kelly Skipper and offensive coordinator Al Saunders, who was moved to senior offensive assistant.Wisniewski's nephew, Stefen Wisniewski, was the Raiders' top draft choice in 2010 and had a standout season at left guard. The younger Wisniewski, though, is making the switch to center this season after missing all of the offseason training programs while receiving from shoulder surgery. He is expected to be a full go for camp.
