OAKLAND -- Dennis Allen coached the Raiders Sunday with a heavy, unsettled heart as his father was gravely ill with an undisclosed condition back home in Texas.As such, Allen left the Raiders following their 20-17 loss to Cleveland to be by the side of his father, who is in intensive care in a Dallas-Forth Worth area hospital.Allen, who did not address the topic in his postgame media conference, anticipates returning to the team by Wednesday night at the latest and expects to be on the sidelines for Thursday night's home game against Denver. In Allen's absence, Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Knapp will run the team.

The golf legend tweeted a picture of his new table where he went with silver felt and a Raiders logo right in the middle. Woods' table also has silver and black balls with the Raiders logo on them.
Woods grew up in Southern California and attended Stanford in 1994, the Raiders' last year in Los Angeles. That same year, Woods helped the Cardinal become the NCAA Division I golf champions before turning pro.
Marshawn Lynch first tasted Cassie Nickelson's food when he was nine years old while she catered out of her Oakland apartment.
"When he was 9-years-old, he came across the street to get a hamburger and French fries. 25-cent French fries and a 75-cent hamburger," Nickelson said to KTVU.
Lynch, 31, is now set to take over Nickelson's popular soul-food restaurant, Scend's Restaurant and Bar, in Emeryville. Nickelson, 79, will be retiring in August.
"I'm comfortable with him and I like him," Nickelson said.
Lynch will not become the official owner until the liquor license changes hands. Scend's, an acronym for Nickelson's children and grandchildren, is known for its seafood, fried chicken and red beans.
