Garrard will not be a Raider

Take David Garrard off the Raiders' purported QB wish list.

According to a Tweet from Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, Garrard "just called me and told me he needs immediate surgery on herniated disc in his back.

"Garrard has been in a ton of painfrom training camp injury and MRI showed herniation of L4-L5. Says he wanted to be upfront w OAK."
With Jason Campbell lost for at least six weeks and possibly the season with a fractured right clavicle, there have been numerous reports that the Raiders had been in contact with Garrard's agent. Oakland has also been linked with Carson Palmer, Kyle Orton, Josh McCown and Trent Edwards.

Campbell said Monday he was set to undergo surgery later in the day. Kyle Boller is set to start Sunday against Kansas City before the Raiders enjoy their bye week. Rookie Terrelle Pryor is set to be activated this week for the first time in his nascent career as well.

Derek Carr approves of Tiger Woods' new pool table

Tiger Woods' re-felted pool table is for all of Raider Nation.

To no surprise, quarterback Derek Carr approves of the new look. 

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.

After eating her food as kid, Lynch purchasing restaurant from 79-year-old

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.
