ALAMEDA -- The Raiders took the field for their second session of OTAs in Alameda Tuesday, and the only notable absence was rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden, the team's top draft pick this year. Hayden, No. 25, participated in the team's first OTAs on May 20.

Placekicker Sebastian Janikowski was not on the practice field, either.

Six-year veteran cornerback Tracy Porter (calf) and three-year veteran corner Coye Francies (illness) did individual drills while the team stretched, and did not participate in team drills.

Nine-year veteran receiver Josh Cribbs was out there, but he didn't appear to take many reps and head coach Dennis Allen indicated he was nursing a knee issue. Meanwhile, linebacker Miles Burris suited up but did not participate, as he continues to rehab from his offseason knee surgery.

Rookie tight end Nick Kasa (hamstring) and second-year fullback John Hoese (calf) were limited in their participation. Also on the injury report were nose tackle Johnny Jones (knee) and defensive tackle Stacy McGee (foot).

I did not see rookie running back Deonte Williams.

Everyone else on the roster was present and accounted for, including veteran Charles Woodson, who practiced with the first-team defense without a number on his back.
