Pryor in action at Raiders practice

ALAMEDA -- That relatively new face at Raiders practice Wednesday morning?Quarterback Terrelle Pryor, whose five-game suspension to begin his NFL career came to an end following Sunday's game at Houston.We were only privy to the first 15-or-so minutes of practice, but Pryor's passing seemed much crisper than the last time we saw it, in the waning days of training camp in Napa.
Also, it appeared as though recent practice squad signee Nic Grigsby had switched from running back to working with the defensive backs.And there were no signs of fullback Marcel Reece (ankle) or defensive end Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder) at the start of practice.

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.
