ALAMEDA -- Here's the injury situation headed into the Raiders game in Denver.

OUT: OT Khalif Barnes (groin), CB Shawntae Spencer (foot)

DOUBTFUL: WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussionneck)

Had a chance to get a few words from DHB after today's practice. He said he doesn't remember anything about the hit Steelers safety Ryan Munday put on him in the end zone in the fourth quarter on Sunday. He does remember coming to consciousness sometime when he was on the cart being led back to the locker room. You'll remember that he had the presence of mind to raise his arm to the Raider Nation when he was being carted off, the universal signal for "I'm all right."

DHB also said that Mundy texted him after the play to see that he was OK. Heyward-Bey indicated that the hit, which Munday was fined 21K for, wasn't a big deal for him. "It's football."

Dennis Allen said his fourth year wide receiver was making a "lotta progress" and the receiver himself said he's just begun the process of taking the concussion tests which will determine when he can get back on the field. He's listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Denver, but as he's not passed any of the tests yet -- "doubtful" seems optimistic. Stay logged on as we'll have video from DHB's locker room interview in a bit.

QUESTIONABLE: TE Brandon Myers (concussion), RB Mike Goodson (hamstring), Rod Streater (neckeye)

The good news here is Myers has passed his concussion tests, according to head coach Dennis Allen, and has been cleared for contact. Myers has been a revelation in the Raiders passing game, catching all 15 passes thrown his way this season. Rod Streater, on the other hand, had an eye issue leading up to today's practice, and after practice ended, he has a neck issue, too. According to Dennis Allen, the receiver tweaked his neck today.

PROBABLE: CG Alex Parsons (shoulder), RB Darren McFadden (shoulder), TE David Ausberry (shoulder), K Sebastian Janikowski (left groin), NT Tommy Kelly (knee), DT Richard Seymour (knee), DB Michael Huff (knee).

As Insider Paul Gutierrez mentioned yesterday, Richard Seymour's appearance at Thursday's practice was a good sign, and today, he's listed as probable.


OUT: S Quinton Carter (knee)

DOUBTFUL: G Chris Kuper (forearm)

QUESTIONABLE: LB Nate Irving (concussion), WR Matt Willis (hamstring)

PROBABLE: CB Chris Harris (ankle), RB Willis McGahee (ribs), CB Tracy Porter (knee), TE Jacob Tamme (groin)

More coming from Alameda soon- Dennis Allen did offer a few nuggets as to whether newly-acquired DE Andre Carter would play on Sunday. Story, and some video to follow.
