Raiders injury report for Thursday: Seymour has setback

ALAMEDA -- Richard Seymour's balky hamstring tightened up on him in practice Thursday as the defensive tackle had a setback, according to coach Dennis Allen.

"We'll evaluate him as we finish out the week," Allen said, "but I thought he practiced well yesterday and then early today. It kind of grabbed him a little bit, so we'll see."

Seymour has missed five straight games.

And despite strong safety Tyvon Branch missing his third straight practice with neck and ankle issues, Allen is holding out hope Branch plays Sunday against Kansas City.

Darren McFadden, meanwhile is on track to play after re-aggravating the high ankle sprain Dec. 6 that had kept him out of the previous four games.

"Darren's been great," Allen said. "He's been great all week. I haven;t noticed anything where he's had any issues at all, and so I'm really kind of expecting him to be a full go."

Following, then, is the Raiders' injury report for Thursday:

Did not participate -- SS Tyvon Branch (neck/ankle).

Limited participation in practice -- RT Khalif Barnes (triceps), CB Michael Huff (wrist), DT Richard Seymour (knee/hamstring).

Full participation in practice -- DE Jack Crawford (toe), RB Darren McFadden (ankle), S Mike Mitchell (neck).

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.
