ALAMEDA -- The same five injured players were sitting out practice Thursday as Wednesday as the Raiders ramped up preparations for Sunday's season finale at San Diego.
Quarterback Carson Palmer (ribs and lung), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring and knees), strong safety Tyvon Branch (neck and ankle), cornerback Phillip Adams (groin) and right guard MIke Brisiel (concussion) were out.
Rookie Tony Bergstrom, the first player drafted by general manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen, was working at first-team right guard.
Meanwhile, Terrelle Pryor and Matt Leinart were splitting snaps at quarterback during the open media window, though Pryor was first under center Thursday.
Marshawn Lynch is getting to live out the dream of most pro athletes.
He's getting to finish his career by playing for his hometown team.
One fellow Oakland-native and AFC West rival can appreciate the opportunity in front of Lynch, but also had some fighting words for the Raiders running back.
“For Shawn to finish off this last little stretch of his career here at home, that’s dope,” Chiefs CB Marcus Peters told the Bay Area News Group on July 8.
“It’s going to feel good for him. It’s going to be a good feeling. It’s going to be a good feeling for Oakland. But when [the Chiefs] come here, we’re going to beat the dog s--- out of him,” Peters said.
So you can circle Thursday, Oct. 19 on your calendars. The Raiders host the Chiefs in Week 7. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:25pm PT.
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.
