Who's practicing for injured Raiders on short week?

ALAMEDA -- Two of the three Raidersplayers who were concussed in Sunday's loss to Cleveland were practicing with the team Tuesday morning, in anticipation of Thursday night's game against Denver.

Safeties Matt Giordano and Mike Mitchell were both on the field during the media access window, while cornerback/punt returner Phillip Adams was an observer.

Also, Richard Seymour, who has missed the last four games with hamstring and knee issues, was nowhere to be seen.

Defensive end Jack Crawford, though, was practicing after missing the Browns loss with a toe injury.

Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson, both of whom missed the last four games with high ankle sprains, were practicing again, as was newly signed fullback/running back Jamize Olawake.

Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp was running practice in the absence of Dennis Allen, who is back in Texas with the passing of his father Grady.

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.
