CSNCalifornia.comALAMEDA -- Raiders tight endKevin Boss, out since suffering an injury his left knee on a tackle by the 49ers Aug. 20, practiced "limited" Wednesday and plans on playing Sunday in Buffalo.The rest of the Raiders injury report -- Did not participate: receiversJacoby Ford (hamstring) andLouis Murphy (sports hernia), safeties Michael Huff (groin) andMike Mitchell (knee) and defensive tackleRichard Seymour (unknown); limited practice: Boss, running backDarren McFadden (unknown), cornerbackChris Johnson (unknown) and defensive end Jarvis Moss (unknown); full practice: quarterback Jason Campbell (unknown) and cornerback Joe Porter (unknown).
Raiders coach Hue Jackson said he was excited to have Boss in the mix again.
"It's been a long time but it's good to have him out there in a limited capacity, catching balls, running around," Jackson said. "We'll see where he is as we keep moving forward."Boss signed a four-year, 16-million free agent deal with the Raiders after four seasons with the New York Giants. And just after Pro Bowler Zach Miller left for Seattle."It's definitely not the way I planned, coming out here and getting off to the start I wanted," Boss said. "It's kind of one of those deals, it's out of my hands. I trust everything will happen for a reason and I'll get back out there and won't miss a beat."Boss was not on the trip to Denver."It's a weird experience to watch your team on TV," he said. "I felt more nervous watching than I would be playing because you don;t have any control over it. It was a tough situation to be on the couch watching, but I'm hoping to get back this week and help out."That's the plan right now. Going to kind of take it day by day, but right now, I feel like I'll be able to get out there and help contribute."

Oakland police credit Raiders QB Derek Carr for helping find missing child

Oakland police credit Raiders QB Derek Carr for helping find missing child

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has 247,000 Twitter followers and, given his popularity in the Bay Area, it’s assumed a significant portion stems from this region.

Carr put that megaphone to good use.

Oakland Police sent out an Amber Alert on Saturday hoping to find a young boy gone missing, and Carr retweeted that call for public assistance.

The boy was quickly found after a citizen replied on Twitter and provided information that led to the rescue.

That led an Oakland police officer to credit Carr for helping find the boy.

Carr responded to the news on social media, happy police were able to find a missing child.

Raiders S Karl Joseph named to PFWA All-Rookie team

Injury issues bookended Karl Joseph’s rookie year. The Raiders brought their first-round strong safety along slowly while recovering from ACL surgery, keeping him out of defensive action during 2016’s first two games. He missed four at regular-season’s end with a toe injury.

In the middle he played just fine. Joseph was solid against the run and impactful playing deep, allowing him and veteran Reggie Nelson to remain unpredictable in deep coverage.

Joseph finished the year with 60 tackles, an interception and six passes defensed.

That was good enough for recognition on the Pro Football Writers of America’s All-Rookie team, which was released on Tuesday following a vote of the association’s membership.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa were the offensive and defensive Rookies of the Year, respectively.
