ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Long after practice got under way, Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour and five of his injured teammates — including four projected starters — slowly made their way out to watch the workout.
The debate over whether any of the six will play in Thursday's preseason finale in Seattle has morphed into concern about their availability for the season opener against San Diego on Sept. 10.
Seymour, who turns 33 in October, is nursing tendinitis in his knees. Center Stefen Wisniewski (calf) and wide receivers Denarius Moore (hamstring) and Jacoby Ford (ankle) have also been out while linebacker Aaron Curry has been on the physically unable to perform list since camp began. Reserve cornerback Pat Lee recently joined the walking wounded with a sore back.
