This is a tad depressing:

If the Raiders played today, their starting receivers would be Chaz Schilens and Louis Murphy, who have combined for four catches the past five games (one a TD by Schilens last week).

That's because four receivers missed practice Wednesday, including rookie Denarius Moore - a surprise newcomer to the list of banged-up players as he was wearing a protective walking boot on his right foot.

Jacoby Ford is still out with a foot injury of his own, and is expected to get his walking boot off today after two weeks. Darrius Heyward-Bey did not wear his neck brace but is still recovering from a concussion and neck injury sustained on a nasty hit from behind last week in Minnesota. T.J. Houshmandzadeh was with his wife for the birth of their child.

"It's a concern, but I think we have a chance to get some of these guys back toward the end of the week," coach Hue Jackson said. "But I think we'll be OK."

Guys stepped up- Carson threw to 7 different players. Apparently we have some nice depth at wide out! Bush had 4 catches as well.

Yeah,,I thought Carson did a fairly decent job. But there is something these guys have to work on with that red zone stuff. Like there is a force field in their way. But it's good to see Seabass is back in form.
