NAPA - JaMarcus Russell did not take part in team drills for the second straight practice because of a sore right elbow.
He was held out of team drills during last night's practice,after individual drills.
The injury occured when his elbow hit running back Darren McFadden's helmet.
"Just a little soreness from the other day," Russell said. "I bumped Darren's helmet while he was going to block, kind of full force as I was throwing, but I kind of did what I can right now."
Raiders coach Lane Kiffin said the team is being cautious, but doesn't forsee a long-term problem.
Russell will be re-evaluated in the morning. X-rays have already been taken and showed no damage. Russell said the elbow is sore and stiff "a little bit at times" and he tried to warm up as much as he could.
"We wanted to watch him throw, and our trainers watched him," Kiffin said. "They just felt that he was struggling a little bit with it, and he wanted to keep going, so we pulled him out."
Andrew Walter took first-team snaps in place of Russell.
Russell, who had the elbow iced after drills, said it was just an accident that happens when playing football.
Russell worked out throwing some short passes to offensive coordinator Greg Knapp after practice and joined the quarterbacks for some post-practice conditioning.
He doesn't know if he'll practice tomorrow.
"I'm going to try and get out and practice as much as I can, man," Russell said. "I really haven't made any decisions about it yet."
The Raiders went through various late game situations at the end of practice today.
There were the usual drives with less than two minutes and a few with little time on the clock.
The last drive ended with a field goal attempt and Kiffin told backup tight end Chris Wagner not to go on the field.
Shane Lechler, the holder on field goals, noticed he was a man short and called timeout.
"I pulled him just to show him the scenario," Kiffin said. "There was three seconds on the clock, and the offense had a time out, so Shane calls a time out there. If offense doesn't have a time out, Shane has to take a delay of game. So I was just making sure Shane was paying attention."
Rookie WR Chaz Schilens has good size and has shown good hands during training camp.
But he had back-to-back mental errors today.
He caught a pass in a simulated late game situation and didn't step out of bounds.
"Unless the guy falls down and there's nothing but grass get your (butt) out of bounds," quarterback Marques Tuiasosopo told him.
Schilens false started on the next play and had to take the penalty lap around the field. Schilens decided to run around both fields, though.
Essence Magazine has two Raiders nominated for its "Do Right Men of the Year."
