ALAMEDA -- Starting left tackle Kwame Harris is doubtful for Sunday's game in Kansas City. He was on the only Raider that missed today's practice.
He's still having trouble pushing of his right leg after hurting his right knee Monday night against Denver.
Harris will workout tomorrow before the team flies to Kansas City to test out the knee. If there's progress, he could workout before the game with the hope of being activated.
The more likely scenario is the team not forcing the issue after Harris has missed a week of practice and going with second-year tackle Mario Henderson, in what would be his NFL debut.
Sure many of you saw comments from former Raider Warren Sapp about the Raiders this week.
Among them were his essentially saying CB DeAngelo Hall was never good and that he wasn't in Oakland long enough to teach DT Tommy Kelly the details of playing three-technique.
Players that heard some of the comments dismissed them as Warren being Warren with a chuckle.
WR Javon Walker will play on Sunday, Kiffin said. Whether he would start depends on how much better his injured hamstring feels.
Ashley Lelie would start if Walker doesn't.
DE Kalimba Edwards (groin) will also play. The team hopes he helps the pass rush that produced no sacks in Week 1.
While Hurricane Ike's brunt isn't expected to impact Kansas City, thunderstorms are expected Saturday along with rain on Sunday morning.
That's fine with Lane Kiffin.
"We don't want the hurricane, but we don't mind bad weather," Kiffin said.
With Henderson possibly making his first NFL start along with quarterback JaMarcus Russell's first road start, a wet field would mean a lot of running plays, which is what the Raiders want to do.
