ALAMEDA -- Raiders head coach is scheduled to speak to the media at 2 p.m an discuss Sunday's 23-8 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Yes, as of now, he's still the head coach. No word on the meeting he was supposed to have with Al Davis last night.
Davis usually arrives at the facility late in the afternoon or in the early evening, so any news might not come until I'm trying to watch Monday Night Raw.
Several players said they aren't concerned about the situation. With the rumors of Kiffin's firing circulating since January, they aren't openly bothered by the talk.
Here's what some of the players had to say about the situation:
WR Javon Walker
"You know what? It's actually a funny situation to me. I'm a new guy coming in. I don't know all the circumstances of what's been going on. Obviously this is something that's been brewing even before I got here. So you know I'm just rolling with the punches. Whatever happens, happens. All I know is we've got to stick together as a team and go out and win. Win games and hopefully let this override and win games."
WR Ronald Curry
"We've been dealing with that since March, or whatever, they've been going back and forth with it. You just worry about the things that you can control. I mean, it's business, and hopefully it doesn't happen. I think Kiffin does a great job, but it's Al's team and I think Kiffin knew that when he got here. Everybody knows what's going on."
LB Thomas Howard
"Lane? I can't be worried about that. I'll let everybody upstairs worry about that. He'll be here next week. He's here now. He's our head coach. He's coaching us and we're going to try to keep winning games for him."
Walker didn't catch a pass yesterday in Kansas City. It's kept him in check and not yapping to his peers.
"Usually, I've got a loud mouth about that but I've been pretty quiet," Walker said.
Walker said his injured hamstring is coming along slowly. He expects to have a bigger role after playing sparingly against the Chiefs.
"The minute you feel good... you try to accelerate and stuff and boom, there you go again," Walker said. "We were just being cautious with it."
LT Kwame Harris intends to try to practice on Wednesday after missing the Chiefs game with a knee injury.
Harris was happy to see Mario Henderson have some success filling in for him. Henderson has been criticized a lot since arriving as a rookie last year.
"I don't think Mario ever got down in the dumps," Harris said. "That says something about his mettle."
