ALAMEDA -- It looks as if Javon Walker (hamstring) and Kalimba Edwards (groin) will play on Monday night.
"They did everything and both of them ran," said Raiders coach Lane Kiffin. "We'll continue to look at tomorrow but both of them seem fine to me."
Walker said he is ready to go.
"It always feels pretty good when you're out there running around, when you out there and make plays and doing the things you didn't do all week," Walker said. "... I've been putting in a lot of hard work obviously in rehabilitating myself to get to back better, come back from surgery. So I'm looking forward to getting the season on a roll."
*Johnnie Lee Higgins will start off with punt and kickoff return duties. Darren McFadden has practiced returning kickoffs and is still an option to do that on Monday, Kiffin said.
*Higgins is the No. 3 receiver right now, but Kiffin is impressed with how Ashley Lelie has caught on to the offense.
Lelie figures to play a role in the offense on Monday.
"He's a professional," Kiffin said. "And you can see by the way he prepares and how fast he's picked everything up."
*P Shane Lechler and K Sebastian Janikowski are healthy, Kiffin reports.
