ALAMEDA - Quarterback JaMarcus Russell was guarded in predicting if he'd be able to practice Wednesday but interim head coach Tom Cable has no doubts.
"He'll practice," Cable said. "He'll be ready to go."
Cable said Russell would be limited.
He added center Jake Grove (calf) is expected to return to practice Wednesday as is wide receiver Ashley Lelie (concussion).
Only linebacker Ricky Brown (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.
"It's a high groin issue," Cable said of Brown. "It's up high in the groin so those are the worst kind."
*Cable said he'd look to get Mario Henderson some playing time at left tackle as the season winds down to further his development. He wasn't sure how much time that would be.
*Cable was asked again about running back Darren McFadden's health. He conceded McFadden isn't 100 percent because of turf toe on both feet.
"I don't know if you ever get completely healthy till enough time has gone by with turf toe," Cable said. "There's still some issue there but he's certainly the healthiest he's been in regard to that."
*It doesn't sound as if Randy Moss will be on the conference call Wednesday for the New England Patriots. That makes the call a lot less interesting. Instead of asking Moss about being a Raider, some poor teammate will be hit with a dozen Moss questions.
*If you'd like to meet Russell he'll be in Fremont tomorrow where he'll be signing autographs at the Verizon Wireless store from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
You can also catch Safety Gibril Wilson and defensive end Kalimba Edwards Hayward at Southland Mall tomorrow.
They'll be signing autographs in exchange for toys as part of the Toys for Tots program from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
