Raiders center Stefen Wisniewski left the team's first preseason game with a calf injury on their first series and has not returned to practice since. He missed the team's second preseason game last Friday versus the Cardinals. And Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said today that he will not play in the next game either.

"I wouldn't expect him to play this week, no." said Allen of Wisniewski.

Practicing today but he didn't take any reps with the second team. Terrelle Pryor took his place in drills with the second team and Kyle Newhall-Caballero was throwing with the third team. Leinart suffered a lacerated finger against the Cardinals that required stitches. It is on his non-throwing hand and is nothing serious but with this being the preseason, there is no reason to risk it.

"He's fine to play." Said Allen. "Whether we play him or not, I don't know the answer to that yet. That will be a game time decision."

This week the team has been preparing in the same routine as the regular season which means that whomever wasn't practicing today should be out for the game Saturday. And with Pryor practicing with the second team, it is a clearcut indication he will be the next off the bench one Carson Palmer leaves the game.

Richard Gordon didn't practice today. He left before team warm-ups with sore ribs that from Friday's game.

Others not practicing were Jacoby Ford (foot), Denarius Moore (hamstring), Rashawn Jackson (hip), Aaron Curry (knee), Ed Wang (shoulder), Zack Hurd (head), Richard Seymour (sore knee, vet time off), and Jamie Cumbie (foot).
