Raiders rookie corner has been getting banged up the past few weeks, but each time, he quickly bounces back. Now after missing practice on Wednesday with a knee injury, he is back at practice Thursday, according to media present, signaling he will be ready to play Sunday when the Broncos come to town.
The Raiders will once again need Carrie's services due to starting corner, Carlos Rogers still not back from his knee injury.
Missing practice for a second-straight day was rookie starting left guard, Gabe Jackson. He injured his knee late in the Raiders loss to the Seahawks last week and was replaced by last year's starting left guard, Khalif Barnes. With it looking like Jackson may not be ready to go this week, Barnes would replace him as the starter. Barnes had been starting at right tackle until he went out with a quad injury, opening the door for Menelik Watson to start.
Also not at practice was wide receiver, Kenbrell Thompkins. Thompkins missed practice last week with a personal issue. Tony Sparano, in his press conference this afternoon, should be able to shed some light on why Thompkins isn't practicing today.
