The Raiders returned to practice today in preparation for their third preseason game. And they did it without wide receiver Amari Cooper participating, according to media present.

Cooper participated in stretches, but was not suited up for participation in the rest of practice.
There are to be three practices this week, as they would have during the regular season. The press conference with head coach Jack Del Rio was prior to practice, so he will not be able to offer any kind of explanation. He won’t speak to the media again until Thursday.
By then we should have a good idea of whether he will be available for the team’s third preseason game against the Titans on Saturday night.
