The Raiders are sticking with Charlie Frye as their quarterback in the season finale Sunday against Baltimore.
- Bruce Gradkowski is still suffering the affects of two knee injuries and is likely to miss his third straight game. Raiders coach Tom Cable indicated JaMarcus Russell is not ready to play, so Frye will be the guy again. He threw for 333 yards in a 14-point loss at Cleveland on Sunday. But Frye also threw three interceptions.
- The Broncos are putting left guard Russ Hochstein and returner Kenny McKinley on the injured reserve.
- The Chargers are making a plan for their season finale against Washington. The Chargers have already wrapped up the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.
