- The Raiders received an extension until Friday to avoid a blackout. Their three previous home games this season have been sold out.
- Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski was limited in practice Thursday with a hamstring injury.
- Denver owner Pat Bowlen has stepped down from being part of the NFL labor committee. He’s been through some nasty negotiations in his day, including this year’s lockout.
