Denarius Moore stays on pace
By Bill Williamson
Oakland receiver Denarius Moore (hamstring) practiced well Friday and he is expected to play Monday night against San Diego unless there is a setback. Oakland receiver Jacoby Ford (foot) is still not practicing and he very likely will not play Monday.
Meanwhile, San Diego running back Ryan Mathews remained limited. He is not expected to play Monday with a broken clavicle.
In other AFC West news:
Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli and Atlanta general manager Thomas Dimitroff talk about their long relationship in a radio interview. Their teams play each other Sunday.
San Diego tight end Antonio Gates talks about the sense of urgency for the team in a radio interview.
The Redskins are meeting with tight end Chris Cooley next week. There has been some talk the Raiders (who could use a veteran tight end) could look into Cooley. But, clearly, he is going to wait and see what happens with the Redskins before even thinking about another team if there is, indeed, interest.
Pittsburgh star linebacker James Harrison is listed as questionable to play Sunday night at Denver because of a lingering knee injury. There is a report that says he won’t play. Denver coach John Fox is taking a wait-and-see approach on Harrison’s availability.
“We’ll kind of wait and see when the thing comes out officially and we’ll make that judgment then,” Fox said Friday. “We’re prepared for whoever they line up at outside backer to his side and we’ll go from there.”
