AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
Oakland guard Mike Brisiel is probable to play Sunday against Jacksonville. He left the Atlanta game Sunday with a concussion. Backup running back Taiwan Jones (knee) is questionable and will be a game-time decision.
Tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring) and cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot) remain out for Oakland. Spencer might be ready to practice next week.
The Chargers will reportedly visit with former Chicago tackle Chris Williams. The former first-round pick was cut this week and he has visited Philadelphia and Arizona. San Diego’s interest makes sense. The Chargers could use some depth at the position. I don’t think Williams is a top priority, but giving him a chance to develop in a new environment may be worth looking into.
The Chargers worked out former Dallas quarterback Stephen McGee on Thursday.
Here’s more news of fan violence. Really, this has to stop. It’s going on way too much across the professional sports landscape.
Oakland’s game against Jacksonville will be televised locally.
