Pashos, Gurode doubtful vs. Steelers
By Paul Gutierrez
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- While right tackle Tony Pashos (hip), left guard/center Andre Gurode (quad) and rookie tackle Menelik Watson (calf) did not practice Friday for the Raiders, none of the aforementioned offensive linemen were ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
All three were listed as doubtful, though. Pashos worked on a side field with a trainer.
The likely starting lineup for the Raiders' offensive line: LT Khalif Barnes, LG Lucas Nix, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Mike Brisiel and RT Matt McCants.
In fact, the only player ruled out was strong safety Tyvon Branch, who has not played since breaking his leg in Week 2. Branch, though, was in the locker room during open access, walking without a boot or a limp. He declined to talk to reporters.
Here's the full injury report for Sunday:
Out: SS Tyvon Branch (ankle)
Doubtful: C/G Andre Gurode (quad), RT Tony Pashos (hip), LT Menelik Watson (calf).
Questionable: LB Kaluka Maiava (hamstring)
Probable: CB Tracy Porter (shoulder), C Stefen Wisniewski (right knee).
