There are, however, two names that always stand out. One of them has a chipped bone in his wrist and will wear a cast for six weeks.
The Raiders say Nnamdi Asomugha will play in the opening game against the San Diego Chargers. Ordinarily, if I was a Vincent Jackson owner I would certainly consider my bench options to see if it was worth using him that week. He's probably the one matched up with Jackson.
