Raider News From Yahoo
National Football League roundup (Reuters)
(The Sports Xchange) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo missed his third straight day of practice with a back injury on Friday and could be a game-time decision. Coach Jason Garrett said Romo will need to move around better before Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals in order to be able to play. The Cowboys have a short walkthrough Saturday. Romo has been receiving treatment on his back all week but has not done any football activities. Brandon Weeden would start at quarterback if Romo can't go, with undrafted free agent Dustin Vaughan as the backup. ...
Chancellor, Okung to be game-time decisions (The Associated Press)
The Seattle Seahawks could be without starting safety Kam Chancellor and left tackle Russell Okung for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Chancellor (groin) and Okung (calf) were held out of practice Friday and are listed as questionable. ''(Chancellor)'s banged up a little bit. He'll be worked out on game day to see if he's ready to go,'' head coach Pete Carroll said.
Raiders may be without starting CB Carlos Rogers (The Associated Press)
The Oakland Raiders are expected to be without cornerback Carlos Rogers for Sunday's game against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. It's another blow to the NFL's 31st-ranked defense, which has been plagued by injuries and poor play. The winless Raiders have already lost three defensive starters - defensive end LaMarr Woodley, middle linebacker Nick Roach and strong safety Tyvon Branch - to season-ending injuries. Interim coach Tony Sparano said Friday he's holding out hope that the 33-year-old Rogers can play despite not practicing for most of the past two weeks.
Raiders S Ross fined $22,050 for hit (The Associated Press)
NEW YORK (AP) -- Oakland safety Brandian Ross has been fined $22,050 for his hit on Browns tight end Jordan Cameron that gave Cameron at least his third concussion in three seasons on Sunday.
Chasing Van Brocklin: 500-yard passers in rare air, but his record remains (Shutdown Corner)
So shrouded in mystery is the NFL’s all-time single-game passing-yards mark — 554, by Norm Van Brocklin of the Los Angeles Rams in 1951 — that there are no physical relics from the game in question at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Canton is full of memorabilia and artifacts from many of the other significant moments in NFL lore, and anytime these days a new mark goes down another piece is added to display. But its best passing game has but a few known photographs representing a mark that miraculously has stood for more than 63 years. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger made a gallant run at Van Brocklin this past Sunday, completing 40-of-49 passes (with a few clear drops) for 522 yards (tied for fourth-most all time), six touchdowns (a Steelers record) and no interceptions.

Will Tukuafu to take fullback job for Seahawks (The Associated Press)
After two weeks of using Robert Turbin as a stop-gap, the Seattle Seahawks will turn to 285-pound fullback Will Tukuafu to lead the way for Marshawn Lynch. The Seahawks signed Tukuafu on Wednesday after electing to place starting fullback Derrick Coleman on injured reserve last Saturday. Tukuafu originally signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Oregon in 2010.
Browns trying to figure out sluggish running game (The Associated Press)
The Browns running game was one of the team's biggest strengths early in the season. Now, it's become a crutch in the wake of Pro Bowl center Alex Mack's season-ending leg injury. ''It's expected,'' offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said of the team's recent trouble on the ground. I've never gone through an NFL season where you just do it every single week.
Mack making impact for Raiders even without sacks (The Associated Press)
Khalil Mack has done just about everything the Oakland Raiders have asked of him his rookie season. The only thing lacking so far from Mack is something he was supposed to get frequently: a quarterback sack. Through seven games, Mack is still seeking his first sack despite being compared to pass rushing specialist Von Miller when he was drafted fifth overall in May. ''It's something that's kind of sitting on my mind,'' Mack said. He has been credited with 15 quarterback hurries and hits the past three games, according to Pro Football Focus, and his 22 pressures for the season are the most for any player without a sack.
Notre Dame's Robinson grows into big-play receiver (The Associated Press)
Notre Dame receiver Corey Robinson didn't dwell on his potential game-winning touchdown against Florida State being taken away by a controversial penalty. ''At the moment I saw the flag, I said, 'OK, next play,''' said the son of former NBA star David Robinson. Fighting Irish coaches say Robinson's cool demeanor and work ethic is helping him grow into a big-play receiver. He had two touchdown catches against Florida State and a key catch for a 20-yard gain on fourth-and-18 that kept alive the drive that gave Notre Dame a chance to win.

Raiders-Seahawks Preview (The Associated Press)
The Seattle Seahawks might have issues on and off the field, but whatever state they're in is better than that of the winless Oakland Raiders. Looking to build on a much-needed victory, the Seahawks try to hand the visiting Raiders a 14th consecutive defeat Sunday. Still grasping the effects of the Percy Harvin trade and dealing with reports of locker room division, Seattle (4-3) avoided a third straight loss with last Sunday's 13-9 victory at Carolina. The Seahawks managed only 310 total yards, but 23 came on Russell Wilson's pass to tight end Luke Willson with 47 seconds left for the game's only touchdown.
Carr prepares for tough test vs. Seahawks (The Associated Press)
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- Derek Carr won the starting quarterback job for the Oakland Raiders in part based on how well he played in the preseason against Seattle.

Hawkins top receiver for Browns (The Associated Press)
After another big game Sunday against the Raiders, Cleveland Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins has firmly established himself as quarterback Brian Hoyer's go-to security blanket. Better yet, Hawkins' son might just have a new favorite team and player. ''We're pulling him over,'' Hawkins said. Hawkins then playfully puts Austin outside with his luggage and wishes him luck after closing the door.
Buccaneers-Browns Preview (The Associated Press)
Mike Pettine had no interest in deeply analyzing last week's victory that helped the Cleveland Browns match their win total from last season, instead choosing to revel in the fact that his club is heading into November with a winning record for the first time in seven seasons. It's a position the Tampa Bay Buccaneers only can envy as they visit Cleveland on Sunday looking to avoid a fourth straight defeat. The Browns (4-3) didn't impress many outside of their locker room with last Sunday's 23-13 victory over winless Oakland as their offense sputtered for a second straight week. It was a performance that barely exceeded the previous week's blunder, when Cleveland set a season low with 266 total yards and committed three turnovers in an embarrassing 24-6 loss at previously winless Jacksonville.

Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Will Cardinals have hometown Super Bowl? (Shutdown Corner)
New problems, same results each week for Raiders (The Associated Press)
Every week there's a new problem and the same result for the Oakland Raiders. The most recent games it was three costly turnovers that did in Oakland in a 23-13 loss at Cleveland. The one constant has been the losses whether it was under former coach Dennis Allen or his interim replacement Tony Sparano, who fell to 0-3 since Allen was fired after an 0-4 start. ''I think we've given ourselves a chance to win three football games right now.
Browns' Pettine satisfied with 'ugly' win (The Associated Press)
As he was leaving the stadium following Sunday's win over Oakland, Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer took some playful teasing from assistant coach Dowell Loggains about a cap he was wearing. It was a much better look than Cleveland's 23-13 win over Oakland. One week after an embarrassing road loss at Jacksonville, the Browns managed to hold at home despite rushing for just 39 yards, converting only 2 of 12 third downs and being outgained by the winless Raiders. Still, it was a win and Browns coach Mike Pettine isn't about to apologize for it.
Browns TE Cameron suffers third concussion (The Associated Press)
Browns Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron is following NFL protocol after sustaining at least his third concussion in three seasons on Sunday. Cameron was struck in the back of the head by Oakland safety Brandian Ross in the second quarter while making a diving 21-yard catch. Cameron had three catches for 40 yards before he got hurt. The 26-year-old missed one game last season with a concussion and two in 2012.
Former Raider lineman Mo Collins dead at 38 (The Associated Press)
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The West Charlotte high school athletic director says former Oakland Raiders offensive lineman and the school's football coach Mo Collins died Sunday. He was 38.
Hoyer, Browns grind out 23-13 win over Raiders (The Associated Press)
Brian Hoyer knew the noise was out there. He knew following his worst start in the NFL that the drumbeat for Johnny Manziel was growing louder. Hoyer and the Browns rebounded from an embarrassing loss last week in Jacksonville by making just enough plays Sunday in a 23-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders, who remain the NFL's only winless team. Taking advantage of a turnover caused by a big hit from Cleveland safety Donte Whitner, Hoyer threw a 4-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter to Andrew Hawkins as the Browns (4-3) matched their win total from last season with nine games left and stayed in step with the rest of the AFC Central.
Resilient Cardinals rally past Eagles (The Associated Press)
It's been 40 years since the Cardinals got off to such a good start. These Cardinals, after a late rally for a 24-20 home victory over Philadelphia on Sunday, are shining in the Valley of the Sun, a long way from their previous home in St. Louis. They are 6-1 and atop the NFL's best division, the NFC West. ''I can't say enough about the resiliency of our football players,'' coach Bruce Arians said.

NFL Today, Week 8 (The Associated Press)
DeMarco Murray has 913 yards rushing, the third most since 1980 behind Denver's Terrell Davis (1,001 in 1998) and Baltimore's Jamal Lewis (977 in 2003).

The Redskins have lost seven straight prime-time games and are 4-15 on Monday night since 2000. --- STARS Passing -Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers, was 40 for 49 for 522 yards and six touchdown passes in Pittsburgh's 51-34 win over Indianapolis.
Browns tight end Cameron suffers concussion (The Associated Press)
Already missing one Pro Bowler on offense, the Browns lost a second Sunday. Tight end Jordan Cameron suffered a concussion in the first half of Sunday's 23-13 win over the Oakland Raiders. Cameron, who was slowed by a shoulder injury earlier this season, made a diving catch over the middle in the second quarter before he was struck by Raiders safety Brandian Ross. Cameron held on for a 21-yard gain and Ross was given a personal foul for hitting a defenseless receiver.
