NFL Injury Report:
Since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut ties with quarterback Josh Freeman, rumors have swirled as to where the former first-round pick would land. Several teams have been mentioned, but Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Oakland Raiders have “definite interest” in Freeman.The Oakland Raiders have a definite interest in Josh Freeman. Moving slowly. Cant make mistake on another QB. #mattflynn #jamarcusrussell.— Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) October 5, 2013Stroud notes that the Raiders are moving slowly as they continue to evaluate a potential addition of Freeman. He adds that they can’t make another mistake at quarterback, referencing Matt Flynn and JaMarcus Russell.Of course, Freeman would represent a much less risky acquisition than Russell or even Flynn. Since he’s been cut, there hasn’t been an extreme amount of interest in him, and he’s viewed as a backup at this point of his career.The Raiders do have Terrelle Pryor, and there’s hope that the youngster will develop into the team’s long-term solution at quarterback. However, as we’ve seen already this season, Pryor is an injury risk based on his style of play, so Oakland would do well to secure a solid No. 2 option at the quarterback position. It’s to be determined if they believe Freeman fits that description.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?

While the Raiders will not miss Flynn at all, his quick departure calls into question general manager Reggie...

In the most important game of the year for both of these teams, the 2-2 Chargers come into Oakland Coliseum to face an upstart Raiders team. After a rough week 4, the Raiders could use an offensive spark, so seeing Terrelle Pryor return should be good news. The Chargers, meanwhile, are a few fourth-quarter blown leads away from being 4-0, thanks to a resurgent year for Philip...
The Oakland A’s and Oakland Raiders are both doing all they can to make O.co Coliseum a winning place, no matter what their playing ground looks like.

For NFL fans on the east coast getting up to your first cup of coffee Monday morning, two things happened in Oakland while you were sleeping. First, there was an NFL game between the Chargers and Raiders which kicked off at 11:35 ET (and ended during your REM stage) and there was an earthquake during the second quarter of the game.
Neither of which anyone on the Right Coast has...

Raiders running back Rashad Jennings sustained a hamstring injury and did not play in the second half against San Diego.Fantasy Spin:Jennings was productive in the first half with 10 carries for 41 yards. If he can't go and always-injured Darren McFadden is still sidelined, the team will have to make do with Jeremy Stewart and fullback Marcel Reece.
The Oakland Raiders are set to play host to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday and a few of their fans have decided to give Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o a proper welcome to the "Black Hole."
However, this isn't just any banner, though. This banner is made to mock the rookie by paying tribute to his dead fake girlfriend. Yeah, like he hasn't seen or heard...
