NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS

Oakland Raiders could start Lamar Mady at guard this week

The Raiders began practice Monday with several non starters playing with the first team.

Backups Lamar Mady and Matt McCants are once again working with the first team for the Raiders (2-4) and right guard Mike Brisiel was back at center after playing there for the first time ever in an NFL game in the 24-7 loss to the Chiefs.

Coach Dennis Allen said it’s too soon to know whether center Stefen Wisniewski, right tackle Tony Pashos or guard/center Andre Gurode will be healthy enough to play Sunday against Pittsburgh.

“I’m hopeful we’ll have more guys back, but I won’t know until Wednesday,” Allen said.
