Shell: "I'm The Head Coach Of The Raiders Until Otherwise Informed"
Raiders coach Art Shell isn't worried about his future despite reports he will be fired in the offseason after the team's dismal year. "I am the head coach of the Raiders until I am otherwise informed," Shell said Tuesday. "That's the way I see it." Heading into the season finale at the Jets on Sunday, the Raiders are just 2-13 in Shell's first season back as the team's head coach. The loss to Kansas City on Saturday was Oakland's eighth straight and guaranteed the Raiders would go winless in their own division for the second consecutive season.
Moss Back To Minnesota?
Reports out of Minnesota indicate that has been chatter about Oakland's willingness to trade Randy Moss back to Minnesota. It is believed the Vikings could acquire him for a third-round pick.
Chiefs Keep Slim Playoff Chance Alive
Larry Johnson ran for 137 yards and a touchdown and the Chiefs kept their slim playoff hopes alive by becoming the first team to beat the Raiders eight straight times with a 20-9 victory Saturday night.
Chiefs Visit Struggling Raiders
The Kansas City Chiefs are frustrated, their playoff hopes likely gone. They'll try to stop a three-game losing streak when they visit the struggling Oakland Raiders on Saturday night.
Raiders Reclaim Gabriel
The Raiders brought back Doug Gabriel on Wednesday three months after trading him to New England as insurance for Randy Moss' ankle injury. Gabriel had been slated to start in Oakland before being traded to New England for a fifth-round pick just before the beginning of the season. He was cut this week by the Patriots and claimed by the Raiders because Moss is questionable for Sunday's game against St. Louis. Gabriel is expected to join the Raiders on Thursday and could be used Sunday against the Rams.
Raiders' Moss Questionable With Ankle Injury
Oakland receiver Randy Moss is questionable for the Raiders' game against St. Louis after twisting his ankle. Moss injured the ankle after a 16-yard catch on the second play of the second quarter in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Moss limped off the field and did not return. "When you turn an ankle over like that, it can be difficult, especially when you're a so-called skill guy making those cuts," coach Art Shell said Monday.
