ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Raiders are likely to be without starting right tackle Menelik Watson and a key backup for their home opener.Watson missed practice Friday because of a groin injury suffered early in Oaklands opening week win over New Orleans. Matt McCants, who replaced Watson briefly, went down with a knee injury and has been sidelined since.Both linemen are listed as doubtful on the Raiders injury report.Austin Howard, who was inactive against the Saints with an ankle injury suffered in the Raiders final preseason game, is expected to start in place of Watson. Howard started 13 games at right tackle in 2015 after playing right guard the previous season.Hes ready to go, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said.The Raiders season-opening win took its toll on the offensive line.Watson and McCants injuries set off a domino effect that wound up with Donald Penn moving from left tackle to right guard, left guard Kelechi Osemele moving to left tackle and Jon Feliciano coming off the bench to plug the gap at left guard.Center Rodney Hudson and right guard Gabe Jackson also missed time this week with knee injuries but both made it through two consecutive days of practice and are questionable to play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.Del Rio noted earlier this week that the situation in New Orleans had gotten so dire that the Raiders were prepared to use tight end Lee Smith if another injury to the front five had occurred.Oakland should be better prepared to handle things this week. Seventh-round draft pick Vadal Alexander, who was also inactive against the Saints, practiced at both guard and tackle during the preseason and is an option should more injuries occur.Were ready to adjust as we need to, Del Rio said. Weve got good depth, have a good coach working the group. Well be ready to roll.Despite all of the injuries and shuffling up front, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was not sacked and was hit only three times when dropping back to pass.Part of that was due to Penn and Osemele, who continued to play well after changing positions.Osemele, in particular, stood out and made a pivotal block that helped spring rookie running back Jaylen Richard free on his 75-yard touchdown. The 6-foot-5-inch, 330-pound was Oaklands prized free agent addition in the offseason after signing a five-year contract for more than $58 million.Hes a violent football player, Carr said. One of, if not the most, violent football players Ive ever been around, seen, played with, played against, all the above. You love for a guy like that to be protecting you. So, the run game and all that, it helps that but at the same time, I love that hes blocking for me too. It makes me feel safe.Game notes KR/RB Taiwan Jones (concussion) practiced for a second straight day and is questionable.---Online:AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL 24 Oz Standard Mouth Hydro Flask .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch.

The All Blacks are riding high and injury-free but there are selection conundrums ahead of their final home Test of the year against Australia.Lock Brodie Retallick (shoulder) and prop Joe Moody (knee) suffered minor knocks in the record 57-15 whipping of South Africa in Durban but are expected to be fit for the Eden Park clash on October 22.No position will provide greater discussion next week than half-back, where first-choice regular Aaron Smith will be available after serving a one-match ban for a breach of team protocol.Hansen will need to determine if Smith is mentally ready to play, with the classy playmaker having chosen to return home early from South Africa when his involvement in a tryst with a woman in a disabled toilet at Christchurch Airport was exposed.TJ Perenara impressed in the No.9 jersey at Durban, as he did against Argentina a week earlier when Smith was rested.Assistant coach Ian Foster admitted Perenara is making a strong case to hang onto the role, having linked fluently with Hurricanes halves partner Beauden Barrett and shown a nose for the tryline, bagging a double against the Springboks.If you look at him since June hes been trending upwards, Foster told journalists.Hes becomming more of a master of the core skills he needs to do.dddddddddddd You can see the confidence now.Foster said a good example of Perenaras development came after he threw a couple of loose passes in Durban.He lost the grip on the ball but he managed to adjust.Mentally hes showed us he can climb over those little obstacles and keep playing. Its a good sign.Elsewhere, the selectors will be torn between sticking with the players who cut an unbeaten swathe through the Rugby Championship and giving more game time to fringe hopefuls, as was successfully achieved with the likes of rookie centre Anton Lienert-Brown and flankers Ardie Savea, Liam Squire and Matt Todd.Coach Steve Hansen says he wont take anything for granted ahead of a Test which could provide his team with an 18th successive win, surpassing the world record for a tier one nation.I wouldnt get too far ahead of ourselves. If were going to go one step further, weve got to make sure we prepare really well, Hansen said.Australia are a good rugby side. Theyve got a history of turning up when theres a record on the table.
