ALAMEDA -- Add defensive tackle Richard Seymour to the list of players who appear unlikely to play for the Raiders on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Seymour, who's suffering from a hamstring strain, missed his second day of practice Thursday, which isn't unusual. Coach Dennis Allen often rests the 12-year NFL veteran as a precaution to make sure he's good to go on game day.
The report on Seymour this time sounded more ominous.
"He couldn't practice today if he had to," Allen said. "We'll see where he is tomorrow."
Seymour has missed three games since joining the Raiders in 2009, all of them during the 2010 season.
When asked if he'd be ready to play against Baltimore, Seymour said, "I don't know, I'm not sure. Hammies are tough. I've had them throughout my career. The only thing you can do is work hard. When it's ready I'll be back."
If Seymour is out, Desmond Bryant would be the likely starter alongside Tommy Kelly, with Lamarr Houston and David Tollefson both having the ability to move inside. Also available is sixth-round draft pick Christo Bilukidi.
Bergstrom said he'll consider Kruger "just another nameless face out there," but when asked if he would execute a cut-block on him, said, "Oh, I'd cut him."
He hasn't played since Week 2 after suffering a groin surgery.
"I feel pretty good," Barnes said. "Obviously I've got some kinks to get out, but I'll get those out the more I'm on the field."
Huff could be playing opposite Ron Bartell, who has been out since breaking a shoulder blade in the opener but has been practicing for two weeks.
The Raiders can't activate Bartell from the "designated for return" injured reserve list until Saturday, at which time they will have to release a player from the 53-man roster.
