Raiders Vs. Seahawks: Oakland Drops Preseason Finale 21-3 To Seattle

Coach Dennis Allen rested his starters in the Oakland Raiders' preseason finale at Seattle Thursday night, and the Raiders' reserves couldn't make up for their absence in a 21-3 loss to the Seahawks.

Pretty is was not. far from it actually for the Raiders, who only managed to gain 101 yards of total offense thanks to a final drive led by No. 3 quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Pryor completed 6 of 9 passes for 55 yards, shining better than No. 2 QB Matt Leinart in the loss.

Leinart was 3 of 14 for 11 yards and threw an interception. The Raiders defense surrendered 334 yards of offense.

The Raiders got a good effort from star punter Shane Lechler -- eight punts for a 43.3-yard average -- and backup kicker Eddy Carmona, whose 31-yard field goal prevented a second shutout performance from the offense this preseason.

The Raiders finished 1-3 in the preseason and gained five first downs to the Seahawks' 24 in the game. Before their regular-season opener on Sept. 10, final cuts could come as soon as Friday.

Raiders Vs. Seahawks: Good Thing This Game Is Meaningless For Oakland

The Oakland Raiders are playing like they want to get out of the preseason and look ahead to the NFL season Thursday night in Seattle, trailing 19-0 in the third quarter at CenturyLink Field.

With low-level reserves probably finishing out this game, the Raiders are staring at a 1-3 preseason, with their only win coming last week.

Of course, this game doesn't mean much in terms of getting starters and top players ready for the regular season, this last preseason game is mainly for roster battles to be resolved.

That said, the Raiders had just 46 yards of total offense with 4:29 to play in the third quarter. They had eight passing yards and committed two turnovers.

Mike Goodson leads the Raiders in rushing with six carries for 26 yards. Matt Leinart started at quarterback. The Seahawks have dominated time of possession by more than double the minutes the Raiders have held the ball.

Oakland Raiders Sign Roscoe Parrish, According To Report

The Oakland Raiders have agreed to terms with return specialist Roscoe Parrish, according to SB Nation's Silver And Black Pride. Parrish had spent training camp and the preseason with division rival San Diego Chargers before being released on Monday.

Parrish spent the last seven seasons with the Buffalo Bills after being a second-round draft pick out of the University of Miami in 2005. He has three career return touchdowns, the most recent coming in 2008. Parrish saw his role in the passing game increase in 2010, when he caught 33 passes for 400 yards in just eight games.

The receiver does have a history of injury, as he missed 14 games in 2011 after injuring his ankle in a Week 2 game against the Raiders.

Raiders Injury Update: Sebastian Janikowski's Groin Injury Not Serious

No doubt more than a few Oakland Raiders fans cringed when their star kicker, Sebastian Janikowski, suffered a groin injury trying to make a tackle on a kick return on Saturday against Detroit.

Janikowski is the Raiders' ultimate weapon on offense, a player the team has come to rely on year after year. But fear not Raiders fans, it seems as though SeaBass's injury isn't serious enough to keep him from missing the season opener.

Should Janikowski not be ready, the Raiders could have their emergency call-in kicker waiting in the wings in Eddy Carmona.

Other Raiders player injuries to keep an eye on are DT Richard Seymour (knees, though it's more for rest than being hurt), WRs Jacoby Ford (left foot) and Denarius Moore (right hamstring), LB Aaron Curry (knees), C Stefen Wisniewski (calf), OL Ed Wang (shoulder) and OL Zach Hurd (head).

Quarterback Matt Leinart has an injury to his right index finger which kept him from playing in Saturday's game.


Jacoby Ford Injury: Raiders WR Gets MRI, According To Report

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford underwent an MRI on his ankle today after suffering an injury in the first quarter of Oakland's preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals on Friday night, according to a report from NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk.

Ford has been looking the bounce back from an injury-riddled 2011 campaign, in which he missed eight games. The former Clemson University star had caught two passes for 21 yards before leaving the game with the apparent ankle injury. He burst onto the scene in the NFL as a big play threat during his rookie season of 2010, averaging 18.8 yards a catch for the Raiders. He saw an increased role in the offense last season before going down to injury.
