ALAMEDA, Calif. Doug Flutie Jersey . - Oakland Raiders defensive end LaMarr Woodley has a serious biceps injury and could miss the remainder of the season.Woodley has not practiced since getting injured in Sundays 24-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Interim coach Tony Sparano wouldnt discuss the specific nature of Woodleys situation but acknowledged it is a long-term injury.Yeah, its long-term, Sparano said Thursday. Im not going to sit here and tell you its not. Well make that announcement here whenever were ready to make it. We dont have to do that but for me to sit here and tell you its not (serious), no, I cant do that.The 29-year-old Woodley was one of the Raiders prized acquisitions this past off-season. He and fellow defensive end Justin Tuck were signed to lucrative deals as part of general manager Reggie McKenzies plan to bring in veterans with championship experience.It hasnt worked out so well for winless Oakland.Woodley has five tackles in six games and is without a sack. Tuck has 12 tackles and one sack but has been slowed by a knee injury.Oaklands defence in general has struggled despite McKenzies efforts to revamp the unit.The Raiders head into Sundays home game at Cleveland ranked 22nd in total defence and 29th against the run. Theyre last in third-down efficiency and have just six sacks — only three by defensive linemen.Losing Woodley is just the latest setback for a defence that appeared to be much improved coming out of training camp.C.J. Wilson and Benson Mayowa will likely split playing time while filling in for Woodley. Wilson leads the Raiders with two sacks.More guys are going to get an opportunity, defensive co-ordinator Jason Tarver said. Some of them havent been able to show what they can do yet. Its a good opportunity for them.Benson went in and did some good things. He set edges well, he affected the quarterback some in that game, so it was good to see him step up into that role.How long Woodley — who inked a two-year deal worth $12 million — is out is uncertain, though Sparanos tone and demeanour made it sound as if the veteran defender will be gone a significant amount of time, if not the entire season.Partially torn biceps have an average recovery time of three to four weeks. Full tears requiring surgery require three to four months.Defensively throughout this year its been next man up and thats what it is, Tarver said. Were going to have to roll guys (in) but the physicality, somebodys going to have to step up. Well see who that is.Mayowa had been getting work in as a backup to Tuck before sliding to defensive end when Woodley went out against the Cardinals. He was in on 34 defensive plays against Arizona and another 15 on special teams.Thats more snaps than Ive ever had, Mayowa said. I knew I was going to take more snaps but I didnt know I was going to take that many. Unfortunately, Woodley went down so I had to step up.Sparano expects to use a rotation of players in Woodleys place.Notes: With Khalif Barnes back at practice this week, the Raiders have been experimenting with Menelik Watson at left tackle. Watson, a second-round draft pick in 2013, started the previous two games at right tackle while Barnes recovered from a quad injury. ... CB Carlos Rogers (knee) was limited in practice after sitting out Wednesday.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Caleb Sturgis Jersey .

In a statement released by the team Saturday, coach Doug Marrone said the first-round draft pick would have a "minor knee procedure." The announcement came during the teams day off, and following a 20-16 victory over Minnesota. Its unclear when or how Manuel was hurt. And there had been no indication the rookie first-round draft pick had been bothered by an injury following the game. He took over to start the second half and opened with a 14-play, 80-yard drive capped by a 4-yard touchdown pass to Brad Smith. He finished 10 of 12 for 92 yards in three series. "EJ Manuel had some swelling in his left knee this morning and was examined by our medical staff," Marrone said. "An MRI revealed that he will need to have a minor knee procedure and that has been scheduled. He will miss the remainder of the preseason and then be re-evaluated at that time." The injury is a potentially significant setback for a player regarded the future of the franchise, and the only quarterback selected in the first round in April. He was chosen 16th overall out of Florida State. Manuel is regarded the centre-piece of an off-season offensive overhaul under Marrone. The rookie heaad coach has been in the process of introducing an up-tempo offence with an emphasis on speed. Jason Verrett Jersey. At 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, Manuel is a strong-armed quarterback, who has also has mobility. The injury comes just as Manuel appeared to have taken the edge in an off-season-long quarterback competition with free-agent veteran addition Kevin Kolb. Through two preseason games , Manuel completed 26 of 33 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns, and ran four times for 29 yards. Kolb had just returned to practice last week after missing eight days with a twisted left knee, he hurt while slipping on a wet rubber mat during practice on Aug. 3. In starting against Minnesota on Friday, Kolb got off to a slow start. He finished 13 of 21 for 111 yards passing and an interception. Washington State rookie Jeff Tuel is the third-string quarterback. Kolb will now start against Washington on next Saturday. Kolb signed with the Bills in the off-season after starting 21 of 32 career games played in a six-year career with Philadelphia and Arizona. Hes thrown for 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions while being sacked 77 times in a career that started as a 2nd round draft pick of the Eagles in 2007. Marrone also says backup receiver Kevin Elliott will miss the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee. The Bills return to practice Sunday morning at their training camp facility in suburban Rochester on Sunday.
