Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said this week he will continue to raise his right first during the anthem this season, as he did a year ago.

When all of your key starters don't even bother to hit the field in the exhibition opener, which the Raiders lost 20-10 on Saturday night to the Arizona Cardinals.

Jack Del Rio told reporters after the preseason game that he didn't know Lynch was planning on sitting. However, it appears as though the veteran National Football League mind is now on board with whatever it is that his newest offensive weapon decides to do going forward. Running back Marshawn Lynch, fresh out of a one-year retirement, probably won't see much if any action. He said, "This is something I've done for 11 years, it's not a form of anything other than me being myself". "And I mean, if you're really not racist, then you're going to see what he's done, what he's doing, [not] as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have". "You do your thing, and we'll do ours.' So that's a non-issue for me".

In fact, he just wishes he had more time to play Saturday, saying he wanted to "kind of redeem" himself for missing Brown on the deep ball. "There were several guys that didn't play and that was one of them".

"I get to go against really good rushers during the week, and I think that really helps", Veldheer said. I've still got a lot of work to do, especially in pass-blocking and things like that.

Cook played the entire second half, going 10 of 21 for 81 yards. He got beat another time on what should've been a touchdown but Arizona backup quarterback Drew Stanton overthrew the pass. Only 53 will make the team, and after that only a handful will make the practice squad. Lee, a fifth-round pick, was constantly getting blown out of run plays and chasing from behind in coverage on pass plays. Cornerback Gareon Conley, the first-round pick, and the second rounder, safety Obi Melifonwu, are nursing injuries.

"He was ideal", Arians said of his receiver on the play. Alexander, who would've been battling Marshall Newhouse for the right tackle job if Penn was in camp, was beat badly on a play that led to Manuel getting crushed for a nine-yard sack.
