NAPA, Calif. (AP) -JaMarcus Russell was held out of team drills for the second straight practice Wednesday because his throwing elbow was still sore after banging it off the helmet of teammate Darren McFadden.
The Oakland Raiders hoped their franchise quarterback would be healthy enough to practice a day after hurting his elbow. He did some individual drills, working on footwork and tossing a few passes lightly.
But he did not show off his strong arm and on his only long pass of the day he just tossed it high in the air to receiver Todd Watkins instead of throwing it on a line.
Shortly after that, trainer Rod Martin talked to the coaching staff and Russell only watched for the remainder of the day with ice wrapped around the elbow.
``We wanted to watch him throw, and our trainers watched him,'' coach Lane Kiffin said. ``They just felt that he was struggling a little bit with it. He wanted to keep going. We pulled him out.''
Kiffin said he didn't feel this injury would be a long-term issue for Russell, and X-rays showed no problems with the elbow.
