Richard Seymour unlikely to play against Ravens


A hamstring injury could force Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour to miss this Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

According to Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group, Seymour appears unlikely to play after missing a second straight day of practice with a hamstring strain.

“He couldn’t practice today if he had to,” [Raiders head coach Dennis] Allen said. “We’ll see where he is tomorrow.”

Per McDonald, Seymour didn’t seem too optimistic on his availability either.

“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,” Seymour said.

Desmond Bryant would likely get the start in Seymour’s place if he is unable to play. Seymour has recorded 15 tackles with three sacks and a fumble recovery in eight games for the Raiders this season.
