Hamstring injury likely to keep Gallery out vs. Rams

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Oakland Raiders left guard Robert Gallery is doubtful for Sunday's home opener against the St. Louis Rams with a hamstring injury.

Gallery hasn't practiced all week, and Raiders coach Tom Cable said he isn't optimistic the former first-round draft pick will be healthy enough to play.

Defensive tackle Richard Seymour didn't practice for a third consecutive day with a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable. Running back Michael Bush also is questionable with a broken left thumb.

Nickel cornerback Chris Johnson (neck) and backup safety Hiram Eugene (hamstring) also are questionable.

Cable also said Friday he hadn't decided whether rookie Jared Veldheer will start again at center or if Samson Satele will receive the nod.
