Lumpkin inflicted a late hit on Leinart in the third quarter and earned a personal foul on the play. Leinart had to be carted into the locker room with an injury to his right (non-throwing) hand and received two stitches.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday that Leinart would be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Lumpkin has three tackles so far this preseason.
