Raiders’ Asomugha Misses Practice With Ankle Sprain

OAKLAND (AP) — Nnamdi Asomugha missed practice Wednesday but Oakland coach Tom Cable is hopeful the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback will be able to play in the Raiders’ critical AFC showdown with first-place Kansas City this week.

Asomugha injured himself early in the fourth quarter of last Sunday’s 35-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks when he stepped on the foot of wide receiver Golden Tate. Asomugha has not missed a start since sitting out the final game of the 2008 season.

In other news, quarterbacks Jason Campbell and Bruce Gradkowski split reps in practice with Oakland’s first-team offense. Campbell has started the last two games but Cable has said that Gradkowski— who sat out the last three games with a shoulder injury—remains the team’s unquestioned starter when healthy.
