Status of Raiders QB still uncertain

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Rich Gannon's status for the Oakland Raiders' next game remained uncertain Wednesday after the team
declined to release the results of tests on the MVP quarterback's
bruised throwing shoulder.

Oakland coach Bill Callahan referred all questions about
Gannon's MRI exam to the quarterback, but Gannon refused comment,
instead directing reporters back to Callahan.

Callahan acknowledged that Gannon probably couldn't play if the
Raiders, who are on their bye week, had a game Sunday.

Gannon was injured Monday night in the first half of his team's
loss to the rival Kansas City Chiefs. Backup Marques Tuiasosopo led
Oakland to a fourth-quarter rally but fell short 17-10.

Though last year's league MVP, the 37-year-old Gannon has
stumbled along with the Raiders during the team's 2-5 start.

The Raiders next play Nov. 2 at Detroit.
