(TSX / STATS) -- NAPA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders were back at practice Tuesday, hoping to hold off a wave of non-football related publicity as running back Marshawn Lynch did not stand for the national anthem in the preseason opener.

So, Lynch's motives aren't clear. It is the latest story in a training camp that has to do with things that aren't taking place on the field, including a continuing holdout by left tackle Donald Penn and a mysterious "shin splints" injury to first-round draft pick Gareon Conley that has kept the cornerback off the field.
