ALAMEDA, CALIF. (AP)_Oakland wide receiver Chaz Schilens practiced without pain for a second straight day but is still likely a week away from returning to the Raiders lineup.

Schilens suffered a broken bone in his left foot during a training camp scrimmage against the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 18. he did individual work Thursday and took part in some team drills while getting his most extensive work since originally getting hurt.

The Raiders are listing Schilens as questionable to play this week against Philadelphia. Oakland coach Tom Cable said the team will continue to start rookies Darrius Heyward-Bey and Louis Murphy and will activate veteran Javon Walker to add depth at receiver.
