06:48 AM ET 01.06 | Well, well. Someone using the name JaMarcus Russell is checked into The Palms in Las Vegas the day after Russell was excused from the final team meeting for "personal reasons." If this is the case, this can only help Raiders coach Tom Cable in his meeting next week with Raiders owner Al Davis. Russell is believed to be the major sticking point between Cable, who benched Russell after nine games, and Davis, who preaches patience for his prized No. 1 overall draft pick. Russell has been criticized by Cable publicly, and teammates privately, for not working hard enough off the field. The reason reporters knew about Russell's absence Monday was because of a tip from a teammate in the locker room who couldn't hide his disgust. Cable can take Russell's Vegas-over-team trip to show Davis the extent of his disconnect from the rest of the team.
