Cliff Branch's right hamstring is still too sore for him to practice, and Wednesday, for the first time, Raider Coach Tom Flores raised the possibility of putting him on the injured-reserve list. "He won't be ready this week," Flores said. "And I don't know if he'll be ready next week. At this point, I'm getting concerned. "If we don't see any positive signs, we're going to run out of time. We might be faced with putting him on IR (injured reserve)."

"I think Gandy is learning you have to get the mechanics of pass protection down," Coach Chuck Knox said. "You can't afford to be sloppy at this level, because these pass rushers are too big and too fast."

A large boulder tumbled onto a roadway after a thunderstorm and sheared off the front of a Greyhound bus, killing five people and injuring 14, authorities said today. "I felt an impact . . . a big concussion and (what sounded like) a loud explosion, kind of deafening," said Sean Jones, one of two passengers who escaped injury.

WASHINGTON -- While the majority of banks have improved their finances during the last four years, looming economic threats mean the outlook for the industry remains negative over the next 12 to 18 months, Moody's Investors Service said Tuesday. "Our negative outlook ... reflects a challenging domestic operating environment, with prolonged low interest rates, high unemployment, weak economic growth and fiscal policy uncertainties," said Sean Jones, Moody's senior vice president. "Additionally, the threat of contagion stemming from the European sovereign debt crisis undermines economic recovery in the U.S. and exposes banks to a heightened risk of shocks," he said.
