Raiders | Kiffin showing confidence in Henderson

Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers, reports Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin said OT Mario Henderson has had a good week of practice leading up to Week 2. Henderson could start in the game at left tackle in place of OT Kwame Harris (knee). "He did a great job. It was good to see. Sometimes guys, when you put them in the starting lineup, they just start feeling better and there's more confidence and more confident guys they're playing with," Kiffin said. "We've seen that with Mario this week and it's a great test for him to have his first start, if that ends up being the case, in a loud stadium, and to be the backside of JaMarcus. It would be real neat if he could carry it over into the game."
