    Rather than create change at two positions, Raiders coach Tom Cable said Wednesday Erik Pears will replace Robert Gallery at left guard when Oakland hosts the Denver Broncos. Cable said Pears has every position along the offensive line in the NFL, but the only game action has been at right and left tackle, where he had 26 starts with Denver in 2006 and 2007. Starting Pears at guard will enable to keep Chris Morris at center. "I think one move rather than two is the way I felt," Cable said. "That was the deciding factor."
