CBS analyst Charley Casserly said Sunday that Raiders defensive assistant Randy Hanson is scheduled to meet with Napa Valley authorities this week for the second time in regard to allegation that he was assaulted by Raiders coach Tom Cable on Aug. 5.
"I talked to Randy Hanson this past week, and he told me he's sticking to his story that Tom Cable punched him and said he was going to kill him," Casserly said Sunday. "We're not making light of that."
Casserly added that defensive backs coaches Willie Brown and Lionel Washington, as well as defensive coordinator John Marshall, have not corroborated Hanson's claim that he was attacked by Cable during a coaches meeting in Napa, as reported by Yahoo! Sports nine days ago.
"The coaches that were in the room for the incident have not backed up the story at all," Casserly said. "In fact, this week Hanson will meet again with the authorities in Napa Valley to discuss the situation. From the league's point of view, they haven't talked to Randy Hanson at all."
Cable has said that "nothing happened" and that he will be vindicated once the legal process plays out. He said people will understand his side once the case being reviewed by the Napa County District Attorney's Office has been resolved.
On Sunday, Cable said: "You live in America for a reason. The (legal) process will take care of itself with that other stuff. Enough said."
The Raiders kept out their All-Pro cornerback and relied upon Stanford Routt until Asomugha returned midway through the second quarter. He left the game again because of pain and blurred vision.
Routt intercepted a Donovan McNabb pass late in the first quarter and returned it for a touchdown. However, it was negated by a pass-interference penalty on Routt.
Numbing drops and a protective shield didn't help Asomugha much, so he sat out the remainder of the game. He sustained the injury when Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson poked him in the eye while being jammed near the line of scrimmage.
"We had the shield on because the light was killing my eye, so I went back in," Asomugha said. "I was on the field but I couldn't see because it was really blurry. That was a waste of time, so I came back out."
Four plays later, the Raiders were forced to call a timeout because most of the special teams players were late getting on the field for an Eagles punt. Cable slammed his headset to the turf and screamed at special teams coach John Fassel.
No protests were visible inside the stadium. A plane flew over the stadium with a sign that read: "Dog fighter, go home!" Fans booed him when he entered the game.
Of note, the Raiders activated Charlie Frye for the first time this season, giving them three quarterbacks, instead of the customary two.
