Frye gets start Sunday against Broncos

DENVER (AP) - Charlie Frye will start at quarterback over former starter JaMarcus Russell when the Oakland Raiders visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Coach Tom Cable said in a conference call with Denver media on Wednesday that Russell will be his No. 2 quarterback, with the newly signed J.P. Losman third.

Bruce Gradkowski supplanted Russell as the starter a month ago, but he missed the second half of Oakland's loss to Washington last week with injuries to both knees.

What does Frye's promotion mean to Russell, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2007 draft? "It means he continues to develop," Cable said.
