Eddie Erdelatz named his starting offense today. As mentioned a couple of days ago, Tom Flores would start at quarterback. Joining him in the backfield would be Jack Larscheid, Billy Lott, and Tony Teresa, who would man the flanker spot. On the ends would be Charlie Hardy and Gene Prebola. Ron Sabal and Dalton Truax were to start at the tackles, with Don Manoukian and Wayne Hawkins at guard, and Jim Otto in the middle.

On the practice field, the team ran through their last workout before the game and the next time they put on pads they would be facing the Houston Oilers to get the whole shooting match underway.

The Raiders announced a trade with the Dallas Texans. Quarterback Fran Curci was sent to Dallas in exchange for tackle Dalton Truax. Truax, a Tulane graduate and a third-round pick of the Packers in 1957, but had no regular season experience. Curci, meanwhile, was happy about the opportunity to play for Texans head coach Hank Stram, Curci’s backfield coach at the University of Miami.

A Raiders representative cited a surplus of quarterbacks as the reason for the trade suggested that Truax could play on either the offensive or defensive line for Oakland.
