Raiders quarterback Jamarcus Russell dismissed as inaccurate a report by CBS analyst Boomer Esiason on Sunday that Russell has been fined for being late to meetings and for being overweight.
"Actually, I haven't heard it," Russell said Thursday of Esiason's claim. "That's a first for me. I don't really play into that, because I'm the guy that needs to be in there and know what it takes for the guys around (me)."
Pressed to clarify, Russell said he has not missed any meetings or been fined for anything.
