Tom Cable could find himself in a lot of trouble soon

October 5, 2009 |  7:18 am

Tom Yahoo Sports is reporting that Oakland Raiders Coach Tom Cable may be arrested soon for punching one of his then assistants, Randy Horner, in August and breaking his jaw.

You would think the NFL would suspend Cable if he is arrested, leaving the Raiders without a coach (well, without a guy to do what Al Davis tells him to do). "Everybody is trying to figure out who's going to take over if Tom isn't here," one unnamed source told Yahoo Sports.

This comes on the heels of the San Francisco Chronicle's Scott Ostler guessing that Davis might fire Cable anyway.

Yep, it's a real shame the Raiders left town.
