Clarifying its position, Pratt & Whitney in a statement said, "We are working closely with our customers to minimise disruption". However, said the airline, all affected passengers have been accommodated on alternative flights.

The linebacker was hit with four misdemeanor charges - domestic violence, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism - stemming from an incident involving a woman believed to be his fiancee. The Raiders released David Amerson, a starter last season when he was healthy, in February.

Smith, 30, has 426 tackles, 98 passes defended and 14 interceptions through nine National Football League seasons.

The Raiders are releasing cornerback Sean Smith, according to multiple reports, parting with a player who would have been due a significant contract next season and is mired in legal issues.

Countering this, Palace are without a win in six matches and have lost their last three games with the squad shorn of key players. The gaffer hints that he trusts the two forwards but refused to guarantee them a place in the starting line-up against Palace.

Smith's release underscores the Raiders' needs at cornerback this offseason.

When Smith first inked a four-year contract with the Raiders for a whopping $38 million, it was enough to stave off every other suitor in the team's hopes to remedy their pass defense. Starting cornerback TJ Carrie and safety Reggie Nelson are both scheduled to become unrestricted free agents on Wednesday.
