As bad as Carson Palmer's three-interception debut with the Oakland Raiders looked, he views it as a valuable teaching tool.

Palmer took the field Tuesday for his first practice since that debacle to start what promises to be a learning intensive bye week.

Palmer had just three practices with the Raiders before making his debut in Sunday's 28-0 loss to Kansas City.

So the task this week will be to learn the offense, build a rapport on and off the field with his receivers and get back into football shape after more than nine months away from the game.

The Raiders traded up to two first round draft picks for Palmer last week after starting quarterback Jason Campbell was injured and lost for the year.
