The Raiders added two new players to the injured list on Wednesday-Matt Giordano and Tyvon Branch. But while Giordano has returned to practice, he has been replaced on the sideline by Darrius Heyward-Bey.
But while the Raiders got one starter back on defense, they lost another on offense.
Darrius Heyward-Bey didn't finish practice on Wednesday. He tweaked his hamstring and now that injury has him watching practice and his status for Sunday's game against the Saints is in question. It will depend a lot upon whether he practices on Friday as to whether he is able to give it a go on Sunday.
