Denarius Moore not practicing following MRI on injured shoulder

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Raiders number one receiver, Denarius Moore, missed practice Wednesday according to media present. Moore was injured Sunday in the team's week 11 win over the Houston Texans. He left the game early with a shoulder injury and was among five Raiders players to receive an MRI on Monday.

Most of the other players to receive MRI's were cleared and were practicing. Among them were OG Mike Brisiel, WR Andre Holmes, and DT Daniel Muir.

The two who were not at practice were Moore and defensive end Jason Hunter, who suffered a foot injury in the game.

Moore scored the game's first touchdown early in the game Sunday on a pass from Matt McGloin from five yards out. He had just one more catch in the game and two on-target drops on six total targets.

He leads all Raiders receivers on the season with 37 catches for 569 yards and 5 touchdowns so his loss would be significant.

According to Dennis Allen, Denarius Moore's injury is not considered serious but could possibly keep him out this week.

"He couldn't practice today. He's really sore," said Allen. "He'll be one of those guys that's gonna be day to day and this will be something that he's gonna have to deal with as we finish out the season. But whenever he can tolerate the pain and be able to push through it, he'll be back. It's nothing... it's not a surgery thing or anything like that."
