Raiders vs Broncos Friday injury report: Lucas Nix, Kevin Burnett return to practice

USA TODAY Sports

The official Friday injury report for the Raiders and Broncos weel 3 Monday night matchup.

Normally the Friday injury report has the player status for Sunday's game. But the Raiders are playing Monday night which means there is one more day to find out the official status.

The status of two Raiders players improved today as offensive guard, Lucas Nix, returned to practice after missing the past two days with an ankle injury he suffered in the team's week two game last week.

After leaving the field early in practice on Thursday, Kevin Burnett was back practicing full. He had an apparent illness of some kind and should be good to go for the game.

The Broncos got tight end Joel Dreessen back at practice earlier this week but today were without tight end Jacob Tamme for non-injury related reasons.
