The Cleveland Browns injury report looks mighty small compared to the Oakland Raiders. But that is what you get when you are facing a team coming off of their bye week.

While the Browns list is tiny, the two players that have not been able to practice for them are key. CB Joe Haden is out with a knee injury, and C Alex Mack is recovering from an appendectomy. The Browns are holding out hope that both will be able to play. They could certainly use them. Mack and Haden are two of the Browns best players.

Meanwhile, the Raiders have a whole gaggle of players who missed practice. It is the same players that have been out with the addition of Rock Carwright and Michael Huff. Huff practiced on Tuesday, but apparently his ankle flared up again. Of the players who sat out practice he is the only one I think we can reasonably expect to see on the field on Sunday.

The excellent news is that Rolando McClain returned to practice in a limited fashion on Thursday. If he can't go, Darryl Blackstock would take his place in the starting lineup. This is a somewhat less than optimal scenario.

Louis Murphy has been going full tilt at practice. He should get his first game action of the year this week. It will be interesting to see how Hue Jackson works him into a crowded group of receivers. Check out NFL.com's full practice report for Thursday after the jump....
