Oakland Raiders vs. Buffalo Bills Injury Update: Raiders Missing Key Pieces at Practice

Getty Images

Richard Seymour, Michael Huff, Jacoby and Jacoby Ford all sat out their second straight day of practice on Thursday. That is a bit worrisome. Seymour has a rib problem, Huff a groin and Ford a hammy. 

I am confident Seymour will play. He got injured in the second half of the Broncos game and returned later that game. He was healthy enough to throw out the first pitch at the A's game. It would seem to me that Seymour sitting out practice is to just rest sore ribs.

Ford will probably be out. Even if it is just a minor tweak to the hamstring, returning in one week would likely be too risky. And hopefully it is just a minor tweak.

Jump over for more injury updates from both teams....


Who knows about Huff. If it is just a minor groin injury, he could be back. However, those things can also linger. Louis Murphy has been out since the start of training camp with a groin injury.

If seems very unlikely that either Murphy or Mike Mitchell will be back for this game.

Darren McFadden (shoulder), Kevin Boss (knee), Chris Johnson (groin) and Jarvis Moss (foot) were all limited in practice. The fact that they were working out at all is definitely a good sign for them being able to play. McFadden, like Seymour, was injured in the Broncos game and returned. I am sure he will play.

Chris Johnson likely wouldn't be practicing at all if his groin was bad enough to keep him out of action. I have no idea about Moss, and Boss is probably 50/50. Boss' return would be a huge positive. The passing game needs him. He will also be invaluable in the red zone offense for his blocking as much as his receiving.

Jason Campbell (foot) and Joe Porter (concussion) both had full participation in practice, and there should be no concerns of them being available.

Bills Injuries

WR Marcus Easley (illness), LB Robert Eddins (foot) and CB Terrence McGee (hamstring) all sat out of Thursday's practice.

McGee is the Bills starting corner. Drayton Florence took McGee's spot after he was injured on the first series of the Chiefs game.

Eddins and Easley are bottom of the depth chart players.

LB Arthur Moats (knee) and DT Torell Troup (Back) were both limited in practice. Both players are backups.

*Update: WR Steve Johnson was held out of Thursday's practice for, as of yet, unknown reasons. a
