Oakland Raiders Injury Report: WR Corp Is Hurting

If you can play receiver, now may be a good time to call-up the Oakland Raiders. Darrius Heyward-Bey didn't finish practice with a knee issue. Jerry McDonald quoted Hue Jackson on the injury. Jackson:

"Obviously, we've got to get him in, check on him, see where we are. Hopefully, he'll be OK. All I know is he didn't finish,"

Hue added that DHB would undergo extensive medical testing.

That doesn't sound good for his chances to play on Sunday. And that leaves the Raiders receivers shockingly thin. Louis Murphy and Jacoby Ford both seem unlikely to play.

If all those guys are out, Nick Miller, Denarius Moore, Chaz Schilens and Derek Hagan are the receivers. Nick Miller had been getting reps with the first team even before DHB's injury. He would be last on my depth chart. 

I'd like to see Hagan and Schilens start. Give Campbell some solid route runners to try and get the passing game into some kind of groove, and then bring in Moore to take a shot at some big plays.

Let's just hope Kevin Boss is able to play.
