The official injury reports have come out for the Raiders versus Chargers Monday Night opener. They are as follows:
WR Jacoby Ford (foot)
G Cooper Carlisle (back), WR Juron Criner (ankle), WR Denarius Moore (hamstring), DT Richard Seymour (knee)
TE David Ausberry (shoulder), K Sebastian Janikowski (left groin), TE Brandon Myers (shoulder), G Stefen Wisniewski (calf)
T Jared Gaither (back), RB Ryan Mathews (shoulder)
DT Antonio Garay (ankle)
Among the Raiders' questionable players, Juron Criner may be the least likely to go. He was still visibly limping in practice. However, Dennis Allen claims he will be ready to go Monday so we'll see. I expect all other questionable and probable players for the Raiders to play.
For the Chargers, Gaither will be replaced at left tackle by undrafted rookie Mike Harris. Ryan Mathews will be replaced at running back by veteran journeyman Ronnie Brown.
