Raiders vs Chargers inactives: Antonio Gates inactive, Keenan Allen is ACTIVE

New, comments
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The inactives are out for the Raiders and Chargers and the Raiders catch a bit of a break as they won't be facing All Pro tight end Antonio Gates. He was questionable for the game with a reported MCL sprain. Also questionable with a hip injury was Keenan Allen who leads the league in catches.

Manti Te'O was Doubtful coming into the game. He is inactive and will be replaced by rookie linebacker Denzel Perryman. Weddle will be replaced in the lineup by safety Jimmy Wilson. And Trevor Robinson will once again start at center for Chris Watt.

For the Raiders, Rod Streater is once again a healthy scratch in favor of Seth Roberts. Last week the Raiders signed Walt Powell as a return man. He is inactive for the game so we will have to wait to see if he can contribute to the Raiders' lackluster return game. Taiwan Jones will likely be the primary kick returner for the Raiders.

Starting in place of Justin Ellis will be Stacy McGee.
