Raiders-Broncos inactives: Stacy McGee won’t play, Broncos down another key defensive starter

New, comments
NFL: Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The inactive player list for this AFC West tilt between the Broncos and the Raiders is out and it confirms that Raiders will once again be without the services of DT Stacy McGee. Having a big body out along the defensive line like McGee is never a good thing but at least Oakland got Mario Edwards, Jr. back last week to help ease the pain of McGee being out.

As for the rest of the Raiders inactive list, it could have been copied and pasted from last week with the obvious exception of QB Derek Carr being inactive and Connor Cook being activated as the back up to now starter Matt McGloin. Just like last week T Austin Howard remains a healthy scratch for a 2nd week in a row as well as rookie S Karl Joseph still being sidelined with a toe injury.

Denver isn’t lacking for key injuries of their own though, they will be without a very good defensive starter in LB Brandon Marshall. They also will be without Raider hating S T.J. Ward who is also a key starter on the Broncos “No Fly Zone” defense.
