Friday was a day for Raiders players to get healthy. They had several key players come off the injury report altogether including Gareon Conley, Jared Cook, Amari Cooper, and DeAndre Washington.
In fact, there is now only one player on the Raiders’ injury report — Sean Smith.
Smith is one of the team’s top starting corners. He played well in Tennessee in the team’s season opener before missing last Sunday’s game with a neck injury. He practiced full on Wednesday, was limited on Thursday, and was back to being a full participant Friday and is officially listed as questionable. Though Friday Jack Del Rio suggested on Friday that if ‘Probable’ was still an option, the team would have had him listed as such.
Washington is far more banged up, including their top cornerback, Josh Norman who was limited all week with a shoulder injury and is questionable for the game.
Other key players who are questionable include tight end Jordan Reed, linebacker Mason Foster, running back Rob Kelley, and safety Montae Nicholson.
