As if the receiving corps for these two teams wasn’t in bad enough shape, their top tight ends are also banged up. Packers tight end Jimmy Graham has not practiced this week and Thursday Raiders newly extended tight end Darren Waller injured his foot, adding him to the injury report as well.
For the second straight practice, Tyrell Williams was not on the field. He has a plantar fascia injury and Gruden didn’t sound optimistic his top receiver would be back soon.
The Packers were once again without their top three receivers Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Geronimo Allison.
With the Raiders already releasing three of their expected top receivers earlier in the season, I don’t think I’ve seen two teams facing each other in worse shape in their receiving corps than these two teams.
Also added to the injury report for the Packers was cornerbacks Kevin King and Tramon Williams and defensive lineman Kenny Clark. King (knee/groin) was limited and Williams (knee) and Clark (calf) both missed practice.
