With all the other injury questions for the Raiders, a new one popped up this week. Right tackle Trent Brown has a calf strain that has him officially doubtful for the Raiders game in Green Bay Sunday.
The injury was not expected and had Brown miss practice on Wednesday and Thursday and limited Friday. Gruden originally hoped the injury was minor and that his big right tackle would be back Thursday, but that didn’t happen and now it appears as if he might not play in this game at all.
Should Brown be down, David Sharpe would most likely step in for him at the right tackle spot. After being inactive the first three games of the season, it was Sharpe who got the nod the past two games.
The man next to him could be Gabe Jackson who returned from his knee injury this week at right guard and is officially questionable for the game.
Both Tyrell Williams and Arden Key are OUT.
The Packers will be without their number one receiver as well. Davante Adams didn’t practice all week and his officially OUT. The other two starting receivers are also banged up with Geronimo Allison missing practice all week and officially Doubtful and Marquez Valdes-Scantling returning to practice Friday and officially Questionable.
Both teams’ starting tight ends has injury issues but both are ok and were removed from the injury report
