Heading into the bye, Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden was hoping that the Raiders may get nearly all of their injured players back for Sunday’s home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
If Wednesday’s practice is any indication, that might not quite happen. The Raiders did get back defensive linemen Maliek Collins and Carl Nassib. Collins missed one game with a shoulder injury and Nassib hurt his big toe in the Week 5 win at Kansas City. So, it is a good sign that they both worked Wednesday. They were both limited.
However, guard Richie Incognito and rookie receiver Bryan Edwards remain out.

Incognito is eligible to return from the injured reserve when he is healthy from his Achilles injury. Edwards has missed two games with an ankle injury. Also, right tackle Trent Brown was put on the reserve/COVID-19 list and he will likely miss Sunday’s game.
It is looking like the Raiders may be without two of their offensive linemen will not face Tampa Bay’s top defense. Also, slot corner LaMarcus Joyner was limited Wednesday with a hamstring injury and reserve cornerback Keisean Nixon did not practice because of a groin injury.
