The Las Vegas Raiders did not receive any positive coronavirus tests Friday, thus, barring a setback, Sunday’s home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be played at 1:05 p.m. PT.

However, the Raiders will be without safety Johnathan Abram in the game.

The safety will be able to join the team Monday if he doesn’t test positive. Therefore, he and right tackle Trent Brown will not face the Buccaneers.

If none of them test positive Saturday morning then offensive linemen, center Rodney Hudson, tackle Kolton Miller and guard Gabe Jackson and Denzelle Good will be able to re-enter the team facility and play Sunday. Of course, they will all be rusty after they all missed practice all week. Like Abram, the offensive linemen were all in close contact to Brown, who tested positive Wednesday.

Sam Young will likely play for Brown and Jeff Heath and Erik Harris will likely play be at the top of the safety rotation against Tom Brady and crew Sunday.
