It appears the Las Vegas Raiders may be without three starting offensive linemen for the second straight game. Left tackle Kolton Miller missed practice again Friday, likely decreasing his chances of playing against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
Miller has missed six straight practices, and he missed the Raiders’ Week 9 win over the Los Angeles Chargers with an ankle injury. The Raiders are also without right tackle Trent Brown, who is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and left guard Richie Incognito, who has been on the injured reserve since September with an Achilles injury. Further complicating things on the line, right guard Gabe Jackson is questionable to play Sunday with an illness that kept him out of practice Friday.
Kolton Miller (ankle) is out again for the #Raiders today and hasn't practiced for two weeks in a row. Doesn't bode well for his availability Sunday.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) November 13, 2020
The Raiders have played just three snaps this season with all five starting offensive linemen. However, the unit has played well despite the injury woes. Sam Young has been playing for Brown, Denzelle Good has been playing for Incognito and Brandon Parker played for Miller last week.
Meanwhile, Raiders’ defensive tackle Maurice Hurst missed practice again with an ankle injury that kept him out of last week’s game, and he is out Sunday,
This post will be updated after the Raiders’ injury report is released later Friday.
UPDATE: Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Miller is doubtful to play Sunday. He also said he expects cornerback Trayvon Mullen (hamstring) to play. Gruden said he is unsure when Incognito will return.
