The Las Vegas Raiders will have to play Sunday’s game at the Los Angeles Chargers without left tackle Kolton Miller.
Miller was one of the team’s inactive players for the game. He missed all week of practice with an ankle injury. The 2018 first-round pick played every Raiders’ offensive snap in 2019 and through the first seven games of this season.
Brandon Parker, who played well last week at Cleveland at right tackle, will play for Miller. Sam Young will play for Trent Brown at right tackle, as Brown will be out at least another month. Fortunately for the Raiders, Chargers’ star pass-rusher Joey Bosa is injured and he won’t play in the game.
Meanwhile, Las Vegas defensive tackle Maurice Hurst and defensive end Arden Key are out. Hurst suffered an ankle injury last week against the Cleveland Browns and Key has been out with a foot injury for two weeks. The Raiders’ other inactive players Sunday are third-string quarterback Marcus Mariota, safety Dallin Leavitt, running back Theo Riddick and rookie guard John Simpson.
Rookie wide receiver Bryan Edwards is active and will play. He had been out since Week 3 when he suffered an ankle injury at the New England Patriots,
