After working out prior to the game, it has been determined that both Los Angeles Chargers wide receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams will be active for Thursday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
It had been reported that Williams wouldn’t play and Allen would be limited. Now, both will at least be on the field against the Raiders tonight.
Raiders’ backup cornerback Nevin Lawson is inactive as he was ill on Wednesday. With him and starter Damon Arnette out, newcomer Daryl Worley may play extensively along with Keisean Nixon and Isaiah Johnson.
The Raiders ruled put defensive starters, defensive end Clelin Ferrell (shoulder), cornerback Arnette (concussion), safety Johnathan Abram (concussion) and linebacker Nicholas Morrow (concussion) Wednesday. The team’s other inactive players Thursday are third-string quarterback Nathan Peterman and tackle Brandon Parker.
The Raiders will be playing without offensive coordinator Greg Olson, who is out with COVID-19 issues, but head coach Jon Gruden calls plays.
The Raiders also activated two players from the practice squad, including rookie linebacker Javin White, who was a training camp star, but hasn’t made an impact during the season. He is active for the game.
Rashaan Gaulden a safety, activated from practice squad by #Raiders, was a third-round pick by Carolina out of Tennessee in 2018. He was waived last year, played briefly for the New York Giants. Been on Raiders' PS since Nov. 9.— Jerry McDonald (@Jerrymcd) December 17, 2020
