The Las Vegas Raiders are getting a boost for their final game of the season as they lifted starting linebacker Nicholas Morrow off the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday.
Morrow missed Saturday night’s home loss to the Miami Dolphins because he was placed on the list last week. He will be able to play at the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Morrow has been one of the Raiders’ better defensive players this season.
Also, defensive end David Irving was taken off the COVID list and he is back on the practice squad. Perhaps the Raiders will activate Irving this week. Irving has been active for two games. He has a total of four tackles with no sacks. He hasn’t played since Week 11.
Meanwhile, starting linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, safety Erik Harris and cornerback Daryl Worley all remain on the COVID list. Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Monday that he was hopeful they would all be able to be lifted off the COVID list and have a chance to play this week.
