The only injury intrigue for the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday morning was answered as defensive back Lamarcus Joyner is active for the season finale at the Denver Broncos, while defensive tackle Maurice Hurst is not active.
Both players were listed as questionable on the injury report. Joyner had a thigh injury and Hurst was dealing with a calf issue.
The Raiders will be without tackle Trent Brown and guard Denzelle Good on Sunday. Brown has a knee injury and Good is out with an ankle injury. Both offensive linemen were injured in a Week 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Sam Young will play for Brown and rookie John Simpson will start for Good. If Simpson, a fourth-round pick from Clemson, plays well, he might be a favorite to start next season.
In addition to Brown, Good and Hurst, the Raiders’ other inactive players Sunday are third-string quarterback Nathan Peterman, cornerback Isaiah Johnson and Amik Robertson and safety Erik Harris.
Denver standout pass-rusher Bradley Chubb won’t play because of an ankle injury.
