Las Vegas Raiders made roster moves before their matchup with the Chicago Bears. A few key players will be missing out for the next three weeks.

The cornerback room took the most significant blow with Trayvon Mullen and Damon Arnette heading to IR. Mullen was on his way to the best season of his career and displaying the abilities of a solid NFL corner.
Arnette continued to struggle and hasn’t exhibited first-round caliber talent. Amik Robertson and Keisean Nixon will replace them.
Derek Carrier was the third tight end that allowed Jon Gruden to be versatile with his personnel. Nick Bowers will get his first NFL action after a strong preseason. Hopefully, the former Penn State tight end will help a dreadful run game with Foster Moreau missing key blocks.
