Prior to their last game, a Week 7 home win over Philadelphia, the Las Vegas Raiders thought their 53-man roster was completely healthy.

Yet, a late-week injury to star tight end Darren Waller ruined that dream as he sat the game out. However, on Sunday, the Raiders have come out of their bye week with a fully-available 53-man roster. Barring an unannounced injury, all of the inactive players at the New York Giants are healthy scratches. That’s pretty remarkable this deep into the season.

Here are the Raiders’ inactive players for Week 9: Cornerback Amik Robertson, running back Peyton Barber, defensive end Malcolm Koonce, tackle Jackson Barton and defensive tackle Damion Square.

Robertson, a fourth-round pick last year, has fallen out of the playing rotation as he has been replaced by Brandon Facyson. Barber hasn’t been able to get on track since getting hurt several weeks ago and Koonce, a third-round pick, has been inactive all season.

Undrafted rookie wide receiver Dillon Stoner was signed off the practice squad this week and is making his playing debut Sunday. Fellow wide receiver Marcell Ateman was promoted from the practice squad Saturday and he is active as well.

For New York, wide receiver Kenny Golladay is active, but running back Saquon Barkley and receiver Sterling Shepard are both out for the 2-6 Giants.
