Last week, wide receiver Davante Adams was one of several Las Vegas Raiders to come down with the flu bug, and that caused him to miss two out of the team’s three practices heading into the game against the New Orleans Saints. During the contest, Adams looked a bit sluggish and off as he had one of the worst performances of his career, catching just one pass for three yards.
Fast forward to this Wednesday, the superstar wideout was listed on the Raiders' injury report as limited with an illness. That might have raised some concerns as it appeared he was still battling the bug, however, the designation appears to be more cautionary as Adams was a full go in practice yesterday.
Las Vegas also got some good news this week regarding tight end Darren Waller’s hamstring injury that held him out of the Saints game. Waller has been seen running routes on the practice field and was listed as a limited participant on both Wednesday and Thursday, so he appears to be getting healthier as well
The rest of the Raiders' injury report from yesterday was as follows:
- QB, Derek Carr (back): Full
- LB, Divine Deablo (back/wrist): Limited
- DL, Neil Farrell Jr. (knee): Limited
- WR, Mack Hollins (hee): Limited
- CB, Sam Webb (hamstring/back): Full
- G, John Simpson (ankle): Full
- LS, Trent Seig (ankle): Full
As for the Jaguars, their injury report has been pretty short this week as wide receiver/kick returner Jamal Agnew has been the only player listed over the past couple of days, as he’s been limited with a knee.
In other Raiders’ links:
- Ray Guy passes away: the Raiders legend and Hall of Fame punter was 72 years old.
- Trying to find a pass rush: “It always starts with me in terms of just got to figure out a way to coach it better and put them in better spots to create some more negative plays in terms of the pass rush and getting some consistent pressure,” said Vegas’ defensive coordinator, Patrick Graham.
- “Significant” roster changes could be coming: “All is not well in Vegas, and I would expect significant roster changes if things don’t turn around before the end of this season,” ESPN’s Dan Graziano wrote. “There is zero guaranteed money on Derek Carr’s new “contract extension” after this season. Just sayin’.”
- Malik Turner to the practice squad: the wideout will replace defensive end Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa, who was placed on the practice squad reserve/injured list.
