UPDATE Dec. 7, 3:24 p.m. PT: Per Thursday’s injury report, Maxx Crosby (knee) and Kolton Miller (shoulder) missed their second consecutive practice. Brandon Facyson (shin) and Kana’i Mauga (knee) remained limited while Daniel Carlson (illness), John Jenkins (NIR-rest) and Malcolm Koonce (ankle) were added to the report today after not being listed on Wednesday. Carlson and Jenkins missed practice while Koonce was limited.
Las Vegas Raiders star defensive end Maxx Crosby is still dealing with a knee issue and he did not practice Wednesday.
The Raiders host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium. Kickoff is set for 1:05 p.m. PT as the Raiders return from their bye.
Crosby played in a Week 12 home loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on November 26 despite being listed to doubtful to play on the injury report. He was one of two players to be listed as doubtful as play this season and end up playing that week.
So, unless Crosby has suffered a setback, it may be likely he is getting rest with the hopes of him playing Sunday. Crosby has never missed a game since entering the NFL in 2019.
Left tackle Kolton Miller also didn’t practice Wednesday. He re-aggravated a should injury in the loss to the Chiefs in the fourth quarter. He had missed the two previous games. It is not known how badly he re-injured the shoulder.
Meanwhile, the Raiders opened the 21-day period for cornerback Brandon Facyson (shin) and linebacker Kana’i Mauga (knee) from the injured reserve. Facyson hasn’t played this season and Mauga has missed past five games. Both Facyson and Mauga were limited in practice Wednesday.
For Minnesota, as expected, star wide receiver Justin Jefferson practiced fully for the first time since injuring his hamstring in Week 5 and is expected to make his return to game action against the Raiders.
