Something the Oakland Raiders can definitely use is some good news, especially after losing two games in a row.
It has not been easy for the offense the past two weeks as of the two most potent weapons were missing. The good news is for the Raiders is wide receiver Denarius Moore returned to practice on Wednesday. Moore has lit up the offense this season both with Campbell and Palmer in the passing game in this season. His injury accrued against the Minnesota Vikings on November 20th and he’s been out since with a foot and ankle injury and now is set to return this Sunday at home against the Lions
Other players hoping to return are Jacoby Ford and running back Taiwan Jones. Each of them did not suit up for practice but were able to work on some drills with a trainer. Ford has also been an important aspect of the Raiders’ offense armory but has been battling a left foot injury for weeks now. Jones place a balance in the Raiders running game but in the last two weeks he bothered by hamstring injury both players seem to be making progress and hope to be back on the field soon.
Other injuries to report on the Raiders are mostly on the defensive side of the ball and begin with safety Michael Huff (hamstring), defense end John Henderson (knee), cornerback Chris Johnson were all not seen at practice. However, limited participation came to players like defense tackle Tommy Kelly (toe), defense end Jarvis Moss (shoulder).
Also expected to return to the offense unit this Sunday is, center Samson Satele (shoulder) and wide receiver Chaz Schilens (foot).
But of Raider Nation is still awaiting the return running back Darren McFadden of most potent weapon on the offense to make his return from his (foot) injury for now there is still no indication on his return but Coach Hue Jackson feels confident he will return before season end.
