Richard Seymour, Wesley Woodyard out for Thursday night

Richard Seymour AP

The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders will both be missing one of their key defensive pieces for the match up of AFC West division rivals on Thursday night.

The Raiders already know they’ll be without defensive end Richard Seymour. Seymour will miss his fifth straight game for the Raiders with knee and hamstring injuries. Seymour last played in Oakland’s 42-32 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 9. Since then, the Raiders are allowing over 36 points a game and have lost four straight games by an average of nearly 21 points a game.

Meanwhile, the Broncos listed linebacker Wesley Woodyard as doubtful to play. Woodyard injured his ankle in the Broncos 31-23 against the Buccaneers on Sunday. Woodyward has had an outstanding year for the Broncos as he’s already compiled 100 tackles for the season with three interceptions and a forced fumble.

Wide receiver Brandon Stokley is listed as questionable for the game with a hip injury. He’s been limited in practice all week for Denver. Cornerback Phillip Adams (concussion) and defensive end Jack Crawford (toe) are questionable for the Raiders.

UPDATE 11:00 p.m. ET: According to the Denver Broncos official twitter account, Woodyard did not travel with the team to Oakland Wednesday night and has been downgraded to out.

    ok fine, no gruden for raiders,

    but still, if we do it reggie mckenzie’s way

    were gonna be 5-11, 6-10, etc the next 2-4 years

    and then mark davis will clean house and issue an apology that the next raiders leadership will promise to bring the raiders to greatness,

    yeah right,

    save us the next 4 years and clean house after the season, get rid of reggie and dennis allen ( the denver D was overrated last year and now its showing)

    BRING US A NEW COACH AND/OR GM THAT HAS A CLUE.

    the product on the field this year is making hue jackson look like vince lombardi.

    carson palmer/mcfadden only 2 players they got.

    Seymour has been out for the year basically. What a fraud. He was actualy worth it at first. By now it’s pretty evident he’s just collecting his paycheck.

    Don’t know what the cap implications are, but wished we would just cut/IR him so he ‘s not wasting up a roster spot.

    We need a good long look at Bryant and Bilikidi(sp?). Maybe even try Houston at DT. That DL needs a major overhaul.

    Matters. Broncos slaughter Jokeland!!

    Have to wonder if Seymour is going on the IR, and will get injury settlement, and be released.

    Word on the street is that Seymour has been cleared but he’s holding himself out. He’s been really bad this year. Like a guy that knows he’s out after this season.

    The Broncos win another game against a team with a 10 ten pick.

    Then they play the Patriots and lose….. again.

    This should be the last season for NFL Network Thursday night games!

    **********************************************

    The Raiders gave up a first rounder for him and went 5-11, 8-8, 8-8, and 3-9 since he went to Oakland. He’s never been worth it, because they paid too high a price and still stunk after they got him (even though obviously it wasn’t all his fault).

    Just a bad move for a team in their position at the time.

    The record isn’t completely attributed to Seymour, so you are wrong. When he first got there, he was a leader. He mentored Bryant in particular. He caused double teams which freed up Kelly and the other defenders.

    Now he’s way past his prime and doesn’t care. Even his teammates can see it most fans.

    And he “led” them to awful records in his time there.

    Look, you can’t give Seymour leadership credit if the team stinks. What did they really accomplish by trading for him. Nothing. They made a win-now move by giving up a high draft pick for him and they’ve won nothing. It was a bad move by a team that’s run poorly.
