The Raiders have a tall order in front of them on Sunday in the Packers and their chances of pulling off the upset don’t look much better after a glance at Friday’s injury report.
Their offense will again take the field without three key contributors. Running back Darren McFadden will miss his sixth straight game with a foot injury after another week that saw him unable to get on the practice field. Wide receivers Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore were able to do some work this week, but both were ruled out by the team for game action.
All of that means the roster will look pretty much the same for the Raiders as it did when they were routed by the Dolphins. That doesn’t spell a great outcome for them at Lambeau Field which, in turn, means their best chance of remaining in a tie for the AFC West lead might lay with Caleb Hanie and the Bears.
