Raiders left guard Richie Incognito left Monday night’s win over the Saints with an Achilles injury and it is going to keep him off the field a while longer.
Incognito was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday. He will be eligible to return to action after missing three games.
Incognito was listed as a non-participant in practice on the team’s injury report before the roster move, but the team didn’t actually do more than hold a walkthrough. Running back Josh Jacobs (hip), tackle Trent Brown (calf), guard Denzelle Good (thumb/illness), linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral), defensive end Carl Nassib (illness), and tight end Darren Waller (knee) were also estimated to be out of practice.
Thursday’s practice should provide a better idea about which of those players is at risk of missing Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Getting Jacobs and Waller back in action would be a step in the right direction for Las Vegas.
