According to a source, the starting five offensive line for the Las Vegas Raiders against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football will be, from left to right, Kolton Miller, Alex Bars, Andre James, Dylan Parham and Jermaine Eluemunor.
This week Eluemunor gets the start at right tackle despite speculation that rookie Thayer Munford Jr. would start. Per Pro Football Reference, Munford played 44 offensive snaps to Eluemunor’s 31 in the team’s Week 4 win against the Broncos, but head coach Josh McDaniels and his staff are trusting the veteran with the starting job against the Chiefs.
LT Kolton Miller has been the only player that has started all four previous games for the Raiders on the offensive line. C Andre James would have joined Miller as a starter in each game, but a concussion in their Week 1 loss against the Los Angeles Chargers sidelined James for two weeks.
G Alex Bars is slated to start his third consecutive game at left guard. It looks like Bars has that spot on locked down for the near future.
Rookie G Dylan Parham is set to start his fourth game in a row for the Raiders on Monday Night Football. The only game Parham didn’t start was Week 1. He played the first two games of his career at center replacing James. Since James has been back, Parham has played right guard.
The Raiders lost swing tackle Justin Herron this week as he tore his ACL during practice and is out for the rest of the season.
