As the weeks have gone on, the Las Vegas Raiders’ injury report seems to have gotten longer and longer. This week is no different as interim head coach Rich Bisaccia has four Raiders questionable to play in the biggest game of the season Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers with the playoffs on the line.

Who’s In and Who’s Out

The good news for the Raiders is that critical players such as LB Denzel Perryman (ankle), C Andre James (ankle), and S Tre’von Moehrig (shoulder) have no injury designation for Sunday, meaning they will suit up despite their injuries.

LB Divine Deablo (shoulder/elbow), TE Daniel Helm (knee), DT Quinton Jefferson (back), TE Foster Moreau (abdomen), CB Keisean Nixon (ribs), LG John Simpson (wrist), FB Sutton Smith (heel), DT Solomon Thomas (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (wrist), are also expected to play through their injuries this weekend and do not have injury designations.

TE Darren Waller (knee/back) returned to practice in a limited fashion this week after missing five games. He is currently listed as questionable for Sunday.

“If (Waller) does go out and play for us, we’re certainly going to be cognizant of where his cardio is,” Bisaccia told the media Friday. Bisaccia also told reporters that the coaching staff will take information from Waller on game day regarding his perception on his ability to play. 

RB Josh Jacobs (ribs), DT Johnathan Hankins (back) and CB Casey Hayward Jr. (ankle) are also questionable to play Sunday night.
