The Raiders sent five players to get MRIs on Monday morning following a big win over the Houston Texans, including receivers Denarius Moore and Andre Holmes.
Moore had his shoulder scanned for damage after slamming it on the turf attempting to make a catch on Sunday against the Houston Texans. The number one receiver for the Raiders joined a long list of players getting a second look from the doctors following a physical contest in Houston.
Andre Holmes (shoulder), defensive tackle Daniel Muir (knee), end Jason Hunter (foot) and right guard Mike Brisiel (knee) also had MRI’s to check on their statuses for an intriguing Week 12 meeting at home against the Tennessee Titans with the Raiders having a chance to move within one game of .500
Missing Moore and Holmes for practice this week would be a huge blow as the team looks to prepare either Matt McGloin or Terrelle Pryor with the first team offense Sunday.
Brisiel’s results came back negative for extensive damage, putting him in position to play Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The linemen had a strong game on Sunday, blocking downfield for Rashad Jennings on his 80 yard touchdown run that was sprung thanks to the veteran opening up some huge holes for Jennings in the second level. His status is important as the Raiders look to continue to improve their offensive line play as they wait for the return of Jared Veldheer, who was considered as hands down the best Raider on the line before injuring his triceps.
Dennis Allen confirmed in his press conference Monday that the team will reveal more about the status of certain players on Wednesday.
