Raiders Inactives: Rodney Hudson, Trent Brown will play vs. Chargers

OAKLAND -- The Raiders offensive line has played exactly 10 snaps together this season. 

The latest rash of injuries saw center Rodney Hudson miss the Raiders' Week 9 win over the Lions, while right tackle Trent Brown left the game with an injury. Both were listed as questionable ahead of Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Chargers at the Coliseum, but both Hudson and Brown will be active for the key AFC West tilt. 

Facing the Chargers' fearsome pass rush duo of Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, it's imperative the Raiders' offensive line is whole and able to keep quarterback Derek Carr upright as they have done all season. 

The Raiders will be thin along the defensive line Thursday night. Defensive end Arden Key was placed on injured reserve Thursday with a broken foot and defensive end Josh Mauro is inactive with a groin injury.

Raiders injury report: Arden Key to miss significant time with broken foot

Raiders injury report: Arden Key to miss significant time with broken foot

ALAMEDA -- The Raiders are banged up without much time to recover before Thursday night’s game against the L.A. Chargers.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden said three players were set for MRIs on Monday, and a source said the results were mixed.

Further testing confirmed Raiders fears that defensive end Arden Key had suffered a broken foot. He's expected to miss significant time, a real setback for a second-year pro who's starting to finish sacks and make positive strides. He had sacks in back-to-back games, including a third-down takedown in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

The news was better for star right tackle Trent Brown. His MRI showed no significant damage, and there's a chance he could play against the Chargers. He could be questionable for that game, though that won't be known until Wednesday's injury report is released.

Cornerback Daryl Worley has a strained Achilles’ tendon that is not torn. Worley had an MRI but should be OK moving forward, though the quick turnaround puts his status in some question. 

Center Rodney Hudson missed the Lions game with an ankle sprain, and the Raiders aren’t sure if he’ll be able to play against the Chargers. He practiced Friday and was active some in pre-game warmups but ultimately was rendered inactive.

“I don’t know how close he was. He gave it everything he could,” Gruden said of Hudson. “I don’t know his status for this game, either. I’ll cross my fingers. He just couldn’t push off [the injured ankle].”

Players were given Monday off, but the team had to submit an estimated participation report anyway. Nicholas Morrow showed up there with a groin injury.

Also, the Raiders formally activated cornerback Isaiah Johnson off injured reserve. Linebacker Brandon Marshall was waived in a corresponding move. The veteran was back with the team for less than a week. Fellow new linebacker Will Compton was activated over him and played defense and special teams.

Raiders inactives: Rodney Hudson, Keelan Doss won't play vs. Lions

OAKLAND -- After a long road odyssey that took them from Minnesota to Houston, with stops in Indianapolis, London and Green Bay in between, the Raiders finally are back at the Coliseum for a Week 9 matchup Sunday with the Lions. 

At 3-4, the Raiders survived their road trip and still have a chance to make a run at the playoffs, but a win against the Lions is crucial.  

As the second half of their season begins, the Raiders will be without center Rodney Hudson who injured his ankle and had to be carted off during Oakland's Week 8 loss to the Texans. Backup center Andre James was limited all week in practice, but he will be able to go Sunday at the Coliseum. If James gets banged up, left guard Richie Incognito will take over center duties for the Raiders. 

Linebacker Brandon Marshall, who the Raiders re-signed this week, also will be inactive against the Lions. Rookie wide receiver Keelan Doss will be a healthy scratch for the second straight week. 

For the Lions, star cornerback Darius Slay Jr. was questionable all week but he is active, as are defensive tackles Damon "Snacks" Harrison and A'Shawn Robinson.
