Trent Brown reportedly will play in the Raiders' biggest game of their season Sunday.
The right tackle "should be good to go" against the Kansas City Chiefs, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported early Sunday morning, citing a source.
Brown participated in Friday's walk-through, but he was limited in two practices earlier in the week and was listed as questionable heading into Sunday. The 26-year-old did not play in Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers after injuring his knee, and his knee has limited him during most practice weeks this season.

Despite that, Brown has played on all but one offensive snap in each of the last three weeks. Doing the same for Oakland on Sunday will help against the AFC West leaders.
NFL coaches will be allowed to move back into their team facilities beginning Friday, but just when the Raiders’ staff checks into its Henderson headquarters remains to be seen.
Construction of the 335,000-square-foot facility is still being completed, though team officials hope to move into the building this month. Like coaches around the league, the Raiders’ staff has been working remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Moving trucks arrived on Monday to the Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center, the new headquarters, from the previous facility in Alameda, Calif.
Word of warning to anyone wondering how the Raiders are preparing to utilize rookie Lynn Bowden this season: Don’t bother asking him. He isn’t at liberty to say.
“I’m really not permitted to speak about that right now,” Bowden said while taking a break from the Raiders virtual OTA’s.
The mum’s the word response wasn’t relayed out of anger or deceit. The outgoing Bowden can’t wait to get on the field in his first NFL season and is beyond excited to help the Raiders anyway he can. He’s open and frank about all that and doesn’t mind expressing it one bit.
