Patriots-Raiders Injury Report: Several key Las Vegas players miss practice again


The latest Week 3 injury reports for both the New England Patriots and Las Vegas Raiders are out, and important players for both teams did not participate in Thursday's sessions.

The most notable absences were Raiders running back Josh Jacobs and tight end Darren Waller -- the team's two-best offensive players. Neither player practiced on Wednesday as well.

While it's certainly possible both Jacobs and Waller play and perform at a high level against the Patriots on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium, it's at least a little concerning from Las Vegas' perspective that these players couldn't participate on back-to-back days.

The Patriots added two rookies -- safety Kyle Dugger (ankle) and linebacker Josh Uche (foot) -- to the injury report Thursday. Uche has yet to make his NFL debut.

Starting center David Andrews did not practice for the second consecutive day. He had his injured right hand wrapped on Thursday. That's the hand he uses to snap the ball.
