Injury Impact Report

Oakland Raiders Injury Impact: 5

While the Raiders are missing few players, their absences (or potential absence) have been impactful.

Hudson and Brown are integral to the Raiders’ offensive plan of a balanced offense in an era of passing. Furthermore, the loss of Abram has been catastrophic to the Raiders’ pass defense. Not many players are hurting, but they are important ones.

Los Angeles Chargers Injury Impact: 7

The Chargers team continues to get healthier, and last week, many of the backups performed better as well.

The depth concerns on the interior of the defensive line (important against a strong rushing attack) have almost been completely erased by Square and Williams. While the Chargers have lost important players along the offensive line, they have had a player return (Russell Okung) and a player step up (Scott Quessenberry).

Still, problems remain. The safety position is razor-thin without Teamer, Phillips, and James. Run-stuffers Mebane and Perryman could be great assets in this game. Hopefully, the Chargers backups and game planning will be enough to overcome an improving Raiders’ team.
