The desperate Las Vegas Raiders began their practice week in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans without standout tight end Darren Waller on Wednesday.
According to many sources, Waller’s backup, Foster Moreau, returned to practice on Wednesday.
Waller sustained a hamstring injury early in the Raiders’ defeat to the Chiefs in Week 5 nine days ago. Two games were missed by Moreau due to a knee ailment. They are, of course, coming off a week of rest. Josh McDaniels, the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, stated that he hopes Waller would play on Sunday, but made no predictions. His condition will be checked throughout the week. If Waller is unable to play this week, Moreau would replace him, barring a setback.
Darren Waller informed National Football League(NFL) Media that he may have trouble playing this week
They received positive injury news on Wednesday when they cleared starting cornerback Anthony Averett (thumb) and receiver/special teamer DJ Turner to practice (ankle).
They are both eligible to return off injured reserve and might be activated in time to play on Sunday. They need Averett even more now that Nate Hobs will be placed on injured reserve this week with a thumb injury. He is required to miss at least four games.
On Wednesday, Moreau was restricted along with linebacker Jayon Brown (who missed the Chiefs game) and starting receiver Mack Hollins.
