SAN DIEGO – The Raiders designated six players questionable on their official injury report. All of them are active.
That’s a good thing for the Silver and Black considering the impact players on the list. Receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, linebackers Perry Riley and Malcolm Smith and guard Kelechi Osemele, all starters, were deemed ready to play Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers.
The Raiders also got better on the defensive interior, with tackle Darius Latham back after two games out with an ankle injury.
Strong safety Karl Joseph was ruled out Friday, leaving Nate Allen to start in his place. Offensive linemen Vadal Alexander and Denver Kirkland are healthy scratches, while running back DeAndre Washington is playing after being a healthy inactive the last few weeks.
Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was ruled out earlier in the week, and cornerback Craig Mager is inactive after being considered doubtful.
