Both the Oakland Raiders
and the San Diego Chargers
are playing this Thursday Night Football game on short rest with bruised and battered squads. This has all the makings of one ugly football game taking place tonight.
The Raiders will be missing RB Darren McFadden
as expected. McFadden just can't seem to recover from that foot injury, and the week turnaround was too short for him to get ready for this contest. Also out is S Michael Huff
(ankle injury), who was considered questionable to play this week
QB Jason Campbell, QB Terrelle Pryor, OL Bruce Campbell, CB Chris Johnson, and CB DeMarcus Van Dyke are all listed as being out of action as well.
On their side, the Chargers will be seeing Ryan Matthews back in action. Also not playing: OG Kris Dielman
, WR Malcom Floyd
, WR Bryan Walters
, LB Darryl Gamble
, DE Vaughn Martin
, SS Steve Gregory
, and LB Shaun Phillips
