Darrius Heyward-Bey, Denarius Moore Injury Updates: Oakland Raiders Looking At Wide Receiver Question Marks

The Oakland Raiders enter Sunday's Week 12 contest against the Chicago Bears short-handed with Darren McFadden and Jacoby Ford both ruled out. Wide receivers Darrius Heyward-Bey and Denarius Moore are both listed as questionable.

DHB is listed as questionable for the game after he suffered what initially appeared to be a serious neck injury against the Minnesota Vikings. He was able to fly home with the team after the game, which lowered the level of concern to some extent. DHB sat out Wednesday's practice and then was limited on Thursday and Friday.

Rookie receiver Denarius Moore was wearing a protective boot on his right foot early in the week and missed all three practices. He missed a couple snaps against the Vikings, but the missed practices were a surprise. He is a game-time decision for the Bears game.

With Ford sidelined and Moore and DHB both dealing with injury issues, reserve wide receivers Chaz Schilens and Louis Murphy will likely get a solid number of targets on Sunday. Schilens has ten receptions for 96 yards and two touchdowns. Murphy has one reception for 23 yards.
