The Oakland Raiders had two of their biggest weapons get workouts in on Monday in hopes of getting them ready for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore have missed time with sprains and are still looking to return to practice this week.
Ford has been dealing with a sprained foot that has sidelined him for a month now, while Denarius Moore has been out for three weeks with a sprained ankle. The Raiders offense has missed them a tremendous amount in recent weeks. They face a Lions offense this Sunday that can be as explosive as most in the league, so once again the Raiders will need all hands on deck.
The Raiders find themselves a game back of the Denver Broncos in the AFC West and a game back of the New York Jets in the wildcard race. Their offense has been in a position to do just enough at times, but the last couple weeks the injuries have caught up with Oakland. If they can at least get Ford and Moore back, this offense gains a whole new dynamic.
