Raiders vs. Chargers injury report: Tyvon Branch, Mike Brisiel listed as questionable

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders are relatively healthy heading into Week 17 with only two players listed as questionable.

The Oakland Raiders are currently unsure if SS Tyvon Branch (neck/ankle) and G Mike Brisiel (concussion/ankle) will be ready to go for their season finale after listing both as questionable on Friday's injury report.

Branch sat out Wednesday and Thursday's practices before getting a limited session in Friday. As Silver and Black Pride's Levi Damien points out, Branch has followed this exact pattern the past three weeks and has been able to play in the last two so it seems likely he'll suit up.

Brisiel wasn't as fortunate though and sat out Friday, giving him a hat trick of missed practices. With that in mind, it's looking like rookie third-round pick Tony Bergstrom will draw the start against the Chargers.

As for the rest of the injury report, TE David Ausberry (knee), T Khalif Barnes (triceps), LB Miles Burris (knee), DE Jack Crawford (toe), WR Juron Criner (hip) and TE Brandon Myers (shoulder) were all listed as probable for the Raiders' Week 17 contest.

QB Carson Palmer (knee/hamstring) and DB Phillip Adams (groin) have already been ruled out with the latter of the two being placed on I.R.
