The Oakland Raiders may be without starting right guard Mike Brisiel after he was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons with a head injury that appears to be a concussion. There has been no timetable on his recovery or further details on the injury.
Elsewhere in the division, it is unclear whether or not the Kansas City Chiefs will have their starting quarterback, Matt Cassell, back following the team's Week 7 bye to face the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium.
The other two teams in the AFC West, the San Diego Chargers and Denver Broncos, each have significant injuries. The Broncos are without defensive back Tracy Porter as he deals with dizziness and light-headed symptoms while the Chargers are without Jared Gaither, Nate Kaeding, Antonio Garay, Brandon Taylor, Ladarius Green, Jonas Mouton and Shareece Wright for the Monday Night Football contest in San Diego.
Denver is also without Knowshon Moreno, C.J. Davis, Sealver Siliga, Julius Thomas and Steven Johnson.
