As the Oakland Raiders prepare for one of their stiffest tests of the season against the Detroit Lions this Sunday, there were positive signs that one of their playmakers may finally be on the mend as wide receiver Denarius Moore was limited in practice Wednesday, hopefully signaling a return this week.
Moore was seen running routes and catching passes during practice, who's foot sprain has sidelined him which for the last three games. As for Jacoby Ford, he was seen working with trainers at the team's headquarters, but did not participate in practice.
As for the rest of the squad, QB Jason Campbell (collarbone), WR Jacoby Ford (foot), DT John Henderson (knee), S Michael Huff (ankle), CB Chris Johnson (not injury related), RB Taiwan Jones (hamstring), RB Darren McFadden (foot) all did not participate in practice though DT Tommy Kelly (toe), DE Jarvis Moss (shoulder), C Samson Satele (shoulder), WR Chaz Schilens (foot) were limited on Wednesday.
The Lions left a number of players out of Wednesday's practice as well, including CB Aaron Berry (shoulder), S Louis Delmas (knee), CB Justin Durant (hamstring), DE Lawrence Jackson (thigh), RB Kevin Smith (ankle), DE Kyle Vanden Bosch (not injury related), and CB Eric Wright (hamstring). DT Nick Fairley (foot), CB Chris Houston (knee), S Amari Spievey (knee), and DE Willie Young (ankle) were all limited in practice.
