The Oakland Raiders started off OK against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, but failed to make the proper halftime adjustments and were absolutely dominated in quarters three and four. They also remained relatively unscathed through the first half of the game, but the injures piled on in the latter half and there are a few to note.
For one, wide receiver Denarius Moore started the game for Oakland despite riding the injury report all week, and ended up leaving the game in the third quarter with cramps. He returned late in the fourth but didn't get many looks. Cornerback Shawntae Spencer may have injured his foot diving to stop a big play (and getting a penalty in the process) and left the game in the fourth quarter.
Kick returner Coye Francies was absolutely blown up by a shoulder-to-helmet hit and left the game in the fourth. He got up and walked off on his own power, but he was still pretty wobbly. There's no information about the severity of those injuries, but it does seem like Oakland is going to make out OK in this one, given that Moore was able to come back during the game. Spencer's injury is mildly worrying of course, given the lack of depth at the CB position for Oakland.
Miami remained relatively unscathed and there is nothing to report on that front.
