With both teams fighting to stay relevant, this week's game between the Oakland Raiders and the New Orleans Saints is huge for each side. Here is the injury report for the Raiders, courtesy of their team website.

Five Raiders did not practice, three more were limited, and three more managed to fully practice.

The most noticeable development is Darrius Heyward-Bey not suiting up with a hamstring issue after being limited on Wednesday. The four others who didn't practice are strong safety Tyvon Branch (neck), running back Mike Goodson (ankle), running back Darren McFadden (ankle) and defensive tackle Richard Seymour (knee/hamstring).

Raiders who were limited in practice include defensive back Matt Giordano (concussion), who didn't practice on Wednesday. Two more Raiders who were limited in practice were tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring) and kicker Sebastian Janikowski (left groin).

Those who fully practiced include offensive tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), tight end Brandon Myers (shoulder/concussion) and fullback Marcel Reece (hamstring). Myers moved from limited practice minutes on Wednesday to full practice minutes on Thursday.
