Sunday, September 18th, 2011 at 8:57 am in Oakland Raiders.
Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and tight end Kevin Boss were among the inactives for today’s game against Buffalo.
Heyward-Bey tweaked a knee during the week, and Boss, although he practiced during the week and was optimistic about facing Buffalo, apparently has not recovered sufficiently.
Other inactives were WR Jacoby Ford, WR Louis Murphy, OT Stephon Heyer and TE David Ausberry.
Heyer, who had a knee injury, was playing in packages with extra linemen, a formation the Raiders figured to use against Buffalo in part because the Bills ranked 32nd against the run in 2011 and because the Raiders are think at wide receiver with Ford, Heyward-Bey and Murphy out.
