The Raiders declared wide receiver/kick returner Jacoby Ford out of Monday night’s game against the San Diego Chargers.
That leaves the Raiders with only three receivers at 100 percent — Darrius Heyward-Bey, Derek Hagan and Rod Streater. Denarius Moore just returned from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for a little more than a month, and rookie Juron Criner still is bouncing back from an ankle injury.
It seems likely that Moore will be healthy enough to play against the Chargers, even if he isn’t at 100 percent. He looked sharp in practice Friday and is slated to go again tonight.
For now, it seems logical that Heyward-Bey and Moore will be the starters, with Streater and Hagan getting a fair amount of playing time.
– The following players are listed as questionable for Monday night’s game: left guard Cooper Carlisle (back), Criner (ankle), Moore (hamstring) and defensive tackle Richard Seymour (knee).
Tight end David Ausberry (shoulder), kicker Sebastian Janikowski (left groin), tight end Brandon Myers (shoulder) and guard Stefen Wisniewski (calf) are probable.
– Off to practice at the Coliseum, where the Raiders attempt to simulate the conditions in Monday night’s game. I shall post something from the proceedings later tonight.
