— Linebacker Sio Moore declared inactive, having not sufficiently recovered from a concussion to face the Broncos.
Whatever progress tight end David Ausberry has made with his injured shoulder hasn’t been enough, with the Raiders opting to place the veteran on injured reserve and promote guard Lamar Mady from the practice squad.
Keep up with all the action as the Raiders battle their AFC West rivals Broncos in a Monday Night Football match-up.
Charles Woodson, and Peyton Manning, two of the most decorated and respected players in the NFL, meet on the field for only the fifth time Monday night at Sports Authority Field.
Raiders linebacker Sio Moore was with the team when it arrived in Denver after being involved in an auto accident Saturday morning and being diagnosed with a concussion.

ALAMEDA – Left guard Lucas Nix (ankle) on Friday practiced for the first time since he suffered an ankle injury. Coach Dennis Allen said he isn’t sure yet whether Nix or Andre Gurode will start against the Broncos.
Weak side linebacker Kevin Burnett also returned to practice. He missed most of Thursday’s practice with an illness.

— Allen said he is “leaning toward” starting Brandian Ross at strong safety Monday. Ross has worked with the first-team defense this week and declared himself “ready.”
“It’s the perfect time for me to make an impact on this team,” Ross said. He started one game for the Raiders last season.
Usama Young also is adept at playing strong safety, and he might see some time there against the Broncos, or as an extra defensive back on obvious passing downs.
