Raiders fined by NFL for breaking injury report rules

In addition to the myriad issues surrounding the Raiders on their bye week, it looks like the team is now in hot water for failing to comply with NFL rules regarding their injury report.

Raiders’ Jon Feliciano gets another start with LG Kelechi Osemele (knee) inactive

LONDON - Left guard Kelechi Osemele made the trip to London with the Raiders but will miss a second consecutive game with a knee injury. That was expected after Gruden said Osemele’s knee hadn’t improved much by mid-week. The Raiders will have Jon Feliciano starting again at left guard against the Seattle Seahawks. Feliciano drew mostly positive reviews for his start against the Chargers last weekend but had a costly false start penalty in the red zone. The left side of the offensive line struggled somewhat in the game with Kolton Miller playing through a knee injury. Receiver Martavis...

Injury to insult: Raiders beaten down and beaten up in London ‘we have to own it’

There wasn’t any part of the Raiders that was functioning well Sunday in London. As bad as they looked last week in LA against the Chargers, they looked exponentially worse at Wembley against the Seahawks. Their downward slide has been a swift one. There was no sign of the promise they showed in the first half in the first three weeks or the late heroics they showed in their only win against the Browns. They also came in limping and left debilitated. All week the Raiders talked about how good the Seahawks were at running the ball. They game planned for it. And the Seahawks came right out...

If he can’t go, we’ll go with [Jon] Feliciano again.

Ready or not Raiders to start Rookies at tackle spots versus Chargers

Last April the Raiders went tackle with two of their top three picks — Kolton Miler at 14 overall and Brandon Parker in the third round. Now in just the fifth game of the season those two rookies will be starting across from each other. Top pick Kolton Miller stepped in at tackle in the offseason while Donald Penn recovered from foot surgery. Once Penn returned, right tackle Breno Giacomini had been lost to injury, so the team opted to move Penn to right tackle — a position he had never started a game in his long career — and keep Miller at left tackle.
