The Oakland Raiders have a short turnaround this week between their Sunday loss in San Diego and their Thursday night matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs at the Coliseum. That means not a lot of healing time—both for those who played against the Chargers and those who did not.
It never seems to end for the 2014 Oakland Raiders: They always have a ton of players on the official injury report each week. That’s not the primary reason the Silver & Black can’t win a game, of course, but it’s been a consistent theme this year for the last winless team in the NFL.
Not much changes for the Oakland Raiders these days: They keep losing games, and they can’t get healthy, either. With their talent level, the Silver & Black can ill afford to be injured. But now the last winless team in the NFL faces the high-scoring Denver Broncos at home, and the roster is banged up and bruised still.
Do the Oakland Raiders have nine bodies to spare on Halloween weekend for their game in Seattle against the defending champions? Of course not. But that’s the spooky truth the Silver & Black faces as they prepare for the Seahawks this Sunday.

The last thing the 2014 Oakland Raiders need is more injuries to their defense, but that’s what they get this week as they prepare to play the Cleveland Browns Sunday on the road. If the Silver & Black can’t stop anyone’s offense, they’ll never win a game this year.
When you’re picked by everyone to finish last in your division, it’s a good thing to be heading into Week 1 of the NFL season with a healthy roster.
