ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) – Despite being one of Oakland’s best defensive players his first two years in the NFL, Sio Moore is just fighting for a spot on the team this season. After missing the […]
Football is back!!! But not really. Both local NFL teams kick off their preseason schedules this weekend, and every year I feel the same. I pop the proverbial popcorn, cook up the (for real) pizza, […]
The Oakland Raiders have placed linebacker Sio Moore on season-ending injured reserve with a hip injury. Oakland signed cornerback Chance Casey off the practice squad of the San Francisco 49ers to take Moore’s place on […]
Six different Oakland Raiders were unable to practice on Thursday, leaving their statuses for Sunday’s game in Kansas City questionable. That could hurt the Silver & Black’s chances of securing a season sweep over their reeling AFC West rivals this weekend. But don’t worry: Linebacker Sio Moore will be on the field.

Regardless of whether the Oakland Raiders win a game this season or not, the year is lost. It’s time to look at next season’s roster, anticipating that a new general manager and a new permanent coach will be in charge of the Silver & Black for 2015 and beyond.
So much for staying healthy after the bye week. The Oakland Raiders’ official injury list almost doubled this week from last, as eight players are nursing sore body parts. How that will impact Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at the Coliseum is still not clear.
The NFL bye week always is a welcomed sight for injured players, and the Oakland Raiders used their bye week to get a lot healthier—especially on the defensive side. This is good, as next up for the Silver & Black is a visit from the San Diego Chargers and their high-powered offense.
The Oakland Raiders defense needs all the help it can get every game, so when three linebackers could possibly miss the next contest, it’s something to be concerned about for the team. Heading into Sunday’s Wembley Stadium matchup against the Miami Dolphins, the Silver & Black also will be without backup quarterback Matt Schaub.
The Oakland Raiders were driving for the tying touchdown against the New England Patriots on the road late in the fourth quarter when disaster struck: a deflected interception ended the game with the Raiders coming up short, 16-9. The defense did its job for once; the offense did not.
The Oakland Raiders defense isn’t very good even when healthy, but with multiple injuries to key players on the defensive side of the ball, the Silver & Black may be in for a long day on Sunday in New England.
