Oakland Raiders: The Bye Week Couldn’t Have Come at a Better Time

November 9, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

The Raiders are coming off of their third straight win, including two wins over divisional opponents. This team is looking exceptional and has been on a roll advancing to above .500 for the first time in years.
Hopes haven't been this high for Raider Nation, this late in the season, since 2002.
But let's face it, this team is battered and weakened. They've paid a hefty price to get those five victories and it shows in the team's numerous injuries.
Right now the Raiders need a bye week more than anything, and luckily that is just what they're getting.
If the Raiders had a game this week their injury report would read:
Nnamdi Asomugha: doubtful, ankle
Hiram Eugene: questionable, pectoral
Bruce Gradkowski: questionable, right shoulder 
John Henderson: out, foot
Darius Heyward-Bey: probable, shoulder
Zach Miller: doubtful, foot 
Louis Murphy: questionable, chest
Samson Satele: probable, knee
