Raiders, Eagles Thursday injury report: Raiders thin at tight end

·1 min read

Last week, the Raiders lost Derek Carrier to an injury. He was replaced in the lineup by Nick Bowers. And now Bowers is also injured. The injury to Bowers is serious enough that Interim head coach Rich Bisaccia already ruled him out this week.

“Nick Bowers did not practice today,” Bisaccia said Wednesday. “He’s got something going on with his shoulder and his neck, so we will evaluate as we get going but he will be out this week.”

Bowers and Carrier’s injuries leave just Darren Waller and Foster Moreau as the only active roster tight ends. The only other tight end in the house is Matt Bushman who is on the practice squad. He figures to get elevated this week to add much-needed depth at the position.

Most of the rest of the players dealing with injuries were upgraded on Thursday from their Wednesday status. Including safety Dallin Leavitt (quad) returning to practice.

The Eagles also saw safety Anthony Harris (hands) return to practice.
