Maurice Hurst, Jalen Richard are questionable to play
Meanwhile, defensive tackle Maurice Hurst is listed as questionable. He practiced on a limited basis all week after missing the past two games with an ankle injury. On Monday, Raiders coach Jon Gruden said he was hopeful both Miller and Hurst would progress well through the week.
Backup running back and kick returner Jalen Richard is also listed as questionable, even though he didn’t practice all week. Richard left the Raiders’ Week 10 win over the Denver Broncos with a chest injury.
Rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs III replaced Richard as primary kick returner, and Ruggs could resume those duties Sunday. Ruggs was drafted to be the Raiders’ version of Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill. Wouldn’t it be something if Ruggs returned a kickoff for a touchdown with Hill on the other sideline?
