Las Vegas mostly healthy going into home opener
Las Vegas Raiders rookie defensive end Tyree Wilson practiced on limited basis Friday and he is questionable to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. He is the only Las Vegas player to have an injury status Friday.

Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels told reporters Friday morning that rookie defensive end Tyree Wilson will practice later in the day after having an illness for two days that kept him out of practice. Thus, the first-round pick is on pace to play against Pittsburgh. Also, starting wide receiver Jakobi Meyers has been cleared, as expected, from a concussion that kept him out of the Week 2 38-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. So, he is set to start against the Steelers.

Meyers, who was injured in a 17-16 Week 1 win at Denver, has been making strides all week, so it’s no surprise he is ready to play against the Steelers.
The only real availability question going into Friday was Wilson and now he is on pace to play. Barring a change, it is likely all of Sunday’s inactive decisions will be based on coaching decisions and not health related.
