Raiders Get Update on Potential Return of Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow in Week 14
The Las Vegas Raiders have won three games in a row and now sit at 5-7 and two games out of the final AFC playoff spot. What's even more encouraging is that the Raiders have done this without two key players on the offensive side of the ball.
Darren Waller Injury Update
Both tight end Darren Waller and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow are eligible to come back from injured reserve this week. However, that doesn't mean they will both be on the field.
Head coach Josh McDaniels said the team will meet on Monday to discuss Waller and Renfrow's status. There was seemingly some concern about putting either player back out on the field without ample practice time before.
After singing a big extension this past offseason Waller has had a disappointing season, only playing in five games. Waller has recorded just 16 catches, 175 yards and one touchdown so far.
Hunter Renfrow Injury Update
Renfrow hasn't fared any better. He's only played in six games, registering 21 catches, 192 yards and no touchdowns. Both of these guys, when healthy, are a huge part of the Raiders' offensive success. If they can come back at 100% for the remainder of the season, Las Vegas might have a chance to run the table (or close to it) and get into the playoffs.
Las Vegas goes up against the Los Angeles Rams in Week13 on Thursday Night Football, where the Raiders are a 5.5-point road favorite, according to FanDuel sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
