The Oakland Raiders have a good chance to win a game this weekend when they take on the Arizona Cardinals. It's a shame that chance might be wasted due to injury. 


Oakland is facing the 2-7 Cardinals in Arizona, but it's going to be hard to take them down with little to no firepower on offense as both Martavis Bryant and Jordy Nelson are expected to miss Sunday's contest. 

Derek Carr has struggled at times this season, and that's when he's actually had talent at the wide receiver position on the field.


Oakland was already thin at wide receiver with Amari Cooper now in Dallas. Losing two of their remaining top targets will hurt that much more. Combined, Bryant and Nelson have 44 catches for 619 yards and three touchdowns. Without them, Seth Roberts will now slide into the top spot with Brandon LaFell and Dwayne Harris filling out the rest of the receiving corps.

Not all is lost for Oakland though, their two receiving leaders Jared Cook and Jalen Richard will be suiting up and ready to go.


It's been a disappointing year for Oakland all around and Sunday won't get any easier with these two talented receivers likely on the sidelines.
