The Las Vegas Raiders have some momentum on their side after taking down the Denver Broncos for their first win of the season. Las Vegas nearly outscored Denver by double digits despite missing top slot man Hunter Renfrow, who's been sidelined the last two contests due to a concussion.

Heading into Week 5, the Raiders have received some exciting news on the Clemson product.

Renfrow is returning to practice as a non-contact participant on Wednesday, according to head coach Josh McDaniels. This is a great first step for the wide receiver as he works his way back from that head injury.

The Pro Bowler went down in overtime of Las Vegas' Week 2 loss, losing what turned out to be the game-winning fumble for the Arizona Cardinals on the play that originally injured him. He remained one of Derek Carr's top weapons to begin the year despite the arrival of Davante Adams, seeing 16 targets over the first two games, which he turned into a combined 10 catches and 80 yards.

Getting Renfrow back at 100% would be a big boost to the Raiders' offense heading into a matchup against the high-powered Kansas City Chiefs. A ton of points are expected to be scored in this contest, as the 51.5-point total is the highest of the Week 5 slate, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
