The Las Vegas Raiders have remained in playoff contention despite losing star tight end Darren Waller to injury on Thanksgiving. Now Las Vegas' season all comes down to Week 18, where a win against the Los Angeles Chargers clinches a postseason berth for the Raiders.
The latest update on Waller ahead of this winner-take-all clash is amazing news.
Darren Waller Injury Update
Waller is expected to play on Sunday, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini. That is a huge reinforcement for this offense to get back before the biggest game of the year.
The tight end was off to another great start in 2021, recording 51 receptions, 610 yards and 2 TDs over his first nine games of the year before going down on Thanksgiving.
Wideout Hunter Renfrow has taken on a larger role with Waller out, and this now makes the Raiders' air attack even more deadly with the TE back in the fold.
Las Vegas heads into Sunday night's matchup as 3-point home underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
