It's Sunday, which means it's time for some NFL football.
The Oakland Raiders are slated to kickoff their first division battle of the 2017 campaign on the road against the Denver Broncos. There's certainly no love lost between these teams, and it should be a fist fight from start to finish.
Both teams currently have a record of 2-1, and are tied for second in the AFC West behind the Kansas City Chiefs. While quarterback Derek Carr will undoubtedly have his hands full with a strong Broncos secondary, Offensive Coordinator Todd Downing will try to get the group rolling early.
Prior to today's 1:25 p.m. PST kickoff, here's a look at the players who won't be suiting up today.
Cornerback Gareon Conley
Quarterback Connor Cook
Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree
Defensive Tackle Darius Latham
Safety Keith McGill II
Tackle David Sharpe
Tackle Jylan Ware
Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree won't be taking the field this afternoon, but even with his absence, Carr still has plenty of other weapons he can throw to. Last season, No. 15 started in all sixteen games, and he hasn't missed a game since 2013 when he was still a member of the San Francisco 49ers. On the year, the former Texas Tech Red Raider has 170 yards receiving, and three touchdowns.
