Photos from the Raiders Week 13 Friday practice - November 28, 2014.
The Raiders were back on the practice field today in preparation for Sunday's Week 13 match-up with the St. Louis Rams.
After being a limited participant in practice during the week, RB Latavius Murray did not pass the final step in the concussion protocol and was ruled out of Sunday's contest.
S Jonathan Dowling returned to practice on Thursday after missing the past several weeks with a back injury, but Coach Sparano also ruled the rookie out of the Rams game.
G Gabe Jackson, who practiced in a limited capacity during the week, is questionable for Sunday's game.
Additionally, Carlos Rogers and Neiko Thorpe were ruled out after not practicing this week.
With Rogers and Thorpe unable to play on Sunday, the Raiders will once again rely on second-year CB DJ Hayden, who has impressed Coach Sparano since returning to the active roster.
"He's been playing really well I think," said Coach Sparano. "I think he's getting better and better. I think one of the areas that he's getting better in is his fundamentals. Every week I think he learns something different out there."
The Raiders will fly to St. Louis tomorrow to take on the Rams.
Kickoff is scheduled for 10 a.m. PT at the Edward Jones Dome.
