The Oakland Raiders Friday injury report is now in and it indeed looks like they will be without the services of several offensive linemen for the Sunday game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Guard Andre Gurode (quadricep), tackle Tony Pashos (hip) and tackle Menelik Watson (calf) all failed to practice this week and all three are listed as doubtful on the Friday injury report. By the looks of things, rookie Matt McCants will likely start at right tackle while Lucas Nix will get the nod at left guard.
Starting safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) failed to practice once again and has now been ruled out for the game. Linebacker Kaluka Maiava (hamstring) was limited once again and is listed as questionable.
Cornerback Tracy Porter (shoulder) and center Stefen Wisniewski (knee) both practiced fully on Friday and both are listed as probable.
