As the Bills deal with several injuries on the offensive side of the ball, their opponent this weekend, the Oakland Raiders, have missed several key defenders the past two days of practice.

Two defensive linemen, Stacy McGee and Darius Latham, along with the team’s starting nickel cornerback, DJ Hayden, all sat out both Wednesday’s and Thursday’s practice sessions.

Both McGee and Latham are dealing with ankle injuries while Hayden is nursing an injured hamstring.  According to The Mercury News, the rookie Latham was seen in the locker room earlier in the week with a boot on his right foot and walking with the use of a cane.  He has started in all nine games he’s played in this season.

The team’s starting QB, Derek Carr, was listed as a full participant both days despite dislocating his pinky finger Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

Here is the Raiders complete participation report so far for the week:
