The Silver and Black are set for a wild card matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. A few players for both the Las Vegas Raiders and the Bengals are on the injury list. As things can change before game day, this is the current status right now.
Who’s Out Currently For The Raiders
For the Raiders, they currently have seven people on the list. Those players include running back Josh Jacobs, who is still nursing a rib injury that occurred during the Colts game; his status is currently questionable.
Another person who is currently on the list is tight end Darren Waller. He returned last week versus the Los Angeles Chargers, and is on the list due to his knee. Two key pieces of the Raiders’ secondary are on the list: cornerback Casey Hayward and safety Trevon Moehrig. Their injuries weren’t disclosed, but they are also questionable to play.
Greg Olson said TE Darren Waller "knocked some of the rust off" Sunday against the Chargers and "looks good" in practice.

Lastly, three players from the defensive line currently appear on the list. Those include linebacker Nicholas Morrow, who has been designated to return from injury reserve with a healed ankle. The other two include defensive tackle Darius Philon, whose season is sadly over due to a knee injury sustained during the victory over the Chargers.
Raider Nation wishes Philon a speedy recovery and asks him to come back next year even stronger. Finally, defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins is on the injury report with an undisclosed issue. His status remains questionable for Saturday.
