Oakland Raiders: Week 5 Injury Report
It is Saturday once again, meaning that the Raiders injury report has been revealed ahead of tomorrow game versus the Houston Texans (3-1).
The Raiders head into week five pretty banged up, but the Texans have there own injury woes. Star wide-out Andre Johnson will miss Sunday’s game and is expected to be out for at least three weeks.
The Texans, who are the favorites to win the AFC South, dominated the Raiders at the line of scrimmage in last season’s 31-24 win at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
With Arian Foster breaking out in week four to the tune of 155 yards and a touchdown on 30 carries, the Raiders must find a way to halt the Texans running game.
The Texans gashed the Raiders for 249 yards on nearly seven yards per carry back on October 3, 2010.
In contrast, the Raiders rushed for just 118 yards on 25 carries.
If the Raiders are to get their revenge in 2011, those rushing totals will surely have to be reversed.
Now then, that’s enough statistics. Here is the Raiders injury report for week five.
