OL - LV - COV-IR
Week 12 Outlook
Raiders' OT Trent Brown (COVID-19) has been placed on the league's reserve/COVID list and is expected to miss at least a month, per Ian Rapoport.
Brown is also dealing with complications from a pre-game IV bag that hospitalized him and held him out against Cleveland in Week 8. Between these complications and COVID-19, Brown will remain out for the next four weeks. His absence could force the Raiders to shift to a more pass-centric offense instead of relying on RB Josh Jacobs due to an injured and downgraded offensive line.
Trent Brown returned from the COVID-19 reserve list but will not be active for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Brown was expected to play but will not suit up. His absence will hurt Josh Jacobs Derek Carr in a game expected to have heavy winds and cold weather.
The Raiders activated OL Trent Brown from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Brown practiced on Friday for the first time in a few weeks. It's unclear if he'll be ready to suit up for Las Vegas' Week 8 date with the Cleveland Browns.
Las Vegas Raiders offensive lineman Trent Brown has been placed on the reserve/COVID list.
The Las Vegas Raiders were on a bye week, which means that Brown has little to no contact with teammates or team staff over the last several days. The Raiders facility is open and the team will practice today. This is a potentially major blow for a Raiders team that has designs on making the postseason.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting Raiders OT Trent Brown (calf) "could play" in Week 5.
Brown has not played since the season opener. However, considered a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Cheifs, Pelissero is suggesting the standout tackle has a legit chance to play. The Raiders could use Brown's services in Week 5 as the Chiefs' defense is averaging 3.0 sacks per game this season good for seventh-best in the NFL.
