#Broncos RB Javonte Williams is feared to have suffered a serious knee injury, source said. He'll have an MRI tomorrow to determine the full extent, but there is not a lot of optimism surrounding the injury.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
Russell Wilson through 4 games this season: 80-of-131 (61.1%), 980 passing yards, 4 TD, 1 INT. Geno Smith through 4 games this season: 102-of-132 (77.3%), 1,037 yards, 6 TD, 2 INT. Credit to Geno. He's been excellent.
#Raiders CB Amik Robertson on trash talk with Jerry Jeudy: "I kinda came at him first. ... Me and him trained together coming out in the draft, so we always was chippy; we always used to talk. ... The competitive mode kicked in. ... It kind of elevated my game a little bit."
Biggest concern for Broncos going forward is their running game. Javonte injured Melvin fumbles Mike Boone has 2 NFL starts, none since 2019. Would think RB Devine Ozigbo from practice squad a candidate for Thursday vs. Colts. #9sports
That is the third time a Melvin Gordon fumble has been returned for a touchdown in the last 12 games. It is his fifth fumble in his last five games dating back to last year. Doesn't matter what he can do in pass pro, you cannot play a guy who's fumbling at such an extreme rate.
Courtland Sutton said the most frustrating part of the offense performance was it felt like many of their issues were self-inflicted. Penalties, blocking issues, etc., have created too many third-and-longs. "Those are the things we can control. We set ourselves back."
Total yards since the Brandon McManus missed PAT: Raiders: 144 Broncos: 7

Josey Jewell with the run stuff the Broncos desperately needed in the red zone.

Evero brings K'Waun Williams on nickel blitz. Sack. Another low punt by Cole, another nice return (16 yards) by Washington. #9sports
Albert Okwuegbunam played one snap today and rookie Greg Dulcich is eligible to return from IR as early as Week 5. Albert O headed to healthy scratch territory?
Dre'Mont Jones again with tackle for 3-yard loss. #9sports
D.J. Jones, coming out of concussion protocol, going thru pregame DL drills with no problem. Looks like he's playing. #9sports
Good news: DJ Jones and Dalton Risner are both active and will play.
Wilson to wide open Kendall Hinton. 35 yards, Now Wilson to Jeudy who rolls in for 20 yard TD. EXP blocked. 16-16. 1:24 2Q #9sports

Corliss Waitman picking up right where he left off last week as AFC Special Teams Player of the Week with a 52 yard punt, downing the Raiders at their 13.
Heckuva blitz call from Ejiro Evero to send K'Waun Williams. He gets home for a big-time sack.
Nathaniel Hackett said you can't put the ball on the ground.
Nice open-field stick by Kareem Jackson. Prevents first down. Third and 1 at D29. #9sports
High snap from Jacob Bobenmoyer … Waitman tries to get it down, but McManus misses. Woof. 16-16.
Broncos inactives: Jalen Virgil Tyrie Cleveland Darius Phillips Jonathon Cooper Billy Turner Quinn Meinerz Eyioma Uwazurike
BIG-TIME stop on third down. Big play by Bradley Chubb
Crosby comes free off the edge. Just completely swam around Andrew Beck, who was supposed to get a solid chip before leaking into his route. Denver goes backwards once again and will punt.
Damarri Mathis, rookie from Pitt, gets some time on third down... Also did McDaniels go Scott Frost on that onsides kick attempt? Raiders had momentum, crowd behind them, then gave ball back at 48-yard line. I understand urgency of 0-3, but seemed unnecessary. #Denver7

Time for "Boom or Bust" with @7BOOMERESIASON (get it?) - we ask Boomer whether a particular player will boom or bust today - I'm gonna ask him whether he thinks @raiders Derek Carr will boom or bust v the @Broncos - coming up in less than 5 minutes on TOPS on @CBSSportsNet.
Josh Jacobs gained a career-high 110 rushing yards on 18 carries inside the tackles (+35 rushing yards over expected). Jacobs leads the NFL in both rushing yards (230) & RYOE (+55) on inside runs this season. #DENvsOAK | #RaiderNation pic.twitter.com/IH3beBEUpc
Broncos had kept Darren Waller in check all afternoon, but Carr is able to buy time and find the TE, who slipped by Ronald Darby. Pass rush just not getting there for the most part.
#Raiders pass rusher Maxx Crosby on the strong presence from Broncos fans at Allegiant Stadium: "There was a lot of orange. I didn't like that. That gave me a little extra motivation."
INCREDIBLE touchdown-saving PBU by Pat Surtain on Davante Adams in the end zone. HUGE play.
LB Denzel Perryman is being evaluated for a concussion. #DENvsLV
Zamir White with the biggest play of his young career on a crucial 3rd-and-1.
Nate Hobbs gets #Raiders 3rd sack of season to force punt on Broncos opening drive. That is the 5th sack by a Raiders DB in past 5 seasons: Hobbs 2 Karl Joseph 2 Nevin Lawson 1
Raiders inactives vs. Broncos: WR Hunter Renfrow, TE Foster Moreau, CB Rock Ya-Sin, LG John Simpson, DE Tashawn Bower, DT Neil Farrell, Jr., RB Brittain Brown. null
Daniel Carlson with a rare missed extra point, so #Raiders' lead is 16-10.
#Raiders 25, #Broncos 16, 9:50 to play...will Chandler Jones break through for his first sack as a Raider now with Wilson needing to pass?
#Raiders first-team offensive line pre-game: - LT Kolton Miller - LG Alex Bars - C Andre James - RG Dylan Parham - RT Jermaine Eluemunor It would be their 4th different starting O-line in 4 games. Pretty unusual.
AJ Cole is either outkicking his coverage or not getting any hang time on his punts. Not a good day for him, and Washington is feasting with an average of 22 yards per punt return.
With Tashawn Bower inactive, maybe we see some Malcolm Koonce snaps?
#Raiders have a few options at cornerback. They could start Webb and Robertson outside with Hobbs in the slot. Could also start Webb and Hobbs outside with Robertson in the slot. Also possible that Nickell Robey-Coleman or Javelin Guidry get into the mix. twitter.com/tashanreed/sta…
Hobbs started the game as an outside cornerback for the #Raiders got home on a nickel blitz to force the punt. He moved to slot corner when the defense went to its nickel package. Javelin Guidry took his place outside.
Penalties really hurt the #Raiders offense last week, and that drive was pretty much cooked after Jermaine Eluemunor was flagged for a false start on second down. They'll punt it right back.
