AFC West injury report
By Bill Williamson
Denver fullback Spencer Larsen (ankle) will join running back Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) on the sideline Sunday at Tennessee. Cornerback Andre Goodman (thigh) and right tackle Ryan Harris (ankle) are questionable after being limited all week. Goodman didn’t play last week and Harris missed last week.
In Oakland, Raiders’ starting receivers Louis Murphy and Darrius Heyward-Bey, are listed as questionable to play against the Texans on Sunday. Heyward-Bey was added to the injury report with a groin injury. Oakland coach Tom Cable is hopeful both receivers will play Sunday. Guard Robert Gallery will miss his third straight game with a hamstring injury.
In San Diego, the Chargers will likely play without linebacker Shawne Merriman. He is listed as doubtful with a calf injury that he suffered early against the Seahawks in a loss on Sunday. The Chargers are strapped at linebacker and have very little depth there. The player who replaced Merriman, second-year player Larry English, is out for four weeks after having foot surgery this week. Antwan Applewhite will likely start for Merriman.
Guard Kris Dielman practiced Friday and he is listed as probable to play. He was out with an illness the first two practice days of the week.
