Key players out in Oakland
By Bill Williamson
OAKLAND –- The Raiders will be without three key players Sunday against New England.
Safety Michael Huff (concussion), defensive end Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder) and fullback Marcel Reece (ankle) are all inactive. They were all listed as questionable on the injury report Friday.
Trevor Scott and Jarvis Moss will likely help spell Shaughnessy. Mike Mitchell could play for Huff as the Raiders try to slow down New England quarterback Tom Brady.
As expected, receiver/returner Jacoby Ford is active. He ha missed the past two games with a hamstring injury.
New England is also dealing with injuries. Tight end Araron Hernandez (knee), defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth (back) and offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back) are all out.
