Five Raiders need MRIs
By Paul Gutierrez
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- While five Oakland Raiders players had to take MRI exams Monday, only one result was known by the time of coach Dennis Allen’s weekly news conference.
Right guard Mike Brisiel left the Raiders’ 28-23 victory at the Houston Texans on Sunday with a knee injury, but Allen said the MRI came back clean.
“He should be fine,” Allen said.
Receivers Andre Holmes, who caught one pass for 33 yards but had another long diving grab ruled out of bounds, and Denarius Moore, who was the recipient of quarterback Matt McGloin's first NFL touchdown pass, a five-yarder, both had injured shoulders and were awaiting their results. Same with defensive end Jason Hunter, who injured a foot, and defensive tackle Daniel Muir, who had a knee injury.
“We’ll have an update on all those guys basically on Wednesday,” Allen said.
Allen gave the players the day off Monday.
