Report: Raiders Not Optimistic Trent Brown Will Play Against Packers

It’s been a rough week for Trent Brown.

First, it was a civil case filed against him over alleged domestic incidents involving a former girlfriend and now it looks like the $66 million right tackle might not suit up on Sunday against the Packers because of a calf injury.

The Raiders listed Brown as ‘doubtful’ on Friday’s injury report and as of late Saturday night, the team still isn’t optimistic that he’ll play.

As it stands, #Raiders not optimistic about Trent Brown’s availability vs. Packers tomorrow. Will see what Sunday brings.

If Brown can’t play, the Raiders will lean heavily on David Sharpe and possibly Brandon Parker to anchor the right side of the offensive line on Sunday.

Green Bay entered week six ranked sixth in the NFL in sacks with 18, but the Raiders offensive line has given up only 8 sacks this season and one was a Derek Carr scramble for no gain. Nevertheless, the Raiders will probably look to another stat to “carry” them to a win against the Packers…

  1. I think it’s time to give Denzelle Good the respect and money he deserves. He is in the prime of his career and can play any offensive line position except center. Kudos to Gruden, Cable, and Davis for this acusition!
