It’s official: the Las Vegas Raiders will be without tight end Darren Waller when they face the Houston Texans Sunday. The Pro Bowler has been ruled OUT for the game with a hamstring injury.
Waller got hurt early in the Week 5 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and it appears the bye week wasn’t enough for him to heal. He has 16 catches for 175 yards and one touchdown so far this season.
Two receivers are Questionable for the Raiders with Mack Hollins dealing with a heel injury and Hunter Renfrow a hip injury. LB Jayon Brown is also Questionable with a hamstring injury.
Tight end Foster Moreau was upgraded to a full participant in Friday’s practice, and was removed from the injury report after hurting his knee. Good timing too, as the Raiders are without Waller.
The Texans had a late addition to the injury report this week with DL Jonathan Greenard suffering a calf injury. He missed Friday’s practice and has been ruled OUT as well.
