No new positive COVID-19 tests for Raiders ahead of Week 7

The Las Vegas Raiders are 3-2 on the season, but the team is now dealing with a COVID-19 problem in their locker room following a positive test result for star OT Trent Brown. Safety Johnathan Abram also is now in isolation. "We expect the Buccaneers-Raiders game to be played on Sunday afternoon".

Pelissero, who cited an unnamed source, said the last exposure was on Monday and players were off Tuesday, and that would mean "the mandatory five-day isolation would be over in time", thus potentially clearing the Raiders starting offensive line to return for game day. Brown took part in that practice but has since tested positive.

"I'm concerned", Gruden said Wednesday. "I'm concerned. I'm really more concerned about Trent [and] his health than anything. This is COVID, I am concerned about anything that has it or is near it".

Gruden had the coronavirus in July before the start of training camp.

As a precaution, the Raiders sent home the rest of their starting offensive line - center Rodney Hudson, tackle Kolton Miller, guards Gabe Jackson and Denzelle Good - as well as safety Johnathan Abram for the goal of contact tracing. The situation then escalated when head coach Jon Gruden told reporters that he was sending all five starting offensive linemen home because they apparently were in contact with Brown.

The Raiders also officially signed defensive lineman David Irving to their practice squad. Nobody cares about this or that.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr insisted he would be comfortable with whoever comprises his offensive line because he already has experience with the personnel. So with that said, we came in with the mindset today like, Oh, dang, you feel bad for those guys.
