The Raiders are running out of healthy players on defense, thus, chances.
Trailing 21-7 to the Vikings, the Raiders have suffered a number of injuries already.
Linebacker Vontaze Burfict just went to the locker room to have an elbow injury evaluated, and they’ve announced he’s questionable to return.
Without him, they’ll likely struggle even more, as he’s the guy they’ve built a defense around.
Also, defensive lineman Jonathan Hankins was just getting tended to by the team’s athletic training staff.
