The Raiders hit the practice field today for their first full practice in their short week to prepare for the Patriots. Not among them once again was starting slot cornerback Nate Hobbs.

Hobbs has missed the past two games with n ankle injury he suffered in practice just prior to the team’s Week 4 game against the Chargers. The injury clearly wasn’t deemed serious enough initially to place him on injured reserve which would have had him out for four weeks.
The Patriots were without three players in their second practice of the week. Among them were Matt Judon (elbow), WR Demario Douglas (concussion) and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion).
