After Jakobi Meyers and Chandlers Jones both missed the entire week of practices, the Raiders have ruled both players out for Sunday’s game in Buffalo.

Meyers suffered a concussion late in the season opener against the Broncos and was unable to practice all week.
His loss is significant considering he led the team last week with nine catches on ten targets for 81 yards and two touchdowns.
Candidates to replace Meyers as starting outside receiver include DeAndre Carter and Kristian Wilkerson. Meanwhile we could see increased snaps from Hunter Renfrow and perhaps the first appearance of rookie Tre Tucker who was inactive for the opener.
Jones has not practiced with the team for the past two weeks while he goes through some personal issues that had him putting out some very concerning social media posts. Still no word out his status going forward, but it doesn’t look good.
Last week the defensive end spot was filled by the combo of Malcolm Koonce and rookie Tyree Wilson with defensive tackle Jerry Tillery also sliding outside at times.
All other Raiders players who made appearances on the injury report this week were removed and are good to go.
