Raiders Get Receiver Moore Back To Practice

OAKLAND (CBS/AP) – The Oakland Raiders got one of their injured big-play threats back at practice as receiver Denarius Moore took the field with his teammates for the first time since injuring his right foot.

Moore practiced on a limited basis Wednesday as the Raiders (7-6) began preparations for this weekend’s game against Detroit. Fellow receiver Jacoby Ford (left foot) ran on the side but did not practice and running back Darren McFadden (right foot) also remained sidelined for Oakland.

Coach Hue Jackson says that if Moore is able to play this week, it will provide a needed spark to an offense that has struggled to generate big plays without three of its fastest stars. Moore has 24 catches for 410 yards and four touchdowns this season.
