Oakland Raiders Wild Card Injury Report: Cook Looks To Lead Oakland To Second RoundBefore Derek Carr broke his right fibula, the Raiders were a game in front of Kansas City for the AFC West title. Fast-forward a few weeks and it is the Chiefs sitting home and resting this weekend. That rest is something Oakland would have surely loved to have had.
49ers Week 17 Injury Report: Offensive Line Banged Up For Season Finale Against SeattleThe San Francisco 49ers enter the final weekend of the 2016 NFL regular season with a few injury concerns, but with three injured offensive linemen, the offensive game plan for the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium on Sunday could be compromised. Center Marcus Martin and guard Andrew Tiller have been ruled out, while tackle Joe Staley is listed as questionable for the Week 17 matchup against the NFC West Division champions.
49ers Week 16 Injury Report: Torrey Smith Put On IR, While Staley Remains DoubtfulThere are only two games left in the 2016 regular season for the San Francisco 49ers, but the injuries still are hurting the team's chances to win. The team placed concussed wide receiver Torrey Smith on the injured reserve, ending his season early, while offensive lineman Joe Staley is again listed as doubtful for this weekend's game in Los Angeles against the Rams.
49ers Week 15 Injury Report: Torrey Smith Out, Joe Staley Doubtful For Game In AtlantaThe San Francisco 49ers face a daunting task this Sunday in Atlanta as they take on the high-scoring Falcons in the Georgia Dome. It's not likely the 49ers will snap their 12-game losing streak, especially without two starters on offense. Both wide receiver Torrey Smith and offensive lineman Joe Staley didn't practice this week, and the two players are listed as out and doubtful, respectively, for Week 15's game. Otherwise, the San Francisco roster looks relatively healthy for its matchup with the long-time NFC West Division foe from the East Coast.
49ers Week 14 Injury Report: Lynch Questionable, Staley Doubtful For Jets On SundayAs the San Francisco 49ers approach a home game in Week 14 against the New York Jets this Sunday, the team is relatively healthy. That's good news for a team that is 1-11 and trying to avoid setting a franchise-worst mark for losses in a single season. The Jets matchup may be the last good chance for the 49ers to win another game in 2016.
49ers Week 13 Injury Report: San Francisco Still Suffering From Injuries, But Getting HealthierThe San Francisco 49ers have a bad defense this season, and part of the problem has been a lot of injuries. Not only did the 49ers lose the heart and soul of the defense (NaVorro Bowman) earlier this year to a season-ending injury, but linebacker Aaron Lynch has been absent for most of the season due to suspension and injury. The S.F. organization has not been able to fill this void, and Lynch is still questionable for Sunday's game in Chicago.
Raiders Injury Report: Murray and Crabtree Questionable, McGee Again OutSitting in the AFC West catbird's seat at 9-2, the Raiders hold a game lead over Kansas City (8-3), with a two-game edge on defending Super Bowl champion Denver (7-4). That said there is much to be decided before the end of the regular season in the evening hours of New Year's Day.
49ers Week 12 Injury Report: Lynch And Ward Questionable For Dolphins Game On SundayThe San Francisco 49ers have the worst defense in the NFL this season, both in points allowed and yards allowed. However, the team may get a boost on Sunday in Miami against the Dolphins, as linebacker Aaron Lynch could be ready to return from a month-long absence due to an ankle injury. Also, defensive back Jimmie Ward is questionable after experiencing concussion-like symptoms against the New England Patriots last week. The 49ers defense will need all the help it can get on Sunday in Miami.
Raiders Injury Report: Murray, Crabtree See Limited Practice Due To Ankle InjuriesFor the Raiders, the path an AFC West title and more is rather simply laid out. With a one-game lead over both Kansas City and Denver, Oakland (8-2) simply has to win out in order to claim its first division crown in more than a decade.
Raiders Week 11 Injury Report: Oakland Very Healthy For Its MNF Matchup Against HoustonThe Oakland Raiders are 7-2 and tied for first place among AFC West Division teams. Now, thanks to the great timing of its bye week, Oakland also is a very healthy football team as it looks to close strong in the final seven games of the NFL regular season. The Raiders haven't made the playoffs since 2002, but if the roster can stay this healthy, the Silver & Black have a great chance to make it back to meaningful January football for the first time in 14 years.
49ers Week 11 Injury Report: Defense Still Wounded As Brady And Patriots Come CallingFew defenses embrace the challenge of facing quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots offense, especially when injuries have depleted the starting lineup and the backup units. But that's the case for the San Francisco 49ers this weekend as they host the Pats at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. The 49ers have the worst defense in the NFL, and with several defensive players still injured and on the mend, it's not the best time to face Brady and all his offensive weapons.
Raiders Bye Week Injury Report: Oakland In Relatively Good Shape As Bye Week Break BeginsWith a 7-2 record heading into the break, Oakland holds a half-game lead over rival Kansas City (6-2) in the quite competitive AFC West. Denver sits a full game back at 6-3, with San Diego three games back in the basement at 4-5. Oakland has meetings (all on the road) left with its three top rivals.
