The Las Vegas Raiders activated four starting offensive linemen from the COVID-19 list on Saturday after they all tested negative for the coronavirus.

To help us figure out that mess, and give us our weekly advice, Jeff Erickson, co-founder of RotoWire.com, joined The Drive on Thursday afternoon.


Offensive tackle Kolton Miller, guards Denzelle Good and Gabe Jackson, center Rodney Hudson, and safety Johnathan Abram were all placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday. But the game is set to be played because the virus didn't spread beyond Brown and cornerback Damon Arnette, who was placed on the COVID-19 list Monday following a positive test.

Those players are reportedly heading to the reserve/COVID-19 list.


Adam Amin and Mark Schlereth are expected to call the game since they were assigned to the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals game, which will now be shown on NBC.

The next Seahawks home game is scheduled for Sunday, November 1 against the San Francisco 49ers.


"These decisions were made out of an abundance of caution to ensure that a game would be available for fans on Sunday Night Football", the league said in its announcement of the schedule change. It's a big game for the 5-0 Seahawks, who are one of three undefeated teams in the National Football League but have the Rams and Cardinals (both at 4-2) chasing them in their division. If the Raiders are unable to dress at least eight offensive linemen for Sunday's game, they would be allowed a maximum of only 47 active players.
