Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, TE Richard Gordon Downgraded To "Out"
The Raiders have ruled receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussion, neck strain) and tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Gordon was a late addition to the injury report Friday after practice, with a team spokesman saying he was hurt at practice.
Heyward-Bey wasn't going to play anyway -- he's still focused on coming back fully from the concussion. That means more snaps for Derek Hagan, who had a couple of catches on the Raiders' game-winning drive against the Steelers and may start along with Denarius Moore instead of rookie Rod Streater. Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp said this about Hagan during the week:
"Derek has really taken to the offense pretty well -- Hagan. This week, the last two days, we've had very good practices with the young guys (Streater and fellow rookie Juron Criner), but they are still young guys and I hate to put the burden on a rookie receiver if we don't have to. You'll probably see a rotation with all four of them playing some sort. I've been very impressed with Derek and how quickly he's learned the offense."
