Although Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore hadn't practiced since Aug. 4 until Thursday, a chance exists that he will play Monday night versus the Chargers. Moore was limited again during Friday's practice. Head coach Dennis Allen said he "looked better today."
The Oakland Tribune's Steve Corkan wrote that Moore "looked near full strength during the portion of practice open to the media. Moore made sharp cuts, showed strong burst off the line of scrimmage and even made a leaping catch."
Through it all, Moore remains a game-time decision. As our Matt De Lima wrote earlier today, the risk outweighs the reward of starting Moore in Week 1. Yes, he has tremendous big-play ability. But given the sensitive nature of hamstring injuries, it's best to just leave him on your bench and see if he can get through a full 60 minutes without suffering a re-injury. Darrius Heyward-Bey and Rod Streater will likely be the Raiders' top WRs Monday.
