All of this began with defensive finish Clelin Ferrell examined optimistic for COVID-19 earlier within the week. Of his shut contacts, many had been his personal defensive teammates, forcing them out of motion as properly.Per ESPN, “Security Johnathan Abram, defensive tackles Maliek Collins, Johnathan Hankins and Kendal Vickers, defensive finish Arden Key and cornerback Isaiah Johnson had been thought-about high-risk shut contacts to Ferrell.”The Raiders protection needs to be close to full power by Sunday nightRaiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther sounded genuinely scared on the prospect of dealing with the Chiefs together with his protection lacking so many key elements.“I don’t understand how we are able to beat these guys with a full lineup at follow, not to mention three-fourths of your lineup not right here all week,” Guenther mentioned Thursday. “I do know one factor, we’re going to indicate up at 5:20 and we’re going to present 100 p.c, as a result of that’s what we do. We’ll get these guys able to play.
