For the second week in a row, the Raiders lose a player to the reserve/COVID-19 list on the same day they are to play a game. This time they lost two players.

Last week it was CB Nate Hobbs who landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list the day of the game. As it happens Hobbs returned to the lineup yesterday.

Today the Raiders lost starting WR Bryan Edwards and backup QB Marcus Mariota to the reserve/COVID-19 list.

To replace them on the roster, the team has activated QB Nathan Peterman and WR Dillon Stoner from the practice squad.

Edwards has appeared in all 14 games this season, starting 11 games. He has 30 receptions for 508 yards and three touchdowns. Stoner has played seven offensive snaps this season with no catches.

Mariota has come in for 12 snaps this season, often in short-yardage situations to run a read/option play. He scored a touchdown in the team’s week 12 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Peterman would just be a standard backup without a designated package as Mariota did, so the playbook will lose an element.
