After a stress-free bye week, the Week 7 game for the Raiders against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers suddenly is in question. Starting right tackle Trent Brown was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week and the entire offensive line was forced to miss practice on Wednesday.

The expectation was that the group would rejoin on Thursday, but that does not appear to be the case. According to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, all five offensive linemen are set to miss their second consecutive day of practice as well as strong safety Johnathan Abram.

The Raiders still conducting contact tracing and since several of the offensive linemen were in direct contact with Trent Brown, they need to be quarantined for the next few days. Their status for Sunday is officially in doubt. We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
