ALAMEDA – All 53 Raiders on the active roster participated on Tuesday, marking the first time the team has had perfect attendance all season.
A few players were limited, but all are expected to play Sunday’s season finale against Denver.
“I thought we had a good practice,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said. “I think our guys are excited and we’re ready to go out there and compete against the Broncos.”
While talented players like safety Usama Young, linebacker Kaluka Maiava and cornerback D.J. Hayden are on injured reserve and the team isn’t necessarily at full strength, perfect attendance is still rare so close to season’s end.
“I know this is a very physical game,” Pryor said. “When every single player is out there on the 53-man roster that’s a phenomenal thing. You get to be with your teammates and work with your teammates and know that everybody is working their hardest. I’m glad to hear that.”
