The Raiders named seven players inactive for Sunday morning’s game against the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Sio Moore was not among them. The rookie outside linebacker was questionable with a foot injury, but he was deemed healthy enough to start. That gives the Raiders depth at the position, with Kaluka Maiava serving as top reserve for all three spots.

Quarterback Matt McGloin, defensive end Ryan Robinson, tackle Menelik Watson, guard Antoine McClain, defensive lineman Brian Sanford, receiver Juron Criner and tight end David Ausberry will not play in this game.

The inactive list includes Watson and Ausberry, who were ruled out with injury and did not make the trip east. The inactive choices leave the Raiders with just three defensive ends. Only Lamarr Houston, Jason Hunter and Jack Crawford are available to rush the passer.
