Raiders’ Martavis Bryant is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Seahawks after he got the flu as the team traveled to London, where the game will be held.
Bryant was picked by the Raiders weeks after they cut him in the preseason. The 26-year-old has been impressive so far, increasing his stats week after week. After logging 30 yards in his first two games this season, he elevated to 51 yards in week four and then jumped to 91 in the fifth game.
With the wide receiver’s flu, Oakland can only be hopeful he will have felt better and be ready for Sunday’s crucial game. If not ready, the Raiders will rely on their first choice players Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson. The Raiders have also been reliant on Jared Cook when it comes to passing the ball, but their offense hasn’t been good.
Elsewhere, the LA Rams announced on Saturday wide receivers Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks will be available for Sunday’s game against the Broncos after recovering from injuries. Both players had suffered concussions. Another player off the injury list is Panthers’ Greg Olsen who comes back from a foot injury that placed him in the sidelines for one month.
