OAKLAND – Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore is completely healthy. He still can’t get into a game. The fourth-year pro was among the inactives for Sunday’s game against the 49ers at O.co Coliseum, as he was last week against the St. Louis Rams.
It shows just how far Moore has fallen on this depth chart. The Radiers prefer Vincent Brown and Kenbrell Thompkins, and it seems that he’s lost the trust of quarterback Derek Carr and the team’s coaching staff.
He hasn’t played an offensive snap since Week 10, and may not play another as a Raider. He could get cut when Rod Streater is activated off short-term injured reserve.
It’s crazy to think that Moore used to be the team’s leading receiver, as he was in 2012.
A pair of questionable Raiders were deemed healthy enough to play. Linebacker Sio Moore (hip) and cornerback Tarell Brown (foot) will be ready for the 49ers, which is a good thing for the Raiders. They are vital cogs in this defense, and their presence gives the Raiders a puncher’s chance in this game.
Cornerback Neiko Thorpe was questionable with a hand injury, but was ruled inactive. Quarterback Matt McGloin, guard Tony Bergstrom, right tackle Menelik Watson, defensive tackle Stacy McGee and tight end Brian Leonhardt were also on the inactive list.
