ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Oakland Raiders cornerback TJ Carrie will miss the season finale against Denver because of an ankle injury.
Carrie was downgraded from questionable to out Saturday.
The injury means Oakland will be without four of its top five cornerbacks for the matchup against Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Starters Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown are on season-ending injured reserve and backup Chimdi Chekwa is also out with a hamstring injury.
DJ Hayden and rookie Keith McGill are expected to start. McGill played just 18 defensive snaps over the first 14 games before getting extensive time last week.
