NAPA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders lost two players to injuries in the exhibition opener with starting defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. sidelined by a hip injury and tight end Gabe Holmes out with an ankle injury.

Coach Jack Del Rio said Monday that Edwards will miss a "few weeks" but won't need surgery after getting injured Friday night at Arizona. Holmes has a more significant injury — a high ankle sprain and a broken bone in the ankle that could put him on season-ending injured reserve.

With the season set to start in less than four weeks, Edwards' status for the opener at New Orleans is now in question.
