ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders hope to have cornerback Sean Smith back in the lineup for Monday's game in Mexico City against the Houston Texans.
Smith made it through a third consecutive day of practice Saturday and continues to wear a protective sling on his left shoulder while being listed as questionable on the team's medical report.
Coach Jack Del Rio, who rarely discusses injuries in detail, declined to say whether Smith would play but sounded optimistic.
He says the team has about six players who are questionable and he hopes all can play.
That list includes wide receiver Amari Cooper and running back Latavius Murray, along with offensive linemen Rodney Hudson and Kelechi Osemele. All four have been limited in practice this week.
Defensive tackle Stacy McGee, who is nursing an ankle injury, joins Smith as the only defensive players on the injury list.
