Wide receiver Derek Hagan is among the Oakland Raiders’
inactives for their game at Denver on Monday night despite a
Hagan led the Raiders with 224 yards receiving on a dozen
receptions in the preseason. He’s been dealing with a slightly
strained calf muscle but practiced all week.
What may have hurt him more is this: Hagan isn’t among the
collection of burners owner Al Davis has assembled on offense, a
group of speedsters that includes Darrius Heyward-Bey, Jacoby Ford
and Chaz Schilens at receiver.
Linebacker D.J. Williams, the only player to lead his team in
tackles and sacks last season, was among the Broncos’ deactivated
players. He dislocated his right elbow in the preseason.
