The Oakland Raiders have declared WR JJ Nelson, OT Brandon Parker, QB DeShone Kizer, WR Dwayne Harris, DE Clelin Ferrell, WR Tyrell Williams and OG Gabe Jackson inactive for Week 5.

Footballguys view: Williams is out as expected. Rookies Keelan Doss and Foster Moreau could get more targets and Moreau could be on the field more with two tight end sets likely being the default for this shorthanded offense.
