Oakland Raiders DE Mario Edwards Jr. (hip) did some work on the treadmill earlier this week and resumed working out on grass Thursday, Dec. 1, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie.

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (ankle) has been limited all week in practice, but he is expected to play in Week 13 versus the Buffalo Bills despite being listed as questionable on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Murray is a high floor RB2 as the lead back in a quality offense. He hasn't been a very efficient runner in most of his recent games, but he is getting consistent goal line opportunities and a helping of receptions out of the backfield.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray will play Sunday    Sun Nov 27, 10:39 AM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (ankle) will play in Week 12's game against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Luke Kuechly is out to upgrade Murray's matchup, but his replacement AJ Klein is not too shabby in run defense, and Shaq Thompson will be a strong replacement for Kuechly on passing downs. Murray remains a boom/bust RB2 with a lower ceiling against a top-end front seven.

  Raiders | Michael Crabtree likely to play    Sun Nov 27, 10:35 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) appears likely to play in Week 12's game against the Carolina Panthers, although he will test his ankle in pregame warmups before a final decision is made.

Footballguys view: This is a late start, so you need to make sure you have a late/night game option at wide receiver (or running back if Crabtree can be moved to your flex). Crabtree does have a high ceiling against the Panthers inexperienced secondary.
