Raiders injury report: Richard Seymour, Tyvon Branch questionable vs. Chiefs

Kevin C. Cox

The Oakland Raiders may be without Richard Seymour and Tyvon Branch for their Week 15 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Both the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs have struggled badly this season. Carson Palmer has only been able to lead the Raiders to a 3-10 record up to this point in the season and it has been even worse for Matt Cassel and the Chiefs, who tied for a league-worst 2-11 record. The two AFC West teams face off in Oakland on Sunday for a game that will be played for pride.

If the Chiefs are looking for their third victory of the season, though, this will likely be their last and best chance to get it. They play the surprising Colts and division-leading Broncos to round out the season. Also, the Raiders could be without two of their better defensive players: defensive lineman Richard Seymour and strong safety Tyvon Branch, both listed as questionable with neck and ankle injuries respectively.

Branch is second on the team in tackles with 88 and has one interception on the season while Seymour is second on the team in quarterback sacks with three. Seymour has missed the last five weeks and his presence has been missed on the defensive line.

The Raiders defeated the Chiefs in Kansas City by a score of 26-16 and the Chiefs will be looking to even the score this weekend on the road. They'll have to overcome some injuries of their own as the team's best wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe, has already been ruled out with a rib injury.

The Chiefs and Raiders are set for kickoff in O.co Coliseum at 3:25 CT on Sunday.
