Raiders Vs. Chiefs: Michael Bush, Louis Murphy Expected To Play For Oakland

The Oakland Raiders are missing a key piece already from their offense as Darren McFadden will miss his eighth straight game today against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, they are also going to have a couple other pieces hurting as they head into today’s game, yet that shouldn’t keep them from playing. Chris Mortensen is reporting that wide receiver Louis Murphy and running back Michael Bush will play today despite being questionable earlier this week.

Both players should be essential for Carson Palmer and the rest of the offense today if the Raiders are going to beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead. Murphy is part of a dynamic wide receiver corps that should be able to beat the Chiefs deep if they can get past the corners. For Bush, it’s all about replacing McFadden and giving the Raiders passing game some room to move.

The Raiders need to win to keep their playoff hopes alive and the same can be said for Kansas City. These late season injuries will undoubtedly be exploited as much as possible to get any upper-hand for the opposing team.
