ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders go into the final stretch of the season not knowing if they will have their starting offensive line available for the remaining two games.
Coach Jon Gruden said he remained cautiously hopeful that left guard Kelechi Osemele can return from a toe injury and right guard Gabe Jackson can get back from an elbow injury in time for Monday night's home finale against Denver.
Raiders safety Reggie Nelson was benched by coach Jon Gruden for Oakland's game against the visiting Indianapolis Colts.
Nelson had played in 82 consecutive regular-season games before being a healthy scratch on Sunday.

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have been fined $20,000 for not downgrading guard Kelechi Osemele to out for a Week 5 game.
A person with knowledge of the fine told The Associated Press on Thursday that the team violated the league's injury report policy by not moving Osemele from questionable to out. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL has not announced the fine.
The Raiders lost to the Chargers in the road game, 26-10.

Trouble began with Spence and Osemele still on the ground after a sack by Miami's Cameron Wake.

"We expect to hear something early in the week," Del Rio said. "Hopefully by tomorrow would be the fairest thing for the team to prepare."

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Raiders were missing three starters for their AFC West showdown Thursday night against the Chiefs after offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele was a late scratch due to an illness.

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders hope to have cornerback Sean Smith back in the lineup for Monday's game in Mexico City against the Houston Texans.

Coach Jack Del Rio, who rarely discusses injuries in detail, declined to say whether Smith would play but sounded optimistic.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Off to their best start since 2009, the Baltimore Ravens are one of only five unbeaten teams in the NFL.
Kelechi Osemele is among the few who saw this coming — even though Baltimore went 5-11 last season with Osemele on the offensive line.
"I won a Super Bowl in Baltimore. I already know what the organization is all about," said Osemele, now a member of the Oakland Raiders.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Raiders left guard Kelechi Osemele has a few physical reminders of his time in Baltimore, most notably the Super Bowl ring he won as a rookie in 2012 that sits in a safe that his mother watches over.
Mentally, the veteran offensive lineman can't shake the memories of a bitter offseason split after four highly productive years with the Ravens that ultimately led to his arrival in Oakland, where he's become the anchor of one of the top lines in the NFL.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Even though Latavius Murray is getting the ball less for the Oakland Raiders, he's doing much more when he has it.
With the Raiders finally giving him needed support in the backfield with rookies Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington and fortifying the line with Kelechi Osemele, Murray is off to a fast start this season.
