Michael Huff injury: Raiders corner hurts wrist, return questionable

Kevin C. Cox

Raiders cornerback Michael Huff left Thursday's game with a wrist injury.

The Oakland Raiders are struggling to slow down Peyton Manning on Thursday and injuries to Oakland's secondary are only making it a bigger challenge.

Safety Tyvon Branch left the game with an ankle injury during the first quarter and now starting cornerback Michael Huff as well as Branch's replacement Mike Mitchell are also out with injuries. Huff and Mitchell both left the game during the second quarter and are both questionable to return. Huff injured his wrist while Mitchell is out with a neck injury. Branch previously left the game with an ankle injury. Branch has been seen warming up on the sidelines.

After playing both cornerback and safety during his career, Huff has spent the majority of this season at cornerback. He leads the Raiders with 11 pass deflections and is tied for the team-high in interceptions with two. Huff's 11 pass deflections are tied for the 18th most in the NFL this season.
