The Raiders and the Colts have released their inactive lists for Thursday's season opener. The Colts have been forced to make some moves on the offensive line.
The Oakland Raiders and Indianapolis Colts have officially reported their lists of inactive players as the two squads prepare to kick off their 2013 campaigns against one another.
The Colts will be without linebacker Pat Angerer today. Angerer was diagnosed with a slow-developing concussion that he received on the first play of the team's final preseason game against the Bengals. After an injury-plagued 2012 season, Angerer had been hoping he would have better fortunes with his health this year. Unfortunately, he may miss even more than Sunday's game.
Meanwhile the Raiders are heading into the game with questions on the offensive line. Rookie Menelik Watson is officially out as he nurses a knee injury, forcing Oakland to go to its third option at left tackle: Moving veteran Khalif Barnes over from the right side of the line. Watson himself had been the replacement for Jared Veldheer. Tony Pashos, signed just one week ago, will start at right tackle for the Raiders.
