Davante Adams and Darren Waller are questionable to play Sunday when the Las Vegas Raiders travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints.

The Raiders released its injury report Friday, saying Adams was back on the practice field after missing the previous two days with an illness. TashawnBower and Johnathan Abram, who were also out with an illness, were limited Friday, too.

“We had a little bug going through the team basically,” head coach Josh McDaniels said. “Most of our guys I think are getting on the other side of it. Knock on wood that we don’t end up with another four or five of us getting it, but I think most everybody will be back.”

If Davante Adams is able to play, he could have a historic Sunday. He is just two touchdowns away from becoming just the fourth player in NFL history with at least 700 receptions and 80 touchdowns in his first nine seasons.

Waller, who continues to deal with a hamstring injury, was limited at practice Friday.

“I know especially the kind of competitor he is, the kind of person that he is, I know it’s eating him up to have to miss,” quarterback Derek Carr told the media when asked about Waller’s injury.

Carr and running back Josh Jacobs, both limited in practice earlier in the week, were full participants Friday.

On the opposite side, the New Orleans Saints have already ruled out wide receivers Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry and cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
