The Las Vegas Raiders know how important offensive tackle Kolton Miller is to their front line.

According to Pro Football Focus, Miller ranks as the fourth-highest among all NFL tackles. Interim coach Antonio Pierce emphasized Miller’s importance, saying he’s critical to the offensive line.

Miller missed Week 10 with a shoulder injury and has practiced in a limited capacity this week. But, with the release of the injury report, he’s listed as questionable for Sunday.

“He’s a nucleus, he’s a captain, he’s a leader. He’s one of the best left tackles in football in my opinion. Obviously when we have him, we’re a better team. If we don’t, next man up mentality,” Pierce said. “But you could just see the way he’s working this week that he wants to be out there.”

Another Raider to keep an eye on is cornerback Amik Robertson, who was placed in the NFL’s concussion protocol earlier this week. A full participant in Friday’s practice, Robertson has no designation going into Sunday’s game.

” If he can go through today, then obviously we’ll play him,” Pierce said Friday.

On the Miami side, coach Mike McDaniel told reporters Friday he’s “very optimistic” running back De’Von Achane will be activated from the team’s IR. Before he was sidelined with a knee injury for four games, the rookie back racked up 460 rushing yards and five touchdowns in just four games.

Achane was limited in every practice this week and is questionable heading into Sunday’s contest.

“As we’ve held our ground on… we’re not going to rush processes. But it’s been so far so good. Encouraged by that,” McDaniel said Friday about activating Achane.
