This really hurts the Raiders, who could now be without both of their top-two receivers for Week 13 and 14, depending on how Amari Cooper recovers from his concussion and sprained ankle.
Denver may have to add some cornerback depth in the coming days, as they’re currently limited at the position.
We’ll have more regarding the appeals for both players as the news is available.
