Jaguars vs. Raiders injury report: Alan Ball, Will Rackley are game-time decisions

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars will likely be without Marcedes Lewis on Sunday, but the potential losses of Will Rackley and Alan Ball could be even more costly.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been relatively lucky when it comes to injuries, as the team has managed to avoid any serious losses for the season. However, little bumps and bruises stacked up in Week 1 and could have the team in jeopardy when they travel to face the Oakland Raiders.

Unsurprisingly, tight end Marcedes Lewis is doubtful for Sunday's game, but the potential losses of Will Rackley and Alan Ball could prove even more costly. The pair of starters will be game-time decisions, according to Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley.

After struggling to run the ball against Dontari Poe and the Chiefs, any loss along the offensive line is a costly one. If Rackley is unavailable on Sunday, it would likely mean a start for Mike Brewster. Fortunately for the Jaguars though, Uche Nwaneri is listed as probable after sitting out of practice on Thursday and Friday.

If Ball is unavailable on Sunday, the Jaguars would likely have to rely on the combination of Will Blackmon and Demetrius McCray to start at cornerback.

Here's the full injury report from practice on Friday:
