Raiders’ Moore misses second straight practice

Raiders rookie quarterback Matt McGloin could be without his top receiver when he makes his second NFL start Sunday against Tennessee.

Denarius Moore missed his second straight day of practice with a shoulder injury he suffered during last week’s win over Houston. If he’s unable to go, it would weaken an already thin receiving corps.

“Several guys need to step up,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Thursday. “It’s just like everything else we’ve had to deal with as far as injuries are concerned. Next man up. Somebody’s going to have to come out and perform.”

Only two of Oakland’s wide receivers have caught more than 10 passes this season.

Moore, who has not missed a start since being sidelined with a hamstring injury for the season opener in 2012, is one of them.

The third-year wide receiver leads the Raiders in catches, receiving yardage and touchdowns this season.

He is the only Oakland player to have a 100-yard game this season and was attempting to become the first Oakland wide receiver to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark since Randy Moss in 2005.

Moore might still get there but will have to do it in fewer than 16 games if he misses the Titans game.

“Denarius has been really our leading receiver so it’ll have an effect,” Allen said. “We’ve got several quality wide receivers. All those guys have been a factor for us and they need to continue to be a factor for us.”Denarius MooreDennis AllenNFLOakland Raiders & NFLRaiders
