The Raiders received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's blowout loss to the Chiefs in Week 15.
In the running game, fullback Jamize Olawale rushed for two yards on one carry. In the passing game, Taiwan Jones, who converted to cornerback before the start of the season, came down with a short pass from Matt McGloin and took it up the field for a 52-yard gain for his only catch of the day. He also lost a fumble.
Raiders embattled running back Darren McFadden said Thursday he would like to return to the team next season, but offensive coordinator Greg Olson said that might require two productive games to end 2013, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal is taking his usual path this week to being active on game day - being inactive in practice. A toe injury has kept Royal off the practice field much of the year. He was again sidelined on Thursday, but should play against Oakland on Sunday.
