Michael Crabtree, Aqib Talib see their fight suspensions reduced to one game
The Broncos and Raiders got good news on Tuesday
On Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported that both of their suspensions have been trimmed to one game. The NFL confirmed the report.
So, Crabtree will miss the Raiders' game against the Giants on Sunday, but will be eligible for their Week 14 game against the Chiefs. And Talib will miss the Broncos' game against the Dolphins, but will return for their Week 14 game against the Jets. That's good news for two teams that both need a whole lot to go right to get themselves back into the playoff picture.
The fight --in the past calendar year, keep in mind -- occurred during the first quarter of the Raiders' 21-14 victory against the Broncos on Sunday. If you missed it, .
Both players were ejected from the game. Raiders offensive lineman Gabe Jackson also got thrown out for making contact with an official.
The Raiders also could be without starting wideout Amari Cooper on Sunday. Cooper left last week's game with a concussion after taking a brutal hit. At 5-6, the Raiders can't afford to drop many winnable games from here on out, but they'll face a tough challenge if Cooper can't play.
