  • Raiders' Bilal Nichols: Good to go vs. Steelers

    Nichols (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Friday and does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

    Nichols was forced out of Week 2 at Buffalo with a hamstring injury, but he recovered in time to suit up for Week 3. He'll resume a starting role on the defensive line next to Jerry Tillery.
