Jon Gruden says Las Vegas Raiders ready to play after several players put on reserve/COVID-19 list

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden seemingly put an end to speculation that his team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday might be postponed or moved a second time due a positive COVID-19 test this week and his entire starting offensive line and a starting safety on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

"We're going to play Sunday at 1 o'clock they tell me, and we'll be ready to go," Gruden said Friday in his Zoom media availability.

It has been a "weird" week for the Raiders, quarterback Derek Carr acknowledged, after right tackle Trent Brown tested positive for the virus.
