Raiders expected to welcome back offensive playmaker

Darren Waller entered 2021 as far and away the Raiders’ biggest offensive playmaker, and while Hunter Renfrow may have surpassed him as the No. 1 pass-catcher thanks to a 99-catch, 1,025-yard season, the Pro Bowl tight end is crucial to Las Vegas’ success.

Waller has not suited up since injuring his knee in the Raiders’ Thanksgiving Day win over the Cowboys, but after a five-game absence, he is expected to play in a likely win-or-go-home showdown with the Chargers on “Sunday Night Football,” per ESPN’s Dianna Russini. His 6-foot-6, 255-pound frame, athleticism and sure hands would go a long way toward the Raiders making their first playoff appearance since 2016.

The Raiders could also secure a berth if the Colts and Steelers both lose earlier in the day, although with the Colts 14-point favorites in Jacksonville, that scenario is a long shot.
