Raiders’ O-line shuffling continues as Parker starts on right side

The Raiders continue to play mix and match on the offensive line, meaning coach Jon Gruden and line coach Tom Cable will start their seventh different offensive line combination of the season Sunday night against the Kansas City Chiefs.

With Sam Young designated as inactive with knee and back issues, Brandon Parker will start at right tackle. Parker has played right tackle this season, but only as a substitute. The rest of the starting line will be Kolton Miller at left tackle, Denzelle Good at left guard, Rodney Hudson at center and Gabe Jackson at right guard.

Other inactives against the Chiefs were running back Jalen Richard (chest), defensive tackles Maurice Hurst (ankle) and Daniel Ross, guard John Simpson and quarterback Marcus Mariota.

The following are the seven different offensive line combinations in 10 games the Raiders have started games with this season:

1: Miller, Richie Incognito, Hudson, Jackson, Trent Brown

2: Miller, Incognito, Hudson, Jackson, Good.

3: Miller, Simpson, Hudson, Jackson, Good

4: Miller, Good, Hudson, Jackson, Young

5: Miller, Good, Hudson, Jackson, Brown.

6: Parker, Good, Hudson, Jackson, Young.

7: Miller, Good, Hudson, Jackson, Parker

The Raiders remain hopeful of getting Incognito (Achilles’) and Brown (complications from COVID-19) back in the starting lineup before the end of the season. The projected Raiders offensive line which started against Carolina in Week 1 has been together for only three plays.
