The move comes amid an outbreak of COVID-19 on the Raiders and potential
exposure to other players on the team. The Raiders' entire corps of starting
offensive linemen -- as well as starting safety Johnathan Abram -- were sent
home Wednesday after contact tracing efforts surrounding offensive tackle
Trent Brown's addition to the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

"These decisions were made out of an abundance of caution to ensure that a
game would be available for fans on Sunday Night Football," the NFL announced
in a press release.

"We expect the Buccaneers-Raiders game to be played on Sunday afternoon.
Scheduling decisions are made to ensure the health and safety of players,
coaches and game day personnel and in consultation with medical experts."

The Raiders' game against the Bucs game in Las Vegas is now scheduled to kick
off at 4:05 p.m. ET.

The Seahawks at Cardinals game becomes the Sunday night game and will start at
8:20 p.m. ET.

In addition to Brown, the Raiders placed Damon Arnette on COVID reserve
earlier in the week, despite the fact he was already on injured reserve.
