ALAMEDA As expected, Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey will miss today's game against Denver after being injured last week.
Raiders tight end Richard Gordon also will miss today's game after the team announced Saturday the status for both players had been downgraded.
Heyward-Bey did not practice all week as he recovered from a helmet-to-helmet hit that sent him to the hospital with a concussion and strained neck in last Sunday's victory over Pittsburgh. He leads Raiders wideouts with nine catches for 98 yards and one touchdown this season.
Gordon had been listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.
