I thought it might be good to start a thread to note any of the help we get along the way due to injuries, suspensions or other issues which upcoming opponents face. On a week to week basis this will be a topic covered in game threads, but this can help keep an eye to the future.
This is one which would have been best suited to discussing the Ravens dramatic release of Earl Thomas, but a season ending injury to Raiders WR Tyrell Williams will also work.
Williams was due to be a starter along side Henry Ruggs III, with Hunter Renfrow manning the slot. Rookie Bryan Edwards, Zay Jones and Nelson Agholor are all options to now step in to a larger role. The Raiders arguably have one of the deepest WR rooms in the entire NFL, so it isn't too much of a hiccup for them, but Williams is an incredibly talented player with a nice $44M contract to back it up.
The Raiders losing Williams should make life a little easier when we face them in week 8 before heading in to the bye.
