ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and tight end Richard Gordon will miss Sunday's game for the Oakland Raiders in Denver with injuries.

The team announced Saturday the status for both players had been downgraded and they will miss the game against the Broncos.

Heyward-Bey did not practice all week as he recovered from a helmet-to-helmet hit that sent him to the hospital last Sunday with a concussion and strained neck. He leads Raiders wideouts with nine catches this season for 98 yards and a touchdown.

Gordon had been listed as questionable with a hamstring injury but will not play.
