ALAMEDA, Calif. — While wide receiver Hunter Renfrow appears likely to be out for another couple of weeks, Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Wednesday the club hopes to have him back for the last two games of the season against the Chargers and Broncos.
“We’re very hopeful that he could return — maybe for the last game or two,” Gruden said. “We’re going to keep him where he is on the active roster. We’re going to try to do without him for another game or two, and hopefully get him back maybe for the Chargers game. That’s our wish list/hope list right now for Hunter. We miss him.”
Renfrow has caught 36 passes for 396 yards and two touchdowns this season. A fifth-round pick out of Clemson, he emerged as one of quarterback Derek Carr’s top targets to move the chains — making 16 receptions for 13 first downs on third down.
Renfrow suffered a rib injury during the Week 12 loss to the Jets and was inactive for the Week 13 loss to the Chiefs.
