Las Vegas starting offensive linemen Kolton Miller, Denzelle Good, Rodney Hudson and Gabe Jackson are active for the Raiders against Tampa Bay after spending time on the COVID-19 list this week.

The four linemen were sent home Wednesday because they had “high risk” contact with teammate Trent Brown before he tested positive for the coronavirus this week. They missed three practices, but were able to come back after five straight days of negative tests.

Safety Johnathan Abram remains on the COVID-19 list for at least one more day and is missing the game.

Elsewhere in the late afternoon games, Chiefs right tackle Mitchell Schwartz’s string of 141 consecutive starts including the playoffs is coming to an end. Schwartz didn’t make the trip to Denver because of a bad back.

The 31-year-old stalwart shared his thoughts on missing his first career start in an Instagram post on Saturday: “First time not traveling, and first game in my career I’ll miss. Going to be strange watching tomorrow but there will be no bigger Chiefs fan! Working hard to get back out there and excited to see the guys keep this thing rolling. Go Chiefs!!”

Mike Remmers will start for Schwartz.

Also out for Kansas City are wide receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and defensive end Taco Charlton (knee).

Kick returner Dionte Spencer (shoulder) is out for Denver, but the Broncos are getting three players back off injured reserve, including cornerback A.J. Bouye, who went out with a shoulder injury in the opener. Also back from IR are defensive ends Dre’Mont Jones and DeMarcus Walker.
