Friday PM update: Waller is listed as doubtful. He won’t play, but the doubtful designation is a good sign moving forward.
Friday update: Waller wasn’t at practice on Friday, per Tashan Reed. Reed says that Waller won’t suit up and that’s a pretty easy assessment at this point. Foster Moreau will take over the tight end job this week.
Thursday update: Waller once again wasn’t spotted at practice on Thursday. It would be a major surprise if he suited up this week.
Wednesday update: Waller is not practicing on Wednesday. He remains week-to-week and appears on track to miss this week against Washington.
No Darren Waller (knee) at practice for the #Raiders today. As interim coach Rich Bisaccia said yesterday, the tight end is week-to-week with his injury.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) December 1, 2021
UPDATE: Waller suffered a strained IT band in his knee, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Waller went for an MRI on Friday and avoided serious injury, which is a good sign for his status for Week 13.
UPDATE: Raiders tight end Darren Waller was force from Thursday’s game with a knee injury, eventually being ruled out for the game. He will now get an MRI on his knee, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. He was seen jogging on the sideline after his injury, so hopefully it isn’t a long term problem, but the MRI should clear things up. Foster Moreau would have fantasy value if Waller misses time.
UPDATE: Waller has been ruled out due to his knee injury.
UPDATE: Waller is jogging on the sideline, trying to work his way back on the field.

UPDATE: Waller is officially questionable to return with a knee injury.
Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller suffered a leg injury in the second quarter versus the Cowboys. Waller was dealing with back issues earlier in the game. Foster Moreau would take over if Waller misses much time.
Waller had two receptions for 33 yards before leaving and was coming off a big reception when he was tackled and had his knee caught up under him.
