OAKLAND — Tight end Matt LaCosse is inactive for Monday night's game against the Raiders after being listed as questionable with an ankle injury on the Broncos' final injury report of the week.

The team announced its seven inactive players 90 minutes before its "Monday Night Football" game in Oakland.

Outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett is active after missing the previous three games. Cornerback Isaac Yiadom, who was held out of the Broncos' Week 15 game with a shoulder injury, is also active.

Safety Su'a Cravens and outside linebacker Shane Ray, though, will not play for the second consecutive week as they were both ruled inactive.

Following the Broncos' Week 15 game against the Browns, Head Coach Vance Joseph said the Broncos were playing the players who gave them the best chance at a win.

“We’re playing the best players," said Joseph on Dec. 15. "Trying to win a game. Simple as that.”

Ray was listed as questionable on the team's final injury report of the week. He was added to the report on Friday with an illness.
