The Oakland Raiders know they will get at least one playmaking receiver back on the field when they face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in a pivotal AFC West battle.

Amari Cooper remains a question mark while battling an ankle injury (he's cleared concussion protocol), but Michael Crabtree returning from suspension will give Derek Carr a weapon on the outside.

"It's going to be huge," Carr said of Crabtree's return, via NBC Bay Area. "We've been through this a couple of times this year. Anytime you can get a piece back, it's nothing against anybody else, but those guys are starters for a reason. Those guys got all the reps.

"With Crab coming back, obviously it's no secret. I love throwing him the ball. I love Crab and I think a lot of people know that. So being able to get him back, it definitely helps our team."
