The Raiders’ flight to the East Coast will be lighter than normal. Several key players won’t be making the trip after being ruled out of Sunday morning’s game against the New York Giants.

As a matter of fact, Raiders coach Dennis Allen’s decision on who to keep active as never been easier. He rules seven players inactive before kickoff, and a cool half dozen are list as out on Friday’s official injury report, including running back Darren McFadden, cornerback D.J. Hayden and right tackle Matt McCants.

The will force unusual suspects into the starting lineup at key spots against a Giants team fresh off a bye.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen is comfortable with his depth, even though most of it is green.

Rashad Jennings has plenty of experience and will run for McFadden, who is down again with a hamstring strain.

Philip Adams will fill in for Hayden – he injured his groin in practice -- and play outside cornerback in the nickel package. Tracy Porter slides into the slot in those situations.
