The Raiders have scored again and now lead the Cowboys 17-6, but it could have been an expensive drive.

Star tight end Darren Waller, who earlier in the match briefly went out with a back injury, was injured with 12:15 left of the first half. After catching a 21-yard pass from Derek Carr, Waller fell hard on both knees after a blow by Jayron Kearse.

He immediately grabbed one of his knees before limping away. Waller tried to get off before entering the blue medical tent.

The Raiders list Waller as doubtful of returning.

Waller was inactive against the Eagles earlier in the season with knee and ankle injuries.

The Raiders got a chip-shot, 22-yard field goal by Daniel Carlson, an unsatisfactory result after having first-and-goals on Dallas 7. They came as close as the 4 and had third tight than Daniel Helm open in the end zone, but Carr missed him with the throw.

Carr is 7-of-14 for 135 yards and a touchdown, a 56-yard throw to DeSean Jackson.

The Raiders also announced that defensive back Carl Nassib is doubtful about returning with a knee injury.
