Waller suffered an injury to his ankle and heel during Friday's practice, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The injury left him a game-time decision. The Raiders apparently ruled Waller out after evaluating him during pregame warmups. They did not initially specify why he was ruled out.

Waller, a Pro Bowl selection last season, has 33 catches for 378 yards and two touchdowns in six games this season. His absence will leave the Raiders more reliant on backup tight end Foster Moreau.
