Poor air quality in Oakland has affected the Raiders' practices this week, but for now, the team's game against the Chargers remains as scheduled.

The NFL expects to make a decision Friday on whether the Chargers-Raiders game can be played as scheduled Sunday in Oakland. The NFL said it will continue to keep an eye on the situation. We will continue to monitor air quality conditions in the Bay Area and will update the public with any changes via our social media channels.

The game, if moved, likely would be played in an National Football League stadium, Lockhart said. At that stage, the Environmental Protection Agency suggests "People with heart or lung disease, older adults, and children should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion".

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, receiver Michael Crabtree and other Raiders players wore masks while practicing Thursday.
