ALAMEDA — The Raiders will have their offensive line intact Thursday night against the Los Angeles Chargers, as both center Rodney Hudson and right tackle Trent Brown are active.

The projected starting line of left tackle Kolton Miller, left guard Richie Incognito, Hudson, right guard Gabe Jackson and Brown have been together for only 10 snaps this season against the Houston Texans.

Hudson missed last week’s 31-24 win over the Detroit Lions with an ankle injury, while Brown left after seven snaps and was replaced by David Sharpe.

Designated as inactive for the Chargers game were wide receiver Keelan Doss, wide receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris, quarterback DeShone Kizer, center Erik Magnuson, defensive end Josh Mauro, cornerback Keisean Nixon and right tackle Brandon Parker.

Mauro is missing his second straight game with a groin injury. Harris has battled foot and ankle injuries most of the season.

In another transaction, the Raiders promoted linebacker Quintin Poling to the 53-man roster from the practice squad and he is active for the game. He replaces defensive end Arden Key, who broke his foot in last week’s win over the Detroit Lions.

Poling (6-foot-1, 235 pounds) was a seventh-round pick by Miami in 2018 and spent the season on their practice squad. In four seasons at Ohio University, Poling had 18 1/2 sacks and 44 tackles for loss.
