ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders might be without both of their starting cornerbacks for the season finale against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Mike Jenkins has a hamstring injury that has limited him in workouts, and Tracy Porter sustained a hip flexor during practice Friday. Both are listed as questionable.

That could pose a serious problem in Sunday when Manning will attempt to break the NFL's single-season passing record.

Seldom-used Chimdi Chekwa and Phillip Adams will start if Jenkins and Porter are unable to play. Chekwa, a fourth-round pick in 2011, has just one start in his career while Adams has three and has played mostly as a nickel back for the past six weeks.

The Raiders are trying to snap a five-game losing streak.
