CARSON, Calif. - Welcome back, Hunter Renfrow.

The Oakland Raiders' rookie slot receiver, playing for the first time since suffering a broken rib Nov. 24, took the first ball thrown his way Sunday to the house for a 56-yard yard catch-and-run touchdown. The play, on third-and-6, gave the Raiders a quick 7-0 lead over the Los Angeles Chargers with 10:57 left in the first quarter.

It was Renfrow's third TD of the season and came on a slant pass from the left slot. The Chargers were caught blitzing and defensive back Desmond King II bounced off Renfrow on the attempted tackle.
