Position Listing
Rodney Hudson
News
Hudson has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and will play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Hudson was on the COVID-19 list after coming into contact with Trent Brown, who tested positive. Hudson has now tested negative enough times to be cleared for Sunday's game, and he'll have a tough test against Tampa Bay's fierce front seven.

Cory Littleton
News
Littleton finished with eight tackles (five solo, one tackle for loss) in Sunday's 45-20 loss to Tampa Bay.

Littleton's performance in Week 7 was his best so far this season in terms of tackles. He was on the field for every defensive snap. The Washington product sits with 35 tackles (23 solo) over six contests in 2020.

Datone Jones
News
Jones agreed to a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Jones has played just five snaps the past two years after coming into the league as a first-round pick of the Packers in 2013. The veteran will provide depth along the defensive front if he makes the squad.

Maxx Crosby
News
Crosby recorded two tackles and a sack in Sunday's 40-32 win over the Chiefs.

After failing to record a sack through the first two games of the season, Crosby has been on fire with four sacks through three games. He added to QB hits Sunday as well, making Patrick Mahomes uncharacteristically uncomfortable. No other Raiders player has more than one sack this year, and 2019 first-round pick Clelin Ferrell has yet to take down the quarterback this year.

Darren Waller
News
Waller brought in six of nine targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Waller was unsurprisingly heavily involved in a day when Derek Carr put up 36 attempts, with the big tight end drawing nine of those looks to co-lead the team with Nelson Agholor in that category. The 28-year-old's catch total set the pace for the Raiders as well, while his one-yard scoring grab late in the third quarter marked his third in the last five games. Waller's elevated role in the offense should certainly continue in a Week 8 road battle against the Browns.

Maliek Collins
News
Collins (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Collins was listed as questionable after missing Week 5 with the shoulder injury, but he's good to go coming out of the bye week. The 25-year-old has three tackles through four games and should return to his starting role at defensive tackle.

Tyrell Williams
News
Williams, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, will undergo surgery on the torn labrum in his right shoulder at some point in September, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Williams initially expected to play through the injury, but instead surgery has been ordered up, which will cause him to miss the entirety of his sixth NFL season. In his stead, the Raiders are expected to go with an inexperienced receiving corps composed of two rookies (Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards) and a second-year slot specialist (Hunter Renfrow).

Injury
Shoulder - Labrum - Injured Reserve
Rico Gafford
News
Gafford (hamstring) is active Week 5 against Kansas City.

Gafford made progress on the practice field this week, and it will ultimately be enough to see an active status for just the second time this season. Like his last opportunity, however, Gafford is still likely to see work primarily on special teams. Even though Bryan Edwards (ankle) is inactive, top option Henry Ruggs (knee) is back, with Hunter Renfrow, Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones all likely to see offensive snaps ahead of Gafford.

Nevin Lawson
News
Lawson had his suspension lifted following Sunday's win over the Panthers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Lawson was handed a one-game suspension for "using a helmet that is no longer worn by anyone as a weapon to strike, swing at, or throw at an opponent" during last year's season finale against Denver. Now that he sat out of Sunday's season opener, he's eligible to return for Week 2's matchup versus the Saints, but he may stick to special teams to start off.

Jalen Richard
News
Richard rushed for 24 yards on seven carries in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Richard's seven rushing attempts were a season high while his 24 yards actually led the team Sunday, but he wasn't targeted in the passing game despite Las Vegas playing from behind for the entirety of the second half. The Raiders will look to improve upon their disappointing 3.2 YPC in Week 7 during their upcoming tilt against the Browns.

Clelin Ferrell
News
Ferrell has bulked up to 275 pounds as part of his offseason training regimen, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

The 2019 fourth overall pick is coming off an inconsistent but encouraging rookie campaign, in which he accumulated 38 total tackles, 4.5 sacks and five defended passes. Now eyeing a step forward in Year 2, Ferrell has focused his offseason training on bulking up 13 pounds and mastering tape study of opposing offensive linemen. "You wouldn't even recognize me," the 23-year-old said. Ferrell is locked in for a starting role for Las Vegas in 2020, and he could find himself on the radar of IDP fantasy leagues if he's indeed able to progress in his development.

James Onwualu
News
Carolina signed Onwualu (knee) to a contract Wednesday.

Onwualu spent the entire 2019 campaign on Jacksonville's injured reserve list. Now healthy, he'll have just a few days to make an impression with the Panthers before the team is forced to begin roster cuts.

Nicholas Morrow
News
Morrow made nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Patriots.

Morrow is averaging seven tackles per game this season, and he's played every snap in each of the last two contests. His starting role is secure at strong-side linebacker, and he'll likely lead the team in tackles until Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) returns to the lineup, making Morrow a solid IDP play.

Nelson Agholor
News
Agholor hauled in five of nine targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Agholor provided an immediate spark for the Raiders with a 20-yard scoring grab early in the first quarter, and he finished with a team-high receiving yardage total. The veteran also shared the team lead in targets with Darren Waller as the chemistry between Agholor and Derek Carr continued to blossom in impressive fashion. The performance marked the 27-year-old's first 100-yard effort of the season, but he's now gotten into the end zone in three straight games and four of the six contests he's suited up for overall. While the eventual return of rookie Bryan Edwards (ankle/foot) could certainly impact Agholor's involvement to a degree, the latter has seemingly made enough of a case for himself to still see a solid level of involvement in that scenario.

Damon Arnette
News
Arnette (thumb) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Arnette was already on injured reserve following an October thumb surgery. The rookie cornerback either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person, and he won't be able to return to team activities until he clears the NFL's COVID-19 protocols.

Injury
Thumb - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Patrick Omameh
News
The Raiders elevated Omameh to the 53-man roster from their practice squad Wednesday.

Omameh latched on in Las Vegas after he was cut by the Saints before the season began, as the move appeared to work out for him. The Michigan product will likely handle depth duties on the offensive line as long as he's on the active roster.

Tanner Muse
News
The Raiders placed Muse (toe) on injured reserve Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

It's unclear how the 2020 third-round pick suffered the injury, however, it's serious enough to force him to miss significant time. Muse may return this season, but he's likely to miss at least a month. In his stead, Johnathan Abram and Jeff Heath will handle strong safety duties.

Injury
Toe - Injured Reserve
Amik Robertson
News
Robertson (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

The rookie fourth-round pick was considered questionable due to an illness, but it won't prevent him from being available for Sunday's contest. Robertson has yet to play a snap this season, so he's unlikely to be a factor in the Raiders' defensive plans.

Zay Jones
News
Jones played 10 offensive snaps but was not targeted in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Jones was relatively uninvolved despite fellow receiver Bryan Edwards' (ankle/foot) continued absence, while Nelson Agholor broke out for 107 yards and a touchdown on five catches across from Henry Ruggs. Hunter Renfrow also saw six targets as Jones' role figures to remain limited Week 8 at Cleveland.

Kyle Wilber
News
Wilber re-signed with the Raiders on Monday.

Wilber's set for a third season in silver and black, and he should continue to operate as a depth linebacker. He appeared in 14 games last season but started just one, finishing with six combined tackles in 2019.

Keelan Doss
News
Doss reverted to the Raiders' practice squad Monday, according to the NFL transaction page.

Doss played on three offensive snaps as depth among the Raiders receivers corps in Week 4 against Buffalo. He was promoted after the team was hit by a number of injuries to their pass-catchers, most notably Bryan Edwards (ankle) and Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring).

Kemah Siverand
No Updates
Raekwon McMillan
News
McMillan was traded to the Raiders from the Dolphins on Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

This is a bit of a shocking transaction given Miami lost possible starting middle linebacker Vince Biegel (Achilles) early in the preseason, leaving Elandon Roberts and Kamu Grugier-Hill as the only possible veteran fill-ins. It's also strange from the Raiders' perspective given the team just signed Cory Littleton to a three-year, $36 million contract this past offseason which would seemingly make the McMillan acquisition redundant. It's unclear what type of compensation was given up to acquire the 2017 second-round pick, but the 24-year-old will nevertheless be forced to compete for defensive snaps in 2020.

Johnathan Hankins
News
Hankins posted 50 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a pass breakup over 16 games in 2019.

Hankins is a skilled run stopper, and the Raiders appear to be planning for him to be part of their future. In December, the team converted $1.75 million of his offseason bonus to a signing bonus. The defensive tackle will carry a $5.125 million cap hit in 2020, and he's in line for a starting role again.

Daniel Ross
News
Ross suffered a foot injury in Sunday's game against New England and didn't return.

Ross suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter, so he failed to return to the game. His practice status Tuesday and Wednesday will paint a clearer picture of his chances to suit up for next week's game against the Bills.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
David Irving
News
The Raiders signed Irving to the practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Irving was handed an indefinite suspension by the NFL in March of 2019 for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The league conditionally reinstated the defensive tackle last Friday, and he's found a new home in Las Vegas. It may take some time for the 27-year-old defensive tackle to get up to speed considering he hasn't played since the 2018 season, but the Raiders likely plan to promote him to the active roster at some point. Irving could be a major boost for the team's defensive front, as he posted eight sacks over his last 10 NFL games.

Erik Magnuson
News
Magnuson was waived by the Raiders, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Magnuson was a casualty of the Raiders' need to promote receiver Rico Gafford from the practice squad. The 25-year-old appeared in one game during his month-long stint in Oakland.

Bryan Edwards
News
Edwards (ankle/foot) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Wednesday marked Edwards' first practice since he sprained his ankle in Week 3. If he shows enough progress in practice this week to suit up Sunday in Cleveland, Edwards could find himself out of the mix for a regular starting role alongside Henry Ruggs and Hunter Renfrow. Nelson Agholor has stepped up for the Raiders in Edwards' absence, hauling in 11 of 15 targets for 218 yards and three touchdowns over the past three contests.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 9 at L.A. Chargers
Carl Nassib
News
Nassib (toe) is active for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

The 27-year-old was considered questionable for Sunday's contest, but his availability never truly appeared in doubt. Nassib has 10 tackles and a half-sack through five games and should reclaim his rotational role in the Raiders' defensive line rotation.

Marcell Ateman
News
The Raiders restored Ateman (undisclosed) to the practice squad Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Ateman resided on the practice squad injured list for the past month, but he's finally healthy enough to return to practice. He'll continue to push for a roster spot as a depth receiver around the league now that he's healthy.

Dominik Eberle
News
Eberle was waived by Las Vegas on Monday.

Eberle initially joined the Raiders back in April after going undrafted, but he ultimately wasn't able to carve out a role with the team. The Utah State product is coming off a prolific collegiate career, so he could earn looks with other organizations.

Trayvon Mullen
News
Mullen posted 50 tackles, 10 pass breakups and an interception over 16 games in 2019.

The rookie second-round pick out of Clemson played in a reserve role until the Raiders traded Gareon Conley to Houston. Following Conley's departure, Mullen started the final 10 games, and he was impressive in coverage, allowing 6.6 yards per target and two touchdowns. The 22-year-old is in line to be the team's No. 1 corner in 2020 even if the team retains Daryl Worley.

Johnathan Abram
News
Abram was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 24-year-old was placed on the COVID-19 list Thursday due to his close contact with Trent Brown (illness), but he's returning to the active roster when first eligible. Abram should return to his starting role after being forced to miss the Week 7 loss to the Buccaneers.

Dylan Mabin
News
Mabin (undisclosed) signed a reserve/future contract with the Raiders on Monday.

Mabin dealt with an unspecified injury during the end of the 2019 season while on the Raiders' practice squad. The 22-year-old appears to be past that issue, and he'll seek a depth/special-teams role with the Raiders in 2020.

John Simpson
News
Simpson (shoulder) is active for Monday's game versus the Saints.

Simpson entered Monday questionable after suffering a shoulder injury during the practice week, but he'll be on standby Monday since the Raiders' offensive line is pretty banged up.

Gabe Jackson
News
Jackson has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and will play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Jackson tested negative again Saturday, clearing him for Sunday's game after the guard was placed on the COVID-19 list because he came into contact with Trent Brown, who tested positive. Jackson will start at right guard Sunday.

Dallin Leavitt
News
The Raiders signed Leavitt to the active roster Friday.

Leavitt was on the Raiders' practice squad, but he'll add depth at safety following news that Johnathan Abram (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bills. The 26-year-old Leavitt played 15 games for the Raiders in 2019 and recorded 10 tackles.

Derek Carrier
News
Carrier caught his lone target for four yards in the Raiders' season finale against the Broncos, finishing the 2019 campaign with 13 receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown on 17 targets in 16 games.

Carrier assumed the No. 2 role at tight end following a season-ending knee injury to rookie Foster Moreau in Week 14, and the former could begin the 2020 campaign as Darren Waller's (thumb) primary backup with Moreau's potential availability currently uncertain. Carrier has one year remaining on his contract, but he's proven reliable with zero missed games through two seasons with the Raiders.

Sam Young
News
Young was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers with a knee injury.

Young started at right tackle because Trent Brown (illness) is on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Brandon Parker is expected to take over at the position with Young on the sidelines.

Jaryd Jones-Smith
News
Jones-Smith signed a contract with San Francisco on Monday.

Jones-Smith finished the 2019 season as part of San Francisco's practice squad, and he'll now receive an opportunity to win a roster spot following Monday's signing.

Alec Ingold
News
Ingold caught two of four targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 40-32 win over the Chiefs.

Ingold, whose season-high 22 offensive snaps surpassed both Devontae Booker (15) and Jalen Richard (14) on Sunday, has now tallied two receptions in three of the Raiders' past four games. The second-year fullback has logged just one rushing attempt all year, however, limited primarily to a blocking role out of the backfield.

Derek Carr
News
Carr completed 24 of 36 passes for 284 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Raiders' 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed twice for 19 yards and fumbled once, but it was recovered by the offense.

Carr and the Raiders appeared to be on their way to a prolific afternoon after the veteran quarterback hit Nelson Agholor with a perfect 20-yard scoring strike on a post pattern early in the first quarter. However, Carr was able to lead only one other first-half scoring march -- one that culminated in a 42-yard field goal -- and added just a one-yard scoring toss to Darren Waller the rest of the way as far as fantasy impact plays are concerned. However, Carr's numbers weren't bad in a cumulative sense, as he managed multiple TDs for the fifth straight contest and posted his third-highest yardage tally of the season. With the blowout loss now behind them, Carr and his teammates will look to atone in Week 8 against the Browns.

Nick O'Leary
News
O'Leary, who underwent an angioplasty last month to reduce a 100 percent blockage of an artery in his heart, is expected to be able to return to football next year, Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post reports.

The tight end, who is expected to recover fully from the procedure, relayed Monday that he's feeling good and noted that it's the fact that he'll be on blood thinners for the next six months that will keep him off the football field this coming season. For now, O'Leary is on the Raiders' reserve/non-football injury list. The 27-year-old, who is known for his pass-blocking skills, recorded 13 catches for 109 yards and one touchdown over the course of 12 total games between the Dolphins and Jaguars in 2019.

Injury
Chest - NFI-R for Week 9 at L.A. Chargers
Erik Harris
News
Harris posted 74 tackles, eight pass breakups and three interceptions over 16 games in 2019.

Harris started 14 of 16 games, and he may have garnered additional playing time since Karl Joseph (foot) and first-round pick Johnathan Abram (shoulder) missed a combined 22 games. The 29-year-old Harris performed well by notching a career high in tackles and running back two of his picks for touchdowns. Abram will be back and likely in a starting role in 2020, but Joseph's situation is uncertain since he underwent surgery and will be an unrestricted free agent in March. If Joseph isn't retained, Harris will likely be a full-time starter next year.

Nathan Peterman
News
Peterman agreed to a restructured contract that will pay $1 million -- all guaranteed -- in 2020, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Peterman inked a one-year, $2.133 million contract in April, but none of that money was guaranteed. Presumed No. 2 quarterback Marcus Mariota is dealing with an undisclosed injury, so it makes sense for the Raiders to rework a mutually beneficial deal that will likely keep Peterman rostered through the entire 2020 season. If Mariota gets healthy, however, Peterman could be a healthy scratch on gameday.

Kolton Miller
News
Miller has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and will play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Miller came into close contact with Trent Brown, who tested positive, but now Miller has completed enough negative tests to be cleared. He'll start at left tackle Sunday and protect Derek Carr's blindside.

Nick Bowers
News
The Raiders signed Bowers to the practice squad Sunday, Tadd Haislop of SportingNews.com reports.

Bowers spent the offseason in Las Vegas, but he wasn't able to parley his way into a depth role at tight end. The undrafted rookie out of Penn State will instead get a chance to further his development on the practice squad.

Javin White
News
White was waived by the Raiders on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

White signed as an undrafted free agent out of UNLV this offseason, failing to make a lasting impression on the coaching staff. It's likely the team could bring him back to the practice squad for 2020.

Breeland Speaks
News
The Raiders signed Speaks to the practice squad Friday.

A 2018 second-round pick, Speaks' career has been derailed by a knee injury and a suspension in December of 2019 for violating the league's substance abuse policy. His suspension is expected to be lifted following Week 4, so he could add depth at defensive end for the Raiders moving forward.

Robert Davis
News
Davis was placed on the Raiders' practice squad injured list Tuesday.

The 25-year-old dealt with a lower body injury in training camp before joining Las Vegas' practice squad in late September, though it's unclear if the current injury is related to the previous one. Davis appeared in six games between Philadelphia and Washington last year, catching two passes for 17 yards.

Injury
Undisclosed - Out for Week 9 at L.A. Chargers. Expected Return - Week 10
Maurice Hurst
News
Hurst (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Vincent Bonsignore of The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Hurst landed on the COVID-19 list 10 days ago but is now able to return to the practice field. He is averaging a little under 27 defensive snaps per game this season, but it's difficult to say what his workload will be like Sunday given his extended absence.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 9 at L.A. Chargers
Foster Moreau
News
Moreau was not targeted on any of his 11 offensive snaps during Sunday's 45-20 loss to Tampa Bay.

Moreau has garnered a steady workload of 10-15 offensive snaps in each of his appearances this season, save for a Week 2 anomaly in which he accumulated 32 snaps against New Orleans. The LSU product has flashed promise with two catches of 24-plus yards, but he otherwise has registered just two receptions for nine yards on the year. Starting tight end Darren Waller has dominated the position, and the entire team for that matter, with 55 targets through seven weeks.

Jason Witten
News
Witten caught both of his targets for six yards in Sunday's 40-32 win over the Chiefs.

Witten logged a season-high 38 offensive snaps, but the veteran was limited to just 3.0 yards per reception. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Darren Waller continued to shine with a team-high five catches on seven targets for 48 yards and a touchdown. Witten remains ahead of 2019 fourth-rounder Foster Moreau in the pecking order, however.

Richie Incognito
News
Incognito (Achilles) is showing improvement in his recovery, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

It's unclear where exactly the veteran currently stands in his progression, but coach Jon Gruden said "[Incognito] is getting closer to returning." The 37-year-old has been on injured reserve since suffering the Achilles injury Week 2 against the Saints.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Henry Ruggs III
News
Ruggs secured two of three targets for 35 yards in the Raiders' 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

The rookie speedster was contained by the Buccaneers' improving secondary save for a 29-yard grab, leading to his second-lowest yardage tally of the four games he's suited up for. Ruggs has now seen only three targets apiece in each of his last three contests, so he remains very big-play-dependent for his fantasy production. He'll look to up his production versus a vulnerable Browns secondary in Week 8.

Nick Kwiatkoski
News
Kwiatkoski (pectoral) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

The 27-year-old missed the past two games with the pectoral injury, but he'll be back on the field for Week 4. Kwiatkoski had six tackles in 26 snaps before exiting the season opener and figures to play a significant role in the middle of the Las Vegas defense.

Chris Smith
News
The Raiders released Smith on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Smith was a late addition to training camp, signing Aug. 25 with a little over a week left. The 28-year-old defensive end failed to make enough of an impact to retain a reserve role, as Las Vegas opted to keep Arden Key and Carl Nassib as the primary backups to Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby.

Andre James
News
James (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

James was considered questionable due to the ankle issue but has been cleared to play versus Detroit. The 30-year-old should receive the start at center with Rodney Hudson (lower leg) inactive.

Daniel Carlson
News
Carlson made both his field-goal attempts and converted a pair of extra-point tries in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Carlson continues to provide consistent kicking production with at least eight points in all six of the Raiders' contests this season. The team now travels to Cleveland for a matchup against the Browns, who just gave up 34 points to the 1-5-1 Bengals.

Brandon Parker
News
Parker (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Scott Bair of NBCBayArea.com reports.

Parker had been dealing with a minor ankle injury throughout the past couple of weeks, but he appears to be back at full strength during Monday's session. He could see additional reps at right tackle with Breno Giacomini nursing an undisclosed injury.

Theo Riddick
News
Riddick was reverted back to the Raiders' practice squad Monday, according to the NFL transaction log.

Riddick was called up to the active roster for the team's Week 4 matchup against the Bills. However, he logged only seven snaps and earned two carries, gaining 13 yards. With Jalen Richard (ankle) battling injury, however, Riddick could be back with the team in a Week 5 matchup against the Chiefs.

Trent Brown
News
Coach Jon Gruden said Monday that Brown, who is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, has a chance to return for Sunday's game versus the Browns, Bill Williamson of RaidersSnakepit.com reports.

This is encouraging news for the Raiders, as interim right tackle Sam Young exited this past Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with a knee injury as well. Brown would be a major boost to a Raiders' offensive line that just got bullied by the Buccaneers' front seven, but he'll still need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocol before returning to action.

Injury
Illness - Questionable for Week 9 at L.A. Chargers
Jeff Heath
News
Heath (shoulder) said practices in Las Vagas have been "a completely different dynamic when pads are on," Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

"The game seems to speed up. . . and we need a lot of practices in pads before we're ready to play," Heath said. Having recovered from January shoulder surgery, Heath is now able to turn his full attention toward getting up to speed in the Raiders' defensive scheme. The former Cowboy stands to compete for starting free safety reps with Erik Harris throughout training camp.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for Week 9 at L.A. Chargers
Lamarcus Joyner
News
Joyner (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers.

Joyner pulled up lame in the Week 5 win over the Chiefs, but after staying on the practice field all week, he's been deemed good to go. He has a tough test ahead with the Buccaneers coming to town, as both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are healthy. Joyner's been sturdy in coverage this year, however, letting up a 91.2 passer rating and just one touchdown when targeted.

Trent Sieg
News
Sieg signed a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday.

Sieg was an exclusive-rights free agent and was unlikely to go anywhere else if the Raiders wanted him back. He should be considered the favorite to open the 2019 campaign as Oakland's long snapper.

Arden Key
News
The Raiders placed Key (foot) on injured reserve Thursday.

Key suffered a broken foot during Week 9's win over the Lions. He visited Dr. Robert Anderson to receive a second opinion on the injury, but it appears as though the second-year pro received no alternatives but to prematurely end his 2019 campaign. Key will turn his focus toward making a full recovery for the 2020 season. Quentin Poling has been promoted from the practice squad to occupy Key's former spot on the 53-man roster.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 9 at L.A. Chargers
Keisean Nixon
News
Nixon (hip) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers.

Nixon primarily plays on special teams, so his absence won't shake up the defensive dynamic much. He'll aim to return Week 8 against the Browns.

Hunter Renfrow
News
Renfrow caught four of six targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Renfrow was back on quarterback Derek Carr's radar following the team's bye, having been targeted just once in Week 5 at Kansas City. The Clemson product will now face a Browns secondary that just gave up over 400 passing yards in a close win over the Bengals on Sunday.

Devontae Booker
News
Booker rushed for five yards on three carries and caught both his targets for nine yards in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Booker wasn't the only Raider to struggle on the ground, as starter Josh Jacobs also averaged just 1.7 yards per carry. Despite Jacobs' ineffectiveness Sunday, he'll remain the primary option out of the backfield when the Raiders travel to Cleveland in Week 8 while Booker retains backup duties alongside Jalen Richard.

Nick Usher
News
Usher (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Raiders on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Usher was moved to the Raiders' Injured reserve list last week with an undisclosed injury. The linebacker is now free to sign on with any club willing to take him.

Injury
Isaiah Johnson
News
Johnson (back) says he's 100 percent healthy, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

The 2019 fourth-round pick endured a difficult rookie campaign, starting with a concussion and facial fracture early in the preseason. He returned from injured reserve in November and logged 63 special-teams snaps in five games, but a bulging disc in his back required surgery shortly after the season. While he'll likely open training camp with the second- or third-string defense, Johnson has the physical traits of a high-end starter, boasting 4.40 speed at 6-2, 210.

A.J. Cole
News
Cole (foot) is active for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs.

Cole will resume his role as the team's starting punter.

Josh Jacobs
News
Jacobs (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

So far there's nothing to suggest that Jacobs' status for Sunday's game against the Browns is in any danger. As long as he's good to go this weekend, the running back will look to bounce back from a 10-carry, 17-yard rushing effort in this Sunday's 45-20 loss to the 5-2 Buccaneers, who've allowed a league-low 66 yards per game on the ground to date.

Denzelle Good
News
Good has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and will play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Good came into contact with Trent Brown, who tested positive. After another negative test Saturday, Good has been cleared for action. He'll start at left guard Sunday.
