Hayden (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Detroit. Hayden will be playing in his first game of the year after starting the season on the PUP list with his ankle injury.
Raiders cornerback D.J. Hayden wants to continue the positive momentum he built toward the end of last season, according to the team. "I was just out there playing," said Hayden when talking about 2014. "I just did what I could do to help the defense, but now, it's a whole new defense, a whole new scheme and I'm expecting a lot more good results this year." Hayden started the final eight games of the 2014 season and finished the season with 47 tackles, 11 passes defended and an interception.
The Raiders have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 16 matchup with the Bills: wide receivers Vincent Brown (groin) and Denarius Moore (knee, ankle), tight end Brian Leonhardt (concussion), cornerback Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), guard Tony Bergstrom, tackle Menelik Watson and defensive tackle Stacy McGee. Brown, Moore, Leonhard and Chewka were previously ruled out on the team's final injury report for Week 16. Bergstrom, Watson and McGee are healthy scratches. The team will have cornerback D.J. Hayden (back) and defensive tackle C.J. Wilson (knee) available after both players were listed as questionable to play. Also active are quarterback Derek Carr (thumb) and cornerback T.J. Carrie (ankle), both of whom were deemed probable. The Raiders are a 6 1/2-point underdog at home against the Bills.
