    Cowboys activate wide receiver Brice Butler for Week 2

    Cowboys wide receiver Brice Butler is active for his first game as a Cowboy on Sunday at Philadelphia, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports. In two seasons with the Raiders, Butler racked up 30 catches (on 53 targets) for 383 yards and two touchdowns across 25 contests. He was inactive for the Raiders' opener this year, though, before he was sent to Dallas following Dez Bryant's foot injury. Butler will serve on the edge of the Cowboys' receiving corps, meaning he's unlikely to make much of an impact unless additional ailments befall the group.

He capped the scoring with a 16-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. "I thought Brice was good the other night," coach Jack Del Rio said, per ESPN. "How will that shape what we do? Guys that do well get more, guys that don't do as well get less. It's really pretty cut and dry. We're going to want to look at more of guys that do well and do good things with the reps they get. I thought he had a nice showing."

    Raiders' Kenbrell Thompkins paces quiet receiving attack Week 11

    Raiders wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins caught two of his three targets for a team-high 47 yards in his team's 13-6 loss to the Chargers in Week 11. Thompkins was responsible for one of the Raiders' few quality plays on offense, making a tough catch over the middle on a play from midfield and ripping off about 15 yards after the catch on a 35-yard play. The Raiders were unable to get into the end zone on the fourth-quarter drive though and settled for their second field goal of the day. Tight end Mychal Rivera shared the team lead in receptions with running back Latavius Murray, with the tight end catching three of his five targets for 40 yards. James Jones added 35 yards while catching two of his five targets, while Andre Homes caught just two of his six targets for 19 yards. Backup receiver Brice Butler managed to catch one of his three targets for 15 yards. The Raiders' passing attack will look for a big step up Thursday against the Chiefs.
