Hayden missed the first seven weeks of the season while recovering from a foot injury, but he's ready to roll for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Browns. Autry was signed to the team's practice squad on Sept. 1.
The Raiders have 12 days remaining to activate Hayden, or else he lands on the injured reserve list.
Hayden has missed 13 of 21 career games and has struggled when he has made it onto the field. Foot surgery has prevented him from playing this season. But he has shown signs of performing well in practice - he intercepted a pass in the Wednesday session.
"He needs to have small successes," Tony Sparano told the San Francisco Chronicle. "Wednesday was one. It's an important first step."
Hayden played eight games as a rookie before losing the rest of the year to a groin injury.
