  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Comes off IR

    Mariota (quadriceps) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

    Mariota returned to practice this week, prompting his return. The Raiders had hinted the mobile quarterback would be used in a number of sub packages designed specifically for him earlier this year, but the resignation of coach Jon Gruden could complicate that notion. Expect Mariota to assume the backup job behind Derek Carr.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Back at practice Wednesday

    The Raiders designated Mariota (quadriceps) to return to from injured reserve Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    As expected, Mariota will return to practice this week, opening a 21-day window for him to be activated from injured reserve. It's unclear if the 27-year-old will be available for Sunday's game at Denver, but once he's deemed ready to go, he should supplant Nathan Peterman as Derek Carr's top backup.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Nearing return to practice

    Coach Jon Gruden believes Mariota (quadriceps) will return to practice this week, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Mariota has spent the first five weeks of the season on injured reserve with the quadriceps issue, but he's apparently close to receiving the return designation and taking the practice field. It remains to be seen whether the 27-year-old is back in time to suit up for Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, but he appears to be in the final stages of his recovery.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Moved to IR

    Mariota (quad) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    It's not a surprising development given Mariota was expected to miss multiple weeks after aggravating a quadriceps injury in Monday's overtime win over the Ravens. The 2015 first-round pick was essentially a gadget player to begin the season, but the designation means Nathan Peterman will be the top backup behind starter Derek Carr.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Facing multi-week absence

    The Raiders expect Mariota to miss multiple weeks after he aggravated an existing quadriceps injury in Monday's 33-27 overtime win over the Ravens, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Mariota picked up the injury on a 31-yard run on what proved to be his lone play of the game in the season opener. While Derek Carr is secure as Las Vegas' No. 1 quarterback, head coach Jon Gruden had planned to make use of Mariota's running ability in a few packages per game, so the signal-caller's expected absence will rob the Raiders of a dynamic weapon. Nathan Peterson will step in as the top understudy to Carr for however long Mariota is sidelined.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Does not practice Wednesday

    Mariota (quadriceps) missed practice Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    Mariota injured his quadriceps in his only snap in Monday's season-opening win over the Ravens. The quarterback was able to run for a big gain early in the game, which resulted in his injury. If Mariota is unable to play Sunday against the Steelers, expect Nathan Peterman to takeover as Derek Carr's backup.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Aggravates quad injury in opener

    Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said Mariota aggravated a strained quadriceps during his 31-yard run in the first quarter of Monday's 33-27 overtime win over the Ravens, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Mariota created a big gain with his legs on his lone snap of the day, and Gruden suggested the quarterback likely would have been featured in a few more packages over the course of the game had he not suffered the injury. The Raiders aren't yet aware of the extent of Mariota's injury, but Gruden said he fears the No. 2 signal-caller could be headed for a long-term absence after the quad issue kept him sidelined for the entire preseason, per Vic Tafur of The Athletic. If Mariota isn't available for the Raiders' Week 2 game in Pittsburgh and beyond, Nathan Peterman would serve as the backup to starter Derek Carr.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Absent from injury report

    Mariota (quadriceps) isn't listed on Thursday's injury report ahead of Monday night's matchup against the Ravens.

    Mariota was held out during the preseason since the team wanted him to fully recover from a quad strain, but he appears to be back to 100 percent ahead of the season opener. He'll serve as the top backup to Derek Carr in 2021.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Won't play in preseason finale

    Coach Jon Gruden doesn't want to play Mariota in Sunday's preseason finale because he has not fully recovered from his quad injury, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    Mariota is cleared to play, but Gruden is hesitant to throw the quarterback -- due to his play style -- into preseason action until he is 100 percent recovered. The Oregon product doesn't appear to have suffered a setback, but rather the Raiders are just treating their backup quarterback's injury with an abundance of caution. In his only appearance last season, Mariota threw for 226 yards and ran for 88 more while scoring two total touchdowns. In his absence, Nathan Peterman is expected to play the entirety of Sunday's contest.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Sits due to quad strain

    Mariota didn't play in Saturday's 17-16 preseason win over the Rams due to a quadriceps strain, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    Though Mariota dressed for the contest and was expected to make his preseason debut, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said after the game that the quarterback was "just not ready to go" while he works back from a quad strain. Fortunately for Mariota, he's not believed to be dealing with a major setback and still was available in an emergency Saturday, so he doesn't appear at risk of being sidelined to begin the regular season. Gruden remains hopeful Mariota will be ready to go for the preseason finale Sunday, Aug. 29 versus the 49ers.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Cleared to play Saturday

    Mariota (leg) will play Saturday against the Rams, Alex Leatherwood of The Athletic reports.

    Mariota missed the opening preseason tilt, although it seems likely the veteran could have played if necessary given that he warmed up prior to the contest. The Raiders are expected to utilize third-string quarterback Nathan Peterman heavily, with Mariota mixing in minimally along with nominal starter Derek Carr.

  • Raiders' Marcus Mariota: In uniform Saturday

    Mariota (leg) is in uniform and warming up in advance of Saturday's preseason opener against the Seahawks, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    It's not yet clear if Mariota will see any action Saturday, but his odds of doing so appear far better than they did Thursday, when it was reported he could be held out of Saturday's contest. Even if Mariota does see action, it seems unlikely the veteran will see significant snaps in the Raiders' exhibition opener.
