Heeney recorded six tackles (six solo) during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Heeney racked up the third-most solo tackles for the Raiders during the team's Week 2 matchup, but lost a few snaps towards the end of the game to rookie Cory James as the defense struggled to stop the Falcons. According to coach Jack Del Rio, Oakland figures to once again try James at middle linebacker in spots throughout next week's contest against the Titans, Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com reports. It'll be a situation to monitor moving forward if James is able to become the better option.
