Olawale (quadriceps) was absent from the Raiders' injury report Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Olawale has been held back by a quadriceps injury since the latter portion of training camp. With the injury seemingly in the rear-view mirror, Olawale could be on track to make his season debut Sunday against the Redskins, unless the Raiders elect to forgo using a fullback for the matchup.
Olawale (quadriceps) is inactive Sunday for the Raiders' Week 2 game against the Jets. Olawale's absence will leave the Raiders without a traditional fullback Sunday, but tight ends Lee Smith and Clive Walford are capable of lining up in the backfield when needed to pave the way for Marshawn Lynch and company. Since Olawale was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday, it's unclear if the quad injury is actually keeping him on the sideline Sunday or if he's simply being left inactive in a coach's decision.
Olawale (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Olawale was limited Wednesday but participated fully at practice Thursday and Friday, so the expectation is that he should be ready to play Sunday. Even if active, the veteran fullback is unlikely to receive a consistent enough workload to warrant fantasy consideration.
Olawale (quadriceps) participated fully at the Raiders' practice Thursday. This is extremely encouraging news for Olawale after he was held out of the Raiders' season-opening victory over the Titans. The veteran fullback is unlikely to hold much fantasy value on a consistent basis this season, but he is seeing increased odds to suit up for Week 2.
Olawale (quadriceps) was limited at the Raiders' practice Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic San Francisco reports. Olawale was sidelined for the season opener, but his participation Wednesday is encouraging for his Week 2 status. The fullback primary touches the ball in short-yardage situations, but he'll occasionally pick up targets as check-down option for quarterback Derek Carr. That being said, he won't pick up enough volume either as a runner or receiver to make waves on the fantasy landscape this season.
