Lee (ankle) was activated off injured reserve Monday. Lee landed on IR after suffering the ankle injury Week 3 but will now rejoin the Raiders for the final four games of the season. The 24-year-old started two games before going down with the injury, but it's unclear what role he'll return to for the stretch run.
Lee (ankle) has been designated to return from injured reserve, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Lee can now return to the practice field, but he will not be eligible to play in a game until Week 13. His eventual presence will be good news for a linebacker corps still trying to replace Vontaze Burfict (suspension), but Lee being the second of Oakland's two players to return from IR means neither Johnathan Abram (shoulder) or Nathan Peterman (elbow) will be able to return at any point in 2019.
Lee (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Lee suffered an undisclosed ankle injury during Sunday's loss to the Vikings. It's not clear if he's a candidate to return at any point this season.
Lee (ankle) was officially ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against Minnesota. Lee suffered the injury on the first drive of the game, and was forced to get looked at in the medical tent. With fellow linebacker Vontaze Burfict (elbow) also suffering an injury in the game, the Raiders are down to three healthy linebackers. Expect the team to provide an update on Lee's status following the game or in the coming days.
Lee racked up 11 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Colts. Lee led the Raiders in tackles as he brought down the ball carrier 11 times in just 43 defensive snaps. He's slated to start at middle linebacker once again Thursday night in a contest against the 49ers.
