Vanderdoes (knee) will remain on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list for the remainder of the 2018 season. Oakland's deadline to activate Vanderdoes to the 53-man roster came and passed Monday, relegating the second-year defensive tackle to the PUP list for the remainder of the season. It remains to be seen whether the decision to keep Vanderdoes on the PUP list came due to a setback in his recovery, or due to another undisclosed reason. Vanderdoes played all 16 games during his rookie year with the Raiders and will set his sights on a return during the 2019 season.
Vanderdoes (knee) will not suit up during the 2018 season, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Vanderdeos returned to practice last week, but the Raiders have ultimately elected to put the second-year defensive tackle on season-ending injured reserve rather than activate him to the 53-man roster. The former third-round pick will set his sights on the 2019 season.
Vanderdoes (knee) will not play against the Chargers on Sunday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. As expected, Vanderdoes will not make his 2018 debut Sunday. The Raiders will need to decide whether to promote the second-year pro to the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve before Week 11 kicks off, since Vanderdoes first returned to practice on Oct. 22. Vanderdoes is expected to be promoted to the active roster, giving him a good chance of suiting up against the Cardinals on Nov. 18.
Vanderdoes (knee) practiced for the first time this season Monday, Jerry McDonald of The Mercury News reports. Vanderdoes remains on the PUP list, and his return to practice begins a three-week period in which he can be activated to the 53-man roster at any point. Conversely, Vanderdoes can also be placed on injured reserve after the three-week window concludes. The second-year defensive tackle suffered a torn ACL last December, but he appears to be progressing in his recovery and nearing a return to the field. Expect a decision on Vanderdoes' ongoing status in the coming weeks.
Vanderdoes (ACL) was placed on the regular-season PUP list on Saturday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Vanderdoes opened training camp on the PUP and remained inactive through the preseason due to the torn ACL he suffered back in December. In opening the regular season on the PUP, Vanderdoes will be forced to miss the first six weeks of the regular season.
