Bryce Hager: Released by Raiders

Raiders' Bryce Hager: Inks deal in Las Vegas
Hager signed with the Raiders on Friday.
Hager struggled to secure a consistent role on the Rams defense over five seasons, so perhaps a change of scenery can help the 27-year-old linebacker. While a starting role looks unattainable with Nick Kwiatkoski and Nicholas Morrow on the roster, he'll seek more than the 14.6 defensive snaps per game he averaged in Los Angeles last year....

Coach Sean McVay said Monday that Hager is dealing with a shoulder stinger and will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against Seattle, J.B. Long of ESPN LA reports.
Hager suffered the injury early in the first half against the Buccaneers on Sunday, and as evidenced by this news, could be forced to miss more time. The Rams didn't practice Monday, but if they did, Hager would've been a non-participant on a short week per Omar Ruiz of NFL Network, which doesn't bode well for his chances to play.
