Top Cory James News

  • Cory James: Works out for 49ers

    James worked out for the 49ers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    James seems to have recovered from the meniscus tear he suffered in 2017. He has not played a snap in the NFL since that time.

  • Cory James: Waived by Raiders

    James (knee) was waived by the Raiders on Friday due to a failed physical, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    James ended the 2017 season on injured reserve due to a torn meniscus and apparently isn't back to 100 percent, resulting in his failed physical. He'll be free to sign with any team for the 2018 season if he clears waivers.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Hits injured reserve

    The Raiders placed James (knee) was on injured reserve Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    James missed the last two games with a torn meniscus and had deferred arthroscopic knee surgery in hopes of playing through the injury, but will now require the procedure after failing to demonstrate much progress, according to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. James' shutdown likely paves the way for Nicholas Morrow, who has racked up 16 tackles over the past two weeks, to continue seeing the bulk of the snaps at weakside linebacker.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Will watch from sidelines Sunday

    James (knee) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    The Raiders have given up 400 yards of total offense only three times this season, and two of those times James was inactive. The second-year pro is a stud when he's on the field, accruing 56 tackles (42 solo) through 10 games, and he left early in three of those contests. Nicholas Morrow is likely to take over at weak-side linebacker.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Doubtful for Sunday

    James (knee) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    James, who missed last week's win over the Giants, was unable to practice at all throughout the week due to his knee injury. Nicholas Morrow would likely be in line to start in James' place at outside linebacker in Week 14 after logging a season-high nine tackles against the Giants during James' absence.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Won't play Sunday

    James (knee) is listed an inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    James was never more than a limited participant in practice this week and will sit out for the first time since Week 7. Nicholas Morrow is a likely replacement at weak-side linebacker for the Raiders on Sunday.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Questionable Sunday

    The Raiders have listed James (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    James was unable to practice Wednesday, but he was able to put in limited work the rest of the week. His status Sunday will likely be determined by how he's feeling after going through pregame warmups. Nicholas Morrow would presumably be in line to fill in at weak-side linebacker should the 24-year-old ultimately sit out.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Gearing up Sunday

    James (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    The second-year pro has been nursing this injury since Oct. 11, but it has only kept him out of one game. James has 45 tackles (33 solo) and a forced fumble through eight games this season, yet his inconsistencies -- he has four game with four or less tackles -- make him difficult to deploy in most fantasy formats.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Active for Sunday's game

    James (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

    The 24-year-old has been dealing with the injury since Week 5 and missed most of the next two games as a result. He was able to return for Week 8 against the Bills and turned in limited practices on Thursday and Friday this week. He should be good to go in this one.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Questionable for Week 9

    James (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

    James was only able to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday due to the knee issue. Although he was dealing with the same injury heading into the Week 8 loss to the Bills, he still managed to suit up, logging eight tackles across 49 defensive snaps.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Will play Sunday in Buffalo

    James (knee) is listed as active Week 8 against the Bills.

    James was a limited participant in practice all week, but will be cleared to suit up for his regular outside linebacker role. Backup Nicholas Morrow (ankle) is also active for the contest, providing insurance if James' knee flares up again.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Questionable for Week 8

    James (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

    James practiced on a limited basis this week after being a late scratch for last Thursday's win over the Chiefs. If the 24-year-old is unable to play against the Chargers, Nicholas Morrow (ankle) would be the next man up, but he is also listed as questionable.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Will not play Thursday

    James (knee) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Chiefs.

    James practiced on a limited basis this week and was listed as questionable. The 23-year-old was active for Sunday's loss to the Chargers but played only seven defensive snaps. Nicholas Morrow played 62 of 65 snaps Sunday and could be due for another heavy workload as the Raiders attempt to keep Chiefs rookie tailback Kareem Hunt in check Thursday.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Active for Sunday's game

    James (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

    James is second on the team with 34 tackles (23 solo), so his return will be important against a strong Chargers running game that features Melvin Gordon. Due to his workhorse role of playing almost every down, James is a solid IDP option in almost every format.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Nursing knee injury

    James sustained a knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    The extent of James' injury isn't clear, nor is his potential availability for the Raiders' Week 6 matchup with the Chargers. His level of participation in practice this week should shed more light on the matter.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Leads Raiders in tackles once again

    James notched 10 solo tackles to lead the team for the second straight week in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

    Two of James' 10 tackles went for losses. Although he has been very active on the field, the 24-year-old has yet to record a sack or turnover this season, but that is just seemingly a matter of time. He played all 64 snaps in the contest and figures to continue being a workhorse for the defense going forward.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Leads Raiders in tackles Sunday

    James racked up 12 tackles (six solo), one tackle for loss and a forced fumble during Sunday's 27-10 loss to the Redskins.

    James was one of four Raiders to play every defensive snap during the team's disappointing Week 3 loss, leading the way in tackles for the first time this season. He's gradually increased his production each week and will look to maintain the recent momentum at Denver on Sunday.

  • Raiders' Cory James: Participates fully Thursday

    James (knee) was a full participant at the Raiders' practice Thursday.

    James being limited for Wednesday's practice was likely more precautionary than anything, as it seems like he should be able to play against the Jets on Sunday.
