  • Raiders' Trayvon Mullen: Placed on PUP

    The Raiders placed Mullen (undisclosed) on the PUP list Tuesday. The nature of Mullen's injury is unclear, though he was limited to only five games in 2021 due to a toe issue. He also underwent an unspecified surgery in May, so the fact that he's still not ready to take the field is a bit concerning. Assuming he's medically cleared at some point during training camp, Mullen should be in line to serve as a starting boundary cornerback for the Raiders.

  • Raiders' Trayvon Mullen: Undergoing surgery

    Mullen (undisclosed) is expected to undergo minor surgery, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports. Mullen played in five games last season, missing the majority of the year with a toe injury. After spending nine weeks on IR, Mullen attempted to return in Week 14 against Kansas City, but he aggravated the injury and was shut down for the rest of the season. With little known about the injury or the surgery that is taking place, a recovery time for Mullen is not yet known.

It's unclear if his current issue is related, but he's set to miss additional action.

  • Raiders' Trayvon Mullen: Ready to rock

    Mullen (illness) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Jets. Mullen fell under the weather during Friday's practice but he presumably passed a COVID-19 test and was cleared to play.

  • Raiders' Trayvon Mullen: Questionable with illness

    Mullen was added to the injury report with an illness ahead of Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports. Mullen was a full participant at practice earlier in the week, but he appears to have come under the weather Friday. As a result, he will presumably have to pass a COVID-19 test to go along with getting his health back up to par before kickoff Sunday in order to play. If he is ultimately unable to go, look for Amik Robertson and Damon Arnette to see increased roles in the defensive backfield.

    Mullen was forced out of Sunday's game against the Chargers with a hamstring injury.

  • Raiders' Trayvon Mullen: In concussion protocol

    Mullen (concussion/neck) did not practice Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Mullen was limited in Wednesday's practice, so Thursday's lack of participation represents a step in the wrong direction. If he's unable to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol in time for Sunday's regular-season finale in Denver, Nevin Lawson will likely play an expanded role on defense.
