  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Not close to return

    Morrow (ankle) is considered "two week to two week," Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

    Morrow has been on injured reserve since early September and has yet to suit up this season. His hypothetical return would provide a boost to the middle of the Raiders defense, as he racked up 78 total tackles as a starter in 2020.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Moves to injured reserve

    Morrow (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    Morrow suffered an ankle injury during the second preseason game and will be sidelined for at least the first three games of the year. Nick Kwiatkoski should have an increased role in his absence, though the Raiders also signed veteran K.J. Wright to bolster their depth at linebacker.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Could be out awhile

    Morrow (ankle) could be sidelined into the regular season, Bill Williamson of RaidersSnakepit.com reports.

    Morrow's ankle injury is apparently worse than originally expected. If he is indeed not ready for the season opener, Nick Kwiatkoski would be the likely candidate to replace him at middle linebacker. Durability has not been an issue for the 26-year-old in his career, as he has missed just two games during his four years with the Raiders.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Suffers ankle injury

    Morrow suffered an ankle injury during Saturday's preseason contest and will miss some time, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

    Morrow elected to stick with the Raiders after starting 11 games last season. He registered 78 tackles, three sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 14 total appearances. Nick Kwiatkoski and Max Richardson will get plenty of opportunities in Morrow's absence.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Remaining with Raiders

    Morrow agreed to a contract with Raiders on Tuesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

    The terms of the deal remain unclear, but the 25-year-old will continue his career in Las Vegas. Morrow started in 11 of 14 appearances last season and had 78 tackles (62 solo), three sacks, one interception and one forced fumble.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Activated from reserve list

    Morrow was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports.

    Morrow was a high-risk close contact to someone who contracted the virus, but he's tested negative and can return to team activities. The 25-year-old is slated to start at strong-side linebacker in Week 17 against the Broncos. Through 13 games this season, Morrow has produced 67 tackles, nine pass breakups, two sacks and an interception.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Now moves to COVID list

    Morrow was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    Morrow was held out of Wednesday's practice session with what was labeled by the team as a "non-injury issue," but now it's confirmed Las Vegas will have to fare without the 25-year-old linebacker for a Saturday night game against Miami. The Illinois-Greenville standout had started five consecutive games on defense prior to being ruled out for last Thursday's loss to the Chargers, tallying two sacks, a forced fumble and 36 tackles in that span.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Misses Wednesday's practice

    Morrow sat out Wednesday's practice with a non-injury issue.

    Morrow was held out of practice all of last week with a concussion and neck injury, but his midweek absence is reportedly not injury-related this time around. The 25-year-old's situation will merit monitoring, regardless, with Las Vegas heading into a matchup against Miami on a short week.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Out against Chargers

    Morrow (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Chargers, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    Morrow wasn't able to clear the league's five-step concussion protocol on a short week after sustaining the injury in last week's loss to the Colts. Raekwon McMillan and Kyle Wilber will fill in at linebacker while Morrow will try to pass the concussion protocol in time to face the Dolphins in Week 16.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Suffers concussion

    Morrow was diagnosed with a concussion after Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Colts, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    Morrow left in the fourth quarter, and he's currently in the league's five-step concussion protocol. It seems unlikely that he's ready in time for Thursday's game versus the Chargers. If he's indeed sidelined, either Raekwon McMillan or Kyle Wilber likely would start at strong-side linebacker.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Leaves Sunday's game

    Morrow is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts.

    Morrow is officially listed as questionable to return Sunday, but given that he exited with less than three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, it seems safe to rule him out. Whether he is placed in the concussion protocol will impact his chances for Thursday's upcoming game against the Chargers.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Best tackling effort of 2020

    Morrow recorded 10 solo tackles and two pass breakups in Sunday's 43-6 loss to the Falcons.

    Morrow started an eighth straight game and played 77 of 78 snaps on defense Sunday en route to his highest tackle total of the year, tying his career high in the category as well. He'll possess plenty of upside as long as he's in a starting role, but his weekly floor is low with an average of just 4.3 tackles per game as a starter.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Eight tackles Sunday

    Morrow recorded eight tackles (six solo) and a pass defensed across 78 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

    The linebacker now has 44 tackles (36 solo) on the season to go along with five passes defensed and one sack. The 25-year-old also has the second-highest snap count among Raiders linebackers this season, trailing only Cory Littleton.

  • Raiders' Nicholas Morrow: Registers nine stops

    Morrow made nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Patriots.

    Morrow is averaging seven tackles per game this season, and he's played every snap in each of the last two contests. His starting role is secure at strong-side linebacker, and he'll likely lead the team in tackles until Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) returns to the lineup, making Morrow a solid IDP play.
