  • Raiders' Nate Hobbs: Returns to practice

    Hobbs (shoulder) participated in offseason work as the Raiders' starting nickelback, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

    Hobbs finished his rookie season with 71 tackles, three passes defensed, one sack and one interception across 16 games. The 2021 fifth-round pick underwent offseason shoulder surgery following his first NFL campaign, but he appears to have cleared rehab and should be healthy for Week 1. Regardless, Hobbs may still face league discipline after being arrested twice in January, so his status as a starter is tentative.

  • Raiders' Nate Hobbs: Avoids DUI charge

    Hobbs (shoulder) is no longer facing a DUI charge following his Jan. 3 arrest in Las Vegas, but he plead guilty Wednesday to a careless driving charge, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

    He also has a pending reckless driving charge from a separate incident that occurred Jan. 16, approximately two weeks after the first arrest. Hobbs won't get the guaranteed suspension that comes with a DUI charge, but he may still face league discipline of some kind. He's also recovering from shoulder surgery, after working as the Raiders' nickel cornerback for most of his rookie campaign in 2021.

  • Raiders' Nate Hobbs: Undergoes back surgery

  • Raiders' Nate Hobbs: Expected to play Week 18

    Raiders interim head coach Rich Bissacia said he expects Hobbs to play in Sunday's game against the Chargers after the cornerback was arrested on a misdemeanor DUI charge Monday in Las Vegas, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports. "Obviously, we take that extremely serious, organizationally and certainly within our team," Bisaccia said Wednesday. "So based on what we've learned, at this time, we expect Nate to play. It's a legal matter and other than that I have really nothing else and we'll leave it at that."

    Bisaccia's comments suggest that the Raiders will leave it up to the NFL to decide whether Hobbs faces any punishment after the rookie fifth-round draft pick was found asleep in a vehicle parked on the exit ramp of a parking garage and then arrested after failing a field sobriety test. Hobbs' attorneys have since contested the DUI charge, so the league will presumably let the legal process play out before deciding whether Hobbs' actions warrant a fine and/or a suspension. The 22-year-old has enjoyed a strong debut campaign as the Raiders' nickel cornerback, tallying 67 tackles, an interception, a forced fumble and a sack through 15 games.

    Hobbs was taken into policy custody after he failed a field sobriety test, which was administered after officers found him asleep in a car parked on the exit ramp of a parking garage.
