Raiders' Frostee Rucker: Doubtful for Week 6
Rucker (neck) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
Rucker returned to practice in a limited capacity Friday, but that may not be enough for him to suit up for Week 6 after missing practice Wednesday and Thurdsay.

Raiders' Frostee Rucker: Signs with Oakland
Rucker signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Rucker comes to Oakland after spending five seasons with Arizona, having averaged 21 tackles per season and only once topping three sacks in a single campaign.

Cardinals' Frostee Rucker: Records 29 tackles
Rucker totaled 29 tackles (23 solo) and 1.5 sacks in 16 games for the Cardinals in 2017.
