Redskins' Donald Penn: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's clash against the Dolphins.

Penn came into the game deemed questionable after he suffered the hamstring injury during Week 5's loss to the Patriots. Now that the veteran is officially healthy, look for him to assume his usual role as the team's starting left tackle for the game.

Redskins' Donald Penn: Questionable Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game at Miami.

The veteran offensive tackle suffered the hamstring injury during last Sunday's loss to the Patriots, but the fact he was able to practice fully Friday should put him on track to play Week 6. Geron Christian would likely fill in at left tackle should Penn suffer a setback.

Redskins' Donald Penn: Inks one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn will sign a one-year contract with the Redskins on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The veteran will add some insurance to the offensive line, as star Trent Williams continues to sit out training camp due to a fractured relationship with the franchise. Penn has had a solid career in the NFL to this point that is highlighted by three Pro Bowl appearances. As long as he gets up to speed, the 36-year-old should have a chance to compete for the starting left tackle role sans Williams.

Donald Penn: Parts ways with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders and Penn have opted to go their separate ways in 2019, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Raiders will save $5.475 million against the cap by letting Penn walk. The veteran tackle started just four games last season before a groin injury ended his campaign, but Penn intends to play left tackle again in 2019 and is now on the open market.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn (groin) will not return this season, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

It had been speculated that Penn wouldn't play again this season. With confirmation coming Wednesday, the veteran offensive lineman will have to wait until 2019 to get back on the gridiron. He should have plenty of time to get back to 100 percent before the start of offseason activities.

Raiders' Donald Penn: Unlikely to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden said Thursday that he doesn't anticipate Penn (leg) playing again this season, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Gruden further noted that a decision on whether to bring Penn back from injured reserve won't be made for at least a couple days. With the Raiders long eliminated from playoff contention, it appears likely that the team will decide not to risk any further injury to the right tackle.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn (foot) was removed from the PUP list and participated in Tuesday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Mercury News reports.

Raiders' Donald Penn: Agrees to contract restructure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn (foot) agreed to a restructured contract with the Raiders on Monday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The Raiders revamped Penn's contract last offseason, awarding him a two-year, $21 million extension. After the Pro-Bowler suffered a Lisfranc fracture late last season, Oakland wanted to bring Penn back to the table. The new deal will provide Penn with more guaranteed money than was originally allotted over the course of the next two years, but his contract comes with a new team-friendly framework that did not previously exist. Penn has resided on the Physically Unable to Perform list for all of training camp thus far.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn will begin his camp later than his teammates, temporarily opening a spot on the 90-man roster for the Raiders' brass to get a longer look at some other players. There's no indication of when he's expected to return to practice, but the veteran tackle didn't face any limitations during minicamp.

Penn underwent surgery to address a Lisfranc injury in December and has eased his way into practice over the course of the team's spring workouts. The lineman's full participation in minicamp suggests he should be fully available once training camp opens in late July.
