Raiders' Perry Riley: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (hamstring) is active for Saturday's game against the Colts.

Despite being limited in practice throughout the week due to a hamstring issue, Riley will suit up for Saturday's tilt. Riley, a middle linebacker, has just two games with more than five tackles this season.

Raiders' Perry Riley: Active for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Riley has been limited after sustaining an injury in Week 14. He should play middle linebacker in a key divisional matchup against San Diego.

Raiders' Perry Riley: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Riley was limited at practice throughout the week, and figures to be a true game-time decision Sunday. He presumably sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The veteran linebacker provided four tackles in the contest. Tyrell Adams and Daren Bates would presumably be in line for increased workloads providing depth at linebacker if Riley cannot go.

Raiders' Perry Riley: Leads Raiders in tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley racked up a season-high 10 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's win over the Bills.

Riley was able to lead the Raiders in tackles Sunday after a one-game absence due to a minor hamstring injury. Usual starter Cory James was dealing with a shoulder injury, so Riley's ability to step up at middle linebacker was a key for the team's defense. At this point it's unclear if James will be able to play in Week 14, so Riley may see a similar role against the Chiefs.

Raiders' Perry Riley: Active for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Riley's return gives the Raiders additional depth at linebacker.

Raiders' Perry Riley: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Because of the hamstring injury, Riley will miss his first game since joining the Raiders in October. Cory James will continue starting at middle linebacker, but will have little depth behind him.

Raiders' Perry Riley: Shines in Raiders' debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley recorded seven tackles (six solo) and a forced fumble during Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Riley led the Raiders in tackles during his first contest with the team after back-up middle linebacker Ben Heeney (undisclosed) was placed on IR earlier in the week. Riley could eventually overtake rookie Cory James as the starting middle linebacker, as James notched just two tackles (one solo) during the Week 5 victory. Although the Raiders' defense has struggled to stop opposing offenses at times throughout the season, the team will look to move to 5-1 next week against the Chiefs.

Raiders' Perry Riley: Signs with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley signed with the Raiders on Tuesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Riley was released by Washington before the beginning of the regular season after missing seven games last season due to a foot injury. In 2015, he recorded 43 tackles, three pass deflections, and two interceptions in nine games. He now heads to Oakland, where he figures to be a reserve middle linebacker after Ben Heeney (undisclosed) was placed on the IR on Tuesday. The veteran could make a run for the starting spot, which is currently held by rookie Cory James.

Perry Riley: Headed out of Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley was released by Washington on Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Limited to nine games last season, Riley recovered from a foot injury in time for training camp, but he couldn't beat out Mason Foster for a starting job alongside Will Compton. It's unclear if Washington proposed a pay cut prior to dumping the 30-year-old Riley and his $4 million salary. Should he catch on elsewhere, it will likely be on a contract much closer to the veteran's minimum.

Redskins' Perry Riley: Activated from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (foot) has been activated from the Redskins' PUP list ahead of Friday's practice.

Riley missed the final six games of last season due to a foot injury that required surgery, causing him to start training camp on the sidelines. However, now that he's healed enough, the veteran will take the practice field Friday. Entering the last year of his current contract, Riley will compete for reps at inside linebacker with Will Compton and Mason Foster.

Redskins' Perry Riley: Out for start of training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (foot) was placed on the PUP list for the start of training camp, The Washington Post reports.

Still recovering from the injury (and subsequent surgery) that cost him the final six games of last season, Riley may need to compete for a roster spot when/if he is ready to practice. The Redskins could deploy Will Compton and Mason Foster as the starting inside linebackers, and Riley's $4 million salary would be tough to justify for a backup at a non-premium position. Of course, the 28-year-old might consider taking a pay cut to stick around.

Redskins' Perry Riley: May need to fight for job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Even if he is healthy, Riley (foot) won't necessarily work with the first-team defense at the start of training camp, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Riley missed the final six games of last season, opening up a starting spot for Mason Foster alongside Will Compton. The Redskins went with that same duo during the offseason program, with Riley unavailable while rehabbing from November surgery. Riley is expected to be healthy for the start of camp, but while previously reports suggested he'd likely slot in as a starter, it now seems he'll have to compete with Compton and/or Foster. Entering the final season of a three-year, $12 million deal, Riley may find his roster spot in jeopardy if he doesn't win a starting job, as the Redskins can save approximately $4 million by releasing him.

Redskins' Perry Riley: Should be ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redskins coach Jay Gruden expects Riley (foot) to be ready for the start of training camp, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Riley had foot surgery in late November and missed the rest of the season, finishing with 43 tackles (23 solo) and two interceptions in nine games. Assuming no complications, he'll likely step back in as a starter at inside linebacker, with Mason Foster and Will Compton expected to compete for the other job. Riley has missed nine games over the past two years, but he did record 115+ tackles and 3+ sacks in back-to-back seasons not so long ago (2012-13).

Redskins' Perry Riley: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (foot) is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Packers.

Riley, who is recovering from surgery on his right foot, made his return to practice this past week, suggesting that he could be ready to go by next weekend should Washington advance to the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Redskins' Perry Riley: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Riley missed the final five weeks of the regular season after undergoing foot surgery in late November, so it's not clear if he will be available against the Packers come Sunday. If the 27-year-old linebacker were to miss this week's contest, Mason Foster, who has started alongside Will Compton at inside linebacker the last two weeks, could see an increase in snaps.

Redskins' Perry Riley: Likely out 3-6 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (foot) needs surgery and will likely be out for three-to-six weeks, the Washington Post's Mike Jones reports.

Riley is in serious danger of missing the rest of the regular season, but it does sound like he'd have a decent shot to return if the Redskins made the playoffs. If Keenan Robinson (shoulder) isn't ready for Monday's game against the Cowboys, Mason Foster or Houston Bates could get the start alongside Will Compton, the Redskins' top IDP option at linebacker.

Redskins' Perry Riley: May see decreased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley may lose playing time to Will Compton, the Washington Post reports.

In Week 9 Riley recorded zero tackles in 49 snaps while Compton had 10 in 52.

Redskins' Perry Riley: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (leg) is active for Sunday's contest at New England.

Riley has dealt with lower leg injuries all season, even sitting out in Weeks 3 and 4. When active, he's mustered 22 tackles (11 solo) in six contests, which leaves IDP owners wanting more.

Redskins' Perry Riley: Listed as probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (leg) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in New England.

Riley injured his leg in the previous game, but a bye week provided him with plenty of time to get healthy. The Redskins' other starting inside linebacker, Keenan Robinson, is listed as questionable due to a trio of injuries. If Robinson can't play, Will Compton will likely get the start next to Riley.

October 26, 2015 10:39 AM
Redskins' Perry Riley: Suffered lower leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley suffered a strained lower leg muscle during Sunday's win against the Bucs, the Washington Post reports.

Riley sat out two games earlier in the year with a calf injury. The severity of the injury is still unclear.
