Raiders' Casey Hayward: Joining Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (hamstring) agreed to a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday, NFL reporter Josina Anderson reports.

The terms of the deal remain unclear, but the 31-year-old will join the Raiders after being released by the Chargers in mid-March. Hayward had 42 passes defensed and 11 interceptions while becaming one of the better corners in the league during his first two years with the Bolts, but he failed to maintain that level of play over the past couple seasons. However. Hayward could still provide a significant boost to the secondary in Las Vegas.

Casey Hayward: Released Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (hamstring) was released by the Chargers on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The move clears about $9.75 million off the Chargers cap. Hayward blossomed into one of the league's best corners after joining the team in 2016, earning two Pro Bowl nods while recording 14 interceptions in his five-year stint with the club. That being said, Hayward missed a regular-season game for the first time since 2013, and his deteriorating play over the last two seasons could ultimately lower his market in an offseason embroiled in an unprecedented cap situation.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Ending season on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

The two-time Pro Bowl cornerback was forced to exit last Sunday's win over Denver because of a hamstring injury, and the issue is considered significant enough to hold him out for Los Angeles' 2020 season finale. Hayward has been incredibly durable over the course of his NFL career, missing just one game since 2013. A Week 17 absence will extend Hayward's mark to two in that category. The Chargers find themselves with lessened motivation to push him onto the field against Kansas City, having long been eliminated from playoff contention.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Exits with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward was forced out of Sunday's game against the Broncos with a hamstring injury.

The 31-year-old cornerback corraled his first interception of the season before exiting the game. Tevaughn Campbell should see a steep increase in defensive snaps with Hayward on the sidelines.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Good to face New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

The 31-year-old received the questionable tag after practicing as a limited participant Friday, and he'll be available for Sunday's contest. Hayward and Chris Harris should operate as the team's top corners, per usual.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Patriots.

Hayward was unable to practice all week before returning in limited fashion Friday. His return to practice is certainly cause for optimism, but he is still seemingly trending toward a game-time decision. If he is ultimately unable to give it a go, some combination of Tevaughn Campbell and Michael Davis would presumably again see increased roles in his absence.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Set to miss Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bills.

Hayward is beginning to see a dropoff in his performance in his age-31 season, but he's still a sturdy starting cornerback. The Chargers may struggle to replace him in a road game against the Bills. Chris Harris (foot) will be back from IR to start opposite Michael Davis, and Tevaughn Campbell should see a major workload as well. Hayward will aim to return in Week 13 against the Patriots.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Injures groin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward suffered a groin injury during Sunday's game against the Jets.

Hayward is officially listed as questionable to return Sunday, but he left the field with under five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. With Chris Harris (foot) still on IR and Brandon Facyson (illness) on the reserve COVID-19 list, Michael Davis and Tevaughn Campbell are currently the Chargers' only healthy cornerbacks.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Ready to face Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward is active heading into Sunday's matchup against Las Vegas, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Hayward had an injury scare with his calf during last Sunday's meltdown against the Broncos, though he was capable of returning to full participation in practice by midweek. Coach Anthony Lynn described Hayward's availability as a "fluid situation" Friday, but the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback is currently considered healthy enough to suit up for his eighth start of 2020. He'll be tasked with slowing down Las Vegas' Derek Carr, who has thrown to a sterling 14:2 TD:INT on the year.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Questionable for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders for non-injury reasons, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Coach Anthony Lynn said it was a "fluid situation," so Hayward's availability appears to be truly up in the air. Tevaughn Campbell could see a heavily increased role Sunday, especially with Brandon Facyson (illness) also questionable.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Fine after injury scare
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Hayward missed the final drive of Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Broncos after he had his calf rolled up on in the fourth quarter, but the veteran cornerback is already at full speed to start the practice week. He'll be good to go Sunday against the Raiders as he looks to add to the six pass breakups he's recorded through seven games.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Had calf rolled up on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward said Monday that he missed the final drive of last week's loss to Denver because his calf was rolled up on earlier in the fourth quarter, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Hayward's practice participation this week should reveal whether the calf injury is still bothering him. He'll hope to heal up in time to face the Raiders on Sunday.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (undisclosed) practiced without limitations Wednesday.

Hayward suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Week 5's loss to the Saints, but with the team having an extra week to prepare, Hayward won't have to miss anymore game action. Now healthy, expect the veteran to assume his usual starting role at cornerback for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Leaves with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward missed the fourth quarter of Monday's game against the Saints due to injury, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Chargers have yet to reveal any details about Hayward's injury, but it was significant enough to force him out for the fourth quarter and overtime. Tevaughn Campbell could see time at corner if the injury is significant.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward recorded a career-high 12 tackles to go with two passes defensed in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Coming into Sunday's game, Hayward's previous career-high mark in tackles (eight) came all the way back in his first season with the Chargers. A bevy of short throws and hand-offs by Joe Burrow in his first career start allowed for Hayward to play closer to the line of scrimmage than he typically does, and he capitalized on it with an influx of tackles. The unique scenario will surely look like an outlier, particularly next week against a dangerous Chiefs offense.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Career low in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward piled together 32 tackles, eight passes defended and two interceptions over the course of 16 games this season.

After a 2018 season in which Hayward failed to pick up a single interception, the veteran managed to accumulate two despite a down season overall from the Chargers. Just 32 tackles across 16 games is easily a career worst for Hayward, but it emphasizes how little he was targeted throughout the season compared to the likes of Michael Davis and Brandon Facyson, who both took turns as the No. 2 corner for portions of the year.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Interception on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward recorded two tackles, three passes defensed and an interception across 79 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Hayward snagged his second interception of the season after a 2018 campaign in which he did not record any. The veteran has played in 98 percent of the team's defensive snaps this year. He will now shift his focus to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' high-powered offense when Green Bay comes to town Sunday.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Active versus Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Hayward wasn't able to practice all week due to a back issue, but he'll ultimately take the field Week 4 versus Miami. The shutdown cornerback has played every snap on defense for the Chargers this season.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Questionable vs. Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Hayward was held out of practice this week due to a back injury. It remains unclear when he suffered it, as the cornerback has played every single snap for the Chargers so far this season. It looks like Hayward may end up being a game-time call this weekend.

September 26, 2019 02:20 PM
Chargers' Casey Hayward: Managing back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward did not practice Wednesday because of a back injury.

Hayward has played 100 percent of snaps on defense in each of the Chargers' three games this season. The severity of his back issue remains undisclosed. If the shutdown corner were to miss any time, Desmond King would likely slot into the starting lineup.
