The Raiders traded Jackson to the Seahawks on Wednesday in exchange for a 2021 fifth-round pick, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The Raiders were expected to release the 29-year-old at the start of the new league year, but a trade partner emerged late. Jackson started all 16 games for Las Vegas last season, and Seattle will likely plug him into a starting role at guard in 2021.
The Raiders informed Jackson of his release on Wednesday, NFL reporter Josina Anderson reports.
Jackson had been a starter for the Raiders for the last seven years, but he'll now explore his options elsewhere after Las Vegas elected to cut him. The transaction frees up $9.6 million in cap space without any dead money for Las Vegas. Jackson, who will turn 30 in July, is a solid pass blocker who should draw a fair number of suitors as a free agent.
Jackson (illness) is active heading into Sunday's matchup against Denver.
Jackson came down with an illness Friday and was deemed questionable heading into Sunday, but he's feeling well enough to suit up for his ninth outing of the year. The Mississippi State product has fielded 100 percent of the offensive snaps in every game but one this season, as he now prepares for a Broncos defense that ranks seventh in team sacks.
The Raiders have listed Jackson (illness) as questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
Jackson was a full participant at Wednesday and Thursday's practices before missing Friday's session due to being under the weather. His status Sunday will depend on how he is feeling closer to kickoff. John Simpson would be the most likely candidate to replace him at right guard if he is unable to suit up.
Jackson has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and will play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Jackson tested negative again Saturday, clearing him for Sunday's game after the guard was placed on the COVID-19 list because he came into contact with Trent Brown, who tested positive. Jackson will start at right guard Sunday.
Jackson will be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers if he continues to test negative, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
Jackson came into contact with Trent Brown, who tested positive, but with another negative test Saturday, Jackson will be available for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers. Backup right guard Denzelle Good is also on the COVID-19 list, so Patrick Omameh likely would start at left guard if both can't play.
The Raiders placed Jackson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, per the NFL's official transaction page.
Jackson was placed on the list because he either tested positive for the virus, or came into close contact with someone who did. Jackson became the fifth offensive linemen for the Raiders to be placed on the COVID-19 on Thursday, leaving the team extremely thin up front. If he's unable to play in Week 7, Patrick Omameh would be in line for the start at right guard.
Jackson (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Texans.
Jackson played through this injury in Week 7 against the Packers, and now he won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's matchup. The 28-year-old is in line to start at right guard.
Jackson (knee) is active for Sunday's game at Green Bay.
Jackson is set to make his season debut after missing the first six weeks of the season with the MCL injury. The 28-year-old should enter the starting lineup at right guard for the Raiders.
Jackson (knee) has officially been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Jackson has been practicing on a limited basis and appears to be a trending toward a true game-time decision. The 28-year-old is looking to make his season debut after injuring his knee in training camp.
Jackson (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Coach Jon Gruden indicated prior to the Raiders' bye week that Jackson would have a chance to return Week 7, and his return to practice Wednesday echoes that sentiment. The 28-year-old may still not be ready to go Sunday, but he appears to be closing in on his return.
Jackson (knee) could return in Week 7 following the Raiders' bye this week, Myles Simmons of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Coach Jon Gruden indicated Jackson is progressing nicely in his recovery and should return Week 8 against the Texans at the latest. The 28-year-old has been sidelined by the left knee injury since early August, and Denzelle Good has been starting at right guard in his absence.
Jackson (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bears in London.
Jackson hasn't practiced since the start of the regular season due to the left knee injury and will miss his fifth straight contest. The 28-year-old doesn't have a realistic chance of returning until he at least logs a limited practice session. Denzelle Good figures to receive another start at right guard in his place.
Jackson (knee) will remain sidelined for Sunday's clash against the Colts.
Jackson injured his knee at practice on Aug. 8 and has been sidelined since. Although he avoided injured reserve, the 28-year-old does not yet seem to be nearing a return. There will be reason for more optimism once he returns to practice. In the meantime, Denzelle Good will presumably continue starting at right guard.
Coach Jon Gruden said Monday that he doesn't anticipate Jackson (knee) practicing during the upcoming week, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Jackson has been on the shelf since Aug. 8 when he suffered the knee injury during a joint practice with the Rams. At the time, he was originally thought to miss two months, so according to that timeline, a return was likely to be coming soon. Gruden also said he could practice in the week leading up to the Bears game, which is Week 6 in London. In the meantime, as long as Jackson remains sidelined, Denzelle Good will likely remain the team's starting right guard.
Coach Jon Gruden said that Jackson (knee) could return to the field "after the first few ballgames," Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
If Jackson, who suffered a left knee injury last month, was placed on injured reserve, he'd have to remain sidelined for eight weeks at a minimum. Given that the Raiders would prefer to have him back sooner than that, it looks like they'll carry him on the active roster until he is healthy.
Jackson is expected to miss the next eight weeks after suffering a left knee injury during Thursday's joint practice with the Rams, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
This is a tough blow for the Raiders, as Jackson was expected to open the 2019 campaign as the team's starting right guard. Denver Kirkland should get a chance to take over with Jackson out for the next two months.
Jackson appeared to suffer an injury during Thursday's practice and left the field on a cart, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
While coach Jon Gruden did say the team was "concerned," the details of Jackson's apparent injury remain undisclosed. The 28-year-old is expected to start at right guard for the Raiders in 2019, so the severity of his undisclosed issue will warrant close monitoring. With Jonathan Cooper (biceps), Denver Kirkland (undisclosed) and Denzelle Good (back) all battling injuries, and Richie Incognito facing a two-game suspension, Oakland could struggle to provide depth at the guard position if Jackson misses any time.
Jackson suffered a fractured elbow Week 14 against the Steelers, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Jackson was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week but the specifics of his elbow injury were previously undisclosed. The 27-year-old also sustained a partially torn pectoral Week 1 against the Rams but didn't miss a snap until Week 15. Jackson will avoid surgery for either injury and should be back to full strength in 6-to-8 weeks, putting him in line to rejoin Oakland for OTAs.
Coach Jon Gruden said Thursday that Jackson (elbow) is facing a 6-to-8-week recovery timetable, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Jackson is managing an undisclosed elbow injury sustained Dec. 9 against the Steelers, and he appears on track to recover in time to take part in offseason workouts. Chaz Green should step into the starting lineup for the Raiders' final two games of the season.
