Raiders' Bruce Irvin: Freed to rush passer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin sent out a tweet Saturday suggesting that he won't be asked to drop into coverage under new Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther.

Irvin has spent much of his career in a hybrid end/linebacker role that allows him to rush the quarterback on most passing downs but also calls for some snaps in coverage. It helps explain why he's landed between 5.5 and 8.0 sacks in five of his six NFL seasons, as he typically doesn't get as many opportunities as other top pass rushers. Irvin is pleased with the new defensive scheme, perhaps eyeing the first double-digit sack season of his career. He did find ways to make up for the modest sack totals his first two seasons in Oakland, piling up 115 tackles and 10 forced fumbles in 32 games.

Raiders' Bruce Irvin: Logs eight sacks in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin finished his 2017 campaign with 58 tackles, eight sacks, three passes defensed and four forced fumbles in 16 games.

Irvin, who turned 30 years old in November, has notched an impressive 10 total forced fumbles in two seasons with the Raiders. His eight sacks in 2017 were the most in a season for Irvin since his rookie campaign with Seattle in 2012. The outside linebacker has two years remaining on his contract with the Raiders, and the team plans to have one of its leading edge rushers back in 2018.

Raiders' Bruce Irvin: Three tackles in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin logged three tackles (two solo) -- including two for a loss -- and broke up a pass in Monday's 19-10 loss to the Eagles.

Irvin has failed to reach the quarterback in back-to-back contests following a three-game stretch in which he racked up five sacks. He'll look to get back on track in Week 17 against a Chargers offense that has scored less than 15 points in consecutive games.

Raiders' Bruce Irvin: Active Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin (concussion) is active for Monday's game at Philadelphia.

Irvin wrapped up Week 16 prep with back-to-back limited practices but was still granted a questionable designation. With his status known, he'll look to uphold his recent hot streak, which includes five sacks over the last four games.

Raiders' Bruce Irvin: Questionable for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin (concussion) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Eagles.

Irvin practiced on a limited basis Friday and Saturday and there was no official announcement that he had cleared the concussion protocol. The 30-year-old is likely to be a game-day decision this week, with James Cowser and Shilique Calhoun slated for increased snaps if Irvin is ultimately unable to play.
