Raiders' Ben Heeney: Stamped with NFI label
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heeney (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, Jimmy Durkin of the Mercury News reports.

Heeney spent 12 games on injured reserve last season due to a torn ligament in his ankle. In the four games he did play, he recorded 15 tackles. When he is healthy again, he should be the favorite to win the middle linebacker job in Oakland with only Cory James and 2017 fifth-round pick Marquel Lee to compete with. Keep an eye out for the talented linebacker's recovery as he heads into his third season.

Raiders' Ben Heeney: Expects to be healthy for offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heeney, who was placed on injured reserve in October due to a torn ligament in his right ankle, expects to be healthy for the Raiders' offseason program, Jimmy Durkin of The Mercury News reports.

Heeney is coming up on 13 weeks since having surgery and is about three weeks from being able to do contact work. He recorded 15 tackles in only four games for the Raiders in 2016, so his return to action should give a boost to Oakland's front seven.

Raiders' Ben Heeney: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Heeney was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury Tuesday.

Heeney will end his second season in an untimely manner, after recording 15 tackles in just four games. The 23-year-old started the season as the team's starting middle linebacker, but was replaced by Cory James in Week 3. The Raiders signed Perry Riley on Tuesday to replace Heeney.

Raiders' Ben Heeney: Makes five tackles Sunday against Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heeney notched five tackles (three solo) during Sunday's victory against the Saints.

Heeney's numbers figure to improve after the starting middle linebacker didn't have too many opportunities at making tackles Sunday, with the Saints running the ball just 22 times while quarterback Drew Brees recorded 42 pass attempts. It's not every week the Raiders will be able to give up more than 30 points and still win, so Heeney and his defense will look to improve next week against the Falcons.

Raiders' Ben Heeney: Starting at middle linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Heeney, a fifth-rounder in last year's NFL Draft, heads into the 2016 season as the starting middle linebacker for the Raiders, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group reports.

At 6-foot, 231 pounds, there are questions regarding Heeney's ability to excel at the position due to being undersized, particularly against the run. The Raiders take on the Titans in their third preseason game Saturday, so Heeney figures to get plenty of reps against their run-first offense. In his rookie year, the 23-year-old racked up 38 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 15 games; those numbers figure to rise with his increased role this season.
