The foot injury limited McGill's participation during Wednesday's practice, but he was upgraded to a full participant Thursday and Friday and looks like he'll be an option for the Raiders in Week 5. McGill has appeared in one game this season -- the team's Week 3 loss to the Redskins -- logging all 27 of his snaps on special teams.
McGill (foot) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
McGill made his season debut against the Redskins in Week 3, but he only made one tackle on 27 special teams snaps. Without him, though, the Raiders are seriously skimp at the safety position, and rookie seventh-round pick Shalom Luani is the last remaining backup at the position.
McGill (foot) is questionable to play Sunday against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
It seems McGill may have aggravated a foot injury in his season debut last Sunday, considering he was a limited participant in practice this entire week. If he's ultimately ruled out, Shalom Luani would likely serve as the backup to Reggie Nelson.
Though the Raiders listed McGill as questionable heading into the weekend, his full participation in practice Thursday and Friday offered hope he might be able to suit up Sunday. Evidently, the safety didn't make as much progress as the Raiders had hoped, so his 2017 debut will have to wait a little longer.
McGill (foot) was a full participant at Friday's practice, but is still listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Jets.
After a limited role Wednesday's, McGill has practiced fully the last two days. Thus, he is likely more on the optimistic side of questionable heading into Week 2. Shalom Luani figures to be in line for more rotational reps in the defensive backfield should McGill ultimately be forced to sit out.
