Hood (knee) is signing a one-year deal to stay with the Panthers, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Hood was a long shot to make the 53-man roster this past summer, but the Panthers kept him on injured reserve after he suffered a torn ACL in the preseason finale. The timing of Hood's injury should allow him to be ready for the start of training camp, where he'll once again face a difficult path to make the team. The 230-pound bruiser was selected by Oakland in the seventh round of the 2017 draft and spent most of his rookie season on the Raiders' practice squad.
Hood (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Joe Person of The Athletic Carolina reports.
Hood's placement on injured reserve will keep him out until at least Week 8 of the regular season. There's a chance Hood could be recalled to the active roster after Week 8, but the odds of that happening seem slim to none at the moment.
Hood was claimed off waivers Tuesday by the Panthers, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Hood was originally selected by the Raiders in the 7th round of last year's draft, but he spent majority of his rookie season on the team's practice squad and was waived by Oakland on Monday. The Panthers are pretty secure with their depth at running back, especially considering they signed veteran tailback C.J. Anderson on Monday, so he could be in line for another year on a practice squad.
Hood was waived by the Raiders on Monday.
A seventh-round pick of the Raiders in 2017, Hood ended up seeing action in just one game as a rookie, as he spent the bulk of the season on the practice squad. Hood was always considered a long shot to make Oakland's roster ahead of the upcoming season, and the fact that he's being cut so early in the offseason doesn't bode well for his chances of making a roster elsewhere.
Hood signed a reserve/future deal with the Raiders on Tuesday.
The Raiders took Hood in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, but ultimately waived him prior to the season commencing. He reverted the team's practice squad before being promoted to the active roster in Week 8. He was subsequently waived and spent the remainder of the year back with the practice unit. He will now look to earn a spot on the 53-man roster for the 2018 season.
The Raiders signed Hood to their practice squad Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Oakland had previously promoted Hood to the active roster during Marshawn Lynch's (suspension) absence for the Week 8 win over the Chiefs, waiving the rookie shortly after the contest. Now back with the organization, Hood will likely remain on the practice squad unless one of Lynch or fellow running backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington are forced to miss action down the road.
Hood was waived by the Raiders on Monday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Hood became expendable once Marshawn Lynch was activated from the suspended list. If Hood clears waivers, he'll have the opportunity to sign anywhere he chooses should he draw interest.
Hood signed a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday.
Selected by the Raiders in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Hood was released at the end of the preseason and spent the past seven weeks on Oakland's practice squad. He'll provide depth behind DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard while Marshawn Lynch serves a one-game suspension Sunday against the Bills. Hood likely will be waived after the contest, unless Washington or Richard suffer an injury.
Hood was waived by the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Hood found himself trapped behind the likes of Marshawn Lynch, DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard on cut day. A 2017 seventh-rounder, Hood might have trouble finding a new home given his inexperience at the professional level.
