Raiders' Arden Key: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders placed Key (foot) on injured reserve Thursday.

Key suffered a broken foot during Week 9's win over the Lions. He visited Dr. Robert Anderson to receive a second opinion on the injury, but it appears as though the second-year pro received no alternatives but to prematurely end his 2019 campaign. Key will turn his focus toward making a full recovery for the 2020 season. Quentin Poling has been promoted from the practice squad to occupy Key's former spot on the 53-man roster.

Raiders' Arden Key: Getting second opinion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key will get a second opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson on the foot injury suffered in Sunday's win over the Lions, Grant Gordon of reports.

Key, who broke his foot and is now facing a potential trip to the injured reserve, will receive a second opinion before accepting the fate of a shortened season. Key was not a starter along the Raiders' defensive line in 2019, but he recorded a sack in each of the last two contests and averaged just over 30 defensive snaps over his last four games. Benson Mayowa could see additional work at defensive end with fellow backup Josh Mauro (groin) also nursing an injury.

Raiders' Arden Key: Broken foot confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key suffered a fractured foot during Sunday's win over the Lions, Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune reports.

Key appears set to miss significant time, and he could be in danger of missing the rest of the season depending on his recovery timeline. Benson Mayowa stands to play an expanded role on defense as long as Key is unable to go.

Raiders' Arden Key: May have broken foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key is feared to have suffered a fractured foot during Sunday's win over the Lions and will likely undergo X-rays, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Key recorded his second sack of the season in the victory over Detroit, but it now looks as though he could be in for an extended absence. At the very least, the 23-year-old is unlikely to play Thursday against the Chargers.

Raiders' Arden Key: Ready to rock Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Texans.

Key missed last week's game against the Packers, but there's no doubt about his status against Sunday's AFC foe. The second-year pro only has one tackle over five games despite a consistent snap count.

Raiders' Arden Key: Out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key (kneecap) will remain sidelined for the Raiders' Week 7 matchup with Packers, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Key remains week-to-week after straining his patellar tendon in the Raiders' victory over the Bears in London on Oct. 8. Maxx Crosby and Josh Mauro figure to continue seeing some extra work in his absence.

Raiders' Arden Key: Going to miss some time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key suffered a strained patellar tendon in Sunday's victory over Chicago and is expected to miss "a couple weeks," Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Over the first five games this season, Key recorded just one tackle. The 23-year-old underwent shoulder surgery in the offseason but had fully recovered well before the start of training camp. In Key's absence, Maxx Crosby and Josh Mauro are candidates to see extra work.

Raiders' Arden Key: Underwent offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key said he underwent minor offseason shoulder surgery but is now healthy, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Key hurt his shoulder in training camp last summer and played through some sort of injury during most of his rookie campaign. The 2018 third-round pick appears to be back to full strength, though, and Bair relays the defensive end reported to minicamp at 260 pounds after finishing last year at 245. There's optimism for Key in his second year after a seemingly unlucky first season in which he produced just one sack despite also having 10 quarterback hits and 30 quarterback hurries, according to Pro Football Focus. No other player with double-digit hits had less than four sacks.

Raiders' Arden Key: Facing rising expectations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden said Tuesday he's demanding improvements of Key for 2019, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Key played all 16 games for the Raiders last season after being selected in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and he posted 30 tackles and one sack over that stretch. With Oakland lacking serious competition at defensive end, Key has a straight path to a starting role in 2019 and could realistically receive an uptick in snaps.

Raiders' Arden Key: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Key will suit up against the Chiefs on Sunday despite him having been limited in practice all week due to a knee injury. The rookie third-round pick is expected to slot into his usual starting role.

Raiders' Arden Key: Questionable for Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Key was a limited participant in practice all week due to a knee injury and appears to be truly questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Chiefs. If the rookie third-round pick were to miss any time, Shilique Calhoun would benefit from an increased defensive role.

Raiders' Arden Key: Logs first career sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key racked up four tackles (all solo) and his first career sack in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Seahawks.

Key recorded the Raiders' lone sack while starting in place of the injured Frostee Rucker (neck), who figures to return in Week 8 against the Colts following the team's bye. Key has now played at least 47 defensive snaps in three consecutive games.

Raiders' Arden Key: Returns Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Matt Schneidman of the Mercury News reports.

Key was held out of the Raiders' preseason opener with an ankle injury, but the third-round pick has returned to practice in no time. The rookie out of LSU figures to rotate with Shilique Calhoun, Tank Carradine, Fadol Brown and Frostee Rucker at defensive end behind starter Bruce Irvin throughout the preseason.

Raiders' Arden Key: Out for preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Key will be sidelined for Friday's preseason opener against the Lions due to a tweaked ankle, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

Key presumably sustained the injury at a recent practice, but this is the first we are hearing of the issue. The Raiders are likely exercising caution with their third-round pick, as he projects as a rotational defensive end this season. Look for Shilique Calhoun, Fadol Brown, and Frostee Rucker to see some extended time in his absence.
