  • Raiders' Eddie Vanderdoes: Remaining on PUP list

    Vanderdoes (knee) will remain on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list for the remainder of the 2018 season.

    Oakland's deadline to activate Vanderdoes to the 53-man roster came and passed Monday, relegating the second-year defensive tackle to the PUP list for the remainder of the season. It remains to be seen whether the decision to keep Vanderdoes on the PUP list came due to a setback in his recovery, or another undisclosed reason. Vanderdoes played all 16 games during his rookie year with the Raiders, and will set his sights on a return during the 2019 season.

  • Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Could be headed for meaningful role

    Ateman could take on a significant role in the Oakland offense while Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant recover from knee injuries, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The rookie seventh-round pick landed on Oakland's practice squad at the end of the preseason and was promoted to the 53-man roster after the Amari Cooper trade. He's already 24 years old and doesn't seem to offer much besides size (6-foot-4, 220 pounds), but the Raiders might as well take a look at some young players over the final two months of an ugly season. The team's only other healthy wide receivers are Seth Roberts, 32-year-old Brandon LaFell and 31-year-old return specialist Dwayne Harris. There's a real opportunity for Ateman to get some snaps Week 11 against Arizona.

  • Raiders' Eddie Vanderdoes: Won't play this season

    Vanderdoes (knee) will not suit up during the 2018 season, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Vanderdeos returned to practice last week, but the Raiders have ultimately elected keep the second-year defensive tackle the PUP list rather than activate him to the 53-man roster. The former third-round pick will set his sights to the 2019 season.

  • Raiders' Dwayne Harris: Could climb depth chart

    Harris caught his lone target for no gain in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Harris has not caught multiple passes in a contest since Week 3, but could be in line for additional targets with Martavis Bryant (knee) expecting an extended absence. Additionally testing the Raiders' depth at receiver, Jordy Nelson is tending to a knee injury as well and could miss Sunday's tilt against the Cardinals as a result. This would leave Brandon LaFell, Seth Roberts and rookie Marcell Ateman as the only healthy options at receiver next to Harris.

  • Raiders' Brandon LaFell: Could play major role against Arizona

    LaFell could be headed for an increased role Week 11 against the Cardinals while fellow receivers Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant tend to knee injuries, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    LaFell has caught at least three passes in as many contests since the Raiders' Week 7 bye, but could solidify himself as the No. 1 option at receiver if Nelson (knee) is forced to miss some time. Additionally, Bryant appears to be prepared for an extended absence as the Raiders may need to bring in another pass catcher from the free-agent pool. LaFell's underwhelming competition at wide receiver includes Seth Roberts, Marcell Ateman and Dwayne Harris moving forward.

  • Raiders' Maurice Hurst: Notches sack in loss

    Hurst logged four solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Hurst drew the start at defensive tackle and racked up his third sack of the season, serving as a rare bright spot for the 1-8 Raiders. He played 39 of a possible 56 defensive snaps and will look to stay busy again next week against the Cardinals.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Collects six points in loss

    Carlson made both of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Carlson was perfect from 46 and 30 yards to give the Raiders their only six points of the contest, as the team's struggling offense failed to reach the end zone. There could be a lack of scoring opportunities again in Week 11 against a Cardinals defense that just held the Chiefs to a season low 26 points.

  • Raiders' Martavis Bryant: Expected to miss games

    Bryant (knee) will miss some time with a PCL injury, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    An MRI on Monday confirmed initial fears of a significant PCL injury, ruling Bryant out for Week 11 at the least. It isn't actually a major blow to the Oakland offense, as the mercurial wideout hasn't seen more than three targets in a game since Week 4. With Jordy Nelson also suffering a knee injury Sunday, the Raiders may be left with Brandon LaFell, Seth Roberts and Marcell Ateman as their top options at wide receiver for Week 11 at Arizona.

  • Raiders' Jordy Nelson: Dealing with knee issue

    Nelson is being evaluated for a knee injury he sustained in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Meanwhile, Martavis Bryant is on track to miss some time with a PCL injury, so the Raiders' wideout depth is being taxed in the post-Amari Cooper era. Next up for targets if Nelson sits out (in addition to Bryant) are Brandon LaFell, Seth Roberts and Dwayne Harris.

  • Raiders' Seth Roberts: Totals 39 receiving yards in loss

    Roberts caught three passes on as many targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Roberts was on the field for less than 30 offensive snaps for the first time since Week 5, but still managed to salvage a 39-yard performance while the Raiders offense continued to struggle. Both Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant are now being evaluated for knee injuries, however, so Roberts could see additional targets next week against the Cardinals.

  • Raiders' Brandon LaFell: Tallies season high in receiving yards

    LaFell caught four of six passing attempts for 47 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    The performance marks LaFell's third consecutive game with at least three catches. He has vaulted to the top of the Raiders' depth chart at wide receiver since their bye and could be on the verge of even more opportunities with Martavis Bryant suffering a PCL injury in the contest and Jordy Nelson also exiting for a time due to a quad issue. Nevertheless, with the Raiders struggling to sustain drives and a tough Week 11 matchup at Arizona up next, it is doubtful the 32-year-old becomes a dependable option in fantasy.

  • Raiders' Jalen Richard: Totals 59 yards in loss

    Richard rushed three times for seven yards and added 52 more while hauling in five of his six targets in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Richard led the team in receptions for the second straight week, thanks once again to garbage time. The 25-year-old saw just one of his targets in the first half, but as long as the Raiders are playing from behind most weeks, he should continue to compile numbers via second-half dump-off passes, and he did here. The Southern Mississippi product has at least four catches and 45 yards in each of his last five games, all blowout losses.

  • Raiders' Jared Cook: Leads team in targets during defeat

    Cook caught four of nine targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Cook has seen his production drop off immensely after what was a torrid start to the season by his standards. He entered the week with three games of 20 yards or fewer in his last four and seemed headed towards a similar fate in this one when he saw just two targets and recorded no catches in the first half. After hauling in four of his seven second-half targets to salvage his day, perhaps the Raiders will look to the 31-year-old more frequently starting Week 11 at Arizona.

  • Raiders' Doug Martin: Totals 92 yards in loss

    Martin rushed 15 times for 61 yards and caught all three of his targets for 31 more yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Martin was perhaps the lone bright spot in an otherwise dull day for the Raiders. The yardage total was his best of the year and accompanied a season-high 15 carries. He out-touched Jalen Richard 18 to eight, but with Oakland struggling to find the end zone, touchdowns will be hard to come by for the 29-year-old. While he still has not scored this season, he does at least have an appealing Week 11 matchup at Arizona.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Can't find end zone in loss

    Carr completed 24 of 37 passing attempts for 243 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

    The Raiders were fortunate to manage even six points as Carr had a potential pick-six bounce off a defender's hands near the Chargers end zone before Oakland's fourth-quarter field-goal. Once again, the Raiders were out of sync on offense, and the 27-year-old managed just 78 yards passing in the first half. He has now failed to throw for a touchdown in three of his last four games, and things don't get any easier the next two weeks with road matchups against the stingy Arizona and Baltimore defenses on tap.

  • Raiders' Martavis Bryant: Injures left PCL, MRI set for Monday

    Bryant injured the PCL in his left knee during Sunday's loss to the Chargers and will have an MRI on Monday to determine the ailment's severity, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Bryant's knee issue is something coach Jon Gruden said the Raiders are "really concerned" about. While that casts a cloud over his situation, Monday's testing should produce a more definitive update on his outlook. Prior to exiting Sunday's game, Bryant caught all three of his targets for 17 yards.

  • Raiders' Martavis Bryant: Suffers knee injury

    Bryant was forced out of Sunday's game against the Chargers with a knee injury.

    Prior to his exit from the contest, Bryant caught all three of his targets for 17 yards. For now, we'll consider him day-to-day as Week 11's contest against the Cardinals approaches.
