Raiders' Antonio Brown: Files new grievance
Brown (foot) is filing a new grievance against the NFL regarding his preferred helmet, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
An arbitrator ruled against Brown's initial grievance over his desire to continue wearing his old helmet, a Schutt AiR Advantage. The star wideout's new grievance is an attempt to receive a single-season grace period to continue wearing his preferred headgear, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Brown reported to Raiders practice Monday to finish out training camp and appears to have recovered well enough from his foot injury to practice, but a resolution to his conflict with the NFL doesn't appear to be immediately drawing to a close....

Raiders' Antonio Brown: Rejoins team for meeting
Brown (foot) joined the Raiders on Monday for a team meeting to finish out training camp, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Seemingly now healthy enough to practice, Brown nonetheless skipped Sunday's session to focus on dealing with his helmet grievance, apparently upset that the NFL didn't approve the Schutt Air Advantage he recently acquired. He reportedly has two other versions that were manufactured in different years, but it's considered a long shot for the NFL to approve any model of Brown's preferred helmet. Raiders GM Mike Mayock expressed frustration Sunday, noting that the team has "exhausted all avenues of relief" and now needs to know if Brown is "all-in or all-out." A return to the team Monday marks a step in the right direction, but it still isn't clear where Browns' focus lies.... See More ... See Less
Raiders' Antonio Brown: Having more helmets tested
Brown (foot) is having two additional Schutt Air Advantage helmets, manufactured in two different years, tested to see if they meet the NFL's standards, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Despite making progress with his "frostbitten" feet, Brown skipped practice Sunday after the first of his new helmets failed an NFL test. Raiders general manager Mike Mayock responded with frustration, noting that the team has "exhausted all avenues of relief" and now needs to know if Brown is "all-in or all-out", though the player himself apparently doesn't agree that he's out of options. The 31-year-old wideout denies rumors that he threatened to retire if he couldn't wear his desired helmet, but it's clear the matter has taken his focus away from the Raiders. Tom Pelissero of NFL.com suggests it's a long shot for Brown to get approval from the NFL for any version of the Schutt Air Advantage helmet he's so fond of.... See More ... See Less
Raiders' Antonio Brown: Helmet doesn't meet league approval
Brown's desire to use "a preferred Schutt Air Advantage helmet hit a snag on Saturday," Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Per the report, the helmet Brown was seeking to play in failed an NFL test. As a result, the wideout -- who has missed time due to a foot issue that appears nearly resolved -- elected not to attend practice Sunday, which prompted GM Mike Mayock to make a statement before media gathered at the Raiders' training camp facility. Essentially, Mayock expressed his frustration that the wideout's equipment situation has not yet been resolved. "Antonio Brown is not here today, and here's the bottom line: he's upset about the helmet issue," Mayock noted. "We have supported that. We appreciate that. We have, at this point, exhausted all avenues of relief. From our perspective, it's time for him to be all-in or all-out. We're hoping he is back soon...We are really excited about where this franchise is going, and we hope AB is going to be a big part of it starting Week 1 against Denver." Mayock didn't take questions after making his statement, so the bottom line is that a drama which seemed to be nearing a close remains ongoing, leaving Brown's status with the Raiders as an issue that will need to be monitored....

Raiders' Antonio Brown: Helmet still an issue
Brown (foot) was not present for Sunday's practice because he's still upset about his helmet issue, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Brown -- who also has been dealing with a foot injury -- was thought to be nearing a return to practice, but it appears he's still not happy with the way his helmet issue has played out. The report adds that GM Mike Mayock wants the wideout back in the fold, but Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area also relays that Mayock said he needs to know if Brown is "all-in or all-out."...

Raiders' Tyrell Williams: Sits out practice
Williams (undisclosed) didn't practice Sunday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
It remains to be seen if Williams is dealing with an injury or illness, or is simply getting a maintenance day. Assuming his absence is not a lengthy one, Williams heads into the coming season in line to start opposite fellow newcomer Antonio Brown, who has been dealing with a foot issue.... See More ...

Raiders' Josh Mauro: Dealing with injury
Mauro is dealing with a hamstring injury that forced him to miss Thursday's preseason game against the Cardinals, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
It's unclear how Mauro picked up the injury, and the severity remains undisclosed. This is tough news for the Stanford product, considering he was just listed as the starting defensive end opposite Clelin Ferrell on the Raiders' depth chart last week. With Mauro sidelined, the door should open for Benson Mayowa and James Cowser to see more reps.... See More ... See Less
Raiders' Denzelle Good: Activated from PUP list
Good (back) passed his physical and was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Raiders' Antonio Brown: Participates in morning walkthrough
Brown (foot) was a full participant in Saturday's morning walkthrough, Vic Tafur of the Athletic reports.
Brown made his return to practice Saturday and impressed quarterback Derek Carr with his preparedness, as the latter relayed, "He has great recall. He had no mental errors. You can tell he's been studying." Brown's blistered feet may keep him limited during full-contact sessions in the short term, but he's expected to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season when Oakland hosts the Broncos on Monday Night Football....

Raiders' Denver Kirkland: Back in action
Kirkland (undisclosed) played a team-high 62 offensive snaps during Thursday's preseason win over the Cardinals.
Kirkland had been carted off the practice field earlier this month with severe muscle cramps, but the issue no longer appears to be affecting the backup right guard. He'll now be able to compete for the starting job with Gabe Jackson nursing a knee injury that could keep him sidelined for up to two months.... See More ... See Less
Raiders' D.J. Killings: Dealing with torn pectoral msucle
Killings sustained a torn pectoral muscle during the Raiders' first preseason tilt and will undergo surgery, which ultimately landed the cornerback on IR earlier this week as Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Killings' regular season debut in the NFL will have to wait until at least 2020, as a torn pectoral muscle will keep the 24-year-old sidelined while he recovers on IR. Killings didn't have a clear path to playing time with the Raiders given Gareon Conley, Daryl Worley and Nick Nelson remain at full strength.... See More ... See Less

Raiders' Maurice Hurst: Ineffective Thursday
Hurst (ankle) played 30 defensive snaps during Thursday's 33-26 preseason win over the Cardinals.
Hurst did not record a single tackle, but it's encouraging to see him on the field after an ankle injury limited him to 13 games as a rookie. Now fully recovered, the 24-year-old is competing for a rotational role along the Raiders' defensive line.... See More ... See Less
