Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Cowboys.

He missed his second straight practice on Friday. Apparently Amerson suffered a setback to his sprained foot earlier this week. He's expected to miss his seventh straight game and at this point, it's fair to wonder if we've seen the last of him in 2017. Dexter McDonald and Sean Smith will start at cornerback against Dallas.
Dec 15 - 3:41 PM

Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) is questionable for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Amerson took longer than expected to recover from a foot injury but is expected to return this week following a five-game absence. He'll provide an immediate boost to what has been one of the league's worst secondaries.
Dec 8 - 4:29 PM

Raiders declared CB David Amerson (foot) inactive for Week 13 against the Giants.

Amerson was able to get in three limited practices this week, but he still is not ready to return. Luckily, the Raiders' shaky secondary is unlikely to be exploited with Geno Smith starting for the Giants.
Dec 3 - 3:00 PM

Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) is questionable for Week 13 against the Giants.

Amerson has missed the last four games. He's on track to play Sunday after practicing all week. Amerson's return is a needed upgrade to an Oakland secondary that ranks near the bottom of the league.
Dec 1 - 5:01 PM

Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

This puts Amerson on track to return Sunday against the Giants. It will be his first game action since Week 7. Amerson's presence should improve what has been one of the league's worst secondaries.
Nov 29 - 7:03 PM

Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) will resume practicing on Wednesday.

It puts Amerson on track to return after missing the Raiders' past four games. The bye week was also mixed in. Amerson was struggling mightily before going down.
Nov 28 - 4:38 PM

Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) is inactive for Week 12.

Amerson will miss his fourth straight game and isn't a lock to return next week. Also inactive are QB Connor Cook, LB Shilique Calhoun, DT Darius Latham, OT David Sharpe, DL Jihad Ward and OT Jylan Ware.
Nov 26 - 3:09 PM

David Amerson (foot) has been ruled out for Week 12.

He'll miss his fourth straight game. Oakland's depleted secondary will be ripe for the picking on Sunday, though they'll be facing a Broncos offense that is equally broken.
Nov 24 - 3:15 PM

Raiders declared CB David Amerson (foot), RT Marshall Newhouse (hip, quad), LB Shilique Calhoun, QB Connor Cook, DT Darius Latham, DE Jihad Ward, and OT Jylan Ware inactive for Week 11 against the Patriots.

Oakland was always going to have trouble shutting down Tom Brady and company, and Amerson is yet another blow. Brady, Rob Gronkowski, and Brandin Cooks should all be in for big days. Vadal Alexander will start in the place of Newhouse.
Nov 19 - 3:00 PM

David Amerson (foot) is doubtful for Week 11 against the Patriots.

Amerson returned to a limited practice on Thursday but it looks like he'll need at least another week. Dexter McDonald will draw another start at corner opposite Sean Smith. It's a mouthwatering matchup for Tom Brady.
Nov 17 - 3:40 PM

David Amerson (foot) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Amerson had the bye week to rest his injured foot but still needs more time. With Amerson hurt and Gareon Conley (I.R., shin) done for the year, Oakland's secondary is looking thin for Sunday's matchup against the high-powered Patriots. That game will be played in Mexico City.
Nov 15 - 6:56 PM

David Amerson (foot, shoulder) is out for Week 9 against the Dolphins.

Amerson started the week as a limited practice participant but was downgraded to DNP on Thursday and was ruled out after sitting again on Friday. Gareon Conley (shin) and Demetrius McCray (knee) are also out for Week 9 while Gabe Jackson (ankle) is listed as questionable. Amerson's absence is an upgrade for the Dolphins' passing attack.
Nov 3 - 1:08 PM

David Amerson (foot, shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

The Raiders are practicing in Sarasota ahead of Sunday's game with Miami. Getting Amerson back would be a big boost to an Oakland secondary that's been running on fumes in recent weeks.
Nov 1 - 7:02 PM

Raiders declared CB David Amerson, FS Karl Joseph, OT David Sharpe, OT Jylan Ware, QB Connor Cook, CB Gareon Conley, and LB Marquel Lee inactive for Week 8 against the Bills.

In LCB Amerson (foot, shoulder) and FS Joseph (groin), Oakland will be missing two starters in the secondary against Tyrod Taylor. Daily Slant: On top of that, the Bills are home, where Taylor has averaged 24 fantasy points per game over the past two seasons. That represents a 7.5-point improvement and he more than doubles his touchdown production (1.55/g at home to 0.7/g away). Taylor also scoots for an extra 19 rushing yards per game (47.4 to 28.4). He currently projects in our top six QBs in terms of points-per-dollar on both FanDuel and DraftKings with projected ownership of 5% and 7.5%, respectively. That makes him an appealing GPP option and he can be stacked with LeSean McCoy against a Raiders defense allowing the seventh-most receiving yards to RBs (52.3/g).
