Rod Streater (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Streater returned to a limited practice Friday and is likely going to be a game-time decision. Andre Holmes and Denarius Moore would see an increase in targets if Streater doesn't play this week.
Sep 19 - 6:32 PM

Maurice Jones-Drew (hand surgery) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Jones-Drew is on track to play after returning to practice Thursday. His status will be available early on Sunday with the Raiders taking on New England for a 1PM ET game. If Jones-Drew is active, he'll be part of a committee with Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray.
Sep 19 - 4:41 PM

Rod Streater (hip) remained out of Raiders practice Thursday.

The Raiders haven't updated Streater's status, so all we have to go on is his practice reports. They suggest he won't suit up against Darrelle Revis and company on Sunday. Owners need to be making other WR4/5 plans.
Sep 18 - 3:06 PM

Maurice Jones-Drew (hand surgery) returned to Raiders practice Thursday.

He was officially limited. MJD sat out Wednesday's session, but is now on track to return against the Patriots. If MJD does suit up, it will likely be as part of a three-man committee with Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray. He's not on the RB3 radar.
Sep 18 - 3:00 PM

Rod Streater (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

Streater suffered a hip flexor in the Week 2 loss and underwent an MRI on Monday. The Raiders like to keep injury news close to the vest, so we're not expecting to hear much on Streater before the weekend. Consider him questionable.

Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) did not practice Wednesday.

Speaking on Monday, MJD didn't sound optimistic about his chances of playing against the Patriots. If he can't go, Darren McFadden would get the start, with Marcel Reece and Latavius Murray spelling him in the backfield.
Sep 17 - 2:58 PM

Raiders signed WR Vincent Brown to a one-year contract.

It's a sign the Raiders expect de facto No. 1 receiver Rod Streater (hip flexor) to miss time. A 2011 third-round pick of the Chargers, Brown appeared to have a bright future ahead of him before breaking his ankle in 2012. He wasn't the same in 2013, and couldn't survive final cuts this summer. Brown moved like a tight end last season, which is a problem since he's 5-foot-11, 190 pounds. He's an inoffensive flier for a team as talent-deficient as the Raiders, but he's not going to make an impact on the football field.

Rod Streater underwent an MRI on his hip flexor injury on Monday.

The Raiders are giving no details on the results. They like to pretend to be the Patriots when it comes to injury information, but are really a minor league-caliber team. Ironically, Oakland travels to New England this week.
Sep 15 - 5:24 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen passed along word on NFL Insiders Monday that there is already talk amongst NFL people that Raiders coach Dennis Allen's job could be in danger.

"I know a lot of people around the league are talking about it," said Mort. Allen is the least of the Raiders' problems, in our opinion, but every loser loves a scapegoat. Once again, the Raiders cobbled together the worst roster in the league, and once again they are atrociously bad. A full-house cleaning is desperately needed in Oakland. It was needed before the 2014 offseason began.
Sep 15 - 4:03 PM

Maurice Jones-Drew (hand surgery) "didn't sound optimistic" about playing in Week 3 when speaking to reporters on Monday.

The Raiders face the Patriots next. Jones-Drew has refused to provide details on his hand injury, and the Raiders laughably listed him as "questionable" on last Friday's injury report despite the fact that he never had any chance to play. If MJD can't go at New England, Darren McFadden would presumably continue to operate as Oakland's lead back. Latavius Murray got one touch in Week 2.
Sep 15 - 1:48 PM

Free agent WR Vincent Brown is working out for the Raiders Monday.

Rod Streater left Sunday's loss with a hip flexor injury. Brown, who was waived by the Chargers prior to Week 1, proved he isn't a serviceable NFL wideout last year while filling in for Malcom Floyd.

Rod Streater suffered a hip flexor injury in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Texans.

Streater's departure allowed Andre Holmes (5-45-0 on seven targets) and Denarius Moore (3-29-0 on five targets) to get some extra run. The severity of Streater's injury is unknown right now.

Latavius Murray rushed once for six yards in the Raiders' Week 2 loss to the Texans.

It was an enormously disappointing outing for second-year back Murray, who saw just the one touch and played sparingly on offense while used-up Darren McFadden operated as the Raiders' every-down back. Murray remains an intriguing RB5 stash in deeper leagues, but he needs opportunity. There's no telling whether he's going to get it from the stubborn Raiders coaching staff.
Sep 14 - 8:36 PM

Denarius Moore secured 3-of-5 targets for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 2 loss to the Texans.

He now has 37 yards on 13 targets through two games. That's the kind of inefficiency coaches despise, and why Moore's role is now likelier to dwindle than grow with James Jones and Andre Holmes simply outplaying him. We'll be crossing our fingers that the Raiders trade Moore to a real team before October's trade deadline. A team that could get him the ball on vertical routes.
Sep 14 - 8:33 PM

Andre Holmes turned seven targets into five receptions for 45 yards in the Raiders' Week 2 loss to the Texans.

Holmes did most of his damage in fourth-quarter garbage time, but it was good to at least see him involved after Holmes played only two snaps in the Raiders' opener. Oakland's ideal two-wide set would involve Holmes at "X" and James Jones at "Z," but at this point they're still mixing and matching. Jones is the only Raiders wideout worth owning in 12- and 14-team leagues.
