Raiders WR Davante Adams snagged 7 of 12 targets for 57 yards in a Week 7 loss to Chicago. Adams dropped one well-thrown end zone ball, but watching Brian Hoyer in this one was painful. Before getting pulled late in the game, the veteran managed just 129 yards and 2 INTs. Jimmy Garoppolo (back) has a chance to return for a Week 8 date with Detroit. Regardless, Adams will remain a volume-driven WR1.

There's a "real chance" Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo is back for Week 8, according to NFL Network. Garoppolo will miss Sunday's game vs. the Bears with "overall back soreness" but isnt dealing with a long-term injury. QB Brian Hoyer will start against Chicago, NFL Network confirms.

As expected, Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (back) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bears. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. The Athletic's Dianna Russini reports that QB Brian Hoyer will get the start in Garoppolo's place. Hoyer went 6 of 10 for 102 yards in relief last week but should still be considered a downgrade for Las Vegas' pass-catchers. The 38-year-old threw just 108 regular-season passes across the previous five seasons.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (back) will not play vs. the Bears on Sunday. There's been no timetable given for Garoppolo's return. It's also unclear who will get the start at QB for Vegas this weekend. Rookie QB Aidan O'Connell got the nod when Garoppolo missed Week 4, struggling to 238 yards passing on 6.1 yards per attempt. Veteran QB Brian Hoyer replaced Garoppolo this past week, going 6-of-10 for 102 yards, 0 TDs, and 0 INTs. Neither guy should be in your Week 7 fantasy plans.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (back) did not practice on Wednesday. While he reportedly dodged a major injury in last week's game vs. the Patriots, Garoppolo doesn't seem particularly likely to play against the Bears this weekend. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Raiders HC Josh McDaniels said Monday that QB Jimmy Garoppolo “dodged a big bullet” with regard to internal injuries, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. “The prognosis is a lot better than it might otherwise have been,” McDaniels added. Garoppolo is still undergoing further testing, and his status for Sunday's game vs. the Bears is uncertain.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 14 of 22 attempts for 162 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT apiece in the first half of Week 6 vs. the Patriots. Unfortunately, the veteran was ruled out at halftime after sustaining a back injury. QB Brian Hoyer came in relief to finish the contest. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Garoppolo was taken to a local hospital for precautionary tests on his back. It’ll be crucial to follow the injury reports this week to determine if Garoppolo will be healthy enough to suit up in Week 7 vs. the Bears.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo left Sunday’s game in the first half with a back injury. He’s doubtful to return. With Aidan O'Connell inactive, Brian Hoyer will play the second half for Vegas.

The Raiders will start rookie QB Aidan O'Connell over QB Brian Hoyer vs. the Chargers today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. O'Connell got the "majority" of the practice reps by the end of the week, per Schefter. O'Connell finished his four-year career at Purdue with a 66.7% completion rate, 7.4 yards per attempt, and 65 TDs vs. 30 INTs. He went in the fourth round of this spring's draft but was a preseason standout, completing 69.4% of his passes for 482 yards, three TDs, and 0 INTs. He ranked second among 68 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus passing grade. O'Connell is obviously a major question mark heading into his first regular-season start. But he at least brings more upside than the 37-year-old Hoyer.

The Raiders have downgraded QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) to out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. That means Brian Hoyer will start. It's obviously a downgrade for WRs Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers. Adams, though, delivered a 7-153-2 receiving line in Jarrett Stidham's first start last year after Derek Carr got benched. And he added a decent 5-73 the following week. So don't treat either player as though he's suddenly unusable, especially against a Chargers D that's already been bad and will now miss stars Joey Bosa and Derwin James. Check our Week 4 WR rankings to see where both settle.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He has a long way to go to be cleared for this weekend's game vs. the Chargers. QB Brian Hoyer is expected to start if Garoppolo can't. That'd be a significant downgrade for Vegas' pass-catchers.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo is in the concussion protocol, HC Josh McDaniel said Monday. That leaves Garoppolo no better than 50/50 to play vs. the Chargers this weekend. QB Brian Hoyer is No. 2 on Vegas' depth chart; rookie QB Aidan O'Connell No. 3

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. He got in 3 limited practices this week, so a Week 6 return looks possible. QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) was placed on IR, so it’ll be 4th-round rookie Bailey Zappe under center for New England this weekend.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice. QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) was placed on IR, knocking him out for at least the next 4 games. That means it'll be Bailey Zappe under center for New England this weekend if Jones can't go.

Patriots QB Brian Hoyer exited in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Packers to be checked for a concussion. Fourth-round rookie QB Bailey Zappe is next up for New England.

Update: Hoyer has been ruled out with a concussion.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Packers. He did get back on the practice field on Friday, so perhaps he can make it back for Week 5. QB Brian Hoyer gets the start for New England this weekend. That doesn’t figure to go well.

Patriots QB Mac Jones suffered a "severe" high-ankle sprain that is expected to cost him multiple games and would "cause many to have surgery," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jones and the team are reportedly still figuring out the course of action for the QB. But it seems we should expect him to be out for at least the near future. Brian Hoyer figures to fill in while Jones is out.

Tests on Patriots QB Mac Jones' left ankle revealed a "pretty severe" high-ankle sprain, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. "The hope is Jones won't need surgery," Pelissero adds. "Timetable still TBD but hard to imagine he plays this week vs. the Packers." We'd frankly be shocked if Jones was able to play this week and would expect him to miss multiple games. QB Brian Hoyer will take over for New England. The 36-year-old has made 2 starts since 2017, tossing 1 TD vs. 4 INTs in those games.

Patriots QB Mac Jones dealt with back spasms during or after Sunday's loss in Miami, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's relatively good news, although Rapoport adds that Jones has a "chance" to play this week. It sounds like we'll need to keep a close eye on him throughout the week. If Jones is unable to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, New England would turn to QB Brian Hoyer.

The Patriots announced that QB Mac Jones has a back injury. He was not made available to the media after the game and was seen heading for X-rays. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that those came back clean. We'll update Jones' status as soon as we know more. QB Brian Hoyer is New England's backup.
