The Raiders might not have EDGE Chandler Jones or LB Denzel Perryman in the lineup any more this season. Jones left Saturday night's loss to the Steelers with an elbow injury that found him carted from the sideline to the locker room. LB Denzel Perryman dislocated his left shoulder in the game. HC Josh McDaniels told reporters Monday that each player might miss the rest of the season, according to The Athletic's Tashan Reed. The Raiders are still not yet officially eliminated from the playoffs, but that seems likely to happen in Week 17. Barring some shift in the diagnosis for either player, we'd bet surprised to see either back on the field this season.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that EDGE Chandler Jones is finalizing a deal with the Raiders that's expected to average $17 million a year. Jones has delivered 10+ sacks in every season since 2013 that has seen him play at least 10 games. His 10.5 sacks last year marked his low for that span, though, and Jones' 47 total pressures tied for just 44th in the league, according to Pro Football Focus. He'll start opposite Maxx Crosby for a Vegas team that is reportedly trading Yannick Ngakoue. Jones turned 32 in February, so we wouldn't be surprised if his production declines further. On the positive side, moving to the Raiders defense should mean DE eligibility rather than LB in fantasy football leagues that rely on those designations. We'll see about Jones' draft price in IDP leagues this summer.

The Cardinals on Monday activated EDGE Chandler Jones from the COVID list. Their lead pass rusher missed the past 2 games but should be available for Thursday night's clash with the Packers. Arizona also activated DE Zach Allen from the COVID list.

Cardinals EDGE Chandler Jones will not come off the COVID list in time for Sunday’s game against the Texans, according to Darren Urban of the team website.

Cardinals LB Jordan Hicks (toe) is active for today's game against the Browns. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning for a limited Friday workout and appeared truly questionable. Don't be surprised if we see fewer snaps than usual, but Hicks is available if you got here planning to use him in IDP lineups. CBs Byron Murphy (ribs) and Marco Wilson (ribs) are also active after arriving questionable. The defense will be without EDGE Chandler Jones, who is on the COVID list.
