Raiders LB Denzel Perryman (ribs) is active for today's game against the Broncos. His return hurts the chances of LB Jason Brown seeing full playing time.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman (hip, ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. That leaves Vegas without its top 3 LBs from last week’s lineup. Veteran Jayon Brown looks like the best bet to lead the corps this week, though it’s a guess after he spent the past 2 games as a healthy scratch

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman (hip, ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. He put in limited practices the past 2 days after missing Wednesday. If he's ready to go, Perryman will carry big upside against a Colts team that has supplied more fantasy points to LBs than any other.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman (hip, ribs) returned to a limited practice Thursday after missing Wednesday. If he's ready to play Sunday, he should lead the team's LBs in snaps. Divine Deablo landed on IR this week, and Blake Martinez retired Thursday. An active Perryman will be a strong play in a high-upside matchup for LBs.

Raiders LB Blake Martinez announced Thursday that he's retiring. It's a shocking move, given that Martinez had made his way into the Raiders lineup after getting his release from the Giants at the start of the season. Martinez appeared in line to start this Sunday against the Colts after the team placed Divine Deablo (forearm) on IR. It's not yet clear who the Raiders will have at LB this weekend. In addition to Deablo and Martinez, Denzel Perryman (hip, ribs) did not practice Wednesday. Jayon Brown -- a healthy scratch in Week 9 -- Luke Masterson and Darien Butler are next in line. Martinez played 5 seasons with the Packers (4) and Giants before losing most of 2021 to an ACL tear.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman missed Wednesday's practice with hip and rib injuries. Levi Damien of Raiders Wire says Perryman was "visibly in pain for much of the game" in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. It's tough to say whether that impacted his playing time. Perryman played 75% of defensive snaps vs. 91% for Blake Martinez, in a game Divine Deablo left early. With Deablo now on IR, Martinez looks like the safest IDP option in the corps for this week and a solid-to-good starter over at least the next 4 games. We'll see about Perryman's status for Sunday's home date with the Colts, a high-upside matchup.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Raiders are releasing S Johnathan Abram. It's a surprising move, given that Abram has just a half-season left on his rookie contract. The former 1st-round pick has been rumored to be on the trading block since at least this past offseason. He remained a starter through the first 6 games of this season. That playing time fell off the past 2 games, though. Abram will now be free to find a new team, while the Raiders move forward with Duron Harmon and Trevon Moehrig as the starters.

The Raiders placed LB Divine Deablo on IR Monday with a forearm injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. He'll now miss at least the next 4 games, making Deablo droppable in most IDP leagues. Blake Martinez filled in and led Raiders LBs in playing time at Jacksonville, collecting a game-high 11 tackles. He looks like a strong IDP option over the next month. LB Denzel Perryman checked in just behind Martinez with 10 tackles against the Jaguars but played just 75% of snaps vs. Martinez's 91%.

Raiders LB Divine Deablo left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars with a right-forearm injury. LB Blake Martinez took advantage, tallying a team-high 11 tackles (8 solo). We'll see about the severity of Deablo's injury and check out the snap counts for Martinez and LB Denzel Perryman (10 tackles) once they're released.

Raiders LB Divine Deablo (back, wrist) is active for today's game against the Jaguars. He played through a questionable tag last week as well for a full snap share and should be in most IDP lineups.

Raiders LB Divine Deablo (back, ankle) and S Johnathan Abram (illness) are active for today's game against the Saints. Deablo carries some risk after barely practicing this week, but both are in play for IDP use.

Raiders S Johnathan Abram (illness) and LB Divine Deablo (back, ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Abram put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. Deablo managed only a limited Friday and doesn't look like a great bet for fantasy football lineups. Denzel Perryman would likely lead LB playing time for the Raiders if Deablo can't go. LB Jason Brown is also ready to return after missing last week with a hamstring injury.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman left Sunday's win over the Broncos early with a concussion. He had just returned from the ankle sprain that knocked him out of Week 1 early. We'll see how Perryman progresses through the league protocol. Divine Deablo worked as the corps leader with Perryman out before. Jayon Brown got playing time in the 70-80% range.

Raiders CB Rock Ya-Sin is inactive for today's game against the Broncos.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman put in a limited practice Wednesday, the 1st time he has been on the field since leaving the opener with an ankle injury. We'll see just what the LB roles look like if Perryman's ready for game action. Divine Deablo has led the group in snaps the past 3 weeks. Pro Football Focus grades him just 68th, however, among 86 LBs with 45+ snaps played so far. LB Jason Brown checks in 70th, trailing Deablo as the #2 in playing time. Perryman was the every-down LB for last year's Raiders but has an uneven history of use across 3 franchises.

The Raiders have ruled LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Titans. It'll be his 2nd straight missed game with the Week 1 injury. Perryman's absence should keep LB Divine Deablo in the lead role and elevate playing time again for LB Jayon Brown. They played 100% and 77% of defensive snaps, respectively, in Week 2. S Trevor Moehrig (hip) is questionable.

The Raiders have ruled LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He missed practice every day this week with the injury that knocked him out of the opener. We'll see about his status for Week 3. Divine Deablo led Vegas LBs in playing time in Week 1. The Raiders have also ruled out S Tre'von Moehrig. Duron Harmon should start in his place.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Raiders LB Denzel Perryman is considered day-to-day with the ankle injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Chargers. That puts Perryman in play for Week 2. We'll watch his status through the practice week. Divine Deablo led Vegas LBs in playing time in Perryman's absence, with Jayon Brown trailing.

The Raiders are trading CB Trayvon Mullen to the Cardinals, getting back merely a conditional 7th-round pick. Mullen was the 40th overall pick in 2019 and started 31 of 37 healthy games over 3 seasons with the Raiders. The trade compensation, however, indicates pretty low standing for a 25-year-old in the final year of his rookie contract. Arizona is weak enough at CB, however -- with Marco Wilson, Antonio Hamilton and Byron Murphy topping the depth chart -- that Mullen could push for playing time soon. The Raiders, meanwhile, have Anthony Averett, Rock Ya-Sin and Nate Hobbs looking like their top 3.

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.
