Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) and DE Carl Nassib (pec, toe) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Each entered the day questionable. Ngakoue is in play for IDP use, but the hamstring certainly adds risk.

Raiders HC Jon Gruden is "optimistic" that DE Yannick Ngakoue will be able to play against the Steelers today. Ngakoue is questionable with a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Week 1 early and limited his practice participation all week. The fact that he was able to participate each day is encouraging, but there's obviously at least some risk of re-injury here. Ngakoue is in play for IDP lineups, but keep the risk in mind as you're making your decisions. He has settled into low DL3 territory in our Week 2 DL rankings.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. He left Week 1 early with the injury but managed limited practices all week. We'll check his status Sunday morning. DE Carl Nassib (pectoral, toe) is also questionable. He missed practice Wednesday before putting in limited Thursday and Friday workouts. The pair make up 2 of Las Vegas' top 3 at the position.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue left with a hamstring injury in the 2nd half of Monday night's game against the Ravens. The team deemed him questionable to return, but he was standing on the sideline with no helmet. We'll see about the severity.

The Raiders made DE Clelin Ferrell inactive for the Monday-night game against Baltimore. Vegas' signing of DE Carl Nassib and then DE Yannick Ngakoue to sizable contracts the past 2 offseasons pointed to dissatisfaction with the position group. But this is a noteworthy step because the Raiders drafted Ferrell 4th overall just 3 years ago. Consider Ngakoue, Maxx Crosby and Carl Nassib locked in as the Raiders' top 3 edge players heading into the opener.

The Raiders have agreed to a 2-year, $26 million deal with DE Yannick Ngakoue, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's a questionable signing for a defense that has Maxx Crosby and 2019 first-round pick Clelin Ferrell in place, plus Carl Nassib, who arrived on a sizable free-agent deal last offseason. The money certainly points to Ngakoue taking over a primary pass-rushing role. We'll see what that means for everyone else's playing time. Ngakoue endured a rough 2020 that saw him get traded twice (from Jacksonville to Minnesota to Baltimore). His 8 sacks matched the previous season, but Ngakoue managed a career-low 11 QB hits (including just 3 over 9 games with the Ravens). We won't be pumped about Ngakoue in IDP drafts for 2021.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (shoulder) and OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) are active for today's game against the Titans. CB Jimmy Smith is also active for the 1st time since Week 14. Smith hasn't played more than half the snaps in a game since Week 9. A healthier Baltimore defense is obviously bad news for Tennessee's offense, though this game still carries plenty of shootout potential. The 54-point over/under comes in 3.5 points higher than any other game on the slate.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (shoulder) and OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Humphrey played through the issue last week and made it through a full practice Friday. So he should be good to go. Ngakoue also progressed from missing practice all last week and then sitting out the game to participating every day this week and finishing with a full Friday workout. So he appears on track to return. We'll check the status of both on Sunday.

Ravens EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) is inactive for today's regular-season finale against the Bengals. CB Marlon Humphrey, CB Marcus Peters and DE Calais Campbell, though, are all active after entering the day questionable.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (knee, shoulder), DE/OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh), CB Marcus Peters (calf) and DE Calais Campbell (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Humphrey, Peters and Campbell all finished the week with full practices, so we'd guess they'll be ready to play. Ngakoue, on the other hand, missed practice all week. There may be coaching decisions involved with playoffs starting next week, but Baltimore has not yet clinched their spot. We'll check on all statuses before the game Sunday.

Ravens DE/OLB Yannick Ngakoue suffered a thigh injury in Sunday's win over the Giants. We'll see about his status heading into the regular-season finale at Cincinnati.

According to multiple reports, the Vikings are trading DE Yannick Ngakoue to the Ravens for a 3rd-round pick in 2021 and a conditional 5th-rounder in 2022. Minnesota, of course, just acquired Ngakoue from Jacksonville before the season for a 2nd-round 2021 pick plus the same conditional-level selection. The veteran pass-rusher has produced, delivering 5 sacks in 6 games. Ngakoue will play OLB in Baltimore's 3-4 alignment, but he should retain his DL eligibility in IDP leagues. He figures to take playing time from OLBs Jaylon Ferguson and Tyus Bowser, across from Matt Judon. Minnesota, meanwhile, now counts Ifeadi Odenigbo and Jalyn Holmes as its top 2 DEs -- unless Danielle Hunter is nearing a return from his neck injury. Both teams are on bye this week, so we'll see what else we learn about both situations before their Week 8 contests.

The Vikings are trading a pair of draft picks to the Jaguars for DE Yannick Ngakoue, according to multiple reports. Jacksonville gets a 2021 second-rounder and a conditional 5th-round pick in 2022. According to Adam Schefter, that pick becomes a 4th if Ngakoue makes the Pro Bowl this season; a 3rd if Ngakoue makes the Pro Bowl and the Vikings win the Super Bowl. Ngakoue has delivered 8+ sacks and 14+ QB hits in each of his 4 seasons. He should quickly take over the right DE job from Ifeadi Odenigbo, who has been replacing the departed Everson Griffen. The Jaguars, meanwhile, now have more edge snaps available for 1st-round pick K'Lavon Chaisson. He has reportedly impressed HC Doug Marrone since returning from an early-camp hamstring injury.
