Karl Joseph Injury Updates

The Raiders on Saturday placed S Karl Joseph on IR with the right foot injury he suffered at the end of Thursday night's win over the Chargers. The team signed S D.J. Swearinger to fill his roster spot. We'll see about Swearinger's playing time in a fluid Oakland secondary. The team also signed DE Dion Jordan over the weekend. A one-time top-5 pick in the NFL Draft, Jordan has busted hard through stints with the Dolphins and Seahawks. We'll see if he can get anything together in Oakland, but Jordan's not likely to become an IDP factor.

Raiders S Karl Joseph left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's win over the Bills with a left big toe injury. S Nate Allen filled in the rest of the way. Joseph didn't open the game on the field, however -- with Reggie Nelson the lone true safety, alongside CBs David Amerson, Sean Smith and T.J. Carrie. That followed a 76.9% snap share for Joseph in Week 12, his smallest since entering the lineup. Combine that with the toe injury, and it's tough to trust Joseph over the next 3 weeks. You can stash him on your bench in a deeper IDP league, but feel free to move on to another DB in average-sized redraft leagues.
