Shark Bites

The Associated Press' Tony Collins hears that Raiders HC Dennis Allen will be fired this week.  An announcement could come as soon as Tuesday.  Oakland is off to an 0-4 start and has been out-scored 103 to 51.  Allen's career record with the Raiders sits at 8-28.  We'll see who takes over as the interim HC, but the shakeup certainly can't hurt the Raiders' offense.  Derek Carr should remain the starting QB when healthy.

Update: Collins has deleted the tweet reporting Allen's firing.

Recent Shark Bites

The Raiders have ruled out defensive starters S Johnathan Abram (concussion), LB Nicholas Morrow (concussion), DE Clelin Ferrell (shoulder) and CB Damon Arnette (concussion, neck) for Thursday night’s game against the Chargers. That obviously enhances an already favorable matchup for a struggling Chargers offense. We’ll see if Anthony Lynn & Co. allow Justin Herbert’s crew to take advantage

The Raiders could be without DE Clelin Ferrell, LB Nicholas Morrow and S Johnathan Abram when they play the Chargers on Thursday night. Morrow and Abram each left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game with concussions. HC Jon Gruden said Monday they're in the concussion protocol. The short turnaround for Week 15 makes them unlikely to be ready. Ferrell left in the 1st quarter with a left-shoulder injury. Gruden also said it will be "tough" for Ferrell to make it back for Thursday night, according to SB Nation's Bill Williamson. We'll keep an eye on their statuses, but plan to have none of the 3 available for IDP use. Ferrell's absence would likely mean starter-level snaps for Arden Key, after DE Carl Nassib was a healthy scratch the past 2 weeks. Morrow's absence should mean a playing-time boost for disappointing LB Cory Littleton. Dallin Leavitt looks like the fill-in for Abram, with Jeff Heath's concussion having landed him on IR Saturday. The Raiders also might continue to miss starting CB Damon Arnette (concussion).

The Raiders have ruled S Jeff Heath (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Colts. S Johnathan Abram (knee) is questionable. He managed limited practices all week after missing last Sunday's game. We'll see about his status Sunday.

Raiders LB Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) and S Jonathan Abram (shoulder, thumb) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. Kwiatkoski -- who has been out since straining a pectoral muscle early in the season opener -- graduated to full practice Friday and looks on track to play. Abram put in limited workouts all week, but Raiders Wire reports that Abram "appears likely to play" as well. Both are IDP options if in the lineup. Holding off on Kwiatkoski for another week would be OK, though, as Buffalo has been a negative scoring matchup for fantasy LBs.

Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict (shoulder) and DB Lamarcus Joyner (groin) are active for today's game against the Vikings. Each entered the day questionable but is fine to use as you might have planned in your IDP lineup.
