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

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.

The Raiders have released LB Derrick Johnson. The veteran's playing time had dwindled to just about a quarter of the defensive snaps over the past 3 games, so his departure shouldn't mean much for the Oakland defense. It could, however, mean a further playing-time boost for Marquel Lee, the 2nd-year LB who had supplanted Johnson as the middle starter. Though their snap counts didn't correlate directly over the past 4 games, they came pretty close. Lee will be interesting to watch for IDP purposes. He's only an add in deep/dynasty formats right now.

Raiders OLB Bruce Irvin (concussion) and DL Denico Autry (hand) are active for tonight's game against the Eagles. Neither is much of an IDP option. As expected, Oakland will miss CB David Amerson (foot) once again. He entered the day doubtful.

Raiders OLB Bruce Irvin (concussion) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Eagles. He returned to practice Friday but has yet to complete the league protocol. DL Denico Autry (hand) is also questionable. The Raiders have ruled DE Mario Edwards (ankle) out for the game and will likely continue to miss CB David Amerson (foot), who is doubtful.

The Raiders have ruled DE Mario Edwards (ankle) out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. CB David Amerson (foot) is also doubtful for the game. He has missed the past 6 contests with the injury.
