The Las Vegas Raiders find themselves in midweek preparations for the Denver Broncos, who arrive in town this Sunday. One of the lingering issues with silver and black has been the injury bug. So far, it’s a mixed bag when it comes to who’s healthy, and one key contributor still isn’t practicing.

As most Raiders fans remember, advertised slot receiver Hunter Renfrow was on the wrong side of Isaiah Simmons’ blow that left him concussed. A hit that also resulted in the recovery and the winning fumble score. Since then, the number 13 has not trained. According to The Athletic’s Tashan Reed, Renfrow did not train today, adding to speculation he could be out for an extended period. Sure, it’s mostly cooler talk, but Renfrow’s ball-safety issues compounded by the disastrous hit have highlighted concerns about the Pro Bowler. Either way, the passing offense buzzed Sunday against the Tennessee Titans as Mack Hollins got some extra looks, which he paid for in kind with a monster outing. For now, we will continue to monitor Renfrow’s health.

Breaking Raiders News: Andre James making progress towards a comeback

Reed shared some positive news regarding the Raiders’ offense. Andre James continues to train with the team despite missing the last two contests. As some may recall, James was training in a non-contact red shirt last week, so judging by today’s events, he could be one step closer to his long-awaited comeback. But what about defense? According to Reed, there have been some positive developments in this regard.

#Raiders C Andre James appears to be continuing to train. He missed the last two games with a concussion and trained in a non-contact red jersey last week, but is training in a normal jersey today.

Running game inconsistencies continue to plague Raiders offense

And the defense?

Raider Nation can take solace in the fact that cornerback Rock Ya-Sin is training again. He injured his knee Sunday against the Titans. Needless to say, had his illness been more severe, the cornerback squad would have been severely depleted. Speaking of cornerback, Nate Hobbs didn’t practice today due to a concussion. It will definitely be something everyone will be watching as the weekend approaches. On a final positive note, linebacker Denzel Perryman was back in practice for the first time since his absence after Week 1.

Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis had a closed meeting with his head coach, Josh McDaniels, after a third straight loss. Something or nothing?

The 2022 season has been very disappointing on all fronts for the Raiders. Chandler Jones, free signing of the big name, is nowhere to be found. In fact, his snaps have gone down today. Derek Carr and the McDaniels-led offense spat out the door. Darren Waller’s appalling falls, Hunter Renfrow’s fumbles and downright horrible offensive line play hampered any progress. It should be noted, however, perhaps in defense of McDaniels, that all three Raiders losses were winnable. If it weren’t for a few mistakes, Las Vegas could easily be 2-1 right now.

Either way, the team is winless, a distinction that now belongs solely to the Silver and Black. Obviously, no one would blame Davis if he already had doubts. He made a big investment in this new regime, stepping aside to allow general manager Dave Ziegler to build him a champion team. Unfortunately, Ziegler’s choice for the head coach isn’t up to par at the moment.

#Raiders coach Josh McDaniels walks into the interview room after a lengthy closed-door meeting with owner Mark Davis.

Raiders News: Is Josh McDaniels already in hot water with owner Mark Davis?

As originally reported by ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez, McDaniel was visibly late to the press conference after the match concluded by a few minutes. That’s when Gutierrez mentioned the closed meeting. Of course, it goes without saying that we won’t know what happened between Davis and McDaniels. It was all smiles when Davis introduced the power duo of McDaniels and Ziegler in January. Sadly, that’s now a distant memory for most Raiders fans and, in all likelihood, for Davis as well. The high expectations placed on the Raiders were justified after an impressive offseason.

It looks like there’s a lot to sort out with the roster, but the coaching, storylines, and play calls were a total disaster, like the decision to drop the running game in crucial parts of the game. It’s We’re unlikely to find out what the owner said any time soon, but it will certainly create speculation and guesswork around McDaniels this week with the Denver Broncos.

The buzz surrounding the Las Vegas Raiders entering this week’s game was going to be their run defense. In particular, whether they could stop, or even slow down, Derrick Henry was on everyone’s mind. Well, it’s not going well so far.

come in today’s game, the Raiders had the 16th ranked defense in rushing yards allowed (219). All in all, it could have been worse before the Titans game. Obviously, the Raiders had yet to face a running back of Henry’s caliber, so this ranking was definitely going to be tested.

Raiders News: How are the Raiders faring against Derrick Henry?

Henry had gotten off to a slow start this year, especially against the Buffalo Bills, where he was limited to 25 rushing yards. Today, against Las Vegas, Henry has already accumulated 64 yards on the ground. This is based on 11 carries for an average of 5.8 yards per attempt. He also broke up a fine 24-yard run in the first quarter before being stopped by Johnathan Abram.

Henry also makes his presence known in the air in the passing game. Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has targeted Henry three times so far. With the No. 22, he took him down three times for a total of 42 yards, making a big 23-yard reception in his own right. Overall, it’s been lousy for the Raiders’ defense. There is no other way to say it. For the Raiders to get back into it, Patrick Graham’s defense will have to tighten the screw. You can’t do much against Henry. If your tackle isn’t perfect, he’ll make you pay. Right now, Raiders fans are wondering what all the hype surrounding Graham’s defense this offseason is. It’s an understandable frustration from a fanbase who have been disappointed with their team’s performance so far. let’s see what happens in the second half.

The news broke earlier than Hunter Renfrow was going out for the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. As Raider Nation recalls, Renfrow received a base hit from Arizona Cardinals linebacker Isaiah Simmons that resulted in a costly fumble. It’s been a rocky start for Renfrow this season, coughing up the ball in consecutive weeks. Either way, Renfrow’s value and impact to the Raiders cannot be underestimated. His injury highlights the history of the two teamsthe Tennessee Raiders and Titans, and the unusually high number of injuries they face.

With Renfrow out, quarterback Derek Carr will be without his slot receiver for the first time since Weeks 12-14 of 2019, when he was inactive. Without a doubt, one of the toughest Raiders players in recent history, Renfrow has seen issues arise with ball safety. Additionally, Renfrow’s size is in question due to the nature of the beatings he receives. Obviously, concussions are no laughing matter. The NFL takes this seriously, as do the Raiders. And now?

As for Sunday’s game, Carr still has wide superstar Davante Adams and tight end Darren Waller. Renfrow’s absence will surely translate to more looks for Mack Hollins, who saw eight targets last week. Raider Nation can now expect the other Raiders receivers to step in, namely Tyron Johnson and Keelan Cole.

Raiders News: Raider Nation address Renfrow’s injury

It doesn’t take a detective to gauge the pulse of Raiders fans right now. A very disappointing 0-2 start, coupled with a litany of questions surrounding the O line, Josh McDaniels and Carr himself, created a rather peculiar atmosphere. per atmosphere. We are referring to social media, specifically Raiders Twitter. Fans are never one to hold back, and as you can imagine, the response to Renfrow’s release was swift.

The Las Vegas Raiders have finally tackled their offensive line, going to a familiar well in the process.

According to NFL Media, Las Vegas traded for backup offensive tackle Justin Herron from the New England Patriots with teams flipping draft picks in 2024. Herron will likely be a reserve player. To make room for Herron on the 53-man roster, the Raiders are releasing cornerback Javelin Guidry. Exemptions have recently been requested. He could go to the Raiders’ practice squad if he’s not claimed.

The Raiders’ offensive line has needed depth as the coaching staff tries to figure out the best rotation. Additionally, starting right tackle Jermaine Eluemunor left Sunday’s home 29-23 in overtime against the Arizona Cardinals with a hip injury and missed some time. It’s unclear what his status is for Sunday’s game at the Tennessee Titans. Seventh-round pick Thayer Munford took his place.

Herron, 26, was a 2020 Patriots sixth-round pick on WakeForest. Of course, Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels, general manager Dave Ziegler and offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo were in New England when Herron was drafted. This new brass has added several former New England players and Herron is the second player they have acquired in a trade from the Patriots, joining quarterback Jarrett Stidham.

Herron hasn’t played a single game this season, but he has played 28 games in his first two seasons with 10 starts. McDaniels was his offensive coordinator both years, so Herron should slip into the Raiders’ system quickly.

After a legendary meltdown in the Las Vegas Raiders’ home opener, it’s hard to see the positives. However, if you look in the right places, you can see silver linings in the second-half attacking collapse. The problem is that you have to go in with a magnifying glass to find those silver linings. And, while Pro Football Focus isn’t the ultimate solution, it’s still a useful metric for further examination of the game, so we’ll take a look at the top five positives according to PFF and see what we can find. .

Raiders News: Who did better for Silver and Black?

Josh Jacobs, AR: 77.9

Jacobs had the highest-rated week for the Raiders. There are a few disappointing parts about this rating, however. First, the rating didn’t even go above 80, so what does that say about the rest of the offense? Second, Jacobs only touched the ball three times in the fourth quarter. Jacobs seems to have run hard and done something for nothing more often than he should have in two games. Josh McDaniels must stick to his plan to feed Jacobs in the coming weeks if they are to turn around.

Kolton Miller, LT: 71.5

Seeing Miller here is a feast for the eyes. After an abysmal rating of 58.7 in week 1, it’s quite a turnaround. And no, he didn’t face Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack in Week 2, but it’s still good to see the rating improve. Seeing how the O line will be the Achilles heel of this offense, it’s essential that their anchor works to see progress across the board. And God knows they need to see improvements.

How did the Raiders tight ends fare in Week 2?

Darren Waller, SD: 69.3

You see, this is where my problems with PFF really start; with notes like this for Waller. Yeah, he didn’t put up a crazy stat line, but he seemed to be on target at every major moment of the game. On third down, the end zone, safety cover, whatever, Waller was there for Derek Carr. I’m not entirely sure what PFF was seeing here, but if it was worth a 69.3, I hope No. 83 gets a 69.3 every week. Fix your grading system already.

Foster Moreau, SD: 68.2

See above because tight ends appeared to be “on the march” on Sunday. I guess a stat line of three receptions for 30 yards isn’t impressive. But even more than Waller, Moreau laid down key blocks throughout the match. And although a screen in his own way exploded, it should not go against him. At least based on his strengths, Moreau seemed to be playing a good game. He’s not the better stealer Waller is, but at the line of scrimmage, Moreau seemed to be playing higher than his rating indicated.

The weakest link?

John Simpson, LO: 67.9

A similar situation to Miller above, after receiving the worst PFF rating among Raiders offensive linemen in Game 1, Simpson saw a 17.6 point jump in his rating. Unlike Week 1, you haven’t heard much of Simpson’s name. Which, for an offensive lineman, is a good thing. So seeing the steps of two linemen is a major positive sign for the Raiders. Maybe they’re not as badly off as Raider Nation thought?

Improvements to the offensive line and running back positions are positive for silver and black. Four of the highest ranked players have their hands in the dirt to start a game (traditionally). Continuous improvement there will lead to improvement elsewhere, and for the sake of Raider Nation, that improvement must continue.

Despite a rocky start to the 2022 season, the Las Vegas Raiders have seen two of their young cornerbacks flourish recently. Second-year defenseman Nate Hobbs and third-year cornerback Amik Robertson quietly reunited outstanding performance in consecutive games. So much so that the likes of Pro Football Focus gave Hobbs and Robertson the top 10 coverage ratings of any NFL cornerback. Let’s take a closer look at this new Raiders trend.

To understand how these two young CBs received so much praise, we’ll look at the window of opportunity that opened up for them, how Patrick Graham’s new program has helped them, and some areas where they need to improve to continue to grow.

The Raiders Secondary 🔥🔥 The Las Vegas Raiders feature 2 CBs in the top 10 of all PFF coverage CBs going through 2 games Nate Hobbs – 79.6 (8th in league) Amik Robertson – 77.9 (10th in the league)

Raiders News: An opportunity presented itself

Heading into Week 1, Dave Ziegler and Josh McDaniels’ new regime probably felt good with how their cornerback room had taken shape. Following the trade involving Trayvon Mullen that sent him to Arizona, the Raiders entered the season with newly acquired Rock Ya-Sin and Anthony Averett locking up CB’s two outside spots. Nate Hobbs and Amik Robertson entered the third and fourth corners respectively. Everything changed in week 1. It was revealed that Averett had broken his thumb. The injury landed him on injured reserve, with a four-week absence coming up.

With Averett injured, it was then up to Hobbs and Robertson to answer the call on Sunday. The two young defenders not only answered the call, but they did well with the chance given to them. Robertson made his first interception of his career in the first half against Arizona, for example.

It will be up to this pair to continue to find success in the absence of playmakers. If they can continue this streak of quality play, Averett might find it difficult to return to his starting role.

An improved scheme

As Graham dabbles in a bit of Gus Bradley-ish Cover 3, it runs a much more diverse program than its predecessor. Thus, Hobbs and Robertson had the opportunity to see how their playing styles translate to the wishes of the current staff. Using a lot of Cover 6 on early downs and Cover 0 on short range blitzes/downs, the duo became a force in the Man and Zone concepts.

Not only did the improved scheme give more flexibility to the Raiders’ defense as a whole, but it allowed the secondary more leeway when switching between concepts. Putting his players in the best position possible has worked well for Graham so far. Luckily, his young cornerback duo benefited immensely by being played to their strengths.

There’s still room to grow for this Raiders duo

Despite the love they both received, I firmly believe that there is always room to grow. As for Hobbs, I think he is very technical and has above average instructions on and off the ball. That being said, Hobbs can sometimes get too aggressive mid-round. Carrying two defensive penalties against Arizona is a tough pill to swallow because he was otherwise fantastic. An easy problem to fix, but something that’s notable enough to need some work.

On the other hand, Amik has more of an uphill battle, as his problem stems from his natural constitution. Clocking in at 5’8″, Amik has struggled against tall receivers throughout his career. Despite this, Amik showed excellent skill and off-the-ball technique in the first two games. He even used his instincts to draw Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray into a bad interception.

Raider Nation should expect the increased playing time and experience to benefit both Hobbs and Robertson in their respective development. The Raiders should also feel their cornerback depth is in good hands with this duo, unlike some other positional groups.

Hunter Renfrow: no update on Raiders WR after a big success

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr made several costly interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday. Either way, Carr almost led his team to another win from behind, something he’s no stranger to. However, avoiding that scenario altogether might be the smartest route against the Arizona Cardinals. Heading into that next game, the Raiders will be looking to exploit the Cardinals’ tendency to blitz regularly and get the ball into the hands of their wide receivers quickly. Former Raiders cornerback and now NFL analyst DeAngelo Hall predicts two of the Raiders’ stars will reach the end zone as a result.

Do Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller both owe a touchdown against the Cardinals?

As the Raiders will surely remember, Carr leaned heavily on Davante Adams. To be fair, Adams repaid that trust with double-digit receptions and a touchdown, as well as eight first conversions. Still, 17 total targets is a lot considering the other options Carr has, especially Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller. Hall believes the latter are both due for a score this Sunday.

“Davante Adams was – unsurprisingly – the apple of Derek Carr’s eye in the season opener, with the pair connecting 10 times for 141 yards, while Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow combined for 100 receiving yards. This week, however, the veteran QB involves Waller and Renfrow early and often, as they double their combined yardage from last week and each score a touchdown.

Looking at to numbers, the Raiders’ passing offense compares favorably to the Cardinals. Clearly, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes shredded the Cards pass defense last Sunday. So with the multitude of weapons Carr has at his disposal, there’s no reason to think he can’t have two or three touchdown passes against this defense. Last year, Arizona had the Pass defense ranked 25th in touchdowns yielded (30), allowing nearly 6.5 yards per pass attempt. In stark contrast, the Raiders ranked sixth in passing yards, throwing nearly 269 yards per game.

Can Derek Carr bounce back on Sunday?

Despite Carr’s turnovers, the fact is that he was too aggressive, forcing throws, especially to Adams. Against a team that loves to blitz, Josh McDaniels will certainly have to find a way to get some extra time to shoot. Maybe bringing in a second tight end or putting one of the runners back in pass protection could be the answer. If Carr is looking to split the ball, look for Renfrow and Waller to make the Cardinals defense pay. As Hall mentioned, as long as Carr pitches the aforementioned duo early and often, there’s no reason to think his prediction won’t come to fruition.

As the Las Vegas Raiders prepare for their Week 2 fight with the Arizona Cardinals, several injuries continue to plague the roster. According to The Athletic’s Tashan Reed, several notable Raiders were absent from practice today. This casts doubt on their future and their availability for this Sunday.

Raiders News: The team is without three starters today

#Raiders LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) is not there, so it’s the same absences as yesterday for Vegas: Perryman, Moehrig, James and Bolden.

Denzel Perryman, Trevon Moehrig and Andre James weren’t available at the Raiders’ practice facility. James was taken by ambulance right after the Los Angeles Chargers game last Sunday. Losing your starting center is a devastating injury, especially considering how thin the offensive line is. As Reed reported, the Raiders have rookie Dylan Parham taking pictures with the first team today. Most people agreed that Parham could possibly be the center of the team one day. However, no one ever thought that would happen in his second NFL game. If James isn’t cleared, dealing with the Arizona Cardinals’ vaunted pass rush would be a trial by fire for Parham.

Sophomore safety Moehrig saw limited action Sunday due to a hip injury. The Raiders have veteran depth behind him, which softens the loss somewhat. In another development, Perryman, the Pro Bowl linebacker, did not practice due to an ankle injury. As for the Raiders’ linebackers, if Perryman is unable to dress, they’d likely take out Divine Deablo and Jayon Brown. Leader of this defense, Perryman recorded three tackles and a tackle for a loss against the Chargers.

In more Raiders news, running back Brandon Bolde was also released today. Bolden, who caught a touchdown pass from Derek Carr on Sunday, also had three rushing attempts behind Josh Jacobs. This offseason, head coach Josh McDaniels has been keen to stock up at running back. If Bolden is eliminated against the Cardinals, expect more from Ameer Abdullah. Perhaps fans will also be able to see rookie Zamir White.

Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels addressed the media today addressing several topics, although high on the agenda was injury update. The Raiders suffered multiple injuries, but two key losses were defensive back Trevon Moehrig and center Andre James.

Losing James was particularly crushing for McDaniels and Co. James crashed on the last offensive play, leaving in an ambulance immediately after the game. While Moehrig is suffering from a hip injury and has yet to practice. Both players hold vital positions for the Raiders. James’ fall leaves the offensive line extremely shorthanded. As for Moehrig, the Silver and Black have veteran Duron Harmon behind them, as well as UDFA star Isaiah Pola-Mao. It’s certainly not the start Raiders fans envisioned for the 2022 season, a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers coupled with a host of injuries.

Asked about specific updates or a report on an individual, McDaniels only offered a vague and direct response.

“Yeah, no reports. They’re all obviously working to, you know, go out and see how it goes today. I would say we’ll see how it goes today. For some of these guys, of course. [We are] i hope we get some of these guys [back]. If that’s not most of them, check back here soon. But they’ve all been treated here for 48 hours. Like I said, we’ll see how it goes today and then try to assess it from there.

Obviously, the aforementioned players are being evaluated, so giving anything other than this answer could be risky. Moreover, fans should be used to this head coach by now. Much like his mentor in New England, McDaniels keeps everything close to the chest. Either way, the Raiders are likely anxious heading into this Sunday. These injuries are significant, and that is an understatement.

We will expect an official injury report today.
