Raiders preseason week 2 snap counts: Marquel Lee doesn’t start, sees few snaps vs Rams

New, comments

One look at the snap counts shows you the areas the Raiders know they need to improve. The Raiders were 12-4 last season on the strength of their offense and despite major issues at linebacker and with the secondary giving up explosive plays.

In the team’s first preseason game in Arizona, the stars on offense didn’t see the field while the first team defensive backs not only played, but played several drives. Their workload increased this week, with the same starting four of David Amerson, TJ Carrie, Reggie Nelson, and Karl Joseph all playing the majority of the defensive snaps (51%). Along with linebacker Cory James, they led the defense in snaps.

The results weren’t great either. The Rams drove for scores on three of their four first half drives to take a 17-14 lead at the half. Goff completed 16 of 20 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown for a passer rating of 116.7.

The battle at linebacker rages on. Undrafted rookie Nicholas Morrow got the start on the weak side with Cory James starting at middle linebacker over rookie Marquel Lee who saw his snaps drop to just 11 (15%). He also saw 6 snaps on special teams.

It would offseason first teamer Tyrell Adams who would get one fewer snaps (37) than James (38) followed by Jelani Jenkins (34). Morrow played 26 snaps (36%).
