12:48 p.m.: Many Raiders aren’t even in Santa Clara today.
Heard that most of the Raiders starters didn’t even travel with the team to Santa Clara.— Taylor Wirth (@WirthTM) August 29, 2021
Somewhere around 49 players total on-hand for the game.
.@Raiders DB's that are dressed out: A. Robertson, I. Johnson, D. Arnette, N. Lawson, K. Joseph, D. Leavitt, R. Turner, T. Gillespie, B. Wreh-Wilson— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) August 29, 2021
FYI: A bunch of Raiders across the roster did not make the tip
9:12 p.m.: Stefen Wisniewski, who entered the NFL as a second-round pick of the Raiders, has retired after 11 NFL seasons. Lil Wiz was a nice player and a good dude. Congrats, enjoy the sunset.
11:22 a.m.: Here is a Raiders’ injury update:
Raiders players I don't see at practice: RB Jalen Richard (foot), G Richie Incognito (calf), LB Nicholas Morrow (foot), LB Javin White (knee), CB Keisean Nixon, DE Clelin Ferrell and LB Nick Kwiatkoski.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) August 25, 2021
9:59 a.m.: AFC West news:
The Broncos have named Teddy Bridgewater their starting QB.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) August 25, 2021
1:37 p.m.: Ian Eagle and Charles Davis will call the Raiders’ Week 2 game at Pittsburgh for CBS.
1:19 p.m.: The Raiders will face an opposing team’s starters for the first time this preseason Sunday.
Shanahan said he plans on playing all of the 49ers starters during the third preseason game against the Raiders. Even the ones who have yet to play during the preseason.— Niners Nation (@NinersNation) August 23, 2021
1:12 p.m.: The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the Raiders, who are banged up at linebacker, still has interest in Seattle free-agent K.J. Wright, but money could be an issue. He recently visited with the team.
12:58 p.m.: Former Raiders’ controller Araxie Grant has denied doing any wrongdoing, according to the Sports Business Journal.
8:55 a.m.: Geno Atkins, who has been connected to the Raiders for a long time, is starting to visit teams. On the surface, the Raiders seem like they are set at defensive tackle, though.
Former #Bengals All-Pro and Pro Bowl DT Geno Atkins is visiting the #Seahawks today, per his agency @_SportsTrust. Fully cleared from surgery that short-circuited last season, Atkins could be big-time addition to Seattle’s D-line.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 23, 2021
August 21 (Game day, baby)
12:23 p.m.: Well, this is something. Looks like the Raiders will have quite the advantage on special teams tonight.
The Rams have placed punters Corey Bojorquez and Johnny Hekker on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) August 21, 2021
That leaves them without a punter in tonight's preseason game vs. the Raiders.
2:19 P.M.: It looks like Raiders’ starting linebacker Nicholas Morrow could be out for a couple of weeks after getting hurt Thursday. Perhaps a K.J. Wright addition is looming? The news, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal, on guard Richie Incognito, who was also hurt Thursday in a practice with the Rams, seems better.
Just an FYI on @Raiders Nicholas Morrow and Richie Incognito. Word is Morrow could be facing a multiple-week recovery. Incognito looks to be a much less significant situation.— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) August 20, 2021
2:02 p.m.: Former Raiders’ safety Jeff Heath has a new home.
8:57 a.m.: The Raiders may be in the market for a backup tackle and the Eagles’ Andre Dillard reportedly is receiving trade interest.

August 17 (Happy 58th birthday, Jon Gruden)
7:58 a.m.: Lots of Raiders’ practice injury news via The Athletic. Good news on some players and a familiar face is back:
Darren Waller is back at practice for the Raiders. He'd been out since the week before last.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) August 17, 2021
CB Isaiah Johnson and LB Divine Deablo are practicing for the Raiders. They'd missed the entirety of training camp on the active/physically unable to perform list to this point.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) August 17, 2021
S Karl Joseph is practicing for the Raiders. Like Waller, he'd been out since the week before last.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) August 17, 2021

10:55 a.m.: Darren Waller and Marcus Mariota injury updates:

9:42 a.m.: Free-agent linebacker K.J. Wright came in as the No. 67 best player in the NFL. He recently visited the Raiders. Seems like a pretty good value at this point, right?
There’s no way it should have taken 10 years for KJ to make the top 100 lol. Also, it’s wild KJ is on here and is still a free agent. pic.twitter.com/e01hE9GAXT— Dugar, Michael-Shawn (@MikeDugar) August 16, 2021
5:04 p.m.: UPDATE: Looking good.
4:40 p.m.: This is a positive sign for Darren Waller.
9:39 a.m.: There is some clarity on Darren Waller’s injury status. According to ESPN, Waller, who hasn’t practiced in 11 days, has an ankle injury. It is currently not expected to affect his Week 1 status.
2:16 p.m.: Another former Raider is publicly whining about the team.
First Arden Key …— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) August 11, 2021
Raiders gave him $22 mil to not make any plays and he’s frustrated. https://t.co/6FqahTwI11
8:35 a.m.: Jon Gruden got tricky and cancelled practice Wednesday morning right before it was to start as an in-camp reward for his players.
Just as @Raiders players were getting on the field for practice on Wednesday. According to two people with knowledge, it was a surprise reward for the players hard work thus far in camp. We'll get more word laterhttps://t.co/zTWn9lpkmw— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) August 11, 2021
2:46 p.m.: Baltimore Ravens rookie receiver Rashod Bateman may miss the season opener in Las Vegas.
From Inside Training Camp Live: #Ravens WR Rashod Bateman suffered a groin injury today and at the very least will be considered week-to-week. Evaluations are ongoing and it’s too early to know whether he’ll be sidelined to start the regular season. pic.twitter.com/caw0RwtDNq— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) August 10, 2021
8:18 a.m.: Tight end Darren Waller is still not practicing, but may be getting closer to returning to the field.
Darren Waller getting some agility work in off to the side with @Raiders training staff.— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) August 10, 2021
8:12 a.m.: The Raiders have added a fourth quarterback for the preseason.
The Raiders have signed QB Case Cookus, who's practicing today. In a corresponding move, they waived WR Trey Quinn.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) August 10, 2021
9:29 a.m.: Marcus Mariota likes being a Raider, but he admits he’s keeping his eye on starting opportunities around the NFL.
12:39 p.m.: The Gerald McCoy contract details are out:
Contract updates:— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 6, 2021
— The #Raiders gave veteran DT Gerald McCoy a 1-year deal worth up to $2M, source said. He gets a $150K signing bonus and has incentives worth $750K.
— The #Titans gave backup QB Matt Barkley a 1-year, $1.1M deal.
10:20 a.m.: The quarterback market has been reset and the Raiders and Derek Carr are watching. But because Carr is now in his 30s, I doubt he gets super close to this deal in his next contract.
8:51 a.m.: Darren Waller has missed his third straight day of training camp. The issue is undisclosed. Perhaps coach Jon Gruden will shed some light on the situation when he speaks Saturday,
Raiders players I don't see at practice: TE Darren Waller, S Tyree Gillespie, CB Shaun Crawford, S Karl Joseph.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) August 6, 2021
RB Jalen Richard (foot) is out indefinitely.
OT Kamaal Seymour, K Daniel Carlson, CB Isaiah Johnson, LB Divine Deablo, OT Devery Hamilton are on injury/illness lists.
August 5 (Happy anniversary to my wife, who was born a Raiders fan.)
11:22 a.m.: What an honor for Raiders’ legend Art Shell. You have to watch this video:
8:28 a.m.: This is something worth paying attention to. All these departures are no longer a coincidence.
According to 3 sources, the Raiders have hired or are in the process of hiring an outside law firm to deal with whatever issue is at the center of at least four top executives being dismissed/leaving the team.— Jason Cole (@JasonCole62) August 5, 2021
2:01 p.m.: A day after veteran tackle Sam Young retired, the Raiders signed veteran backup tackle Jeremiah Poutasi. He has played for five teams in six NFL seasons with with eight starts. He should be a roster-bubble player.
12:24 p.m.: It looks like Darren Waller is going to miss a little time, but there is no reason to currently think it is serious.
10:26 a.m.: There have now been four executives who have recently left the Raiders. What’s going on?
8:23 a.m.: It appears Darren Waller is missing his second straight day of practice for an unknown reason. I wouldn’t fret too much about it at this point.
Raiders players I don't see at practice today: TE Darren Waller, WRs Trey Quinn & Dillon Stoner, CB Nevin Lawson and Ss Tyree Gillespie & Karl Joseph.— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) August 4, 2021
CB Isaiah Johnson, LB Divine Deablo, OT Devery Hamilton, OT Kamaal Seymour and K Daniel Carlson are on injury/illness lists.
1:46 p.m.: Another Raiders’ executive has left — The Sports Business Journal reported Brandon Doll has resigned. He worked closely with former team president Marc Badain, who suddenly left the team last month.
8:01 a.m.: Second-year linebacker Tanner Muse looks like a fit for Gus Bradley’s defense.
