8:26 a.m.: Former Raiders’ cornerback Nevin Lawson, who the team cut Monday, has signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Raiders wanted to keep him on the practice squad. But veteran corners after pretty popular on the open market these days.

8:55 a.m.: Nevin Lawson, cut by the Raiders on Monday, already has interest.

8:26 a.m.: Linebacker Cory Littleton restructured his contract again.

8:21 a.m.: This is going to be good.

September 16

1:49 p.m.: Carl Nassib, a hero in Monday night’s win, practiced Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. Also, defensive tackle Darius Philon was added to the injury report.

11:37 a.m.: Nothing much appeared to change at Raiders’ practice Thursday. It looks like Yannick Ngakoue has a chance to play Sunday at Pittsburgh. It doesn’t look good for Richie Incognito and we will see on Josh Jacobs. We should learn more Friday.

11:48 a.m.: The Raiders are signing offensive lineman Jordan Simmons from the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad. He replaces Denzelle Good, who is out for the season with a torn ACL. Simmons, who was on the Raiders’ practice squad in 2017-18, will be a backup.

5:51 a.m.: MADD MAXX DID IT. Raiders’ stud pass-rusher Maxx Crosby was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his two-sack performance against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. Congrats, sir.

September 14

1:35 p.m.: The Buffalo Bills have joined the Raiders as the only NFL teams that will require fans to be vaccinated to attend home games this season.

7:58 a.m.: For all the talk that Raiders’ cornerback Damon Arnette improved, he played just one defensive snaps Monday night. That’s not ideal for a No. 19 overall pick starting his second season.

1:12 p.m.: Justin “Jelly” Ellis, who the Raiders drafted in 2014, will face them Monday night.

8:13 a.m.: The running back-depleted Ravens have added a familiar name in time to face the Raiders.

September 9

12:01 p.m.: Raiders’ star tight end Daren Waller has beefed up his representation. Waller is entering the second of a four-year, $29 million deal. He is one of the great bargains in the game. Perhaps he is looking for a contract adjustment. He’s definitely earned it.

11:21 a.m.: Some interesting NFL vaccine stats. It looks pretty good.

1o:55 a.m.: Hey, numbers fans:

8:52 a.m.: The Raiders restructured the contract of linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski. But they still have some work to do so they have a little breathing room to add a piece or two.
