FYI on Nickell Robey-Coleman and @Raiders: The veteran CB is expected to visit with Raiders, but nothing official yet on signing— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) September 12, 2022
It is currently not known if Robey-Coleman is being added to the 53-man roster or the practice squad, and what is the corresponding move. Starting Raiders’ cornerback Anthony Averett departed Sunday’s 24-19 defeat to the Chargers with a thumb injury. It is not currently known how serious that injury is.
UPDATE: NFL Media is reporting Averett is going to have surgery and will likely be out, at least, a month.
#Raiders CB Anthony Averett suffered a broken right thumb, source says, and he’s headed for surgery. Averett likely misses at least a month, which means he could be headed to Injured Reserve.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 12, 2022
UPDATE: Averett was placed on the injured reserve.
UPDATE: The Raiders claimed cornerback Javelin Guidry off waivers from Arizona. He was there for just over a week after being claimed on waivers from the Jets. He is in his third season.
That means the Raiders will likely use Nate Hobbs on the outside a lot in the meantime.
Robey-Coleman, 30, has been in the league since 2013 and has played for the Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions. He was on the Lions practice squad for most of last season and played in one game. He has played in 127 NFL games with 30 starts, and has six career interceptions.
