Raiders' Donald Penn: Ending holdout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penn is expected to return to practice and end his 25-day holdout Tuesday, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

From the looks of it, Penn may to finish the last year of his contract that pays a $5.8 million base salary. He certainly deserves a raise, having made the Pro Bowl last season and only allowing one sack in 16 games. It'll be interesting to see how contract talks continue from here, but the Raiders are excited to have him back at practice with two preseason games to go and less than three weeks from the first regular season game.

Raiders' Cooper Helfet: Returns to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helfet (undisclosed) was removed from the Active/Non-Football Injury list Monday after passing a physical, freelance NFL reporter Adam Caplan reports.

Helfet had been on the NFI list since late July, with the Raiders providing no specifics regarding the injury. The 28-year-old has a lot of ground to make up to earn playing time over the final two exhibitions and is unlikely to be a major factor in the Raiders' passing game if he survives roster cuts.

Raiders' Jihad Ward: Activated from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (foot) was taken off the Raiders' Physically Unable to Perform list after passing a physical Monday, freelance NFL reporter Adam Caplan reports.

Ward underwent minor foot surgery in June, but has been out of a walking boot since early August. The 23-year-old had an up-and-down rookie season in 2016 and will likely play a backup role in the Raiders' defensive-line rotation to start the upcoming campaign.

Raiders' Connor Cook: Working as No. 3 quarterback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook worked behind fellow quarterbacks Derek Carr and EJ Manuel during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams, completing 9-of-15 passes for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Cook still has a solid chance at making the Raiders' final roster if he remains behind Manuel in the competition to back-up Carr, having outperformed Manuel during the team's second preseason game. Manuel has the edge in terms of experience, while Cook struggled mightily as a rookie in his first NFL start against the Texans during Oakland's season-ending playoff loss in early January. Cook projects to be the second quarterback off the bench once again during the Raiders' upcoming preseason tilt versus the Cowboys.
