  Raiders to sign recently reinstated DL David Irving Raiders defensive line coach Rod Marinelli was Irving’s defensive coordinator in Dallas, which helps explain the connection. It’s anyone’s guess as to what Irving will look like or how soon he’ll be in game shape, but it’s a nice low-risk flyer for a team in need of pass-rushing help.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Hear from Head Coach Jon Gruden as he discusses COVID-19 and the precautionary measures the Raiders are taking. Following the Las Vegas Raiders ' win over the Carolina Panthers, Head Coach Jon Gruden met with Trayvon Mullen ready to play with an edge , sees the talent on the roster.

Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden seemingly put an end to speculation that his team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday might be postponed or moved a second time due to a The Raiders ' entire starting offensive line and a starting safety are on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

At a time when some political leaders say the nation is rounding the turn on COVID-19, a football leader is making a similar boast that simply isn’t backed up by reality.

“As an organization, we are on the cutting edge of beating the virus,” Raiders coach Jon Gruden claimed on Monday (via Vic Tafur of TheAthletic.com), a day after Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that Gruden’s team faces a significant fine and potential loss of a draft pick for its latest COVID-19 protocol breach. Gruden’s boast also comes a day after his team was blown out by the Buccaneers, thanks in part to an expectation that the Raiders proceed with the game as scheduled even though the entire starting offensive line wasn’t available for the three most important practice days prior to the game.
